I have been working at Aaron's full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

This company allows you to have fun at work, be around others to team build, and interact with customers on a daily basis! Does it get any better!?

Cons

I guess if you hate having fun then this is a downside. Also, if you don't want to further your career and learn a lot about yourself then this could be seen as a downside.

    I worked at Aaron's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There isn't a great reason. They tell you that there is a "cap" on pay. They give you raises of 10 cents. They have ridiculous goals, and even in the summer, they expect you to conquer skips, charge offs, or whatever else. You only get commission if you hit your new customer goal, instead of total sales. The VP of Great Lakes has no heart, and like any other retail gig, he has no idea about talent. I went to the GM Boot Camp, which is an amazing training tool, yet the RM in Chicago, doesn't enforce any of it.

    Cons

    The GM's have their hands tied about staffing, compensation, and are just bad at training. The GM at 1140 and 1147 know what they are doing, but the rest of that good old boy network is a joke.
    Do the math, they say.
    Do not work here. It is straight up clown college.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the VP, Chicago RM. Give proper cost of living wages.
