The most stressful part about working for ALLIED UNIVERSAL Is they can care less about there employees. All this company care about is the money and your just another number when it comes to them. This company can care less if you never miss any days all they care about is MONEY!!! When they get complaints about you they don’t do an investigation they immediately jump down your throat and threaten to replace you! Maybe more people should exercise there rights and start filing complaints about all unfair treatment! I am compliant with everything in there handbook but yet I work in a very uneasy work environment and the company knows and does not one thing about It! YOU GUILTY OF EVERYTHING WITHOUT IT BEING INVESTIGATED!

Very unorganized and they mess up on your pay a lot.. Definitely makes you want to do something better in life. They always want you to be there at a post but yet don't pay you correctly or give you the requested uniform you need. then when you show up at the post on your first day sometimes the security guards have to train you when the shift manager is suppose to. It could be a great company if it was organized and the higher people weren't all for themselves . smh..

For me, it's the endless runaround anytime I need a uniform, have to take time off, want to look into transferring, getting a raise, changing shifts. There is no actual person to talk to apart from the site supervisor. Any HR question is pretty much impossible to get a straightforward answer to. The merge was awful and left what used to be a great a great and attentive exec staff unreachable. I'm looking into finding a new company as I write this.

I can go on and on....but I would say that ONE of the most stressful things about working for AUS is that whether you're a regular guard, shift lead, or account supervisor, the company tends to make you feel isolated and without any support at all even if your site is falling apart. Our client manager didn't visit for a 6 month period despite telling us in the initial leadership meeting that our site "had more problems than any other." We talked to the branch secretary and found out he had visited every other site in 2 weeks, but left us high and dry. As a supervisor, it was extremely frustrating having to fight for every little bit of information/staffing needs/uniform needs/everything. It destroyed team morale, it left us unable to serve the client properly. No company has ever made me feel so disrespected.

I can speak only on MY experience. Conditions can be different from region to region, branch to branch, site to site. This is a large, disorganized, constantly changing company. They grow by buying as much of the competition as possible. My region did not seem to compensate for the growth...our branch is either severely understaffed or grossly incompetent. Or some mix of the two. From what I gather, this seems to be an industry trend. Stay away if you have better options.

Allied Universal have no compassion respect or loyalty for the people that is not a managers supervisors or leads they can care less about your personal problems such as your kids being sick or you have to go up to their school or someone in your immediate family is sick and in the hospital all they want you to do is work when they tell you and basically do as they say why they take long vacations with pay but screw up your pay you get fired at a drop of a hat for something you really don't do and it's a revolving door they feel like it doesn't matter how they treat you because it's always somebody coming in to replace you anyway.
