Security Guard - Encino (Former Employee), Burbank, CA – May 12, 2013
Pros: paid lunches/breaks, good people
Cons: very low hourly rate
Andrews International has many good jobs available but several of them do not offer you the opportunity to advance and make it a career. I am currently working at Teledyne Scientific and Imaging and the hourly rate is 10.50 an hour for the patrol officers and for the Center Control Officers as well. The only pay advancement is for the supervisor position – more... (16/hr) but there is only one Supervisor. – less
Customer Service/Security Officer (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – April 7, 2013
Pros: good pay, confortable job, non-stressful till the contract situation
Cons: healthcare wasn't that good, too much favoring among supervisors
Started out being a good job and I loved it all the way until we (employee's) started being mistreated in order for Andrews to stop their contract from being lost but, Amazon decided they wanted an out of state security company to come in and take over and now there are about two hundred employee's still trying to find a job and we were only given a – more... five day notice which I felt that Andrews could have avoided, we should have at least been givin a months notice. – less
Officer (Current Employee), Rosemead, CA – February 6, 2013
Pros: co-workers, pay
Cons: management, stressful environment
I enjoy working with my co-workers its fun and diverse. Management is horrible at AI. You need to know people to move up in the company. You can't rely on management to deal with issues accurately and in a timely manner.
Security Guard (Current Employee), New York, NY – January 12, 2013
Pros: friendly co workers, laughs
Cons: health insurance, short breaks, horrible uniforms, no union
Working at the Empire State Building has its perks but overall its a typical day for us security guards majority of the time we have to be observant. We are the first people you see when you enter the building,it pretty much customer service nonetheless. my day consist of working on the second floor metal detection. its pretty much like the airport – more... tourist have to remove their belts, cellphones, cameras anything metallic but wallets and coins. I'm either reading the machine, doing the gates or feeding most of them are pretty nice tourist but you always get a few knuckleheads who want to challenge us but as professionals we keep our cool. the hardest part of the job would be the rudeness we endure and cant do nothing about it and if this is your first job standing on your feet then that i can say would be a challenge.Most my co workers that have come and gone have told me thats the hardest part being on your feet for hours. working with them is great we are like a big family don't get me wrong we have our disagreement here and there and sometime we may bicker but at the end of the day we have each others back. management can be a bit chaotic at times and i feel they don't really care about us at all we do the most and get treated so low which i dislike we work harder than their employees but we get no thank you nothing and that urks my nerves.theres no need to jump over backwards because sadly to say they don't appreciate us. with this job i learned you need a lot of patience and a cool attitude if not you will go crazy. I learned to stop, breathe and smile usually works! – less
Armed Security Guard (Former Employee), Peoria, AZ – January 1, 2013
12 hour shifts mon-fri. I learned excellent people skills, how to have a direct open relationship with management earning letters of recommendations from clients. What i most enjoyed about my last post was being able to defuse incidents without physical content and making work place (high volume of clients) flow consistently with my pressence.
Senior Payroll specialist (Current Employee), Centreville, VA – December 27, 2012
A very knowlegeable manager and cooperative payroll team. The hardest part of the job was the system integration while the company was under the process of acquisition. After the acquisition, when everything got into reguler procedures, it is enjoyable to work every day. I enjoy working on payroll process the most.
Security Officer (Current Employee), Seattle, WA – December 11, 2012
Andrews International is a fast paced, yet fun and welcoming company. Even though the corporate office is in Seattle, WA, I am not posted there for work, the company representatives are kind, helping, and flexible.
