    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for in general. Pay scare is slightly above average with possible overtime if needed. 401, Insurance and vacation time available. People are friendly and professional. There is constant training to keep up with current laws and safety situations.

    Cons

    Promotions are sometimes based on favoritism instead of performance or seniority.
    Some new supervisors get a little power happy and forget where they came from.

    Advice to Management

    When outside management is hired they need to be educated more on their new environment rather then coming in and trying to reinvent the wheel.
    Give credit where credit is due. "Everyone" puts their pants on one leg at a time.

    I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was great working there while it lasted until they choose to promote whomever from wherever you put your years in train all the new people and you constantly get overlooked. Some people in upper management or supervisory roles can't even write a complete sentence. Pay was great & plenty of overtime if you wanted it.

    Cons

    Sometimes being overworked due to always working they would automatically put you on the schedule without your knowledge. Insurance was extremely expensive & didn't cover anything!!!

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone the same equal opportunity to move up. Step out of your offices sometime & check on your employees since they are the ones that run the company. Be fair.......
