Disrespectful Company

one of the rudest and most disrespectful company's I have ever worked for you tell them you have a Family Emergency they tell you to prove it. then they tell you that you can't call off for that.

They want a note from the hospital that your family member is actually there. and you can't call off sick for one day without needing a doctors note.

Unethical Behavior & Misuse Of Power.

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

At Clearwater Florida Safe Harbor Shelter, a handful of employees do demonstrate Unethical behavior and misuse of power towards the females and males who are simply not doing well.. The woman are kept outside in bad weather conditions and are limited to one morning shower to keep up hygiene even while dealing with menstrual cycle issues ETC..

For example , the forecast showed a nice amount of rainfall Sunday March 10th 2024. All night as it rained the people where kept outside causing rain damage on the little belongings that they still possessed and themselves.

It doesn't matter if it's heavy rain or heat advisory warnings, the staff will keep these individuals outside in these conditions. These are free people receiving unjustified and unusual harsh treatment.

Write ups

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

unnecessary discipline, creates massive anger within branch offices .

bitter employees created and then the next day same managers, will text you asking to fill a shift. Thats why most employees hate this company,

Pay has been very accurate. but really its to late, After write ups are mailed to your house, its usually the beginning of the end.

Unprofessionalism towards women

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Original review Feb 19, 2024

I'm a supervisor at a location in Hollywood California and have been in Security for over 20 years. Allied Universal Security joined the company that I originally worked with and since then I have had nothing but issues with insubordination and discrimination from fellow officers and Supervisors.

If I report an issue it gets ignored or I'm told to look for another post or quit my complaining. The union and HR refuse to support me and haven't addressed the problem nor will they admit there is one. HR says the same thing as my Supervisor..

look for another company or change my career otherwise shut up and get back to work. This company is the worst!

Problem is if you complain to them or about them they fire or remove you rather then support you.

I want out this company

For starts 5 years going I can tell you from experience, can barely hold on to new hires payroll gets screwed up often and If someone calls out good luck you're going to be on a 16 or more shift no PTO if you work weekends I completely feel you they don't listen to issues to tell client until it's way too late has gone through multiple supervisors and branch managers within a year! And btw they don't answer back on pay issues

Inquiry

To,

All Allied universal management Good afternoon Sir/Madam

Sorry I am writing you again. Same issue over and over.

I claimed a vacation buyback in two emails to Allied Universal Services officials. Jerminia and Enrique. I claim 160 hours but they paid me only 40 hours. I notify Jerminia through Text message.

She responded don't send me text. Everything goes to Corporate.

Called Enrique today several times no response back. I believe some are not their job properly.

If this thing continues I have to look another job.

I'm requesting you to kindly ask them to comply with my request properly. I need money for my sick parents.

For your information exclusively.

2023 was the year. I went on vacation and took some time off.

I was not paid by them.

Thanks a lot for it. I'm expecting to hear from you soon.
