Not a good place to work!
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MI 48226March 11, 2017
Typical Work Day: Punching the time clock, changing into my uniform, heading out to my post to relieve that officer, and interacting with other employees, vendors and contractors.

Management: Very untrustworthy management team. At times they would yell and scream. Very unprofessional place to work.

What I Learned: Training programs were very helpful...combat gun training, report writing, communication, First Aid, CPR, AED, and Incident Command Center Training.

Workplace Culture: Culture Diversity Training

Enjoyable Part Of Job: The co workers I worked with on my midnight shift.

Hardest Part of Job: Having to deal with an unprofessional management team.
Pros
There were some good officers I worked with.
Cons
Management, supervisors, and lazy co workers!

I made less than the Team Leader I supervised for years at the City of Detroit, and when we transferred to Great Lakes Water Authority, I was told I would be made whole and it never happened.
Pros
Great Compensation for those who are liked
