A good company to get your foot in the door to the security industry
PUBLIC SAFTEY OFFICER (ACTING SUPERVISOR) (Former Employee), Kingston, MA – July 17, 2015
A good company to get your foot in the door to the security industry but no real advancement opportunities. The wage is for to low for the work and expected results, barely above minimum wage. Health and dental benefits are good and was a good work environment.
Security Guard (Former Employee), Honolulu, Hawaii – June 28, 2015
Pros: I had good team work with fellow co-workers, and most of them were a happy bunch.
Cons: The Director has no knowledge of the work enviroment.
Working for IPC was a learning center. I worked in the shopping center and experience the many problems that can occur in any public place. Procedures differed from company to company as I was employed – more... by another security company in the same location. Things depended on the Director, and it showed by the quality of the work production. My Supervisors were helpful when needed, and most of my co-workers had good work ethics. This made things easier to deal with. The hardest part of this job was working with the employees with no ethics, and the supervisors knew who they were but didn't do anything about it. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the rest of the team due to good ethics. Also I was able to get to know a lot of the commercial clients and help them throughout the years. – less
Second Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – June 7, 2015
Dealing with shoplifters and customer issues, being able to think on my feet, and react to a situation without hesitation. I learned my capabilities as a leader being able to direct my team in a fashion – more... that would solve any situation that we came across. I learned how to change our policies with little to no notice to meet Mall managements needs/wants. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with my team and ensuring that we all made it home safely. – less
Educational and driven training makes great employees and coworkers.
Security Dispatcher (Former Employee), Mission Viejo – April 24, 2015
IPC International gave me my start in Security and trained me to be more alert and prepared to respond to anything. I owe this company much of my preliminary experiences and those of the superiors who trained me in the years that followed.
Public Safety Officer (Former Employee), Sacramento, CA – April 14, 2015
Cons: Lack of officers
Customer Services greatly improved and great coworkers. Patrolled parking lots and foot patrol within the mall. Management kept all equipment and vehicles properly maintained. Hardest part of the job was all the patrons and not enough officers. Also, during Christmas time very dangerous directing traffic. Most enjoyable were working with my co workers.
IPC suited the purpose for me while a college student they allowed me the flexibility to work an evolving shift. However, there was not enough salary increase to support a growing family. I had to work – more... overtime to make a decent living. This made for a difficult work/life balance. My supervisors and fellow employees were respectable and gave me the opportunity to grow in a supervisory capacity, however, my field of study was law and I needed to follow that career path. – less
Assistant Director of Security (Former Employee), Tulsa, OK – March 19, 2015
Pros: interacting with different people everyday
Cons: no cons
I was the Assistant Director of Security and I loved every moment of it. I was able to make friends with all of the store managers in this one million two hundred thousand square foot mall. The managers – more... of all of the stores trusted me and knew I had there backs in time of need. We had a great repour. I had 19 employees that i guided everyday and we were a perfect team. They trusted me and I them. We went to emergencies when people would fall, we went to fights that would break out,from time to time, and we went to robberies or thefts when one would occur. It was important to be on the same page and be a team. The hardest part of that job was leaving. The most enjoyable part of that job was showing up everyday. – less
Public Safety Officer (Former Employee), baltimore MD – March 14, 2015
Pros: exposed to great downtown city life and meet alot of different people daily
Cons: management didn't provide clean uniforms when needed, lack of communication from management to employees about important situations.
typical day at work would consist of making sure that tenets were satisfied. dealing with deliveries on a day to day basis to the restaurants located next to my post. sometimes having to remove customers – more... from some of the restaurants that pose a treat or disturbance to others. Preforming hourly rounds of property making sure that building that are suppose to be secure are secure and remained secure throughout my shift unless informed other wise. – less
