It is an ok company to work for.
Pros: good pay, friendly staff, diversity in the workplace
Cons: supervisors should be more involved with the sites and the security officers.
Allied Barton is not a bad company to work for, but there are some things they could change. The pay is decent, but they really need to screen their applicants more before they send them to the sites. They will hire anyone with a heart beat. Some of the people they hire do not even care about the site or the job. They should have someone drive around and check all the sites to see if people are working and have their guard card on them. This has not happened once since I started with the company. I would be more than happy to be the one who drives around and checks on the different site. I have noticed that when new employees are sent to the site, it is not the supervisor that is training, it is those officers who are on the site, who train. Now, this was just what I noticed for my site, it may be different for other sites. However, usually if that is how it is run here at this site, then, it is run the same way at other sites. I feel that the supervisor should be training everyone, that is why they are called a supervisor, to supervise everything. No other complaints yet.
