    Pros

    I met a few downtrodden souls who, like myself, were very oppressed by this job. Made some nice memories.

    Cons

    Everything negative that has been said so far about this company stems from the top down. The owners are two brothers, who go by the aliases of Mike and Tony (these are not their real names; their names are Agron and Veton Binakaj and they are Albanian by birth). They treat their workforce like their personal property. They will mistreat/demean/humiliate their employees, either directly, through "staff meetings" which are laced with profanity and threats, or indirectly, through their management. Management is also cowed by these paranoid, power-hungry brothers, and they do their bidding out of fear for their own jobs. Mainly, management parrots the same threats that "Mike" and "Tony" issue, or they spy on employees through one of hundreds of cameras spread throughout the facility. Employees can expect 9 hour shifts spent on a phone at a cubicle, with lunch in a tiny cramped break room. On the phone, employees get to speak with the scum of society. It is common to hear profanity. Meanwhile, perched over the cubicle, is a "supervisor" listening to every word you say, correcting you, belittling you, all according to "Mike" and "Tony"s" orders. There is like one supervisor per employee. It's ridiculous. It's a system that reflects the greed and paranoia of the company's imbecilic, heartless owners. This company, like the waistline of one of the brothers, expanded wildly in the last decade, growing from 5-10 employees to a staff of 150. The brothers threw lavish office parties in order to congratulate themselves on their largesse, inviting members of the Albanian diaspora, reporters, politicians, etc., so they could brag about how big they had come. They rented a massive office for themselves, with two presumptuous oak desks and opulent leather couches just to show off for any guests. Now, after New Jersey's bail reform, they've had to fire 3/4 of their staff. They are down to bare bones, shutting satellite offices. But tellingly, "Mike" and "Tony" have maintained their large, glamorous (and highly unprofitable) office space, so they can continue to show off and presume to anyone who cares to be in their presence. Sadly, no-one does anymore.

    I worked at Aaron Bail Bonds

    Pros

    They aren't any pros of working here

    Cons

    They owners Mike and Tony are horrible lying selfish individuals. They never appreciate there employees. They will curse and yell and threaten everybody jobs if there goals arent met. They abuse their power and be little you to make you feel like they own you. The supervisors are a joke and lazy. All they do is hover over an employee and try to find a reason to write you up when all they do is sit down all day and talk about nonsense or be on their phones. They barley take supervisor calls when needed. The hr department is a joke as well. If you call out once they want a Dr note and will call the doctor office to verify if you were really there. The payment department break so many fdcpa laws it's ridiculous. The owners doesn't care what you tell these customers as long as they make a payment or post a bail with us. They are selling people false hope and doesn't have no regret about it. They will fire you in a heartbeat and if you try to be noble and put your two weeks they fire you on the spot. They will fight to not approve unemployent checks if you request it. They make it seem like they care , but in reality they dont. The lowered everyones pay rate since the bail reform and fired over 30 employees. They don't have any benifits either. They only thing they give you is paid vacation and sick days after a year of employment. Do yourself a favor and don't apply to this stupid company. Mike and Tony are a joke and karma will come back around to Bite them which it already has started. They have so many pending lawsuits it's ridiculous. STAY AWAY AND IF YOUR STILL THERE FIND A NEW JOB ASAP. THIS COMPANY WILL BE OUT OF BUISNESS before 2018.

    Pros

    There are none. Pay wasn't even worth it..

    Cons

    STAY AWAY. The worst company you could ever work for. I would rather be broke than to work for this company. They have the most disrespectful supervisors. ALL of them are very unprofessional and nasty. They are always threatening to fire you for any reason, whether it's being one minute late to work even with a valid reason, whether it's because you didn't meet their ridiculously high quota for the week, or if it's because you spoke to another employee for a second. In payments, I've heard the supervisor curse at his employees multiple times. Everything at this company is a joke lol. The company is a joke. And they are going out of business hahahaha. In fact, they are at a point now where they already closed down two of their offices. If you start with them, you'll regret it and you probably won't even last a couple moments since they're most likely closing and keep lying to their employees that they are not. The owners are crazy, and if I may say STUPID.

    Pros

    You gain customer experience. Prepare you for a future in a company and dealing with difficult customers.

    Cons

    No room for growth, constent supervision, controlling The company is good to gain customer service experience especially with difficult customers and will prepare you if you're looking to get in the business field. Sadly the company has no employee culture all they care if for the employees to bring bails in even if they have to bring the bail in with $1 and try to make people put more down after. All the supervisors do is day dream, do nothing and constant listening in employees conversations. They interrupt you while you're speaking to a client and correct you which is rude and unprofessional. The production department does all the work but keep on abusing the department into bring more bails in when there's hardly bails especially from the bail reform. A lot of employees see this job as a way to bring bread to the table thankfully I finished my BA and just used this as something to put on my resume! This company helped me finish my Bachelors degree because being there for the rest of my life would of been death.

    I worked at Aaron Bail Bonds for more than a year

    Pros

    It starts at a good pay rate

    Cons

    Satellite offices are on their own, they will constantly watch and listen to you over the cameras. You will never be told when you're doing good, but will be quickly reprimanded if you do something wrong. It's high stress and they borderline doing some things illegally (example, trading phone calls for inmate referrals)
