Good place to start learning great people
Janitorial (Current Employee) –  Syracuse, NYDecember 12, 2018
Good place to learn the basics of janitorial work. Constantly moving you will get a work out once you get use to it it'll go by like a routine job. Just stay focused and rested you'll do good.
Pros
Good hours and pay, learn new skills, great coworkers
Cons
Will need to go over mistakes made so adds more labor

Generally a dead end job with a chill and easy going vibe as a trade off.
Shuttle Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXDecember 11, 2018
I felt it was OK for an entry level college job. As long as you were on time and didn't try and cause issues, it was generally a minimal stress experience. That being said, it quickly became apparent that's all it was going to be. ABM is not the kind of company that seems to view people as anything more than company equipment to do a certain job until they're automated out. Pay from company was abysmal, although it was offset by being allowed to take tips. Any skills/certifications you needed to advance (ie a CDL), you were completely on your own to get. Ironically, I later learned CDL drivers fared worse given what they're worth and the fact they're tipped no where near as much. General attitude is "we're here for the bottom line and you're here for a job, not a career".
Pros
A relatively easy to get and overall easy going job with tips.
Cons
Pretty much everything else.

Great Company
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LADecember 11, 2018
We had a contract to guard a vacant property until it was sold. We only worked one person per shift so it was a very peaceful environment and my coworkers were great, we would always have great conversations when we would relieve each other at shift change, they were really nice people, I enjoyed their company and they were all easy to get along with.
Pros
Nice work environment and great coworkers.
Cons
Temporary Job

A great company to work for, with awessome staff and good salary.
Facilities Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Chantilly, VA 20151December 11, 2018
A nice professional environment, great staff, enjoyed my duties and nice salary. I got to work with all levels of the corporate world, from CEO's to the janitors. also, geographically it was close to home a very nice and painful commute. It was also a Monday to Friday job which gave me the weekends to dedicate time to my family and some relaxation. UI would have still been there if it was not for the fact that there was a company cut backs and reduction of good employees. They were happy with me but the company sold out and did not renew the ABM contract. I was in charge of correcting various issues throughout the facility and or working very closely with the vendors that would come in to address more specified areas of expertise.
Pros
great staff
Cons
none

Slow-paced
Baggage Agent (Former Employee) –  Queens, NYDecember 11, 2018
Job is slow-paced working when you are working in the rows. Sometimes you're sitting there for eight to nine hours a day staring at bags slowly going by. It can be a drag if you there by yourself.
Pros
1 hour lunch.
Cons
Slow- paced

Office Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 8, 2018
You were given assigned floors in an office building to clean with a partner from top to bottom and sometimes there were still people within their office cubicles still working and you could not clean thoroughly but were still required to do so or you would be written up so workers sometimes had to stay later than planned but not be paid overtime.
Pros
Small 5 minute breaks between floors
Cons
People observing sometimes made rude gestures towards you
