Every site is diffrent
Security Officer (Current Employee), Monmouth Junction, NJSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: if you get a good site you'll be well compensated (medical insurance, paid vacation, anual raises, and possible promotions)
Cons: not all sites are equal, i unfortunately landed in a site with no future.
I work in a warehouse where not a lot goes on. I have asked multiple times to be internally transferred it's been two years and still nothing. They tell you how to do a lot of things I personally did not not receive any hands on training. The site where I work at had two officers but do to cuts now I am the only guard working. I manage myself and interacting – more... with the people here isn't bad. – less

Productive work environment that will keep you on your toes.
SECURITY GUARD (Former Employee), Monmouth Junction, NJSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: lots of opportunity for overtime
Cons: lack of job security, very little advancement.
A typical day at work consists of phone communications, building tours and checking in and out visitors. I learned basic first aid and basic smoke alarm maintenance. Management was great; they were one of the best run security organizations I've been associated with. My co-workers were knowledgeable and diligent. The toughest part of the job was writing – more... incident reports. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting all the employees within the building. – less

Easy job, great for a student. Low pay
Security Officer (Former Employee), FloridaSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: easy, can study or watch netflix and get paid.
Cons: no breaks, low pay, poor benefits.
Job is very easy. Don't do much. Pay and benefits are low. have to work a year just to get a week of vacation which is absurd. Hard to survive off of the low pay. It works for me because I can study for school. If you go into it knowing what is in store, and as a temporary or 2nd job its fine.

Great place to work but hard to advance
Security Officer (Current Employee), Washington, DCSeptember 14, 2014
Pros: great sites, good benefits, vacation and holidays are easily taken
Cons: management can be unhelpful at times, no room for advancement
I have worked for Allied Barton for over two years at multiple sites, and i love my job. However, I have been working part-time the entire time. Instead of providing me with a full time position, which I have applied for on multiple occasions, Im simply provided with another site to work for more hours. I do have a family, and working so much to get – more... a reasonable amount of hours takes away all of my time. I need a stable income, and they have not provided me with such. – less

Security Officer (Former Employee), Portland, ORSeptember 11, 2014
Loved working here. Everyone was willing to work with you and meet your needs as long as you worked towards meeting theirs as well. They really cared about the people they put on job sites and weren't simply hiring people to fill a spot.

Security Officer (Current Employee), Oakland, CASeptember 11, 2014
Dealing with major and minor's issue that comes with working in a hospital and it will challenge you. You have to be quick on your feet and fast to react in situations that my get out of control.

I dealt with patrolling the interior and exterior of the building, responding to disturbers and serious or mild issues.

Learning different security stations – more... on site – less

Good experience, but long hours are tedious.
Security Officer (Current Employee), Sellersville, PASeptember 10, 2014
Pros: mostly working alone, can get a lot of work done.
Cons: not much human interaction.
A typical days consists of monitoring the facility, intrusion alarms, and patroling the site. Learned a lot about FDA, OSHA, and DEA regulations. Management is always encouraging you to do your best and are always there to help and answer any questions. The hardest part about the job is the 12 hour shifts, they become tedious and exhausting, espeically – more... on long nights when the facility is closed for TEVA employees. I enjoy working alone for the most part and self motivation is key. – less
