Very good managers
Security Officer (Former Employee), Lubbock, TXJune 22, 2015
A typical work day was 12-14 hours.
Managers called you all the time for overtime.
Don't really work with anyone.
I liked the hours, I only worked 3 days a week with 40 hours.

Okay Job
Security Guard Officer (Former Employee), Memphis, TNJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: no free lunches ever.
Cons: we had a 30 min lunch.
This job was cool, all we had to do was watch for thief. I wish this job would have last longer then it did. Someone stole my identity at the time so I lost the job. I would have stayed for years if that did not happen. I am happy I had another job at the time or I would have been broke.

Productive and challenging working in the warehouse workforce.
Armed officer (Former Employee), Memphis, TnAugust 17, 2014
A typical day at work exemplifies working with co-workers attitudes for that day, responsible for the daily activity, by placing the right person on the right post assignment. The hardest part of the day is clearing clients through metal detector. The most enjoyable part of the day when all post assignments are done with no complaints.

Not for everybody
Security Guard/ Officer (Former Employee), Memphis, TNAugust 6, 2014
This kind of job isn't for everybody. I'm used to working in fast moving environments, so to go from being busy all shift to doing nothing all shift wasn't something I enjoyed.

It is an ok place to work
SECURITY OFFICER (Former Employee), Memphis, TNJune 2, 2014
A typical day was a good one, management was ok but they were bouncing me from one supervisor to another but I enjoyed it because I could meet different people and talk to them. Co-workers were ok and there was no hard part and the most enjoyable part was that most of the time I spent my time on the job without anyone bothering me.

Management only cares about money.
Site Supevisor (Former Employee), Memphis, TnJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: good coworkers and some clients
Cons: management knows nothing about security and benifits
Management only cares about thier bonuses and money. They do not care about thier employees or customers. The office hires managers that do not have any knowledge in security. Do not work for this company or give them any business....

Security Officer (Current Employee), Memphis, TNOctober 26, 2013
Pros: learning how to deal with people from all walks of life
Cons: meeting people whom refuses to do the right things
Company use to be ok to work for. awe now have a supervisor that thinks no one is correct but him. When a problem arises an you think you have it under control, he comes out an try t talk to you like you are a child. He wants to write you up for any little thing an instead of talking to you he discuss you behind your back with other employees. he,s arrangant, an unprofessional. I love my co-workers. They are the best. I've learned how to handle a different variety of people with different attitudes. the hardest part is when you get a person that feel that they dont't want to be asked to do something like move from fire lanes. I enjoy meeting an befriending all types of people. I am a people person.
