Ambiente de trabajo muy flexible pero estresante

Evaluación destacada de Indeed

La evaluación más útil según Indeed
Muy buena compañía, mucho overtime y diferentes puestos para manejar entrenamientos, deposito directo semanal pero sin oportunidades de crecimiento.

Its fine

Its an okay place to work. Expectations and SOP change constantly, they want the world from you, but dont want to help at all to accommodate you. The only reason it isnt a 1 star is because they pay 1 5x overtime, and they pay on time.

Favoritism at The Frost Tower

Long story short, they have favoritism here. Went 3 weeks without a paycheck, THEY STILL OWE ME A FREE MEAL. One person gives creepy vibes. They accuse employee for not having proper uniform, when the company distributes the uniform, i.e.; I may have short sleeves, some other employees have long sleeve. OH AND THEY WANT YOU TO WEAR THE SUIT JACKET IN 106 degree weather. Honestly not worth the time. Only apply if your will to deal with micro-management.

Pros

Paid Lunch Breaks

Contras

No matter how HOT, Cold, or Rain, They want them patrols done

Company is unprofessional

The company just hire people and promote people with no experience. They never ask you for your credentials, just hire you, provide a shirt and then offer you the lowest paying site, and expect you to keep showing up for work!

Unappreciative/Unorganized

This is by far the worse company I have worked for , don’t get me wrong this is a very easy job , it’s just the fact that they are understaffed especially at my location, they are very unorganized, and expect you to work all this overtime. If you have no family, or no interest in living your life this is the job for you.

Pros

Easy going

Contras

No breaks, unorganized, under staffed, unappreciative

Want money and no time off

If you want overtime and no time off get this job work hard and load up on money. If you want a life don’t. They change schedule in middle of the day( for day working) let alone the weekly schedule. They don’t know how to organize at all and seem to jut throw people around with no thoughts about anything. I close than open at least once a week. And so do others at same site. So it’s not needed. But that’s the punishment for refusing to work doubles

Pros

High pay

Contras

No time off. No organization. No care
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Boring and tiresome. Cannot sit during entire shift

Same as above except management is very poor and changes without notice constantly. Very poor management and company cannot keep good managers. Also working conditions are poor and very hard with no sitting down throughout 8 to 12 hour shifts

Pros

Close to home.

Contras

Short breaks long walk to clock in
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Unprofessional

Workers are lazy, unmotivated, and offer little to no help for new hires. Constantly relieved late and the management does nothing about it. The turnover rate is high for good reason.

Events can be fun. Others interesting. Bit more variety with different events.

Depending on what events are available to work, there is a variety of venues. And flexibility to fit as minimal extra cash to more p/t work to make little or as much extra funds want or need. Management Is sometimes a bit confusing w/ changing posts. for most part, management takes pretty good care of employees. Type of events vary from concerts to private wedding party. Way better since lockdown from COVID. Events booking up with

A team effort.

I’ve worked at AU for over seven years. At a larger site, the work ethic of each individual guard is key. Some take their job seriously, others do not. On smaller accounts, you might get lucky with 6-7 guards most of which are good. The immediate Supervisor and Portfolio Mgr’s must set the tone, and lead by example. They must also make themselves available to address and fix any concerns the guards may encounter during their shifts, wether that be behavioral or broken equipment.

Pros

Variable shifts / multiple locations. Provide Uniforms. ( You purchase the job appropriate shoes ).

Contras

Low pay for work demands, below industry standard of starting wage: $23-$25, No Medical Benefits whatsoever, if your PT, and/or work under 32 hrs weekly

Care/Understanding

Allied Branch personnel do not show care or understanding for their workforce and their personal lives. Constant punishment for the employees that work hard and sacrifice personal time for the site. Call outs are excessive and the professionals that cannot stay past their scheduled shift are written up or terminated regardless of work performance. Turnover rate is high, someone is replaced at least every week. I wouldn't never recommend to work for a company that punishes an employee for leaving site to be with their parent at the hospital who may be having their final moments.

Nothing

None My last location was not favorable. The manager did not care. There is nothing more to say. I did not have a good experience with this company. Period!

Pros

Nothing

Contras

Breaks to short and hard to find a place to have your meal
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Very good place to work

This company gives on demand help to its employees when needed and is a place you can rely on. You get lost of training on your own time! You can always depend on other assignments when one doesn't fit and be placed at other sites. You are never without a job here.

Pros

Paid lunch breaks

Contras

You can't leave your post until properly relieved. You may end up working a double.
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Unorganized

Management staff has no clue on what they do I listed my availability and they tried to schedule me on the opposite days Also I ask for nights and try and give me day shift hours
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Not the best job in the world

Good job if you don't want to do anything most of the time or it's the only job you can find or getBad thing is relying on people to actually show up to work on time, can't leave your post until someone comes to relieve you regardless if you have appts, want to go home,etc., some supervisors don't even answer their phones when you callPros- easy job, job security because they always need guardsCons-get bored easy, have to rely on people to come to work just so you can go home,work, school,etc, can't leave if no one shows up stuck at your post till another guard or supervisor relieves you
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

No support

No support from management. You get taken off of post with no explanation as to why. It may be months before you get another post if you get one at all. Checks WILL be wrong 95% of the time.
