    I worked at Aladdin Bail Bonds full-time

    Pros

    Long hours, so your paychecks are pretty decent depending on what location you're at.

    Cons

    Favoritism is rampant. Myself and other employees were constantly clocked out for lunches upon time card reviews even if we didnt take one (some offices get so busy you literally arent given time to take one), which is absolutely against the law (and we were threatened with termination if you spoke up against it). Public blaming/shaming by management was common. Doctors notes for serious (FMLA related) issues were ignored,...

    Advice to Management

    Revamp everything and make management accountable for their actions. Your employees arent robots...If you take care of them, they'll take care of you.

    Pros

    Benefits. More Money collected means more on paycheck. Health Benefits

    Cons

    Sales are #1 and that's & how employee earns: constant stress. Mix of Night to day shifts: body can't get used to schedule. Long hours sitting on- Low grade chairs that are not fit for 10-12hr shifts. No Screen Protectors. POsting agent is least paid at 14hr and most worked. Set hourly- like or LEAVE. Employee pays for his/her own hourly rate- you have to reach a weekly draw to pay for the percentage...

    Advice to Management

    Many offices earn profits of 1million or more per/yr and not a single dollar goes back to employees. You get a 50 dollar bonus gift card at end of the year!! not a lie!! Managers and above workers get a party in Las Vegas for recognition while employees don't receive anything. Most diminishing thing having to live with no employee appreciation. Management will never have your back- it was proven late 2015 in San Jose...

    No Pros at any location

    Cons

    You'll be in fear of losing your job on a daily basis. Turn over rate is extremely high. I worked in Seattle for less than a year and witnessed more then 10 terminations. Management does nothing to keep your moral up. No work life balance. Very little pay, no room for advancement.

    I worked at Aladdin Bail Bonds full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Okay benefits, decent pay, cool resume builder, and a good character / experience builder. I'd you're in a C class office it hardly ever gets too crazy to handle, and provides a more intimate work environment which is awesome.

    Cons

    Where to begin. I get retail, customers first . But holy hell does this company neglect the needs of their retail staff . Managers are horrible about building morale , not good at training or taking time to build their employees , and not supportive. I've witnessed people being denied BERREAVEMENT LEAVE. which is illegal by the way. I've witnessed my coworkers being fearful every single day that they're going to be fired...and...

    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 for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The training the company provides is excellent. They will give you everything you need to succeed and will give you the opportunity to make your own judgement calls.

    Cons

    Long hours for low pay Management could care less you are there. The company has a saying... “they will be here tomorrow with or without you” and it totally feels that way. Inconsistent pay Inconsistent standards for who you are bailing out and co-signers. Other offices will snake your deal. HIGH turnover rate which doubles or triples your work load or hours.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more. Be more consistent in your policies when it comes to other offices and how you deal with which offices get which bonds. I saw many rules written that no one would follow and when asked, it would just get brushed under the rug. Spend more time looking at inner office issues. When more than 15 people quit within a one year time period... the issue most likely lies with management. This company may be the leader...

    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.......

    I worked at Aladdin Bail Bonds full-time for more than 6 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,...
