About SEI/Aaron's, Inc.

SEI/Aaron's has been making dreams come true for its associates and customers since 1995.  As the largest franchisee of Aaron's, the nation's premier retailer of furniture, consumer electronics and home appliances provided via sales and lease ownership, SEI/Aaron's has grown to operate over 100 Aaron's stores in 11 states.  We've won Aaron's Franchisee of the Year award and been named to the Inc. 500 list as one of the fastest-growing companies in the USA, but we are most proud of the achievements of our 850 associates and our relationships with the 90,000 customers that choose to shop with us.

SEI/Aaron's was founded by Charles Smithgall and is currently led by his son, Chas Smithgall, CEO, and his partner, Dave Edwards, President and COO. Over the past 19 years, four company values have guided the leadership and growth of SEI/Aaron's: (1) A reputation for quality, integrity and responsibility, (2) Treating our associates and our customers as we would want to be treated, (3) Development of an outstanding leadership team and (4) Planned financial growth.  As SEI/Aaron's seeks to reach its goal of 200 stores and 20 associate millionaires by the end of 2018, we are on the hunt for talented individuals to join our winning team.  Are you interested in a new career?
