Complaint / review text:
I have applied a number of times with Allied Barton in St Louis. I believe there is no reason whatsoever why they would not want to consider me for a position with them.
I am a great guy. An Athlete. Good customer service background. Good communication skills.
Without going into my professional background Im just a well rounded individual who is looking for a good opportunity. Each time I have applied with AB they have refused to consider me. I have even called up the office and have tried to talk to someone and that has proved to be useless. Today, at my gym, I was talking to this kid, said he was 23, and he told me he was working with Allied Barton in one of their offices in St Louis as a Dispatcher.
He told me he had a kooshie job at a desk and was being paid $21. An hour. I said WELL..
Must be nice. He said he works with some contract they have with providing security with the Boeing Company. I use to work at Boeing and I would LOVE to get back on there but it seems impossible. So I asked him HOW he got that job.
He says that he was in the service and whoever he is associated with in the service got him the job. He told me he's been on it a year and loved it. Well, I guess so, if he is making $21. An hour and sitting behind a desk at 23.
I was glad for him BUT a bit pissed as Im in my 40s and have tried many times to get a job at or through Allied Barton ONLY to be lied to or pushed away. Yet they will give a plush job like this to a 23 year old kid and most likely had to train him. Am I pissed? Yeah, Im pissed.
I don't care if he was in the service. Ive been trying to get a job thru them for a number of years and he just waltzes in and they give him a job like this...
No... Its not right.
Im more than qualified for a job like that and there is no reason why I could not have been hired for a job like that. I don't care if he was in the service.
I was in line way before he was for a job!
