Great job and company
Sales Manager (Current Employee), Charleston, SCJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: advancement opportunity, compensation, benefits
Cons: hours, poor work/home balance
Aaron's is a great company to work for. There is endless opportunity and great benefits. You get paid for what you do. Work hard, and you'll make good money. Sales and accounts each have there benefits and downsides. For sales, the selling aspect is nothing. It's all of the work involved with merchandising, delivering, inventory, etc. Accounts are tough because you're trying to hold customers accountable to pay their renewal. Either position provides a lot of experience valuable to any career.

Only a good job if you like who you work with
Sales Manager (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: good health insurance, paid weekly
Cons: long hours, impossible goals.
Aaron's only cares about the numbers. Whether you are on the phones all day calling your nons or you are on the phone making sales calls, if you do not hit your numbers, you get written up. I worked under 3 different GMs and 2 different RMs. I have always enjoyed my job because the people I worked with were really fun to be around. Once the 2nd GM left, it's been a nightmare. Everything is very unorganized and chaotic. I am the SM but I am doing GM duties and CAM duties. I didn't mind doing it with the 2 older GMs but I don't like the way I am being treated now.

Fun place to work long hours.
General Manager (Former Employee), Johnson City, TNJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: good pay, fun place to work, something different every day.
Cons: long hours, no family life
You work collections and sales daily. The worst part of the job is going to visit peoples houses. A lot of very dirty places. I learned a lot working for Aaron's. I went around to different stores and helped out several other General Managers with inventory and other aspects of the business.

Good place to get management experience
Sales Manager (Former Employee), Vidalia, GAJanuary 19, 2015
Aaron's is a good place to get management experience due to the high turnover rate. You have a number of different employees so you quickly learn different methods to motivate employees. The job is based on preset goals that take total dedication to attain. You must be able to work a flexible schedule because you may be asked to work long hour to obtain monthly goals. In the event that you reach the goals as prescribed the rewards are substantial but it takes a total team commitment to obtain them and the long hours make it difficult because people have lives but the company doesn't attain for that aspect in the objectives.

Used to be better
Product Technician (Former Employee), Baytown, TXJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: enviroment was fun at the beginning.
Cons: took a bad turn and was worked more, and paid less.
Worked past midnight. Constantly. Never saw my family.

Worked there 2 years and and barely "earned" $1.00 raise. Industry became over saturated with rent to own companies, and Aaron's had no plan for it.

Manager began fluffing numbers and massaging sales only to send us to pick up merchandise in less than 3 months. Constantly overselling customers more than they could afford. Bed bugs were a problem.

Hardest I've ever worked
Sales Manager (Former Employee), Dundalk, MDJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: decent pay, some opportunity to advance.
Cons: long days, short breaks, very physically intensive.
As a sales manager your responsibility is setting up the sales floor, and moving product to the loading dock when it is sold. I ended up doing the job of a delivery person because the locations I worked at were short staffed. Moving and assembling furniture for 10-12 hours a day is no easy task.

Bad work enviroment
Manager Trainee (Former Employee), Hermitage, TNJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: sundays off.
Cons: everything else.
I worked for Aaron's for 6 months. In my time there I was directed to call customers on a daily basis, which was fine considering the line of work. However, for customers who were very late on payments I was told to call multiple times a day. One such incident included calling a customer every 30 mins until we got an answer. This was very excessive. I work from 8 A.M. till 9 P.M. every day and after calling for a few hours I was on the road until closing. Pay was very low and work morale was horrible. My general manager made firing threats on a weakly basis, which he thought would get better results. The used furniture was never cleaned. The prices and total amount customers would pay was way too much for the cheap products Aaron's was selling as high quality. Do not work for such a company. Run away.

absolutely awful
customer service sales (Former Employee), hillsboro ohioJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: close to home
Cons: money, commission is blown way out of wack, manager very double sided, work load
worked as a customer service sales person. You have to buy your own shirts that you are required to wear for 40.00 to 50.00 a piece. This comes out of your first check. So first check is nothing. You get paid 9.00 an hour and they will not go higher. Say you will get eval once a year and get raise then. That never happened. You work with a red headed manager that talks about everyone to every person there and then when you confront her that you were told she talks about you she says the person that told you was a liar. She will get in the middle of your sales and end up taking them over. Then you do not get your extra 1.00 to 5.00 a sale commission. They want you to do 60 sales a week. This is impossible. Then it is 60 new sales every two weeks. This is still impossible in this area where there are two other rent to own type companies less than one mile from us with better deals and quality furniture. Told you would earn an extra 300.00 to 400.00 a month commission. This is not possible at this store.
