Lots of overtime
Security Officer- I (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OklahomaAugust 7, 2015
Pros: Lots of overtime
Cons: no days off
Unfortunately my time with Allied Barton was not as enjoyable as I wish it had been. Most of my work consisted of having to pick up the slack that many of my fellow employees could not.

Security Receptionist (Former Employee), Alexandria, VAAugust 5, 2015
Pros: None
Cons: everything
There are many issues with this company. However, management is not concern for its employees as long as there is a hot body to fill the position, training is definitely not an option. You will get thrown to the wolves and expect you to succeed or do well. This is the worse company I have ever worked for.

Security Officer (Former Employee), Renton, WaAugust 4, 2015
Typically, your schedule will fluctuate week to week. The management does not defend its officers, and will hang you out to dry. Kissing up is highly encouraged to get ahead, and not doing so will have you relegated to the worst shifts/posts. OJT is a joke.

Very friendly environment
Security Dispatcher (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVAugust 4, 2015
Pros: fun environment, teaching job, people friendly.
Cons: takes a year to accumulate 2 weeks vacation, hardly any benefits, and very little pay for above and beyond work.
My typical day at work is very enjoyable, I come in, count equiptment before I relieve the last shift. Then I hand out equpitment to my shift, Send Ofiicers to correct loctaions. Log patrols for my Officers, answer phone calls, monitor cameras, make and recieve phone calls, do work orders becasue something is always broken, joke with my coworkers and supervisor. Make and recieve call to the CSN Police Department, assist with reports they need information on or for me to input into the computer. Count the equiptment for next shift and be relived. Im pretty busy everyday but I enjoy it.

My co-workers are very agreeable people, very friendly and fun loving. We know when to joke around and when to be serious.

I love my job but I feel like all the work I do here I should at least be paid $15. As Head Dispatcher of CSN's largest campus I AM CSN. Which is why im looking elsewhere.

Overall Allied Barton is a good place to work, if the pay, vacations and benefit were better then it wiould be the BEST place to work.

Pros: paid lunches
Cons: write up every time you call off/
I have so far enjoyed working for this company. I have worked various posts at my current location but it seems that the account managers at my perticular location so not like to promote from within. It is sad to see so many officers come and go.

security (Current Employee), PAJuly 30, 2015
Pros: easy job
Cons: no room to move up in company, paychecks get mixed up
This job is ok if your going to school and need to earn some money but for those who need a career this is not it because there is no room to move up in the company and its hard to make a living with this job because its not enough money so if you need a career look somewhere else.
