Being accused falsely of viewing pornography over the guard-station Internet computer located at the Main Desk of Allied Barton's (SpectaGuard, when I was working there in 2002) client in Horsham - because of the nature of some of the content I was legally compelled to report this to Horsham PD - I was terminated for "defending myself," not ever getting or keeping a job since.


(when I get a job that "does a background check after hiring me," I get terminated immediately after the results of the check come back, and for those jobs where you have to "fill out the Social Security # background check prior," I never get called)


Reporting to work for my scheduled afternoon/evening shift I was approached - almost apprehended - by two of my "account managers," with them taking me to a side office.  The first words I heard them say "was that I was (being accused of) viewing 'really grotesque pornography' over the guard-station computer on this particular client site."  To their indictment I responded "NO, I am viewing my MSN e-mail and CareerBuilder, as you had previously stated I was allowed."  They then backed down, saying "Well, it was really not that bad - just 'Bikini.com'" - to which I responded "make up your minds as to what it is you are accusing me"!


They told me "Do not do it again" - I responded "I have NOT been doing anything wrong" - to which they responded (to the effect) "get to the guard desk and watch yourself."


Forced by this damning indictment to defend myself I did a search of the computer to see if anybody had been accessing the guard-station computer while I was on my rounds, and discovered all types of extremely grotesque (involving people and animals) pornography being down-loaded ... around 2, 3, 4, and 5 AM.  My shift was afternoon - Midnight.  Also, these images had been coming in roughly several months before my employment with Allied.  Some of the icons in these .JPGs and .BMPs provided a link to other forms of activity, which made it necessary to contact Horsham PD.  Because of the nature of the link I NEVER opened these images, but did a screen print of the Internet history proving what had been on the computer, without viewing those sites.


Telling the Midnight guard when he arrived that evening to "be careful that somebody might be accessing your work-station 'when you would be making your rounds' and viewing these things" ... he was the only one in the secured building during these hours ... so knowing wherein the blame lie ... he did not show up the next night.


Allied had to terminate him (of other ethnic background than myself); and because they had to let him go, they let me go saying "( I ) performed an illegal investigation" (completing distorting the truth, because they were covering for him because, even though a complete sexual pervert, he did arrive every night, on time for his appointed shift).


Being hired again at another prestigious site, through another security company, who was sub-contracted to Allied, upon Allied's background check (discovering my past history, where this untruth (they tried to make me guilty of some form of pornography as well) was again manifested and my reputation has been again tarnished.


Seeking afternoon/evenings in 2002 was so I could attend seminary during normally scheduled day classes / seeking this shift again years later was so I could get my public school teaching credentials.  Their first lies cost me seminary; and being terminated from this prestigious site (which shows up on employment records) is certain to cause me incalculable financial (and other) harm as did the first.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

NO LIE IS TOO BIG, NO LIE IS TOO SMALL FOR ALLIED-BARTON

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

   I DON'T KNOW WHEN THE PEOPLE WHO HIRE THIS BUNCH OF LYING, UNETHICAL,DISHONEST, PRICE-GOUGING THUGS ARE GOING TO REALIZE THE HIGH COST OF HUMAN MISERY AND SUFFERING THEY ARE CAUSING TO THE GUARDS WHO ACTUALLY DO THE WORK.

   THE PEOPLE WHO HIRE ALLIED-BARTON HAVE NOT A CLUE THAT THE EXTREMELY HIGH PRICES THEY ARE PAYING TO RENT A GUARD ARE NOT GOING TO THE GUARD. WE GUARDS GOT ONLY A FRACTION OF IT AND BARELY ENOUGH TO LIVE ON SO THE PEOPLE THAT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT DIDN'T GET PROTECTED SO WELL... ESPECIALLY WITH ALLIED-BARTON.

ALLIED BARTON WILL TELL ANY LIE TO KEEP YOU FROM GETTING EVEN A FEW CENTS RAISE AND THEY WILL FIRE YOU TO KEEP YOU FROM GETTING THE VACATION YOU EARNED WITH THEM. THEY LIE, LIE, LIE AND LIE AGAIN. THEY WILL EVEN BLACKLIST YOU AND MAKE UP LIES TO KEEP YOU FROM GETTING UNEMPLOYMENT. I DESPISE THEM!

   IF YOU HAD READ WHAT I WROTE ON ALLIED-BARTON, YOU WOULD HAVE LEARNED THAT THESE ARE SECURITY GUARD CONTRACTING COMPANIES AND THEY ARE ALL BAD AND THEY ALL LIE TO YOU, SKIM YOUR CHECKS, TRY TO SET YOU UP AND BLAME YOU FOR THEFT AND OTHER MALFEASANCE THAT THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR...

   I WAS IN THIS HELL FOR 20 YEARS OF MY LIFE.

   THE LAST COMPANY I WORKED FOR IS THE ONE WHERE I WAS HURT ON THE JOB, THEY DID NOT HAVE WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE ( ILLEGAL) AND THEN THEY SOLD THE COMPANY, LEFT THE STATE AND THE COMPANY THEY SOLD THEIR COMPANY TO LOST THEIR STATE LICENSE  BECAUSE THEY WERE TOO DAMNED CROOKED! SO I HAVE BEEN UNEMPLOYED AND UNEMPLOYABLE EVERY SINCE. I FELL ONTO SOLID TRAMAC IN A BADLY LIT AREA ( I COULD NOT SEE THE QUART BEER BOTTLE UNDER THE NEWSPAPER)AND INJURED BOTH KNEES AND MY LOWER BACK AND HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO WORK IN SECURITY OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT REQUIRES A LOT OF STANDING, ETC. SECURITY REQUIRES ALMOST THE ENTIRE RANGE OF HUMAN MOTION WHICH I CAN NOT DO. BECAUSE OF THE DELAY IN TREATING THE INJURIES --I HAD TO RELY ON A STATE PROGRAM --I HAVE DEVELOPED SEVERE OSTEOARTHRITIS --I AM HAVING TO FIGHT FOR MY SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY,
EVERY DAY IS FILLED WITH PAIN AND WORRY HOW I AM GOING TO PAY MY BILLS.

THE SECURITY COMPANY MY COUSIN WORKED FOR KNEW HE HAD A HEART CONDITION AND HE ASKED TO BE TRANSFERRED TO A LESS STRENUOUS POST BUT THEY REFUSED AND HE HAD A MASSIVE HEART ATTACK ON THE JOB AND DIED AND TOTALLED THEIR PATROL VEHICLE, THEY JUST BOUGHT ANOTHER JUNKER AND LIFE WENT ON. I HAD TO PAY THE COST OF BURYING HIM AND I HAD TO GO TO THE COUNTY INDIGENT BURIAL OFFICE TO DO IT. I ALSO HAD TO GIVE UP THE FUNERAL PLOT NEXT TO MY DAD THAT WAS BOUGHT FOR ME. NOW I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE I WILL BE BURIED EITHER.

AFTER 20 YEARS, I WAS ALL USED UP AND THROWN AWAY AND THE SAME WILL HAPPEN TO YOU!

I HAVE WORKED FOR THEM ALL. READ WHAT I WROTE ABOUT ALLIED-BARTON, THEY ARE THE SAME AS ALL THE OTHERS.... WELCOME TO HELL,I WILL SEE YOU THERE IF YOU ARE CONSIDERED TOO OLD TO RETRAIN OR TO GET INTO ANOTHER TRADE WHERE YOU WILL BE TREATED LIKE A HUMAN BEING.

GET OUT NOW, WHILE YOU STILL CAN.

#2 UPDATE Employee

Allied Barton security services Louisiana

AUTHOR: security professional - (United States of America)

I am a new employee with allied barton security service,and been in the private security field for 20 years.All of the security companies I have worked for for 20 years have ripped me off,took advantage of me,and deliberately denied me a promotion.well Im going to say this when you do wrong wrong comes to you.when you do right right comes to you.they can get away with anything here on earth,but whenb they face God at the great white therone of judgement there will be no time to repent,no second chances,and no ifs ands or buts. Im disapointed in all private security services.It's sad that people of such well know profession can stoop so low to attack their employees with termination when they are innocent. since I will get fired for retaliateing Im not going to do anything. God is going to do plenty.He fights my battles.He is my advocate,my lawyer,my deliverer.With God,the EEOC Louisiana department of labor,the ACLU anything is possible.they can't terminate God because he owns them.Im just going to work,be happy and when they do me wrong forgive them,and put everything in God's hands.what a man sows he will also reap.Im not going to say anything against them nor for them.Im just going to let go and let God.Im disappointed in all security services. willian burns and allan pinkerton would not approve of what man has done to the private security industry.their descendence sons and daughters need to carry their vision,and bring back their morals and values to the security industry. they may not have been christians but they did solve many crimes.Man has changed private security into a non retalitory,unethical,and biased profession,but in the end all who are corrupted will face judgement.not mine but god's.As far as my opinion of allied barton?  No comment!
