    I have been working at AlliedBarton

    Pros

    Multitude of job sites, you can work at multiple sites. If you, like me, get a great account manager that's hard working and is actually around, kudos! Plenty of oppertunities to advance. Really enjoy my job, in all honesty.

    Cons

    Training isn't as comprehensive as I would have liked. The MSO training is nice, but buttons and pins aren't great rewards for extra training. Also, my recuiter told me I would be paid a lot more for a job that would go full time. Still part time, and less pay than I anticipated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not at this time.
