    Hoildays paid
    Ive been with Alliedbarton. For 4 years and working at city sites which pays 13 to 16 $
    I currently work at a very high profile site which Alliedbarton just renewed the contract this site is part of 32BJ and also currently has empire blue cross has its medical and offers vocation and sick days

    Downside is that management wants you to stay there and never promotes unless one of there favorites
    They don't give OT because its going to cost the company alot and away from the account manager bonus haha my boss is a funny guy though
    Overall its good but only if they ppromoted within and on the excellent service we provide but trust me wayyy better than any in security

    Cons

    Hire favorable within
    No OT when want it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Considering the companies available in the industry, AlliedBarton is pretty good. It used to be very good, but the realities of the market has forced all service industries to become more competitive, sometimes to the detriment of the employees. Training offered is best in class, and there are many very talented people that truly care. Unfortunately, just like with any large company, there are a duds in management as well, and they tend to get the attention on this site.

    Cons

    Many of the cons that people associate with this company are directly related to the customer at which an employee is assigned, and the realities of any entry level service job. This is true of any contracted service provider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who run the business every day. Your best line level leaders will tell you how to be successful, and if you don't listen, they'll find a company that will.

    Pros

    They have a lot of team orientated things. They train you in many different things. The sights are amazing and you can do more than a lot of other companies. The benefits are amazing! And you can grow with the company. There is always a way to move up.

    Cons

    The pay is not as much as you do for it. There are certain people they hire that should have never been hired to begin with.

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

    Pros

    The management is really friendly and high speed. Military friendly. Client for where I worked was quite easy going to. As long as you do your job, show up on time, then you are good to go.

    Cons

    Only downside is that depending upon your location, it can be quite boring/ monotonous. Pay is what it is for a temporary job, but quite better than most. A good job until you find a real job, or want climb the management ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really. The management is doing their job very well, and the company is very well put together with lots of resources, and online training classes.

    Pros

    bosses communicate they try to work with you, hold thier managers accountable. Did not make big deal of a mistake I made

    Cons

    promotions a little to clicky

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay needs to account for new minimum wage. Soon alot of gaurds will make less than minimum. Soon flipping burgers at macdonalds will pay more. Just think all that free cholesterol.
