Don't
Security Enforcement Officer (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHFebruary 24, 2014
It started out well enough, I needed a job and they were the highest paying position I had gotten for a week or two. Within the first week of employment however, I had more than triple the work load I was told about, incompetent managers who seemed disinterested with any problem that didn't involve themselves, or had any idea of the day to day goings – more... on at the site they were supposed to supervise. The best part of my day was my coworkers, the real reason I stayed for as long as I did. We were all in the same boat, and watched out for one another. Overall, there is no reason these people should be in business. The management "team" is paid to sit at home and be on the phone, the higher ups know nothing about the sites you'll be working at, and will leave it up to the guards on the sites to fend for themselves a majority of the time. – less

Decent place to work
Security Officer (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHJanuary 28, 2014
I was assigned a position as a gate guard at Menards in Evendale. Though Aegis I feel is a good company, the client for whom I was assigned was less than desirable.

You get what you pay for
Former Client (Former Employee), CincinnatiDecember 1, 2013
Pros: cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Cons: out for their own.
As a client, we acquired their services for our downtown office, and were highly disappointed. We found out they were underpaying their guards the rate we agreed upon, thus creating a high turn over rate and new guards every week. They were highly under trained and took security too serious.One guard I found out didn't even have his license on her. – more... No hi's or bye's while my tenants left the office building, but were quick to jump the gun and harass my employees. Spend smarter with the higher services. – less

Open relationship with management team
Security Officer (Former Employee), Largo, FLFebruary 23, 2013
This company is expanding with plenty of job growth opportunities for the right people of good character. If the desired site became available to me I would return in a heartbeat. The management team is stern but fair and will work with you. The wages could be better but due to the highly competive nature of the security business with companies constantly – more... trying to outbid each other the compensation is what it is in this particular arena and many times site specific. My operations manager was very fair with me and it was a pleasure to serve the agency as a whole. – less

Good place to start out
Security Guard (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHDecember 12, 2012
Pros: pay, lunch break included in hours, overtime
Cons: management, boring, overtime
Good company in general, management is spotty depends on the site you work. LOTS of OT chances, they will call at all hours of the night to fill call offs. Decent training, but you will get different directions from everyone.

Easy going job. A lot of walking around.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHDecember 8, 2012
Pros: a lot of hours.
Cons: a lot of turn around shifts. (but more money)
On a typical day of work, you get to meet a lot of important people from the U.S. Government. You can not learn much from the company because their main account was a top secret facility. They are military contractors who are not supposed to divulge any information. The management was very nice and sufficient. I enjoyed the co-workers. They were all – more... friendly. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the updated contact list the companny had. Always new employees in and out of there. The most enjoyable part was experiencing the respect you get as an officer. – less

Great interacton with fellow employees and tenants
Protection Services (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHAugust 12, 2012
Pros: i was surprised at first to find we did not clock out for meals. however, we weren't guaranteed an uninterrupeted meal.
Cons: after a certain time, the lights and air conditioning was turned off, and it could get rather uncomfortable.
My company took seriously the maintenance of security and protocols of its employer and company guidelines. The typical day was primarily checking the various offices of the building; looking for potential problems or reporting existing problems. The management of our duty stations was sufficient to keep me and my fellow co-workers updated and aware – more... of what was in special need of observation. My fellow co-workers were fine people and I enjoyed my time with them. At night, the building shut down, tenants were gone for the day, and the last few hours could be long. The most enjoyable of the day was at the changing shifts where we exchanged information. – less

brilliant workpace, great experience
Training Manager/Team leader (Former Employee), BaghdadFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: wages, experience gained in tactics
Cons: long periods away from home, very dangerous tasks
A typical day would be myself having meetings with Senior US government officials, tasks would then be issued out to teams as per meeting. My job would then be to take my task and provide my team with orders/instructions to the task ahead. After preparations were complete I would take my team would escort a number of important US officials to sites – more... throughout Iraq and the middle-east when required.

I learned a lot about security on the ground and in large bases. Learned about tactics and how to adapt them for very different scenarios. Learnt how to interact with different ethnicities who have come from very different backgrounds in different scenarios from meeting them to dealing with incidents.

Management were very good and provided me with all the tools I needed to do my job and keep my clients and my team safe when out on very dangerous missions.

All co-workers were outstanding including my Iraqi linguists.

Hardest part of the job was being away at times from family for more than 4 months at a time.

Most enjoyable part of the job was enjoying the satisfaction that you are making someones life better. Seeing others who are not as fortunate as us to have been given some of life's little luxuries and in some cases basic utilities. – less
