This company was a delight to work for and I would gladly work here again. I was sad to leave this job for relocation. And I always felt like a valuable part of the company.

Rewarding opportunity
Manager (Current Employee) –  NHFebruary 24, 2016
Great company to work for. Not sure why there are negative reviews. I would assume these are from people that have an issue with hard work and being rewarded. Full benifits, guaranteed 40 plus hours, 2 weeks paid vacation, 7 paid holidays and Sundays always off. Wonderful family feel environment. Very easy to move up and make a career out of.
Pros
Great benifits. Great people. Steady job.
Cons
Long (ish) hours

Manager Trainee (Former Employee) –  Syracuse, NYFebruary 17, 2016
The people that work there are just as ghetto as the customers. Bad news all around. Managers are bullies and will get you dismissed asap. Shady business practices. Especially calling people. No professionalism at all.

GM (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYFebruary 14, 2016
This is a fast paced job at all levels. There are pros and cons like any job, but the cons far out weigh the pros. Especially at SEI Aarons!!! Double standards run rampant, they flip flop their position on the way they want their business run so many times you never know the right way they want it done. They also preach about values and how they treat their associates, but said values only apply when it's to their benefit. They will transfer you from store to store to try and improve the districts numbers. This move usually means a pay cut as you can earn 16.5% of the quarterly profit from a store, but the move usually means you went from a profitable store to a unprofitable store. They tell you to run the store as if it's your business, but then micro manage you to no end and question your every decision. Favoritism runs rampant through upper level management. If your not into brown nosing or being one of the "good ol boys" then be prepared to be targeted for dismissal. SEI is the largest Aarons franchise, maybe it would have been better at a corporate store. Hitting numbers and making a profit aren't the only things you have to be worried about here. So be prepared for long hours, high turnover and high stress levels.
Pros
Building relationships with customers and co-workers
Cons
Not enough time to list them all.

Great job for anyone getting out of highschool.
Customer Accounts Manager (Former Employee) –  West Warwick, RINovember 13, 2014
its was a good job, i worked 12hr days with and hour break, made an average of 150 phone calls before lunch with intend to contact customers before lunch. Learned a lot of customer care skill as well as good work ethics and time management. As far as management it was lenient but great, most co-workers were comfortable there. Hardest part of the job ill say is projecting what your revenue will be at months end, and strive everyday to achieve that goal with the fact that things might not always goes as planned. Best part of the job is the relationships you build with the customers, it great to have customers walk into your store and you're on first name basis with them.
Pros
1 hour lunches, Small Crew (7 employees min) plus great benefits.
Cons
Advancement, Lack of Reviews, lots of down time when not busy
