    I worked at AlliedBarton (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved by positions when I worked for AlliedBarton. Always felt like I was appreciated and thought well of as an employee until the new Valero Security superintendent started. Went from getting 2013 Leadership Excellence award to being made and treated like I was worthless.

    Cons

    Didn't support employee was afraid of losing client if they did.

    Advice to Management

    Loved my position as Account Mamager

    I have been working at AlliedBarton part-time

    Pros

    Overall the position wasn't bad, I needed a position quickly and was treated well.

    Cons

    My 90 day review happened over 30+ days late, during those 30 days I was late twice and because of that (straight from my supervisor's mouth) I was not given a raise. Yet it was not uncommon for myself and another officer (who was part of the management team though) to pick up more than two extra shifts each week to help with coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of always talking about how great the training and opportunities are, make it a reality.

    I have been working at AlliedBarton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    full time job, plus help with getting your security license and free annual 8 hour course

    Cons

    They don't care about their workers, fire you immediately if you endanger them from losing the contract. Pay is terrible, no movement, no benefits, and no overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Have benefits, pay overtime, and pay more money!!!

    Pros

    Professional environment with good pay and manageable hours.comes with benefits that can turn into a career

    Cons

    Too many rules that contradict itself within its organization no excuses and you better not mess up even though the training is a lot to take in within week. Some of the people training you will forget to explain something then you will be blamed for their mistake. There is no leniency. Depending on the sight the have no remorse for mess ups

    Advice to Management

    Keep the professionalism up but be more understanding towards your employees
