A decent job, but...
Unarmed Security (Former Employee), Pontiac, ILAugust 21, 2015
Honestly my time with Allied Barton was riddled with problems. Inconsistent pay, disgruntled workforce, unpayed overtime and dismissed workman's comp claims. The job itself was fine. The company was not trust worthy.

I enjoyed interacting with all of the staff
Security Guard (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAAugust 20, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them. The office started to get crowded as the company grew and it was more difficult to get to know people

Decent work
Security Guard (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 19, 2015
Pros: They had free coffee in the lunch room.
Cons: I was making $7.30 an hour, so I decide to apply at the job starting at 9.25 an hour.
I arrived at the site. Called in to the supervisor to report in for duty. Patrolled around the site once an hour. I sat at the desk and turned on the monitor and watched the screen as the cameras scan the site. I call the police when I see an illegal act occur.

Lack of Communication and False Promises
Accounting Shared Services Specialist (Current Employee), Conshohocken, PAAugust 19, 2015
AlliedBarton stresses in the interviews that they encourage promoting from within, but you soon see that the promoting doesn't always have to do with how hard the person works or how well they are at their position, but who is the favorite for reasons other than their knowledge and work ethics. Also, there is always something fishy going on behind the scenes with upper management and you always have to feel like you need to watch your back no matter how good of a job you do because they are never 100% open with any news or future changes.

ITS OKAY
SECURITY GUARD (Former Employee), MANHATTANAugust 19, 2015
IT WAS OKAY TO WORK FOR THEM BUT A LITTLE UNPROFESSIONAL. THEY GAVE U THE HOURS THEY JUST DONT LIKE TO PAY U ON TIME. I WORKED THE MIDNIGHT SHIFT.
I LEARNED THAT U HAVE TO COVER UR OWN BACK AT ALL TIMES
MANAGEMENT HAS A LACK OF COMMUNITCATION WITH THERE WORKERS
MY CO-WORKERS MADE LIFE ON THE JOB VERY EASY FOR ME, I GOT ALONG WITH ALL OF THEM
THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOBS WAS THAT MY SUPWRVISOR WAULD TAKE THE WORK OF THE CLIENT OF HIS GUARDS
THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART WAS THAT IT WAS IMPROVEMENT N THAT I COULD MOVE UP TWITH IN THE COMPANY

Job is okay, but time to move on!
Sercurity Personnel (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAAugust 15, 2015
I do various duties at my job site on a daily basis. I can greet visitors and staff, take phone calls, patrol the building, accept mail coming in, and other stuff throughout the day. In the beginning the atmosphere was good, but 8 years later not so much. Working with my coworkers is what keeps me going day to day. Im ready for challenge, so I am ready to leave.
