General Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Pierce, FL – February 5, 2016
It is fun to work with the employees at the store. However upper management has no solid direction. Each member of upper management gave different directions of what to do with the store and they barely communicated the idea to each other. Instead made store associates do the same job over and over again.

There is no work life balance the pay is not sufficient enough for the work that is done management could be better The hardest part of the job is trying to meet impossible goals set for the accounts department the enjoyable part of the job is meeting different people everyday
Customer Service Technician/Deliveries (Former Employee) – Brady, TX – January 29, 2016
Decent place to work, if you don't mind doing the job of two for half price. Management and staff were great, just demands too much for the pay. Your home time will be almost non-exsistant, so yes you get tons of overtime, and they dont mind paying it, but a delivery driver should be making half as much more than compensated.
Great job for someone who likes to be on their own.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – January 28, 2016
I was a driver, it was pretty easy only when management didn't get involve you could start your day with 10 delivery's and end up with 15 and they still expect you back at the same time. All the furniture, electronics, and appliances that were used were no good!! And the store sold it like that!! I was never given proper training of how to assemble or work some machines. There was a lot of over time and you would get a dollar for every delivery you made which added up. Most holidays you would get off and paid.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Towson, MD – January 22, 2016
Job seems like a door opener for better jobs but customers are ratchet always taking things out on you and so does the staff. My boss is great but the people above him are nasty people. Possibly the worst job I've ever had. Long hours and not enough pay for the bs you put up with.
Working for Aaron's is an experience, reason is, you learn all aspect's of the job. From customer service, technical issues with merchandise, inventory, management skills, planning and goal structure. Yet job seems to always be on the line if the quotas aren't met. So the job security isn't really there but I've been there going on 3yrs haven't advanced much and spend lot more time there than being at home working 9-9 hours which isn't bad unless your getting $17hr for the stress. Yet a job is a job and this job is good to know you can put up with work and work hard.
long hours, not enough pay, write ups when not hitting goals monthly, no job security
The job was easy foe me because I can sell just about anything to anyone. The environment was fun but when the work needed to get done it got done. Some days were a little stressful mainly every Tuesday (inventory).
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Chickasha, OK – January 18, 2016
A typical day at work involved making sales calls, collecting customer payments, dealing with customer issues over the phone, cleaning the sales floor and furniture, and resolving customer complaints. There was also a fair share of helping with set up of displays on the floor. Moving furniture was a definite and sometimes you help stage merchandise and set up as well. I learned that most people have bad attitudes, but some people are honest and easy going. Management could use some work, but for the most part they are considerate and helpful. My co-workers were knowledgeable and fun to be around most times. The hardest part of the job is the multitasking about customer complaints and dealing with idiots. The most enjoyable part of the job is attaining your sales bonuses and watching movies in your down time.
manager trainee (Former Employee) – El Mirage, AZ – January 13, 2016
Worked for Aarons for 1 year and the job it self is great but so many people get passed for promotions due to Gender and Race...which i have first hand witnessed. .HR does nothing because the entire west reg in Az are all buddies and have affairs with staff and no repercussions....they just need to replace the Jr reg mgr B.E and that division would rock! I am not a bitter ex employee..left on great terms but someone needs to do something before another major law suit happens again.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – January 10, 2016
This was my first job ever. The management was amazing and they really worked around my school schedule. The company was going through some adjustments and it got a little messy and confusing towards the end of my time there. The new management was highly disliked.
