I worked at ABM Security Services full-time

Pros

The only Pro is that it is a job.

Cons

Medical cost the officer $650 a month, the average officer makes $10.00 an hour.
They will attempt to not pay over time. When confronted about the issue they have been known to change time records as proof that a officer did not work over time.
Management will cut a full time employees hours down to 8 hours a week if one declines over time.
Uniforms that are advertised as "at no cost to the officer" cost $85.00. This is for one pair of pant and two shirt. (very very cheap quality)
Management becoming romantically involved with officers has lead average officers becoming supervisors.
Editing of officers incident daily reports to make people look bad is common practice.
Management and most supervisors treat officer as third class people and use the threat of being fired as leverage to get what they want.
I checked that I do not approve of the CEO. I have never met him and know him only by name. However I can not support a person who thinks this type of working conditions are ok.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start over. Improve the standards of the leadership. Stop the shifty back stabbing practices. Start at the top and work your way down.

    Pros

    There are no pros for the Dallas Area Office

    Cons

    Referring to the Dallas Office,little to no support from management. Worked for this company for 7 years & they just fired me for no reason at all and lied to client that can terminate the contract with a 30-day notice. They also try to deny unemployment. These people operating the Dallas branch are pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in people that care about and respect the people that work for this company, people that don't jerk employees around.

    Pros

    Competitive wages, large company, increasing number of work sites

    Cons

    Work as a W-2 employee, but you are paid as a 1099'er.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Straighten out the contract vs W-2 thing in this office.
