    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Aaron's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great prices for clearance items and the occasional guest smile

    Cons

    Scheduled shifts don't mean anything. Hr does not care about you, your wellbeing, or ethics but pretend to. If you work hard and do a good job more is expected of you vs if you don't even perform to your job requirements it's expected that the hard worker pick up the slack. The only position that is not required to get on the truck or be a back up delivery person is the CSR.
