Money is bad. Not appreciated.

No overtime rate, they offer pizza instead. Management incompetent. Wages are wrong. Not a good company to work for. Overworked underpaid and understaffed!

Cons

Extremely unprofessional company

The level of incompetence in this company is very high. From management to HR . They do not follow procedure. Management style is very old school due to the fact that the manager are not up to standard. We had problem we payments, contract, benefits. They even managed to give us written confirmation of contract signed by HR and 1 week later they told us the contracts were wrong. There are way better company around just avoid. We supposed to get training but to save money they did internal training, extremely poor just to show the client. So basically you won't grow here. I spoke with people in other branches of the company. Its the same everywhere.

Pros

none

Cons

Very bad enviroment

Don't do it

Some good people work here, but certain members of managers think they can talk to staff like dog muck, and start pushing you out as you not wimper to there needs, lie to make people look bad and crushes them if they actually have to run the site as they haven't got a clue, call themselves a manager they can't manage to brush there hair never mind running the site. You know who I mean

Pros

1 Good manager

Cons

Money stressful and lieing management

Bad Management

I have taken a job with ABM as a FLT driver , didn't get showed round properly. Took nearly 2 weeks to get the card to use FLT . I was getting put on waste and cleaning duties. Time went on , I hardly was working on FLT , Always on cleaning duty. And management was unorganised and supervisor have a really bad attitude and doesn’t want to listen if you have any issues.

Pros

Fair pay

Cons

Bad management

The managers are just a waste of time and space they don’t listen to your needs or requirements it’s jus about them and making sure they look good and get paid

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours and not given warm clothes

Just a number

No interest in you, just how to make you work more for no extra pay, giving you extra jobs your not trained for, management have no understanding of the job you do or the rules governing your job.

Avoid

Pcv driver Gatwick, vehicles are illegal, they fill vehicles with red diesel and make you drive them on public roads, they did get prosecuted for this but still do it Mangers are shocking, your money is always wrong, they discipline you for not having uniform yet they don't supply it. Unless you have no choice I would avoid this company at all costs,

Pros

None

Cons

Money wrong, mangers, company

Security guard

Our area manager books dates to visit our site and never shows. Lack of uniform and PPE. Lucky to work with a good bunch of guys that are willing to cover holiday. If not we don't get our holiday due to cover requirements.

Pros

Pay on time so far!

Cons

Lack of communication

abm are great to work for

The environment was good to work in . The staff was understanding and helpful. Our duties as cleaners were to keep the building clean to a good standard.I noticed during my time at ABM that all the employees were punctual that helped us to neatly work as a team and to effectively communicate between us. I have also learnt how to defuse difficult situations at ABM. We used to undertake training courses conducted by the employer every month in order to be more productive. We were also trained of how to handle accordingly the chemical products under the COSH scheme. The employer made sure that the workplace be a welcoming place. I would recommend anyone to work in such a friendly workplace. During my time at ABM, I developed strong interpersonal skills where it came to forward instructions to my colleagues.
