Company did not uphold agreements for client site placement.

Security Officer (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

ProsComradarie among the other officers, may former military and law enforcement backgrounds come to work for Allied Barton.

ConsUpon my start of employment and training, my recruiter stated I would be placed on a high level force protection site, because of my military experience and background. I underwent extensive firearms and tactics training, both with Allied Barton and the client. After this training was completed, my Site/Account Manager placed my at a unarmed, low security site where the pay was considerably less than what I was promised.

Because of the high turnover rate, I was placed on a flex position. This means that I would get called to fill in shifts on multiple sites, many times at the last minute. This was due to poor planning on the Site Manager's part, low moralef, and requent resignation among officers.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be advisable not to make empty promises about which sites new hires may or may not be placed at. Make more efforts to reduce the turnover rate, and overall of the officers that you employ.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
