Positive and production place of employment
Janitorial (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOAugust 1, 2014
A typical day would go by relatively fast, only 4 1/2 hours worked daily seeing people you worked with, with the exception of visitors from other companies, i already knew most of the stuff i was doing, mopping, sweeping, vacuuming, collecting trash and dusting. The manager was an k guy, but at times he would be bothersome by sticking around and following – more... the employees around because he was bored, the hardest part would have been trying to keep up with all the projects the Brown Shoe was doing and doing our job without getting in their way and without messing up what they are doing, most enjoyable part was being able to say we accomplished everything and made t through another day at work. – less

It's really gratifing to work in a family/team oriented position/company
Field Operations Manager (Current Employee), Nashville, TNJuly 28, 2014
Pros: good to have internal relations with facility directors, presidents
Cons: the consequences of loosing a year to year bid (loosing good employees)
monitor each account daily, giving resolution to issues if any, making suggestions for improvement. I learn people and view unrealized needs for clients. my co-workers are amazing. Terminating employees for lack of work. Giving a deserving person a second chance in his/her career in the company. The most of being a part of building business for the – more... company and serving new clients/ accounts. – less

Not a good company
Janitor (Former Employee), Dayton,ohJuly 19, 2014
Cons: bad management
I worked 6pm-10pm did plenty of overtime but never received my money for it. I only worked for the company for a month every paycheck got shorter each pay. They wasn't giving me all my hours I worked and the overtime. Also the supervisor sits around with the other co-workers talking about other co-workers.

General Cleaner (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJune 9, 2014
Pros: bebefit program
Cons: pay rate
There really isn't a typical day at ABM. Chemicals and how they are used to complete certain cleaning task. Management know as supervisors could be a little bit uncaring to what is needed. Co workers they were sometimes fun to be around. Getting the materials that were needed although some materials would work as well. The breaks

Good place to work with, but no benefits
Janitress (Former Employee), Greer, SCJune 5, 2014
Work alone, seldom in tandem and learned to reason out what are problems encountered at work. Nice to work with friendly people specially during break times.

HOUSEKEEPING DIRECTOR AND GM ARE NOT PRODUCTIVE AT ALL
housekeeper (Current Employee), Atlanta gaApril 13, 2014
Pros: lenbrook residents
Cons: poor unprofessional management
Lenbrook itself is a GREAT PLACE to work. Friendly people residents are great!!!!!
Now housekeeping department director and GM are the worst . They don't care about their workers or the residents. They talk down to their staff and take it VERY PERSONAL IF YOU SPEAK UP. They like people who like gossip and keep it going. And if you call corporate for – more... help just forget you got a job they will fired you. The compliance line is nothing but a joke. I'm not saying is ABM itself is the management they have not professional at all. – less

Poor management, dishonesty, extemely unsafe, unrealistic expectations.
building maintenance (Former Employee), 3100 Northwest Park Drive, Knoxville, TNApril 10, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: your well being is not in their best interest, ridiculous expectations, dishonesty.
I worked for this company for 11.25 hrs and was fired for not meeting their unrealistic expectations, I was decieved durin the inteview process, and was made to work in an area with a leaking natural gas line that they were aware of and even had a gas leak detection device right next to the leak which when turned on, immediately went into alarm, when – more... I expressed concern about the overwhelming smell, they did not care, all they wanted was progress at any cost. They were even on undercover boss. They preach safety,safety,safety but I was having a hard time breathing and became light headed and had to leave the room frequently for fresh air. I received no safety glasses or ear plugs required for the production floor. One day is not enought time for a new employee to adjust. I worked half a day before the supervisor realized I was his employee. I went to the restroom to relieve myself, nosooner than I sat down, the super was in the restroom looking for me and would not let me finish. This was not an equal employment opportunity. If you read this and are considering working for these people, make sure your life insurance is current! – less

Pros: can be a great lace to launch and finish your career

ABM has unrealistic expectations
Facility Admin Services (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCApril 2, 2014
Pros: worked 4 days and off 3
Cons: worked every weekend and dealt with unrealistic expectations
Worked for ABM to support Vanguard and worked 11 hours a day and they took 1 hour out automatically whether I got to take lunch or not. They're policies and their expectations were in direct conflict with each other. They expected me to work for free and not claim overtime if I had to work it. There were some employees that would clock out and then – more... go finish their work because they were scared to tell management that their expectations were unrealistic. Worse management I've ever encountered. They can not keep people and I don't think they care that they have revolving door employees. Worse job I ever had in my life and I'm 55 years old. Move on there is a better job out there this one is not it!!!!! – less
