    I worked at ABM Janitorial Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are desperate for workers so you will get a lot of hours. There will be plenty of work to do in a day.

    Cons

    Building supervisors give different information than their bosses and you can be terminated for wrong information because they will never admit they gave you the wrong information.

    Advice to Management

    Try bidding a job properly. If you have never done a particular job, do not try to guess how long it may take to complete. This ends up backfiring not only on the employee but also the client. And have your salaried managers clock in and out.... You would be amazed at how much time they actually miss

    It all depends on the location they put you in. It could be great or it can be hell.

    Relative Job Security and decent benefits

    Overtime hours, different opportunities at different places.

    Most people only spoke Spanish, some people in management were very untrained. One supervisor had me speaking for him because he had little to no English skills

    Give management positions to those who at least know English.
