Slight growth potential with high overtime opportunities
Security Guard (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAJune 12, 2015
Pros: Paid lunch breaks
Cons: Strict rules that change often
A great company that is known around the nation. The sites I've been to were laid back and employees have been pretty helpful to new officers. Management could use some help as far as the thought behind new memos. The hardest part is being able to multi task while keeping up the highest customer service. At the same time its the most enjoyable because the people we provide customer service for treat us with the most respect.

Very good benefits and hours
Security Guard (Former Employee), San Francisco, CaJune 11, 2015
Pros: Concrete hours and respectful clients
Cons: No breaks, only guard on site
A typical day working for Allied Barton I was required to interact with business owners and make them feel safe in any situation. I also had to patrol a very large property every 30 minutes ensuring no windows or doors were broken or ajar. Overall it was a great work experience for someone looking for full-time demanding work. I enjoyed feeling needed on my job sites.

Supervisor (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 10, 2015
Working as a Security officer for Allied Barton Security Services I've learned to be very observant and proactive. The daily tasks has to be conducted in an orderly fashion. I worked as unit with my coworkers by communicating about current events and giving daily updates throughout the tour. The hardest part of the job was when messages weren’t transpired efficiently from officer from the previous shift and a lot of times you are to use your own judgment provide efficient customer service. The most enjoyable part of the job is taking annual MSO (Master Security Officer) exams to reach a higher ranking. Throughout my experience as a security officer I was granted the opportunity to become a Security Supervisor.

Productive and fun workplace
Security Officer (Full-time) (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJune 10, 2015
A typical day at Allied Barton for me consisted a 40 hour work week. I would start off my day by getting to work 20min before my shift started. Do a full patrol round of the building checking each floor, security equipment, and fire alarms along with the normal building alarms.
While working at Allied Barton I learned how to work different kinds of security cameras, and alarm systems. I was under good management while working their and was able to develop a good working relationship with my co-workers. The hardest part about working their was dealing with the different attitude of people that would come in and out of the building to visit their love ones.

Low pay but gauranteed hours
Security Officer (Former Employee), 1235 North loop W Fwy #400, Houston, TX 77008June 8, 2015
Pros: Overtime
Cons: Low pay
I learned most of my security experience from this job. The pay wasn't all that great, but I did manage to make a decent income for myself via working overtime. I never really had any serious issues with this company. But the only thing that I didn't like besides the hourly pay was the fact that I never got a raise over 50 cents.

Its a JOB
Armed Guard (Current Employee), Richmond,VAJune 5, 2015
Pros: Job security
Cons: low pay/ no advancement
Job could be better if Management and supervision had more concern for employee work life balance. High turnover and average salary. low efficiency. subjective to management experience other sites may be different. Strongly doubt it though. Hard to get day off and threatened with termination is not a good way to manage.

Security Officer at Voorhees Town Center (Current Employee), voorhees njJune 5, 2015
typical day at work you do three jobs cctv/dispatch, foot patrol, vehicle patrol. all consist of observing and reporting. i have learned the functions of each position and responsibilities, also to better my customer service. management needs some improvement because they don't really communicate effectively when it come to need to know matters, on the other hand management is great and making a schedule. my co-workers seem to not want to work together, almost like they are just there to get paid and not care about the rest. the hardest part of the job i would say is having to be involved in an incident and making a decision that would get you fired due to lack of effective training and communication. the most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with customers and making them feel secure.
