Productive and fun place where you can see new things.
Security/ Customer Service (Current Employee), Boston, MAJuly 28, 2014
On a regular day it would be usually a Celtics or a Bruins game. The crowd would be heavy for the Bruins game and a lot of drunk people. The environment was very peaceful and friendly .

AMGEN Escort Officer (Former Employee), Thousand Oaks, CAJuly 28, 2014
Pros: easy, better money than normal
Cons: boring
It wasn't a bad job. Just boring. Alot of sitting down and watching contractors work. In the rare occasions I got to work around other guards it wasn't too bad because we could talk and the people were all pretty decent. A couple of the guards would go out of their way to make you have a bad day which was really awkward to experience. I'd say the worst – more... part of the job was no matter how much you advanced until you became management you were paid 10.00/ hour so advancing seemed pretty pointless. – less

Not a good company to work for.
Lead Security Officer (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 28, 2014
Pros: that i have a job
Cons: management does not treat their workers with dignity and respect and pays an unfair wage.
Securing building sites and property and also looking out for the best interest of the saff, faculty and students at my site.
I have learned that at my company it is not what you know but who you know.
Management are not honest and truthful at my current company.
The hardest part of the job is knowing that know matter how much training and good my attendance – more... is that my company does not promote qualified people when a position opens up. Working for a company who makes a large amount of money but does not care to compensate it's employees fairly.
Dealing with the different department workers at a university setting. – less

Can be a very boring atmosphere but requires attentiveness at all times
Security Guard (Current Employee), Lansdale, PAJuly 26, 2014
A Normal day working at Allied Barton is very structured. You will sign in visitors and guest and provide them temporary badges as means of identification.You will monitor lobbies and cameras at all times. Completing hourly tours where you patrol the building in search of any faults in monitoring systems and thermostats. Closing and shutting down the – more... building depending on your shift would also be a part of your day.

One very important thing that I learned is how to deal with Violent individuals. If an employee comes in enraged at manager becauseof a spouse or they have been laid off, our job as Security Officers is to calm them down and talk to them.

You rarely work with management, although they have it set up like this he may call frequently just to see how things are going at the site. Once you are hired the only other topic of discussion may be your schedule,or at times there may be contractors working in your building that he will inform you about. For the most part Management is pretty professional

My Co-workers were extremely focused and took their job very serious. Most of them were also very team oriented which makes everyone's job that much easier. They understand that we work in huge Merck Buildings and the amount of people that come in to work on a daily can make our job tedious. Communication with not only each other but the Merck Employees benefited our team a lot and made for a unique work atmosphere.

The hardest part of the would also be my most enjoyable. If you worked in the training center you had to deal with hundreds of people a day that may have never been to the building before.Merck employees from all over the world would come and have meetings at our site. You could get 50 people at a time that you have to sign in and also try to direct them to the appropriate rooms. On top of this the gates to enter the building may not be working properly and the phone is ringing from a person that works at the building saying she need you to radio maintenance. At this point your all alone with 60 visitors starring at you wondering why your taking so long and why don't you have help, but you cant get help because your short on staff for the day. These moments are what i enjoyed the most because they challenged me, and made me work to my full potential. I knew I couldn't make everyone happy but for the majority i did and that what i enjoyed. – less

Not an enjoyable job, used as a job while commuting to college.
Security Officer Shift Supervisor (Current Employee), Hershey, PAJuly 25, 2014
Cons: no breaks, every little thing about the company was terrible.
Not an enjoyable job, pay was unfair and off frequently, poor management, not worth the money, would not recommend the company to anyone. Basically work for nothing, so big companies get insurance breaks, if you are a supervisor you will get screwed on your paychecks as they won't pay you your wages unless you are "in charge" also others from various – more... sites make more than you, even when you are in charge. Management of the company is terrible and require training courses online that are nothing short of a waste of time. – less

A company that provides experiences and movement
Operations Manager (Current Employee), Mountville, PAJuly 25, 2014
Pros: internal promotion opportunities at the security officer level
Cons: workload and life balance
The responsibilities and demands are set very high, as the company prides itself on being a leading Contract Security Provider. There are many challenges in the management levels, balance workload and personal life. The company, compared to other similar organizations, supports their officers and works hard to bring the best out in their work.

Senior – more... Management is good as they do not micromanage and place trust into the lower level manages to complete their daily, weekly, and monthly objectives. – less

good organization but management poor
Security Guard (Former Employee), seattle waJuly 25, 2014
sitting at a security desk staring at employees as they enter and exit noting any unusual occurrences. I learned about time management and following procedures laid out without deviation. The management was poor and employees` grievances were not addressed professionally. Most of my co-workers were good employees and we performed our duties well as – more... a team and as individuals. Hardest part of the job was when there was an incident be it a medical emergency or security breach, then I had to write lots of reports.
Most enjoyable part of the work day was the end of the day. – less

Security Officer (Current Employee), Brookpark OhioJuly 24, 2014
Pros: the pay is great
Cons: it is a union shop
AlliedBarton is not a bad place to work the supervisors are easy to work with and for the most part the rest of the guards are great people. I have learned a lot about the operation of their security practices . the alarm system of the site dispatching officers to the proper areas the hardest part of the job is working the truck gate one guard two gates – more... you get tired fast. the best thing is mobile patrols . – less

Good Company
Corporal (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCJuly 24, 2014
Pros: good people, decent pay
Cons: not enough control by alliedbarton management
AlliedBarton was a good company to work for, and the training was adequate for the job. Since it's contract security, however, much of the time management decisions are left up to the client or property manager, and this can cause issues. As a security officer you know what needs to happen to secure an area/facility, but the property managers sometimes – more... don't, and won't allow certain changes. That's the nature of the security business, however. – less
