    Pros

    i made a few solid friendships while I was there.... Honestly can't say anything about ABM impressed me at any time I was there (I was there more than a year)

    Cons

    It takes weeks to get an honest answer. They offer benefits, but you can't afford them making $10/hr. Pay was decent until ABM took over the contract at BMW and slashed the hourly wage by over $3/hr! Medical coverage for employee only was over $600/month! And that's just health insurance. They don't offer life or disability. There is no training budget or training program. And unless you're young, pretty, and threaten to leave, they won't even talk to you. ABM does not do one thing to act like they care about you as a person, or that you are valued as an employee. Local management in place now can't get anything done for all the arguing and back-biting like children. Local management WAS OK, but everyone there who was actually capable either retired or left. Oh yeah, and they don't offer any sort of retirement either. Bottom line, if you need a check they'll hire you if you pass a background check and will pay $65 for your sled card and buy your own safety shoes (required). Every other employer on site buys their employee shoes or pays something on them. ABM cut that out too when they took over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to lose that contract. ABM is in over their head. They held am"TLC- think like a customer" propaganda campaign and had folks from BMW come in there. It was embarrassing and I was ashamed to see the inept dog and pony show they tried to put on. They need to pay a living wage and offer affordable benefits. They can't expect people to work six days per week and only get one week of paid vacation per year and no holidays.

    Pros

    only the clients and patrons coming in cared about you

    Cons

    poor management, everyone out there heard of her sexcapades. very unprofessional, we never got to speak to management above her, hr never cared We had a team lead always sleeping and he is still there even though he damaged two vehicles belonging to company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    talk with your employees, you cant take the word of a group of 4 who are all hangout buddies against another whethe kidsn you have someone in charge is partyingtheir with their employees and sleeping with them. also you have employees threatening others and no care by you all, nor do they ever thank you for all the overtime and extras that are done. also the managers are hiring their kids and friends. they are never there at work yet they claim to be and tell if their boss calls they are out on plant site and they clock in and leave to goshopping for a personal cell

    I worked at ABM Security Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big company that always had support available.
    Always paid my staff and myself correctly and on time.
    HR issues were handled professionally.
    Plenty of mentors within my chain of command that helped me learn and grow as a manager.

    Cons

    Hard work and dependability can easily be overlooked.
    Advancement and promotions seemed to open and close on a weekly basis. Work is contingent on contracts won or loss, so a steady career is not something I felt ABM offered; understandably so though.
    Very big company that spends more time on boarding and then terminating bad employees, rather than acknowledging the good workers once in awhile.
