Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

A lot of overtime available. They have a lot of training available but the trick is staying there long enough to take advantage of it.

Cons

Its like 10 times worse then being on guard in the service. Where I worked you had to stand all of the time and stare at lockers with no one around and you were not allowed to have a cell phone or any kind of entertainment of any kind for like 9 to 18 hours. It was always an air of your job being on the line for the slightest infraction,there are no second chances. The company sucks don't waste your time here

Advice to Management

The only thing that can help this company is if it is sold and the company that buys them cares about there employees other then that they don"t care about what I or anyone else thinks.

    Pros

    They can give out a full time work schedule so if you really need the money it is a steady source of income.

    Cons

    This site is one of the lowest paid sites in the region to spite being one of the sites that requires the most amount of work.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation for the security personal, and raise the hourly rate. If you do this performance should improve.
