    Pros

    Easy job. Well I thought it would be.

    Cons

    Supervisors are aweful. Pay is terrible. I was with the company for 2 1/2 years. And always tried to do the right thing. Went to HR with a problem and they swept it under the rug. Corruption at it's finest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at AlliedBarton full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Learning how to deal with all types of people.
    Developing experience in deescalating problems.

    Cons

    The contractor/client relationship places the company in compromising scenarios, especially in regards to the lower level employees.
    The company overall does not offer admirable health insurance plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about the employees because they are a reflection of management. If employees feel more appreciated then they will be more inclined to maximize their potential as workers and develop better attitudes towards their job.

    I have been working at AlliedBarton full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Paid on time, nothing else, it is a very poor situation and I can not even think of another Pro for this company

    Cons

    There is the feeling that they have their finger over a button waiting to sell you out to save themselves, it took 3 months to get my pay to the correct amount that they had promised I would continue with after the contract got carried over to them, they took out a holding fee on my uniforms and did not even give me the full set

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the lower members of your company, we work hard, look after us
