Pros: Great benefits, promote from within, competitive pay, achievable bonus structure, good training
Cons: Retail = long hours and sometimes must work Holidays.
Never have I worked for an employer that was so involved in the community and their employees. With Aaron's - The Smith Group Franchise, I felt like I mattered and my hard work was appreciated. I started as a Customer Service Rep with no experience and moved up to General Manager within the 4 years I was with the company. Even when I was a lowly little CSR my Regional Manager took notice in the work I did and coached me into promotion after promotion. It came with a lot of hard work, dedication, and training, but he at least took the time to make sure I was given every opportunity to move up in the company if I wanted to. And I saw this with every other employee too. They have excellent training programs that really give you the tools to move into management positions and really climb the corporate ladder. They always look to promote from within and I really like that because you can really build a lifelong career. And of course I wanted to! The benefits, bonuses, and compensation were great and I loved the people I worked with! I would definitely recommend working at Aaron's - Smith Group because they are the kind of employer where the CEO and managers genuinely care about their employees and that is a very rare find.
