we had great customers but i felt like management was lacking. also the company says they promote within which they don't. i acted as the sales manager for months. i was never offered the position nor was i given a pay raise when i took on the responsibilities of the sales manager.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Liberty, TX – June 23, 2014
Pros: performance based, income, chance to meet a lot of people
Cons: regional manager, at times you can have some unique situations when visiting a customers home
As a store manager you have a lot duties to perform. You have to sell, collect, manage your inventory, make sure goals are met, and oversee your staff. What I learned from this company is like running your own business. Every month when we had a managers meeting reviewing profit and loss statements of the stores in the district I always looked to improve – more... on things to be at the top or near the top. This was a valuable learning experience for me. Management was pretty good, but my direct supervisor was not a team player. As a team leader he rarely visted my store, which there was little need because i was always above company standards in profit, but when I did call upon him he wasn't there for me. I had staffing issues at my store and he wouldn't give me the help I needed which led to me working six days a week, 12-14 hours, for six months.The divisonal managers overall were pretty good. I had some pretty good co-workers, most were really helpful when you needed them. The hardest part of my job was staffing issues. The most enjoyable part was the quarterly bonuses for your hard work. – less

On a typical day at work you perform many different duties on the sales team. I learned how to handle may different situations with customers and employees. There is nothing hard about working with Aarons Sales and Lease. I absolutely loved getting to know new people, building friendships with new employees, and learning about new products.

Working at Aarons there is never a dull moment. Assisting customers, ensuring the showroom and warehouse are in top shape, and delivering merchandise in a courteous and professional manner it's always a rewarding challenge.
Sales, Lease and Ownership (Former Employee), Tallahassee Fl, – June 10, 2014
Pros: paid every week.
Cons: long hours, pay rate was not equal to your title, no job security.
I worked there for almost a year before i was considered to receive a raise. The raise never happened, The job security was not there and the long hour made it difficult to spend time with my family. This company will not last if they so not look at their business practices.
Manager Trainee (Former Employee), Ada, Ok – June 10, 2014
Pros: off on sunday
Cons: dangerous property removal, dishonest management, long days, high pressure.
Working at Aaron's Inc. was horrible! You started your day calling customers from a pre-generated call sheet who had not yet made their payments in an attempt to collect from them. After that it was usually lunch time. After eating on the fly, you had to set up a list of home visits for people that you could not reach on the phone to attempt to collect – more... from them in person. If they did not have payment on hand, you often had to remove the property from their homes in sometimes unsafe homes or unsafe areas. Most of the property had been destroyed or was filthy and infested with various insects (mostly roaches).
Their was incredible pressure to collect from the customers and you never knew when you were going to get home each day. You literally have 1 day off each week on Sunday, as they work you the other 6 days and it is depressing! I saw my manager lie to customers on multiple occasions about repairing their product covered by the store warranty because it costs money from the store PNL (Profit and Loss).
This is a dishonest, dangerous business! Avoid this company! – less

Aaron's would teach you to build and fix thing you could never do be before... I loved my co-worker well some of them... The management sucks to me cause the care more about their costumers then their employees then again... I am don't get me wrong I had fun at work all the time but if you want to have a life Aaron's is not the place for you to work
