    I have been working at Aaron's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Guaranteed 5 hours overtime weekly, nice sales incentives, small but obtainable bonuses, knowledgeable and patient managers, nice work environment.

    Cons

    Just moving stuff. I'm a desk jockey by nature so moving furniture isn't always my favorite lol. In my position it is not frequent so I don't mind too much.

    Advice to Management

    Tell others your story! No company is perfect but I like to think that you are a bit above most in quality

    Everyone understands the need to change the business, but come to a consensus at the senior level before executing. The constant changing of minds creates uncertainty for stores.

    I worked at Aaron's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get to be close with customers and build great relationships

    Cons

    Upper management, no true leadership, too much emphasis on nonessential things, no quality of life

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees better hours and pay for what they have to deal with, Aaron's has always been about never on Sunday, until recently, at least let people have that one day out of there. Also, give more respect to your female managers, having male parts is not a job requirement for a manager position.
