Security Officer (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZ – February 10, 2014
Pros: decent hours, good career starting point
Cons: low advancement, low pay, no raises, variable management
A typical day consists of receiving "Pass-on" information regarding anything that either happened since your last shift, is ongoing or is upcoming. You perform an initial patrol of the site and spend the rest of the day responding to situations that come up, monitoring activity at the site and completing detailed activity reports for all actions taken: – more... patrols, key visitors to the site, emergencies and responses to certain situations. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the community and interacting with the employees at the site. Co-worker experience varies depending on their professionalism and dedication to the job. Most managers are satisfactory, but there are some that seem not to value their officers (same as most jobs). Overall this is a good place to start out as a security professional. However progress is slow as you must apply and be reviewed for any position along with any new hires,regardless of tenure or experience with the company. There is no out of state transfer policy, even if you are planning to stay with the company. Raises are non-existent most of the time due to the client deciding whether or not they want to pay more for the same service upon review of the contract, about every three years. Training is good and easy to access. There are training classes covering everything from management and human resources to classes for new officers. – less

Pros: flexible schedule, overtime allowed
Working for this company provided me the experiance and skills with working with a company based computer system. Basically being the only one person in the office allowed me to utilize my learning skills with the companies computer programs. All learning of the program was done individually without supervision or training. Again all customer service – more... skills were utilized to their fullest as I dealt with many different clients along with employees on a statewide basis. – less
