Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 February 2017
Aaron's Sale and Lease is an amazing company and concept over all. The specific location I was hired at was very disorganized and management was poor. The work place was very hostile and contained many issues. The hardest part of my job was picking up the slack when others were not doing their job properly. The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with customers and meeting sale goals.
Fun Environment, just not much of a market in town.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Chatham-Kent, ON – 8 February 2017
Fun company to work for. Lots of cool incentives and promotions that change monthly. Hard environment for a sales person however. Very limited market, and requires a certain customer base which is hard to find in our area. Lots of leg work and long hours for decent pay. Overall not a bad company depending on your role.
Punctual and efficient individual seeks a position as part of a team with opportunities for professional growth and development. Motivated to provide

A good place to work for and had some good employees learnt a lot about the customers I delivered to. The manager was a great person and great to get along with if you had any questions he would try his best to help you. co workers where easy to to get along as well
Management Trainee (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 July 2016
Incompetent upper management. First: they were unable to manage interview schedule (RED FLAG). Applied for sales Managers position, was shortlisted in top 3. After a week was offered Management in Trannie position. Another guy got the Job as a sales manager, with no Furniture sales or even sales experience and a totally fake management resume (another Story). He quits within 2 days, they hired another guy next day. I’m like totally shocked; I mean I am the MT, I should have been offered the SM job. After reading other posts, my story aligns with others in the same company. AS a management trainee I worked as a cleaner (cleaning sofas with cat and dog hair), merchandising associate, CS and loader etc.

Associate (Current Employee) – Ontario – 7 April 2016
Nothing but lies and deceit. Crooked, at every level, especially upper management. No room for advancement, but they will make you believe there is. You get treated worse than garbage by the clientele, select few keep you going. No support.
breakfast lunch and dinner at the store with only a half hour break. awful pay.
Aaron's Sales and Lease Ownership (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 8 March 2016
I really liked working for the GM, he was a pretty great boss as were the rest of the team in store. Unfortunately upper management didn't listen to us, and complained when we weren't doing well even though we knew why we were failing. Typically slow due to where we were but it was a fun job overall. Learned about filing and expaned my CRM skills.
Hour break, great co-workers
Not enough support from corporate, unrealistic goals for small store
Is a fun work environment until things got stressful
General Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 February 2016
My day consisted of doing collection calls. I also did inventory on a weekly basis. I did sales and had to deal with customer issues. I took payments did what I had to do to keep the store running smoothly.
Manager in training/ Customer Accounts Manager (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 27 October 2015
Over all it was a fun job. I was getting trained to be the cam. There was some political problems that happened when I got there. the boss had not realized the sales manager at the time had opened my paystub to know how much I was making and everyone quit. other than that the job was fun the boss was great and the work atmosphere is built to be fun for both the employees and the customers.
Pay was slightly above average but lots of overtime available

Customer Services Representative (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 13 May 2015
As a CSR, typical duties are selling furniture and explaining the leasing process/price options, upkeep and cleaning the showroom, processing payments, weekly inventory, taking and placing phone calls, and balancing the till at the end of the night. I personally did not like the hours, but maybe they are good for a retail setting. This location had very few staff when I was there, so I always felt bad about asking for time off because it left someone there by themselves. Aaron's 'culture' did not mesh well with me and my opinions, and I often found it a very negative place to be.
Product Technician (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 4 May 2015
Terrible place to work. as you get paid close to nothing 12/h + "Bonus" per month that you hardly get to see. because the employess that make the sells fail to be organized. You will work like a dog from 9 am until 9 pm or more some days.. You will go to places that are unsafe... You will lift over 500 lbs furniture with a partner... You will struggle with costumers.. since they are usually all drug abusers or people that has been in jail and can't have good credits.
The Manager and the staff was amaizing and friendly
