Security Officer (Former Employee), Overland Park, KS – September 16, 2015
Pros: Easy job, Lots of work hours available, paid breaks
Cons: Lots of overtime, no work/life balance, management has favorites, bad training program
I worked with this company for just under a year and could not stand it, well at least at the site that i worked at.I had started with another security company but they lost the contract and allied came – more... in and took over. Management is horrible no communication from them and if so its negative with threats of job loss. The people at the main office of the city where i worked were not that great, and i always felt they were fake. I seen alot of great officers leave or get fired over little things. When new officers start at my site they barley get enough training to do their job correctly and than get into trouble because they didnt know what to do. – less
It is a place where you can grow with the company. You stay pretty busy with greeting the clients and paperwork. You keep a close eye on all of the cameras. I really enjoyed working with all the people and clients.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – September 14, 2015
No real complaints except the hours were terrible. I worked alone in a large building, so it was also a little boring, but there was plenty of work to "find", which I did by performing extra perimeter checks.
Security Guard/Dispatch (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant, SC – September 13, 2015
Pros: Very Reliable and Flexible Work
Cons: Average income
This is a very flexible job fitting for any personality type as each site has it's own way of operating. The only con I have noticed about the company is that management definitely needed better training.
The job is the most easiest company to work for at PNC Security. Everyone works as a team and gets along. Hardest part of the job I would say that you are not armed with anything, so if something bad happens you have to physically take action by calling the police.
Security (Current Employee), Denmark, SC – September 11, 2015
A typical day at work doing dorm checks and dealing with different personality. I learned that college child's is very difficult to deal with when they are fresh out of high school. The hardest part of the job is trying to example to a 18 year old that they are not grown yet.

Security Officer (Former Employee), Riverside, CA – September 10, 2015
Pros: A job
Cons: Schedule, Pay, Advancement, Management
Some sites to choose from. Overall, they set all scheduling and unless you bend to their desire look for a job elsewhere. About 25% of workers call off and leave you exposed to too much overtime at mundane work sites.
