Account Manager (Current Employee), Minneapolis, Mn Las Vegas NV/Tempe Az – November 21, 2013
Cons: long hours
I specialize in Medical and have enjoyed working in the Clinic environerment. I have worked in this field for over 20 years and I have spent half of that time with ABM. I started in 2002 with seven locations and aquired a total of 30 buildings during the time that I worked there. ABM has used my specialty in this field to help implement training, protocols, – more... recycling programs, and my specialty in ambulatory surgery units. I would highly recommend working for ABM. – less
Day Porter, Janitor (Former Employee), Duluth, GA – November 18, 2013
Working for ABM janitorial services was an experience that will be with held for future related jobs. I had a chance to travel to different work sites and meet new people. A typical day of cleaning and interacting with the facilities staff is what allowed me to enjoy that type of work. Cleaning bathrooms,hallways,mirrors and outer grounds were my daily – more... tasks. – less
Janitorial Cleaner for Amazon Phx (Current Employee), tempe – October 17, 2013
Pros: good company to work for
Cons: pay is to low
The hardest part of my day is passing through security in the morning because i haven't been approved for an ID badge.we look at the board to see our first work assigned areas for the first 2 hours,then assigned to a department to clean for the rest of the day.Most security staff know me by name and my co-workers have been very nice and helpful. What – more... I've learned is to compromise for the work at hand,coming up with different ways to do my job, not to be afraid to ask for things, in order to make the work easier or better for all my co-workers even though if nothing is done about it I know at least I tried.Most enjoyable part of the day is when the Amazon employees come in,I try to socialize with some of the workers.l – less
Porter (Former Employee), New York, NY – October 15, 2013
Pros: money is good
Cons: no job security
I liked working for this company but the problem was there is no job security. I worked for this company for 4 years on and off and was never offered a permanent position. They always tell you there are no permanent jobs available which is a bunch of bull.The money is good though but they will not hire you permanently.

housekeeping (Former Employee), Houston, TX – September 25, 2013
Everyday we all felt like family the management was very understanding and easy to talk too. The things i learned at ABM was how everyone was like a team help one another out if you having any problems doing something. My co worker was very friendly and really welcoming you with opening arms. The hardest part of my job was always keeping track of time – more... if i had a lot to do on one of the floors i would be working on. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people and seeing smiling faces that greet me everyday that what made my day. – less
General cleaner (Current Employee), Davenport Iowa – August 28, 2013
Pros: no micromanaging or having someone watching you
Cons: pay, no raises, work is never good enough for client
I work in the quad city market. Nice management, not hard to get along with. Only work six hours a night Monday through Friday so not bad. Pay is terrible in my opinion...raises yeah right i don't know any employee that's gotten one in years...benefits essentially non existent and what they do have are expensive. Now the clients we clean for...community – more... healthcare is the primary one. Nothing is ever good enough for them, they expect perfection in three hours for a good size medical clinic including the employee break room and numerous bathrooms. If you don't clean to their standards you'll get constant complaints. I bust my rear everyday and an told I'm not doing my job...deal with it everyday. Beware of this company. – less
Janitor (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – August 22, 2013
Pros: reciving a paycheck every week.
Cons: short breaks no benefits work was not promised everday.
Very unorganized and inconsiderate to its employees. Work was not promised on a daily basis. No benefits are giving to floaters and they keep workers as floaters to ensure that they can note offered benefits. Its a very stressful work environment.
