ok place to work
Security officer (Former Employee), Orlando, FLFebruary 18, 2015
Cons: no breaks over worked
If your looking for a place to get experience allied barton can help you out. work consist of checking personal entering property. Management doesn't help you when you have a problem or need to change shifts. working with the right people can make your day go by fast. hardest part of job is working with people who dont like to work and make your shift hard for you. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with good people and having fun talking with them.

Just a paycheck
Security Officer (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAFebruary 17, 2015
Coworkers can be nice, but the company does not take care of you. They do more for the clients at the leisure of the employees.

Not the Typical Job
(Security Officer) (Current Employee), Washington DCFebruary 17, 2015
Your liable to get stuck at work to hold over for another 4-8 hours if your relief calls out. After you have already worked 8 or 10 of your own hours.

OUT DOOR PATROL OFFICER UNIT (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PaFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: freedom, bike riding, meeting people
Cons: short breaks, boring overnights, dealing with vagrants
Most days at work would be very slow due to the fact I work overnight. I deal with strangers, visitors, and patients of all types that eventually made me adapt to it. A rough day at work for most people would be something like, dealing with a supervisor they don't get along with. For me, it would be more like, seeing trauma patients being rushed into the ER. So, that was pretty tough and took a while of getting used to. I don't really enjoy the supervision in my department too much because I feel that they're too strict over the smallest of situations. Our breaks aren't long enough and most choices to eat lunch at night are closed. What I do like about it is that my position gives me more freedom away from all the drama.

Great job if you have no desire to advance within this company
SECURITY OFFICER (Former Employee), West Palm Beach, FLFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: monday - friday schedule
Cons: lots of overtime weekends, not allowed days off if needed, and company tried to cut hours to avoid overtime pay.
I would arrive at the facility at 1:30 in the afternoon Monday - Friday. Once inside the facility I would relieve the morning security officer. Then I would make my first round inside and outside the facility and fill out a log sheet. Every hour on the hour I would make a security check like the first. I would control access inside the facility and also safe guard the aircraft and it's crew. At 10:00pm I would lock up the facility and call the security operations center to let them know I was leaving.

A work in progress last I worked there but definitely in progress, this is the best Security company I've worked for so far,
Drop Shift Lieutenant (Former Employee), Baltimore, MD Johns Hopkins Homewood CampusFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: oft-times plenty of work if you're dedicated.
Cons: sometimes a lack of consideration for the workers.
As I've stated above this is the best Security company I've worked for so far. As far as what it is willing to do for the client. I appreciated the experience that I had with this company it taught an awful lot about the business world in general. I would definitely recommend it for a person who is hard-working, dedicated and willing to work. You definitely have to be willing to work for the client.

I did not like working for this company
Security officer (Former Employee), Murrels Inlet scFebruary 15, 2015
Pros: was paid every two weeks
Cons: no real breaks no where to take a break at. was not allowed in office to do paper work
I was mistreated and had no one to tell this to no contacts to keep in touch with. Was treated like a second rate citizen. I would never work for this company again, They lie to you they make you pay a depoist for your uniforms then when you leave they dont want to give you your depoist back, The officer were not allowed in the office to complete paper work. Had no where to take a break. Unless you sat in your car.

Dispatched/ Patrolled
Security Guard and Dispatcher (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVFebruary 14, 2015
When I was patrolling it was to see if everyone on the busses that ran on the strip had a pass. If I was not doing that then I was at the assigned station in the hit sun for 8 hours helping people. Then I went to dispatching where I worked on the computer and watched the CCTV system.
