Great place to work
Security Manager/Human Resources (Former Employee), Vicksburg, MSFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: salary plus bonuses...
Cons: limited big contracts
Consisted of ensuring employees and company was in compliance with state and federal guidelines. In the security business it's hard to trust people. Management was great and so was co-workers. The hardest part about the job was tons of paper work. The most enjoyable was traveling.

Worst security company I've ever worked for!
Assistant Supervisor (Former Employee), IndianaJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: overtime always available, good coworkers
Cons: poor and unprofessional management, no benefits, poor training
Do not waste your time with this company!!! Upper management is a joke! They are obviously inexperienced when it comes to running a successful business. My site supervisor was the most unprofessional supervisor I've ever had at any job. No benefits, no direct deposit, drug test, background check and uniform costs comes out of your check. Turn over rate is ridiculously high because they can't keep anyone. Truly, a minor league team trying to play in the major league!

flexable and understanding
Security Officer (Full-time) (Current Employee), Saint Paul, MNNovember 20, 2014
Through my employment with American Security, they showed flexibility and understanding. Although it was hard at times to take days off, but they worked with me. On a typical day, it was never the same. It was always changing. Different people, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds came into my building on the daily basis. My coworkers were fun to work with, and they took the job seriously. i learned a lot from working with them. they improved my communication skills, customer service and gave me a better understanding of cultures and ethnic backgrounds.

Fast Paced on Call
Senior Security Officer (Current Employee), Pueblo, ColoradoOctober 15, 2014
Pros: get to meet new people every day
Cons: not really being able to have a home life to to the constant going
On a daily basis I will take calls for transports from Parkview, St. Mary Corwin, and Spanish Peaks ATU. AI would collect patient information such as name where the patient was where they were going and if the patient was on any type of hold, I would then go do the transport or dispatch another driver to go do the transport. I would also schedule other officers for our stationary properties and schedule events. I also document every transport for book keeping and billing purposes.

Typical Security Company
Security Guard (Former Employee), Greenville, SCJuly 17, 2014
Pros: good stable work environment
Cons: short breaks, depends of location
My day was spent at a hospital because that's where I was contracted to work. I watched patients sleep most nights. Management was ok. Co-workers were good. Staying awake a night was the worst part. Enjoyed the freedom when I was doing building checks.

It's Okay If Your Stationary
Security Guard (Former Employee), Forest Park, ILApril 2, 2014
When working at American Security everyday is the same you make your rounds by patrolling the parking lots, all floors and exits. You sign visitors in upon receiving proper identification. When problems arise you have to be quick to responding by notifying the authorities, american security personnel and building management. Your Co-workers are often friendly. The hardest part of the job is staying alert, because sometimes you sit for long periods of time.
