I started here a little over a month ago. I really enjoy my job here it is very simple and to the point. There is no management or supervision at this site which can be a good and bad thing. There are not enough security staff assigned to the post I work so if someone calls out basically you are by yourself. Co-workers are great no problem with any of them. Management for the most part will answer you if its important but have a hard time getting a hold of them or they don't write back for days at a time. Overall its a good side job but there is basically no room for extra hours or OT.
Flexible schedule, Decent Pay.
No benifits for family. No advancement opportunities or hours to pick up.
Large company with multiple good paying contracts, but dominated by poor management
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – February 1, 2016
Being a large company, there are multiple well-paying contracts to work for, particularly in major industries. Job culture however, is very poor, with very little understanding of personal schedules, and in fact have multiple required, disruptive meetings outside of normal scheduling. Many sites are also dominated by poor manager that are dominated by professional paranoia.
I enjoyed working here during my freshman year in highschool. It was a joyful experience. My most favorite things was being alone at my post for ten hour shifts. My favorite part of the shifts were watching the building cameras.
Work consisted of organizing a daily log sheet everyday in accordance to my duties. I learned how to be more observant and detail oriented. My co-workers were very helpful and compliant. The hardest part of the job was maintaining security throughout all hours in a large site area. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people, honing my observation and analytical skills, and improving my communication skills as I met new people.
Flexible work days, organized and clear objectives
work as a flex officer (Current Employee) – Sacramento County, CA – February 1, 2016
Reporting on site, Reviewing logs. Making rounds and security and safety checks.Assisting clients with security problems. No problem needs to escalate. Management is not on site, but expects you to make the right decision. I often work alone. Dealing with rude people. Helping customers and clients.
A typical day at work for me starts at 2300 (11 pm) and ends at 0700 (7 am). When taking this job I learned responsibility along with awareness. My opinion on the management is very high, they are great people to work with and really try to be the best they can every day. For my co-workers I have heard many good things about them but with me working overnights I do not get to work with them often. The hardest part of the job is making sure all the paperwork is correct and ready for the day shift to use as their guideline for the day. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing everyday when I go home that I was able to keep everyone safe including myself.
Get to work with great people. Become familiar with the people at the workplace.
horrible pay long shifts no advancement, always being watched by the mall management and being treated like peasants, over worked under paid, had no authority and couldn't do anything if any serious incidents occurred for the companies liability sake, cheapskates
