    Pros

    There is always opportunity for advancement for those that perform. Management is always looking to mold the next GM.

    You will have to put in a lot of hours. Put in the time and you will be rewarded. Kiss your Saturday good bye.

    Advice to Management

    Continue training your potential management. Push to build your blue chip. Take potential GM to P & L meetings.

    Pros

    Sundays Off, Only because Federal Law prohibits debt collection agencies from being open on sundays.

    Cons

    Long hours, unacheiveable goals, micromanagement, company more worried about pinching pennies than setting their stores up for success, nothing efficient about this company. Every level of management is just a title...they treat you like a child unless they expect you to go above and beyond your job responsponsibilities, then you are a "manager" and expected to do whatever is in best interest of the company

    Advice to Management

    Take time doing day to day tasks so you do not become out of touch with the reality of working at the store level. Do more to set your employees up for success rather than putting them at a blatant disadvantage.

    Pros

    Money. No Sunday's can't give anymore pros. But this wanted 20 word minimum so I will type this. Job seeker beware

    Lied to from day one about hours. Always short staffed. Turnover at Gm level was over 50% a year. Collectors were more at 100% turnover

    Treat your employees right and stop lying. Maybe the turnover will stop

    Pros

    Long hours and opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    It's designed for people with low income knowing they'll either be late on payments or wont be able to pay. Then your encouraged to act like jerks to the customers to either get payments or get back the merchandise. It's a recipe for a stressful work environment.

    I have been working at Aaron's (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a great workplace culture. Customer service and satisfaction is always a top priority. They have specific to-dos and priority roles for each position. Also, they encourage yeam building and community involvement.

    Cons

    With specific roles for each position, one can be easily overwhelmed especially on team member off days or short staffed locations. ALso, for management there is very little work/ life balance. 50 hours per week minimum is very taxing and one can get worn out easily.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge that working managers have a need to possess some level of work/life balance and dont expect everyone to 'live' at their place of work.
