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

Pros

Work at most job sites is usually easy going, slow paced.
Lots of overtime available at every job site I worked at.
After a year of full time work you get forty hours paid time off.
You receive free uniforms and will continue to get new uniforms by trading your old ones in.
You receive a raise if you complete additional training.

Cons

Lots of overtime available and you're often forced to stay for another shift.
Continuous training of new employees, as there is a very high turnover rate.
The healthcare that is offered is poor and co-pays are high. Even my account manager said go with something else if possible.

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

    Pros

    Good entry level career with chance for advancement (due to high turnover).
    The CORPORATE philosophies and policies are AWESOME and would be a good business model for ANY business!

    Cons

    Mid-management (account supervisors and managers) at a number of sites in the Denver area have no care nor concern for the "Dare To Be Great" philosophies and will flout AB policy at will. Favoritism, pettiness, seeing SO's as nothing but a warm body to fill a schedule, having more concern for saving pennies than SAFETY or employee morale, these demigods have forgotten the AB policy that AB officers are INTERNAL CUSTOMERS and should be treated with respect! I watched helplessly as one good officer after another 'jumped ship' all due to a insecure and unconcerned account supervisor. When I respectfully brought concerns to his attention, he made our lives an even greater hell! When, following AlliedBarton policy, I brought the officers' concerns to the District level, I was terminated (over an 'infraction' that doesn't even appear in the AB Disciplinary Matrix (again, the flouting of AB policies and procedures). When you read the other negative reviews on AlliedBarton, there is a common denominator - Account Supervisors that don't adhere to AlliedBarton policies and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Train account supervisors to respect their 'underlings' and promote or at least ABIDE BY AB policies and procedures.
    District managers need to talk with the officers on the ground to get the REAL story of what's going on at each site.
