Security Officer (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA 30309 – October 20, 2017
My job site was high stress and did not pay its supervisors enough. Also there were some faulty security cameras. My coworkers generally treated me fairly. Good behavior was encouraged by our site directors. We had great site directors.
Left due to poor account management and poor workplace conditions Promised raise, false promise, no raise Gave two week notice , account manager stated he wanted this employee to only stay for one week Very unorganized account manager Unethical behaviors observed by account manager
Class D security officer (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – October 20, 2017
The company is ok to work for but management is so great with communication. I must say experienced a few great times working for the company before it became Allied Universal it was Universal Protection
I would not recommend this company to anyone. It has no advancement options what so ever, you are not given any paid time off, ever, sometimes regardless of the emergency, you are forced to put your job over your family or you are threatened with being fired, and the pay does not change. I would elaborate a lot more, but this place is THAT bad that I would basically write a long essay.
For anyone who appreciates and likes to work outdoors.
secretary at the main (Current Employee) – Topeka, KS – October 19, 2017
This position can be a fast paced to slower paced opportunity from first time employment to retirees. Work skills learned can be applied at many other positions and bonuses are added to the benefits offered. A typical day at work can begin slow and turn into a fast paced environment, or visa versa. The weather is an additional bonus as those of us who like the ever changing seasons and conditions. The job site is at a welcoming and inviting location with amenities such as modern 'vending' options and a great group of folks to work with and around. The hardest part of the job is during height, when the shift starts fast paced and stays fast paced throughout. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a steady pace is accomplished all day.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI 53202 – October 19, 2017
Overall, the management for the contract I work for with Allied is pretty decent. The main issues though are with the staffing and work flow. There is just not enough activity going on with the position I have. With always being short staffed, I work anywhere from 44 to 60 hours a week. At least they give you small benefits like paid vacation after you'v been there for at least a year and Xmas bonuses. Need some better and cheaper healthcare options though.
Decent Management, OK benefits
Staffing issues, Long hours and very little work activity.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Greenlawn, NY – October 19, 2017
The job pays the bills, but the company itself does not take care of you. Say good bye to your life outside of work. If you tell anyone you have free time, all of it will be taken away and you'll end up working almost every day. The job is good for when you're in or out of college and need to pay your bills, but find something else as soon as you can.
Security Guard (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – October 19, 2017
I have never worked for a terrible client, how ever, before Allied Universal existed, it merged into Allied Universal the beginning of the year, our whole Denver office changed, and when the employees changed it messed up things for people in the field. No one seems to ever know any thing. But the actual work you'll do is not difficult, just need to be alert and able to make sure you're focused on your job site.
