ABM Industries Inc. is a facility management provider in the United States. ABM was founded in 1909 by Morris Rosenberg in San Francisco, California, as a single-person window washing business. As of 2013 the company is one of the largest facility management providers with over 130,000 employees, over 350 offices, and various international locations.
An employee shared in an anonymous interview, "ABM Industries just needs better managers and better pay for all they ask of you. The salary sucks and need to be improved and needs to train people better because they do a poor job at there work and rides the clocks.ABM managers are two faced and mislead their employees. They do not pay their older employees enough and do not pay for holidays and vacations and their benefits stink"

Current Employee - Warehouse Cleaner says"I have been working at ABM Industries full-time for less than a year Cons: It’s very unorganized, and always have to ask questions about things, which as other companies I work for were very informative from the start once you are employed with them. ABM isn’t informative at all they just threw me out there and started working..."
Former Employee - Senior Accountant says"I worked at ABM Industries full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Communication. Open office concept. No cubes"
Current Employee - Custodian says"I have been working at ABM Industries full-time for less than a year Cons: No floor machines and no wax! No inclement weather pay. If your building shuts down they will not pay you no matter what they promised to get you to sign on. Management protects his pets and those not doing their jobs, but asks even more of those who are actually working."
Current Employee - Custodian says"I have been working at ABM Industries full-time Cons: Never have paper towels, toilet paper , or soap ! Supposed to be getting bonus but nobody is . Also they play with you hours and money !"
Former Employee - EVS Attendant says"I worked at ABM Industries full-time for more than 3 years Cons: there aren't any cons, just misery"
Former Employee - Night Lead Custodian says"I worked at ABM Industries full-time for more than 3 years Cons: no employees, team work when needed, crappy pay"
Former Employee - Recruiter says"I worked at ABM Industries full-time for more than 3 years Cons: They hire only referrals and people who are connected by eachother. Leaders in this company werent trained and overall the pay was horrible!"
Former Employee - County Cleaner says"I worked at ABM Industries full-time for less than a year Cons: Not willing to work with you when you have a vehicle problem"
Former Employee - Operating Engineer says"I worked at ABM Industries full-time for less than a year Cons: Safety program (beyond janitorial staff) needs a major tune-up. Account managers don't communicate with their operating engineering staff effectively. When issues do arise and are brought to their attention, they are brushed off without even a formal arbitration to hear ALL sides involved. Furthermore, there are no follow discussions to provide clarity on the resolution. Went through 3 account managers in the 11 months I was staffed with them and was never notified of the change from the 2nd to 3rd manager. So when I did contact them, I was only told "I don't handle that account anymore". Then I had to ask for our new account managers contact info? Folks had I not asked they were not going to provide me with that information. The accounting side is atrocious. They delay your 401k contributions till the last legal day for deposit, and in my 11 months, they missed that date 6 times ( 54% of 401k contributions were deposited LATER than the legal date which is 15 business days into the following month). They also tried to prorate my earned sicktime payout and I had to have that corrected prior to my last day working for them. Overall, ABM should stick with janitorial services and not venture into the building management side, because this is clearly just a money grab for them as they put ZERO effort into their building engineering employees."

I asked why my schedule changed on three days notice and was told "I don't work for you. I can schedule you anytime I want." Schedules come out on Friday evening for the following week so 2 days notice. Great job if you have no life and like being treated like your nothing to them.

Its embarrassing..no one can help each other. Its like a competition. And the eyes in the sky apparently see everything. Even in the bathrooms i was told. Its ridiculous. This place was great pay for me. Near me. And i did my own thing. But no one should be this stressed out at a job.
