Above Average Security Company
Manager (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – March 2, 2017
I started working for Barton 2003. Then Allied acquired us and we became AlliedBarton. Then we merged with Unversal Protection adn became Allied Universal. It is better than most security companies. I worked for a few others that have little or no benefits whatsoever and the pay was lousy. AU has fair pay wages in many locations. They need to invest more time leadership development and mentoring, though. If you don't know WinTeam, you will not get into management very fast. Like most jobs, however, if you come to work on time, don't call in sick, look sharp and have a good attitude, you will do better than most. As big as AU is, insurance is offered, but I am disappointent that good and inexpensive insurance is NOT offered. The dental and eye insurance is pretty good. They offer 401(k), but you cannot borrow from it anymore.
