Productive day at American Securtiy
Senior Officer (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WISeptember 19, 2017
A typical work day at American security for me would be Arriving at park bank at 8:30 ( the account i was stationed) getting the Security Cameras and computer set up making sure everything is in place. Checking with the bank tellers and personal bankers to see if they've notice anything weird while they were on their way into work.communicating with my partner to make sure we checked everything off the to do list before opening time. 9 am rolls around the bank has open to the public making sure no suspicious activities are going on outside or inside of the bank. keeping everything smooth and quiet for the clerks and the customers while maintaining a safe area outside for customers to approach the bank. 5pm comes around once again talk to the clerks to make sure the day was safer than the day before for them walking around to make sure the bank is still secure all doors and windows watch each teller and personal banker get into their car safe and sound lock down the bank and head home to prepare myself to do it all over it the next day.

American Security has many contracts with different companies. Because of this, they can work with your schedule so you can work other jobs, go to school, or spend time with your family if needed.
Cons
Contract's may expire causing you to relocate or not be available to work for some time.

bad place
Professional Security Personnel (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WISeptember 6, 2017
Management was old and raggedy. Supervisors were uptight because they were the "old" generation. Literally folks here were over 60 years old gibbering like they own the place.

Very poor management, If you want mediocre this is for you
Communications Center Operator (Former Employee) –  Inver Grove Heights, MNJuly 31, 2017
After four years with this company, the daily routine was someone would not show for shift, regular personnel late for shift. Management were some of the worst offender for arriving last minute or late. Personnel are placed in positions they are not trained for under the warm body theory. After 4 years of covering shifts for others, following the policies and expecting others to do the same you find it serves no purpose because only certain people are held accountable and to standards.
Pros
Can be great pay
Cons
Don't expect any appreciation for hard work

I worked for this company for a year. I enjoyed the job but pay wasn't all that great. But it was a job. Once of the supervisors from the northside district was mean and unprofessional when I was there.

Workplace duties.
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Jefferson, GAJune 12, 2017
American Security is a contract company. It was contracted to Hubbell Lighting in Jefferson GA. A typical day is logging trucks in and out, patrolling parking and indoor warehouse making sure all doors and areas are secured at all times, viewing cctv monitors, and issuing keys in and out. The management for American Security at that post wasn't very knowledgeable of the rules and regulations of the company and the warehouse. They often did not answer or return calls when needed. The management within the warehouse were slightly strict on the aspects of the job however were able to answer various questions.

Very busy job, great co workers, high turnover rate
Security Officer / Guard (Former Employee) –  Delphi, INJune 12, 2017
Very poor management. Family issues with management and staffing. Manager had a very poor role model figure as far as being punctual, appropriate, professional, and did not follow any labor laws as far as time off, requested time off, raises, promotions. Other than the poor management, I liked the people I worked with and I enjoyed the job. The poor management ruined the entire job.
Pros
Good co workers
Cons
Poor management, little to no breaks, high stress, forced overtime, requested time off was always forgot about and denied

very poor company
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Cayce, SCApril 25, 2017
American Security does not value their employees the way a company should. If you are hurt on the job, they have been known to look for any reason to terminate that persons employment without any compensation and if any money is owed to the employee they will refuse to pay it.

I conducted hourly rounds and provided safety of the facility. I learned how to multitask by working alone with many job duties, management was great, the most enjoyable part was helping others.
