Life as a Security Officer with Apollo Security
Security Officer (Current Employee), Warwick, NYMarch 12, 2014
Pros: good people, good company. management willing to work with you
Cons: no raises once you hit top pay no matter how long you stay
I have worked with Apollo Security since Nov 2002. They are a good company with many great people. My post for the past almost 3 years has been at a hospital. Being that said a hospital can be a challenging place to work. You are dealing with a multiple of situations. From the highly intoxicated to the Altered Mental Status people. It can be dangerous – more... but as long as you keep your head about you it's fine.
Since there is only one security officer due to cutbacks the hospital has made we rely on each other, the staff and security to maintain a safe environment.
Only faults I have against the company is that once you hit top pay you do not get raises no matter how long have you been there.
If you are looking to become a police officer or something in that field i would say yes that working at Apollo is worth it as you gain some experience. – less

A hostile work environment from supervisors and management
Security Officer (Former Employee), EaganDecember 22, 2013
Pros: corporate environment, good beginner job
Cons: hostile environment, ugly orange clip on ties, high turnover rates
I worked at a site Apollo International was running in Minnesota in 2013. It was my first "security" job, so i did not know what to expect. I found the following aspects of the company to make my life very stressful.
1. One of my managers was always trying to find ways to fire people. He would go above and beyond his job description spying on employees, – more... finding dumb ways to write people up. I almost called human resources about it being a hostile work environment.
2. Turnover was high. In the time I worked there we went through 10 + employees. For a location with under 20 employees total, losing 50% of the employees was ridiculous.
3. Management would give you a promotion only to give it to someone else without telling you. If you could imagine being told your gonna be assist shift supervisor, then find out the next day your not. Unprofessional.

I would avoid this company like the plague. Other companies such as Securitas and American Security have a much better reputation. – less

Great people and easy job
Receptionist (Current Employee), Cambridge, MADecember 1, 2013
The job with Takeda Pharmaceuticals is great. Hardest thing is multitasking. There are times when you have to balance checking in guests, answering the phone as well as checking badges as people walk into the building. It's not a bad job. Gets really quiet in the afternoons and at that time you really just have to answer the phones. Don't really feel – more... like the supervisor communicates things very well. Doesn't seem like the supervisor knows that they are doing all the time. Most of the people who work there are great. Though there does seem to be some ridiculous drama. Felt a little high school-ish. – less

Above Average security assignment
SECURITY AGENT (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJuly 19, 2013
Pros: free coffee, tea, cappuccinos, and expressos.
Cons: often late relief from other security officer.
I was under contract working at Thomson Reuters located in Downtown Philadelphia. The environment was very professional interacting with employees and visitors. My duties were as a security receptionist and the company uniform worn was business attire. This assortment included a blue blazer, black slacks and shoes, and white shirt and tie. A standard – more... work day involved answering light phone calls, making periodic security checks, and monitoring the CCTV cameras. This was the first and only assignment I had. – less
