Site Manager (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 19, 2016
I was hired for one thing and was asked to do something completely different. Did not appreciate the bate and switch at all. My direct management was not very supportive and did not have my back when it counted. This was a bad choice for me
This company has the potential to be your last job - a career for retirement. However, you have to be willing to put in the hours; a lot of hours!
The company has a lot of programs for their line level employees however, this industry is very competitive so there are lot of budgets that make it difficult to keep your employees happy and paid well.
Great company to start off with for recent college grads and they invest in their managers if they're good. If you're a poor employee, they will be quick to let you go.
There are opportunities galor if you're willing to move out of state or to a different department, but again, the hours may just kill you.

It was a fun company to work for when it came to other employees, if you don't stay in your area and try to help others you will get written up. They treat you like toddlers, and my area manager was rude to everybody. Night lead was a creep and always had a bad attitude. HR did not listen to complaints because they protect managers and leads even when they are in the wrong. They treat their employees as if they are replaceable. They promise you raises that you never see. Horrible horrible company!
I was recently employed with SBM as Floor Tech and supposedly supervisor. I was very dedicated and giving my best skills which was completely dismissed ..management personnel at this company is completely disorganized not open for Quality suggestions no training process no independent quality evaluations no supplies in work areas .. personnel are not treated correctly with instructions company needs a complete overhaul .. do not listen to complaints or act upon them..

Management is terrible, everyone lets outside friendships conflict with their work on the inside. If you need something taken care of you have to go above to the higher bosses of the company. Its always your fault to why things happen or people treat you. You better plan working a lot of over time weekends and holidays. Not a good balance. Too much stress for a $9 an hour job.
Site Manager (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – June 30, 2016
The sites are run like a franchise; there are specific KPIs to meet, however the rest is left up to the manager. With this type of business environment comes freedom, however in the same breath there is no sense of community or culture. The most difficult part of the job is that the manager you are the face of the company on site, when it is good it is great, when bad it is really bad.
However, as with any management job, the people who report to you make you!
Janitor (Former Employee) – Lehi, UT – July 28, 2016
The management is terrible, they have a new head manager at the adobe facility in Lehi Utah and the guy lacks of management skills. The people that work there work with fear, specially the ones at night. The supervisor has some serious anger management issues. So if you're thinking about applying for this company think twice
You was pretty much on your own with this job, nobody to bother you as long as you do your job and do it good. You can take breaks when you can, you get two fifteen minute breaks and one half hour break.
good breaks, as long as you do your job, you took your break when you can, great people and great work place and good pay.

No one knows what they're doing and no training. Everyone hates their jobs, and this is the corporate office. They keep stupid people in for job security and the best people leave. Don't even give this company your time, everyone is unhappy and unaccountable.
Site Manager (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – July 9, 2016
Terrible HR Policy and Hiring Practices - The application with all paperwork required to hire an ~$8/hr employee is over 30 pages! WOW! You may say to yourself HR will handle this, the answer is no. All Site Management is responsible and it can be a miserable experience. These applicants are janitors, not Federal Employees.
Management - Most of the Regional/Divisional/Executive Level Management is just glad not to be on site. They are extremely lazy and not very intelligent.
Hiring Practices - Malicious and Intentional to say the least.
Safety Program - Overdone for a janitorial service. Do not sign anything as they will use it to fire you if they want to get rid of you.
Not many pros here other than the custodial staff is full of good people to work with. However, they are abused by the customer and you have no say so over any of it.
Bad Management, Bad Hiring Policies (30+ pages to hire an $8hr employee, HR Policy is the worst I have ever seen and Training is terrible.

Stay clear and far. This is not the place for smart innovative thinkers. NOT the place for any minority. Management is horrible. Lots of freinds brought in with 0 experience and you will have to train them.
Developer (Former Employee) – McClellan, CA – May 10, 2016
I've been working in SBM as Web Developer the first 3 months was ok but by time, the problems show up the CEO micromanage everything the managers want always hear you say "yes" after the 3 months same thing everyday spin in the same place for more than year.
Managers are sucks and they don't know what they doing
GMP (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – March 15, 2016
The company could care more about every employee, not just the top. Also mobility and training. My work experience has be meh, I believe the management, should have better hands on training, and also show respect and care with their workers. Also Management tend to favor few people,and leads should be able to work and preform their jobs since they are getting paid well. I don't think getting $30k a year to watch people is worth that cost!.
One of the sites in Raleigh, has poor leadership skills. This particular site is a dirty disgusting site ever. The pay for the amount of work is ridiculous. The lead there needs to either retire or have extensive training.
Poor pay, poor leadership, underpaid overworked, regional manager is garbage
