Part/Full-Time (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – November 16, 2017
I have worked for allied barton for 4 years till universal protective services took over. There is no room for improvement, advancement, pay, other areas and job. Loss alot of government jobs. Did have a lot of them before. Went down hill from here. Pay went from bi-weekly to weekly.
Depends on location
Any newbies will like it, Pay not high, Not fun to work-depends of location

Lied about my pay and pay rase.

Security Officer (Current Employee) – various sites in Las Vegastypical day – November 28, 2017
Typical day could be really boring, i usually work nights. Management, what can i say theres good and bad i dealt with them both. Definitely the hardest part of the job was dealing with angry, and drunk guests couldnt tell you how many times i was threatened by 1 or more people. Best time of the day...taking off the work shoes.
The site manager that AlliedBarton contracted was very hard to work with. It seemed he was constantly searching for what we would do wrong without any reason. He would tell all our supervisors to write on us what we did wrong even there was nothing needed to be written about.

Its a good company to work for but you have to stick around! Most people who have had a bad experience worked for a short time and expected massive promotions and changes. Security is a high turn over industry, no one in their right mind is offering bennies to new hires. Put in the time, the opportunities are there
Security Receptionist (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – November 27, 2017
Your training consists of reading for 8 hours. The trainer at that time, would show you how to do the job 1 time and expects you not to make a mistake there after. Management never addressed the issues in regards to harassment, and other issues.
I was first hired to work a strip mall keeping school children from in front of stores with bicycles and skate boards. The parents dropped them off and picked them up in the parking lot of this mall. I then transferred to a gated community and found that the conditions were not to my liking
pay was good
had to put up with middle school children and the super at the gated community would not help out
Was on-site manager for a client and was commended for my services by many employees of the client.
On-site Supervisor (Former Employee) – Erlanger, KY – November 25, 2017
Management support was very accommodating when office supplies or additional equipment was required. Supervisors and managers were given run of the contracts as long as they did not step outside the guidelines setup by Allied-Barton.
Good breaks, and excellent staffing when needed, even when extra personnel were required.
Good to work for if U get treated Right by a respected Supervisor
