I have been working at ABM Security Services

Pros

You will get your time off when it is requested.
Depends on your supervisor but overall it is a good experience.
Management is willing to work with your personal schedule.
Fair pay and benefits since it joined the union.

Cons

Minimal training at most sites.
Supervisors can be incompetent.
Can attract the worst of people (co-worker-wise).
Starting pay is low.
It is easy to get pigeonholed, there is nowhere to go with this type of work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use this company as something on the side, either start working two jobs and begin saving money for a good investment or go to school while working. There are always openings with ABM, keep moving sites/positions until you find a situation that will help you meet your goals. You most likely will not meet your goals within this company but you can easily utilize this company to meet your goals that are outside of the company. Does that make sense?

    Pros

    Indoor security opportunities, professional uniform appearance, opportunities to earn overtime.

    Cons

    Immature direct supervisors, slow to promote and poor communication within direct lines of supervision. do your best to document your work and attendance records and use direct chain of command to minimize conflict and possible termination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to really get to know supervisor's and site locations. Some present a different self to their supervisors compared to employees that is not professional.
