    Pros

    With the amount of turnover, there is almost always opportunities for overtime. They have 4 options for health insurance which is actually pretty good.

    Cons

    The company literally does not care about individual employees. Best pray you get assigned to a site where either the client wants as little turnover as possible so keeping officer's happy is a priority or an operations manager who views officers as something more than just a required number to fill needed posts. The only chance to increase your salary is to get to a more prestigious site or become a site supervisor. If your operations manager is unprepared for his/her job or worse doesn't care then your paychecks can easily become random and your vacation time will just disappear.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to decrease turnover and the overtime that comes with it, compensate the more experienced officers accordingly.

    Not all staff are Cutthroats or hypocrites

    Make you work 24 hour shifts just about. If you complain they give you minimal hours. Or change your schedule and don't let you know so you get written up.

    Advice to Management

    I can't believe you changed my hours then didn't tell me. Then accusingI me of a no-show no call. I have pictures of my schedule.

    I worked at AlliedBarton part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is always work. Sometimes even overtime.

    Cons

    Pay is not geared to experience and promotions are hard to get. Full-time work is hard to get unless you like to go from job to job to get the hours. Management changes often and does not much care about the people. The company hires a bunch new people all of the time and their work ethic is sketchy.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people who work hard for you and reward them accordingly. Hire better people, and take care of the ones you have.
