Security Guard (Former Employee), San Diego, CALIFORNIA – October 10, 2014
Pros: the co-workers were very friendly
Cons: breaks were very short
When I arrived at work I know that I am there to work. I learned to keep yourself occupied with things to do on your free time like school work. Management was always understanding and helpful with trying to succeed and grow as a person. My co-workers were always helpful when I was stuck with a certain problem or willing to switch days. The hardest – more... part of the job was changing my sleep pattern because I worked the grave yard shift. – less

Security officer DPST certified (Former Employee), Portland, OR – October 8, 2014
Pros: communication, good managment
Cons: limited staff
I learned much about security and security based technologies. I thought it was interesting on how the use off CCTV worked. I was a rover which meant I drove around the premises of Conway. I dealt with a lot of transits and other work related issues inside the building. AlliedBarton was a very rewarding job to me
Feel like an employee number, don't feel like an asset.
Security Guard Officer (Current Employee), El Paso, TX – October 8, 2014
Pros: learning experience
Cons: no room for advancement
It is a good job to start out with but provides no hope for a future. I did learn a lot about person to person relations and problem solving/appropriate situation response. Management at the main office is almost ghost-like and demonstrate no care for employee concern. Pay does not reflect the amount of work done. Little to no room for advancement. – more... Pay raised 32 cents in 5 years. Co-workers and site supervisors are, however, very helpful. – less

If the other officers do not come in, I will have to take their position until my supervisor will find other officers to fill in the position. Throughout – more... the day i will give the officers restroom breaks, lunch breaks or anything else they made need. I also will conduct patrols around the parking lots.
