Great job experience raises difficult to procure
Senior Security Officer (Current Employee), Bronx, NYAugust 31, 2015
Pros: Overtime available, variety of location options, get benefits
Cons: base pay, not much increase
The sites are well kept most people are very kind. Everything is well balanced and simple if you are alert and just do your job. Has good opportunity for overtime and management is helpful and flexible with hours when available. Co workers are sociable and professional. I learned how to manage long hours with downtime and then handling situations that escalate at a blink of an eye. I learned to keep composure in a crisis and to take well written and detailed reports. The hardest part is keeping the same energy and vigilance for the entire shift. The most enjoyable part is the daily interactions you have with a wide variety of people.

HR Plus Data Entry Specialist (Former Employee), Chicago,ILAugust 30, 2015
Overall, a basic data entry employment opportunity. Co-workers were hardworking but there was a lack of teamwork. Most enjoyable part of the job was the flexibility on hours.

easy going
Security Guard (Former Employee), Brooklyn, New YorkAugust 29, 2015
A typical day at work would involved checking all main doors and being focus on CCTV cameras. I've learned to always be aware of my surroundings. I was the only person on the post. So I would say my co-worker was amazing outcome and understanding. The hardest part about my job was being there by myself and leaving late by myself only because I was located in a rough neighborhood.

Great work place
security flex officer (Current Employee), San Jose, CAAugust 28, 2015
My day consist of taking care of new badges, patrolling the site, reception work, and occasionally GSOC duties. My co-workers are great with excellent communication skills. I have learned a lot from this job including dealing with emergency situations. Just coming to work is enjoyable. I don't have those feeling of "oh I can't wait to get out of work"

Pros: Good Experience, Great Co Workers
Cons: To much overtime, Receiving a bad site
At this job I learned good organizational skills and how to be on time. Timing is everything on this job. On this job you will have a hard time with working and balancing your free time because it demands a lot of overtime.

Poor Security company
Account Manager (Former Employee), Miami, FLAugust 23, 2015
Poor Management ,poor job security-no respect for family. Employee is dispensable and not important.

A company which doesn’t take into consideration your ideas even if they are brilliant. They should encourage you to grow because their company will grow and prosper with you as well.

Security Officer (Current Employee), Aurora, COAugust 23, 2015
Pros: exciting, unpredictable, adrenaline rush, customer interaction
Cons: dangerous
Never a dull moment. Can never predict the events that will take place at this company. I learned to always stay aware of my surrondings even quiet does not mean that everything is right. The hardest part of the job is the different personalitys. Co-workers/supervisors, everyone has there own techniques which makes things complicated at times. Many are not on the same.
