Man has answers

Stated in the man pages, it says that you cannot use /var/at/at.allow. Read the man pages (or instructions, or directions, or readme, or whatever documentation you have) before asking questions. This would be a good practice for all of us.

    BUGS

    Traditional access control to at and batch via the files /var/at/at.allow and /var/at/at.deny is not implemented.

I saw that, but what does it mean? Users can't use at and batch? Must
sudo?

I did RTFM, but the only thing that allowed me to use 'at' was to add myself to /var/at/at.allow, your not-so-helpful post notwithstanding. I also needed to add a directory /var/at/spool before 'at' jobs would run.
