      Bad management and leeds

      Pros

      You get to earn a paycheck

      Cons

      99 % of coworkers have behavioral and emotional problems from long term drug and alcohol abuse. Most employees have been arrested, are on patrol and have criminal records and can't even get jobs flipping burgers so custodial is the end of the line. Been working as a janitor a long time and have yet to have a decent, honest, well-behaved and well-adjusted adult co-worker with good boundaries yet. There are also LOTS of predators and sexism and masogyny and management will not only blame you for being sexually assaulted and molested while on shift but will also gaslight you. Lots of hostility and paranoia toward women with every team I have worked with.

      It’s an okay job.

      Pros

      -I work for ABM at an Arena. (Night shift) We work when everyone in the building is gone, besides security. So no one gets to bother you, and you don’t have to deal with customers. -Management is great, our supplies, office is organized. -Our leads know what they’re doing. -We either work separate or in groups. -Decent part time job, if you’re looking for a little money on the side.

      Cons

      -It’s a ton of work to do. -We’re understaffed sometimes, so we constantly have to make sure we get the job done on time. Other wise a few people might get called in the next day to finish. -This job isn’t for everyone, I’ve had coworkers who started working one day and quit the same day or next day. -Not paid enough for the work we do. -my check is always missing money, so I don’t do overtime anymore. Since they want to be sneaky about it. And it’s happened to other coworkers as well, so keep track of your hours!

      Pros

      They are professional in deep Cleaning, and detailed, a worker must be able to multitask in every area , no matter what you’re told to do , you have to do it , ABM have very strict policy and Rules . ..

      Cons

      ABM don’t stand by there workers neither do they support them , there workers .. work very hard and most of the time , when the work load is given become too much , if a worker complains about the job , they written up or fired . They don’t give you a proper answer.. to why you’ve been fired . Many have lost there job , through this Company .. no explanations were given to the employees, it’s so sad the way employees were treated time and time again supervisors threaten the employees , by saying you could lose your job , but I’ll still have mines . Employees were treated horrible ..

      I would look elsewhere

      Pros

      1. There are some cool people 2. Can get a decent exposure to accounting/finance 3. Very nice office space 4. Have been accommodating for allowing WFH during COVID

      Cons

      1. It's a place where people work, so if all you care about is a paycheck you may thrive here 2. It is a mega-corp, so prepare yourself for the endless bureaucracy. Getting system access can take like 2 weeks 3. Upper management is inept and not with the times. The service line workers get paid poverty wages for providing an essential service (janiorital, parking, maintenance etc), but management only care about their bonuses 4. Accounting department is a zoo. Processes/technology/people, the flow can be very broken 5. Overburdened staff. Mandatory hours required
