I am a Shift Security Supervisor. Every day I wake up mentally ready for work. My work day always began with greetings from my coworkers and I everyday to start their day. next comes checking the schedule for today's events. theses events usually involve kids, Veterans or events that support the city or state. sometimes I enjoy my job so much that I hate to leave or end the day. I have never worked at a place and enjoyed my job so much. My Manager and I work great together with our team.
We have a great cafeteria with good healthy food to choose from

I enjoyed working with the company. The Supervsior I worked with took care of her people. I am thinking about going back to the company Part-time. Advancment was difficult because you had to know someone to get promoted
Good Group of Co-Workers
No chance for advancement unless you knew someone.

Great Opportunities for Career Advancement. Lots of overtime available. However, there seems to be a revolving door at the company, and each new officer must bring to the job their own motivation and inspiration because the management team can be a bit careless and unfocused at times leaving team members open for workplace apathy. Nonetheless, this is a great starting point for a person who feels his life calling is security work , much valuable experience can be gained here.
Great Opportunities for Career Advancement
Pay Raises needed; Mgmt unfocused at times; inspiration can vasilate.
Scheduling Manager (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 18, 2016
I have enjoyed my almost 10 years with the company as it is a leader in the security industry but I feel that my time within the security field has come to an end. I'm looking for a new career path. My coworkers and managers have been extremely supportive throughout my time with the company. I started as an entry level employee and I'm now one of the managers running the office for the entire state. The hardest part about the job is the time it takes away from your family as the job seems to never have a time where the duties don't become easier. The most enjoyable part about my job is being able to help not only the company with relations with clients/vendors but also being able to help employees advance as well.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – October 16, 2016
There was a lot of work that needed to be done and not enough room for advancement. I had applied for a position at a site that would have been a day shift and they gave it to a brand new person so they don't promote from within. They also state that they do reviews at 30,60, 90 and 1 year none of these were done and no raises.
