Underpaid, Underappreciated Role
Service Assurance Administrator (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXNovember 13, 2018
I wouldn’t recommend this role long-term but it will do. The only way to make any decent money is to work ridiculous amounts of overtime, if you can. Can’t use the restroom (which aren’t very clean) during your last hour.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Poor pay, few advancement opportunities

Transfer to Northern CA
Gate Officer Valerio Refinery (Former Employee) –  Benicia, CANovember 13, 2018
My personal opinion management could do better treating those who are loyal to the company by treating hard working allied employees with more respect and seniority. I also didn't feel welcome be other co-workers maybe they saw me as a threat who knows I have great people skills and I get along with all people. Allied Univeral needs to improve.
Pros
benefits, overtime, etc
Cons

2rd Shift Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCNovember 13, 2018
In this job all I was assigned to do was to walk around for 8 hours each shift and to make sure no one was stealing items from stores located in the mall. Also didn't really have an authority.
