Officer (Current Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – July 16, 2016
Its not a bad place to work but there isn't any ability to advance in either pay or rank. You walk rounds, check employee badges in a typical day. Management isnt to bad since they work with you say you need extra days off you get them and they help you make up missed hours.
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, Ga – October 16, 2014
They take up all of your personal time including the weekend. Your vehicle will take a complete beating yet they only pay .44 cents per mile and the mileage that their computer calculates is never correct. They continuously change the pay structure. Each office is on the buddy/buddy system. If you get in good with the branch manager, you'll get better jobs. The Regional Director has no backbone. You will go to him about things you see that are not right nor fair to employees and give him proof and he still sweeps it under the rug
free breakfast once a week, salary can get towards $100k but you will never be at home
long working hours, help other techs all the time but dont get paid for it, constant switching of jobs
Armed Security Guard, CAT III Nuclear Sight (Current Employee) – South Carolina – December 23, 2013
Although the organization provides a quality initial training program, the organization follows a stagnant business culture, poor management practices and provides absolutely no opportunities for employees to personally progress within the company.
This small security division does not provide any benefit packages, retirement or medical insurances with the exception of a shoddy dental plan. Promotions are given solely based on immediately available positions from the incredible employee turn over rate, and they only go to individuals that meet a certain criteria which does not follow most EO practices.

packer (Former Employee) – charlotte,nc – April 28, 2015
A Typical day at work is to get there get in and get my day started im always earlyer. I learn sometimes you have to take things as they are workplace your have different personality. Alwalys be the bigger person because the picture is far to big the picture i see.Some people far as co workers at times feel the need to talk bout one another or do things with me all i wanna do is come into work with a smile and do my job at my best and make sure the costomer is happy.To me the hardest thing can be alot of things thats part of a job to me which i do not mind just have to work thought it. The most enjoyable part of a job when your good work or addtitude is seen or when a costomer really love what you did or said to them make me really like i did somthing good or right.

A day at work at defender i would come in 30 min before time sit and chat a bit with some co workers eat breakfast,lunch etc. Do that for a bit till the last 10 mins of the 30 mins i got there.I would go to my line an the guy from the last shift would leave an from there on my shift would start.Now the worst part of this whole thing is the tires come constantly no breaks for the first two hours so it best you brang gatorade or some to you line but you would sort for 12 hours the best thing is the break this is in the break room you eat smoke drank talk whatever it is you do on break now mind you,you only get four of these every two hours so this is somewhat hard i guess.But the best thing is you meet new people and they all doin the same as you an on breaks yall switch lines.
Payroll Clerk/ Customer Service Rep./ Clerical (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, NC – August 8, 2013
Had a great boss but he died of cancer while I worked there. I really enjoyed working with the employees there . Payroll were awesome. They gave classes on goldcolor and that made the payroll much easier. Enjoyed working there. The most difficult moment were making sure the employees clocked out while doing payroll for the week. This were because you had to get up with the employees to make sure they got paid correctly. It were hard trying to get up with some of them before passing in their paid hours.
free lunch at times

When bees fly from flower to flower, the nectar sticks to their legs. The phrase "bee's knees" means sweet and good, because the knees of the bee are where all the sweet, good stuff is collected. When you work at DEFENDER, you're knee deep in a culture that develops leaders and encourages you to be the best version of yourself possible.
cool culture, super people, protecting families.
opportunities for taking better care of security advisors.
