    I worked at Aladdin Bail Bonds full-time

    Pros

    You can make decent money as an agent and have lots of hours to work but beware the fine print

    Cons

    Terrible management that has no clue how to build existing staff up and instead a revolving door of people quitting or getting fired. 24/7 business means 12+ hour shifts and working nights and weekends so little to no social life. Lack of staying competitive in the current industry means this company is losing market share real fast and thats bad for agents who get paid on commission.

    Advice to Management

    Quit

    I worked at Aladdin Bail Bonds full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Literally None.... You get a paycheck.

    Cons

    -Where to begin...You will hear the phrase "Oh that's Bail" meaning after you have worked 12 hours and your about to get off of work and you get a bail... You will do another 2-3 hours if needed. 15 hour days are routine not an exception.

    -Management... ZERO, and I mean ZERO redeeming qualities about how they train their management. Zero people skills, Nepotism and Favorites are a daily Occurance.

    -Life Balance.... Again Joke, Forget requesting days off. Always comes with an excuse of "Sorry, We have Bail to Write"....Schedules are inconsistent week to week. You can work overnights one week, than days the next..... Oh and RARELY do you get 2 days off in a row.

    Benefits- Over priced, company does not pay for much....I think for a single person they wanted 150.00 per month for Medical. I passed.....

    I'm telling you this is a HORRIBLE COMPANY. They hire anyone, work you to the bone....Rinse and Repeat.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, They don't listen to suggestions...

    I worked at Aladdin Bail Bonds full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you hate your family, have no morals, and enjoy boot-licking, then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    If, like me, you have a soul, this place will do all they can to crush it, then fire you without reason, or notice. Management is racist, and will place a bullseye on your back if you stay too long without kissing enough butt to be promoted so they can pay someone else less in commission. The job takes years to master and moments to lose, if you have the guts to stand up for yourself. They encourage you to lie to clients, push you to fleece those in need, and are truly a poor example of a stable, safe working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Review who you promote. You're opening yourselves up to another lawsuit.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and get your bail license. Pay can be lucrative in a larger office.

    Cons

    In smaller offices the pay is not competitive. Advancement is not always a guarantee, in some cases it's who you know. If you don't like 12 hour shifts, don't apply.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a manager in training program and reward your bondsman who perform.

    I worked at Aladdin Bail Bonds part-time

    Pros

    The Tacoma location posts the 2nd most $$ in bonds in the nation, tons of room for advancement if you do your time
    Tacoma services the entire south Puget Sound area so frequent trips around the region in the company car, drive the speed limit and post the bond, nice and easy
    Overtime willing, sometimes required
    Cool coworkers & bosses, repo agents are always friendly as well, great environment in general

    Cons

    Sales are #1, as a result the manager has to be on everyone's sh*t
    Bit of a stressful pace at times
    Have to be able to get info from convicts who don't want to give it to you
    Daily call lists
    Impatient Customers

    Advice to Management

    Hire way more staff, Posting & Bail Agents will pay for themselves during peak hours

    Pros

    Many offices in the state which gives opportunities to move around and there is a lot of money to be made in the bigger offices such as OC, LA, SD

    Cons

    Company is slow to change and they do not care about their employees as much as they should. It's not terrible but it's not the best.
