"Like many retail companies, Aaron Brothers does not treat its employees well, not in compensation or in giving store locations the correct resources (like adequate floor coverage or the right tools) to do their jobs correctly."

"Complete loser of a company. Only the downtrodden stay here"

What do you like about working at Aaron Brothers?

"The paycheck. The commute is doable. I get a discount."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Sure. Don't bother. You'll regret it. This is not a place for successful managers to be."

What don't you like about working at Aaron Brothers?

"Most everything. The salary, the work load, the hours required, stress level, constant mindless floor moves, trucks delivering in the middle if the night, no maintenance or repair of stores and equipment, DM always trying to reinvent the wheel, rude cheap coupon customers who want everything for free, 30 min lunches, no breaks. Working off the clock. Emails and DM calls on your day off without pay. Running to make bank deposits with your gas and no reimbursement. Always not up to standard no matter what you do. The threat of an auditor visit daily. Registers and computers old and non functioning with no hope for a workable update. Always a struggle to do your job with the failing equipment provided from 1990."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"You guys need to get a grip. New senior management is needed. It will take years to get out of this mess."

"Nice Clean very quite environment. 45 hours work week is good to balance your life."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"You need to ask questions to the interviewer .They are not exactly telling your job description.If you are interested try to visit several stores so you can feel how it is going to be working in these huge stores with thousand and thousands of frames and arts by yourself."

What don't you like about working at Aaron Brothers?

"They are staffed very very low. The whole store was run by 4 -5 people. The biggest challenge is Frame and art supplies deliveries every week. They arrived after midnight and it is so hard to find some to work for 5 hours for that hard job. Plano-gram is created by cooperate office and ask you to change the big store from one end to another without enough staffing."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Immediately hire persons for delivery and put away the frames and art supplies.learn how to frame the arts asap as framers usually work Monday thru Friday.prepare yourself to get up at the middle of the night to do the deliveries and rest few hours and go back to work.if you are a manager coming from busier environment with lots of employees this place is not for you."
