    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to prove yourself

    Cons

    Workdays can be very long

    Advice to Management

    Doesnt really matter because a lot of the main problems can be solved by immediate upper management. Its the COO & VPs that make decisions

    I have been working at Aaron's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Great support system. Agile shop and practices radical candor. Good work life balance, with option to work remote occasionally. Tech side encourages cross team communication and actively gives us ways to go about it. Community service forward, always options to volunteer.

    Cons

    There are definitely opportunities for advancement, but it can be a bit slow to happen. Benefits could be better, specifically maternity and paternity policy.

    I worked at Aaron's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There were many pros to working for this company. Was very family oriented. And the people throughout the organization were a pleasure to work with. The health benefits were good. And the 401k plan was superior. Sick time plus rolling vacation time.

    Cons

    The downside was the sales goals were lofty. Leading to little bonus potential. Raises just weren't there even if you were schedule adherent and sales growth was documented. Needless to say, don't expect to make much or promote anytime in the future. Most positions are dead end. And the hours subpart.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the reward factor for proven employees. Especially those who show up every day, do what they're supposed to and succeed at it.

    Pros

    Your on your own to run your business at times

    Cons

    New management cut hours to the point all the good people left and they got rid of 90% of the experienced management rto people and are toying with centralized collections and Take away all your tools to get the customer to pay. They haven’t thought it through the top VPS are puppets for the head guys who don’t know wtf they are doing as far as changes go
    They micro manage everyone to the point all the great people are gone or planning on leaving

    Advice to Management

    Quit let someone who knows rto run the business you took the best rto company in the world and ruined it
