General Manager (Current Employee), Oakdale, CA – September 23, 2014
Pros: incredible teamwork among the management team
Cons: management is required to work without a day off, sunday the store is closed so that is the only day off that is given.
I put over 100% of myself into my work. My success is based on my personal goals to achieve the maximum I can towards company goals. I have worked for this company for many years from when it was owned by a franchise to being a corporate store. The company standards are consistent and achievable. The other managers I work with have also been working – more... long term. Employee retention is at a higher rate than most companies. I enjoy teaching my crew how to succeed themselves and achieve great things within this company. The challenges are making all customers happy with the service and results we provide at our store. – less
Sales Manager (Current Employee), Sacramento, CA – September 21, 2014
Pros: helping people get what they need or want
Cons: can be long days
A typical day at work would be getting the day planned and organized, setting your team a goal to accomplish and getting things done. Selling product to new and current customers, as well as collecting payments on existing customers. Learning how to overcome difficult situations with different solutions. Managing time, people and other unforeseen obstacles – more... and still getting the job done. Working in a team environment like this, is just like in a family. You work 40-45 hours in a week and sometimes more. The hardest part of the job is that it takes a big part of your day with the long hours. Enjoyable are the times you know you were able to help a person with getting something they really needed and were otherwise not able to buy. – less
Great job if you don't like sitting at the desk all day.
Product Technician (Former Employee), Springdale, AR – September 20, 2014
Load and unloading merchandise. I learned how to install/uninstall merchandises. Co-workers work great but management lacked working as a team. Hardest part of the job is moving merchandise to a upper floor.
Customer Accounts Manager (Former Employee), Grenada, MS – September 17, 2014
The GM had great bias among the employees and would throw a fit and threaten certain employees for even trying to get a drink and others were allowed to do anything at all that they wanted including sleep or disappear for hours.
Aaron's is a good company, but stay clear of the National Support Center
IT CUSTOMER SUPPORT ANALYST (Current Employee), Kennesaw, GA – September 13, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: 10 minute breaks and poor management
Aaron's has really good benefits which makes up for the pay not being extremely competitive. The management at the National Support Center is severely lacking. There is no consistency in scheduling and you have to fight to use your earned vacation time.
Sales Manager (Current Employee), SC – September 8, 2014
Cons: every stinking thing
Though I enjoy providing excellent service to loyal customers, it is definitely safe to say that Aarons Prey for Pay Company. Given the poor quality of merchandise and outlandish cost for low income poverty stricken consumers to reach ownership, Aarons ranks right with the worst of predatory organizations.
Sold a bill of goods along with most of Aarons – more... disappointed associates, I bought into the lies line and sinker. You're constantly set up to fail and are always at the mercy of how miserable a human your Regional or GM is that day. Run.....Run.....Run!!!!!! – less
