It's a Job not a Career

Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsLike many large security companies, they are always seeking to fill security positions because of the ever "revolving" door.

ConsNo realistic chance for advancement opportunities. No additional continual training received after the initial required state and client training. Can not support your family based on the hourly rates. Many employees have a second and even a third job.There is a lack of meaninful communication between upper management and employees and the organization overall. ABM Security Services is just one division of ABM Industries. Other divisions include Janitorial (core division), Parking, HVAC, Electrical, Landscaping, Maintenance, Mechanical, and others. They do not specialize in security like other security companies so not all resorces are alocated solely to security.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more security training to security officers and superiors and foster a real environment of advancement opportunity. Raise the hourly rates of employees to a livable wage so employees don't have to take on two more jobs and report to work tired and you will be able to retain more employees who are loyal. Meet with your staff periodically to find out the real truth of what is going on within their assigned sites. Raise the bar in the hiring standards. Most of all, thank your employees for doing a good job (when warranted), it will go a long way with your staff.

    Bait and switch

    Utility Engineer (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    I worked at ABM Industries as a contractor for more than 3 years


    Pros: *Lots of assignments/contract jobs *At the right site, you can learn… Cons: *Contracted jobs can be short-term and subject to change (both location and duration of assignment) *False… Advice to Senior Management: Please better screen personnel who are put in supervisory positions. I've worked at several sites, under contract, only to learn that many of my supervisors… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
