I worked with great staff and customers. Everyday was exciting and new.... not a lot of pressure to do anything. we were encouraged to have fun with the customers as we worked and we built a family relationship with them.
Manager (Current Employee) – Store level employee – November 13, 2018
The corporate level management has ujrealistic goals and no matter what you do (even if you achieve those goals) it is never good enough. They show great favoritism to people they either worked with before or are friends with and give them all of the advancement opportunities rather than cultivate and promote from the pool of existing talent. The corporate management will also give you no support if you are understaffed, they will expect that you can handle it. You will also not be compensated for your position , delivery drivers make more than management . You work manditory overtime if you are management which is your compensation to make more than the rest of the staff. All in all it's just a horrible place to work. The only people who excel are awful humans and sometimes not even then. I've worked here a long time and it's a shame it used to be a wonderful company.
Delivery Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Sayre, PA – November 12, 2018
Fun delivering merchandise to people's homes and dealing with the customers. Work load is reasonable. Hours sometimes a little long and it would be nice to have two consecutive days off. Pay totally sucks, and there is no opportunity for advancement or raises.
ASSISTANT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – November 9, 2018
I hope that all Aaron's facilities are not as ours is. We have poor leadership, the rules change on a daily basis, and there is no accountability from the powers that be. The blame is constantly shifted away from the one person that creates the uncertainty, and deserves the blame.
There is flexibility with time needed off, etc.
Too many to name. The biggest is the inconsistency, and lack of leadership from the General Manager.
Customer Account Manager (Current Employee) – Douglasville, GA 30134 – November 8, 2018
Working at barons was very easy going for the most part. Clock in, get a cup of coffee and start the task for the day ! I was on my own for the majority of the day unless helping the guys out on a delivery job.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Neosho, MO – November 8, 2018
Try to collect money owed to the company. Prepare to be yelled at if the entire team does not meet unrealistic sale goals. Always trying to find customers houses after customers move without letting the company know.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – November 4, 2018
Long hours. They hired me for a CAA position, but I was mainly on the truck making deliveries getting less pay then those who started out. My scheduled time of working and getting off was never met. I guess the discount on merch. Was nice but overall was not satisfied with Aaron's as a company, nor with how some of their employees deals with/ talks about their customers.
Manager Trainee (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – November 2, 2018
Honestly my direct supervisors were absolutely fantastic. everything else though. never again. i would literal rather terminally incapacitate myself than ever willing work for that company again. my loyalty to my direct supervisors is the only reason i stayed so long. after they were systematically fired one by one and it was just me I quit.
your life is literaly going to waste away into a pit of nothingness there
Customer service representative/Sales (Former Employee) – Mustang, OK – November 2, 2018
This store does not have any leadership or managers that know what they are doing. Since they treat their employees so terrible, no one stays so no one is trained well enough to lead. they do not pay well, or fairly. this company pays males more than females and rarely gives raises. super unorganized, and expect way too much of employees that they treat so poorly.
As a delivery driver, we get paid decently, but it's not enough to improve life. If you live bare minimum or have roommates, then this is a great job. If you're trying to start a family or build a life for yourself, you can do better. Good luck getting promoted, especially as a driver. Over a year, and they still won't promote me.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – South Carolina – November 1, 2018
Been with the company over a decade. Past few years have gone down hill significantly. At one point, they seemed to know who they were and cared about their associates. Those days are clearly gone. They recruit saying” No Sunday’s...Paid Holidays” this is also no longer true. Not only do you work certain holidays, but the Sunday proceeding or following that holiday. Quality of life doesn’t exist with this company. They seem to think they are a retail company. They behave like people don’t know they’re rent own. Identity crisis usually leads to bankruptcy. I would not be surprised to see them bankrupt in the near future. Feels like a squeeze of profit from a greedy board. It used to feel much more human. You can also time warp in this company. Travel from one division to another, and see the difference. Quite unbelievable. Practices, or “policy” changes like underwear. All in all, stay away if you want a career that values your effort and hard work. This is your run of the mill, work you till your spent and then replace you, type business. Like a said, over a decade and I could be a first week employee for all they care. Run away!
