Upper management apparently never answers phone calls, texts or emails and always seem to "just leave" their office if you show up at the branch location. Not having support from upper management is daunting.

Very, very poor communication between the higher ups, and the guards meaning the employers and employees, been with them for 5yrs and it's pretty much the same no matter how many different account managers, directors etc takes over smh.

For the most part, Allied Universal is a good company to work for, in the sense that they have the ability to acquire premium accounts that offer a premium wage. Here in CA., our Oxnard Branch management does NOT understand the concept of "Work/Life Balance", as is painfully evident by arbitrarily scheduling officers to work mandatory 6-day work weeks because of their poor scheduling and bad management practices! So yes, this creates much stress, which in turn creates low morale, which in turn creates low productivity... and they wonder WHY there is high turnover?

The communication between the manager and the Supervisors is way poor, the manager barely come out from his/her office to visit other job site and check on their employees, too many people wants to be bosses and it makes me confused on which voice I'll listen too.. it stress me out when I'm working with people that wants the job but doesn't want to work for it but all they want is to sit on their butts and complaining all the time, and make negative commands about other officers that works hard and they always on their cell phone. I just hope everyone work together as a team despite their difference and not be selfish for once in the lifetime.

I was owed over a thousand dollars in OT up until the day I quit. I filed a workers comp claim 3 times because the HR rep kept losing the paperwork, and I didn't receive my pay until 4 months after I returned.

They mess up your check and getting anyone in the office to respond is impossible. The management office ignores you, wont call you or respond
