Security Officer (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – April 11, 2014
Pros: interaction with customers
Cons: officers callign out frequent
working for Allied Barton, not only was it a wonderful company. But on a day to day working schedule we provided excellent customer service. we also communicated very well with passing on important information for the next officers on duty.

Security Officer (Former Employee), Greensboro, NC – April 10, 2014
Pros: flexibility and consistent work
Cons: communication between management not ideal
