I worked at ABM Industries full-time

Pros

The only Pro is that it is a job.

Cons

Medical cost the officer $650 a month, the average officer makes $10.00 an hour.
They will attempt to not pay over time. When confronted about the issue they have been known to change time records as proof that a officer did not work over time.
Management will cut a full time employees hours down to 8 hours a week if one declines over time.
Uniforms that are advertised as "at no cost to the officer" cost $85.00. This is for one pair of pant and two shirt. (very very cheap quality)
Management becoming romantically involved with officers has lead average officers becoming supervisors.
Editing of officers incident daily reports to make people look bad is common practice.
Management and most supervisors treat officer as third class people and use the threat of being fired as leverage to get what they want.
I checked that I do not approve of the CEO. I have never met him and know him only by name. However I can not support a person who thinks this type of working conditions are ok.

Advice to Management

Start over. Improve the standards of the leadership. Stop the shifty back stabbing practices. Start at the top and work your way down.

    I have been working at ABM Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Have found no pros yet and don't think I will.

    Cons

    Promised one thing and now getting the shaft. Said work would be from 2pm to 10:30pm with most Saturdays off now it is 4 to 12:30 and working every Saturday. Going to get some one killed by working them to hard. All work no life to them.

    Advice to Management
