First tme starting job, first fun and not, pay less
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
What I saw over the administration was how was going to do the most money from all the accounts, squeezing the employees to the max. They were no incentive, nor promotion, and if any, they were giving to the "good all boys team - club." They treated the ladies employees as an "S" object with no respect. It was a heart breaking feeling I had all time at work. And the ladies really squired to be fired of their job. Very sad environment.

Working with Alliedbarton was fun at time but very difficult due to the location your at. Most of the job sights i was had i had to deal with homeless asking for hand outs and they tried to intimidate you with their actions and raising there voice but foe the most part if you could keep your cool it was a fun job as long as you treat them with respect even when they don't deserve it, they will remember that later on and not give you such a hard time when you ask them to leave.
The pay is low here. For security to actually work and get paid the amount of money we do, there is no living off of it. It is so minuscule that you won't get to enjoy a paycheck before it's gone. You also have no vacation time, no paid time off, no sick days. They took away the benefits since the merge. The company seems to be going downhill. There is also very little room for career advancement. It is a stagnant job.

I would only suggest this Agency only for students that just graduated from High School or currently a College Student. If you need quick cash or just use as a stepping stone to a further your career elsewhere this place is for you.
Management does not lookout for the employees. The contracting 'client' gets all the say-so and rules and procedures can be changed at any time.
Security Officer Level ll (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 13, 2017
I was banned from working with the 'mighty' Allied Universal because I couldn't get to the new site I was transferred to. Very selfish supervisors; Do not care about employees after we slaved for them.
Master Security Officer (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – November 9, 2017
After having worked for this company for close to a year and a half, I was still not pleased with it. The management staff ran their site so poorly that I felt that I was better off making my own decisions rather than listening to them.
