Complete wasted.
Security Officer (part-time) (Former Employee), Memphis, TNMay 11, 2015
Pros: extra income
Cons: waste of one's life
Worked with this company for over a year, just for extra income.
Our supervisor did not care about and and did not answer your phone calls. They treated us like dirt. And after a while they just let all the employee's go.

The Company is good to work for.
Security Guard Officer (Former Employee), Tukwila, WAMay 7, 2015
For the most part we all worked well as a team.
helping each other to get the job done as needed
and covering shifts when someone could not work for some personal reason.
Helping each other creates a pleasant work environment.
I am thankful to the manager for keeping me with a job as they were able for 14 years.

Youth Care Worker- Transporter (Current Employee), Tampa, FLApril 29, 2015
Love the job for it's great benefits. But the job is very challenging, new employees come and go once they have figured out what the job entails. Always in overtime because of being short-staffed.

Terrible work enviroment, union, and management
Armed Security Guard (Former Employee), Radford, VAApril 22, 2015
Pros: Decent Pay
Cons: No breaks. Poor Healthcare, Unpredictable hours and schedules
Go in at a certain time but never know if you will leave on time. Co workers are full of drama. Rules only apply to the ones who are not in with management. Management only cares if positions are fill. not if employees are ok mentally and physically. Management could care less whether you get 8 hours of sleep before next shift. Has no compassion for employees or their families. Benefits were terrible and outrageously priced. The hardest part of the job was staying awake for 8+ hours with nothing to stimulate the brain. No electronics were allowed and even got in trouble for reading at times. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting people who work inside the plant. They tried to make sure the guards were taken care of.

Great Company
Security Officer (Former Employee), Tobaccoville NCApril 22, 2015
I really enjoyed my job just not the fact that I would have to work all 3 shifts. With kids that is very hard to do. I also did not like the fact that it was hard to advance within the company. They would hire outside people instead of promoting from within.

It's Security
Security Guard (Former Employee), Columbia, SCApril 14, 2015
Pros: N/A
Cons: N/A
I wasn't able to remain within the company for long because my position was only temporary (holiday help). So I can't say much other than what I've witnessed and honestly, it wasn't that bad. Plain and simple. Not bad at all. Great place to start if you want to get into the security field.
