Sales Manager (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 16, 2017
Working at Aaron's was very stressful. If you worked in collections. Your job was to call customers about payments if they were late. If they didn't answer. You would make a house visit. If they couldn't pay. You would pick up the product.
Load Appliances, How to put together certain furniture, and sales experience, laid back but hard working when help is needed, sales and delivering, Field Visits for people who refuse to pay, The employees

Interacting with new pails every day and seing new places every day
Customer Account Manager (Former Employee) – York, PA – October 12, 2017
a good place to start but unwilling to pay any real money unless you devote 7+ years an become part of the club. if you bring up a problem that is not in there immediate best interest then it is overlooked.
hours vary everyday. You have to stay until the job is done so if you have to have a set start and stop time this job may be difficult. Managers are nice and will work with you as much as they can. There are many opportunities to advance if you want to and work hard enough.
Typical day at work starts by clocking in, checking to see what needs to be done that day, getting that days paperwork, loading up the truck, delivering to customers, pick up merchandise from customers, service/repair customers merchandise, lots of driving and out of the store if the store is making sales.
I've learned quite a bit by working here. A lot I can use in my everyday life, how to clean things, fix them, move in/out organize rooms. Seems like common knowledge but you'd be surprised how many people don't know.
Management is what you make of it. If your get your work done and do what you're asked things will go smoothly. If you make up excuses as to why you're not getting things done and argue about it all day multiple times a week you're going to have a bad time. There tends to be favoritism, even if you've been there for a while expect the favorite to get away with a lot. No being on your phone, no showing up late, etc applies to everyone especially if someone keeps (for ex.) showing up late then management will be stricter with everyone. Collective punishment, kind of like when the whole class gets their field trip cancelled because one kid decide to egg the principals house.
Workplace culture tends to be like every other place. Set or rules, morals, etc to make the company look good and discourage bad behavior.
The hardest part of the job is when there's nothing to do because sales slow down. School starting up, graduations, college, etc keeps people from buying.
Most enjoyable part of the job is that it isn't hard labor, improving social skillsmore... by meeting new people, being out on the road, peeling plastic off of electronics and appliances.less
Productive and demanding workplace with great benefits
Divisional Sales/Management Team (Current Employee) – Slidell, LA – October 9, 2017
Start with strategy meetings with sales and collections to map out day and set goals. Load product for delivery. Conduct week inventory. Continuously interview for new talent. Customer interaction through out the day. Mid day follow up on strategy meetings to evaluate progress for meeting goals. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with the customers.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – October 9, 2017
On any given day I help customer's with their online Ecom orders, or I help the file a formal complaint from the store they are currently leasing from. I think the hardest part is that most of the stores don't know about the online process and tell the customer anything, which makes it hard for us to explain the correct procedures. I like talking to different people through out the day, makes it enjoyable.
I wouldn't recommend working here to anyone. The management is impossible to deal with and you have to beg for any time off or have a family emergency. You'll work 12 hour days and they'll try to make you work 15 for slave wages. don't work here
discounts on over priced furniture
long hours, no time off, poor pay, bad benefits, bully managers
Working with Aarons was great experience from the teamwork of all the employees to having great customers. The work wasn't to hard and lifting was a breeze but we did work together a lot to make things happen easy.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Mocksville, NC – October 7, 2017
Fast paced work environment. Rapid changes that are rolled out at times with out thought at what affect it might have on the store or how the store might be able to handle it with the small foot prints available to them. Upper management very supportive in trying to help to implement rollout if possible.
