At Guardsmark a typical day was to sit at a desk in a college dorm. I was not allowed to get up, even for the bathroom, unless I had another person with proper authority take over. Via the Guardsmark employee manual, employees were not allowed any diversionary material, which meant sitting at this desk for 8 hours with most of the time simply sitting in an empty room. Even filling out paperwork would have been an improvement. To top it all off, the promise of "as many hours as I want" only wound up to be about one or two shifts per week. Not because I didn't want more, but because that was all that was available. AND my manager told other employees bad things about my personality before my final shift, even though the man had never spoken to me ONCE.
Horrible, horrible place to be employeed
