Levy was a great company to work for I would say.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 5, 2013
Pros: pay, heath covarge, manager
Cons: sites, six day work week to jst make under 40 hours
My typical day varied due to me going to different work sites with was alsome. I learned that doing security your work day would last forever due to you jst doing alot of watchiong and waiting for somthing to happen. My manager was the best guy to work for he was very easy going guy straight to the point. In security you really dnt get to interact with – more... ur co workers due to one man posts.The hardest part of the day was just waiting on sumthing to happen and the most enjoyable part of the day was getting off due to you feeling like u've been there forever. – less

Post II Officer (Former Employee), ChicagoMay 10, 2013
Great place to work, sad that we lost the contract. Typical work day, first 30 mins are roll call, we talk about what happened the previous day and what is going to happen for the current day and give out post orders. The rest of the day is smooth sailing.

Horrible Comapny
security guard (Former Employee), western suburbsNovember 5, 2012
Pros: the benefits were ok
Cons: they lie and cheat their employees. the worst company ever !!!!!
I used to work for them 2 years ago. This is the worst security company I've ever worked at. The account we were at was downsizing and cutting back due to the bad economy. Instead of laying us off or transferring elsewhere Levy fired several people for made up reasons. One by one they picked us off so we couldn't collect unemployment. I know this for – more... a fact because I kept in touch with one guard and he told me that none of those 4 fired was replaced. They simply eliminated the positions. We were not even allowed back into the building we worked at to collect some of our belongings. When I called my Account Manager he threatened us that if we show up he will call the police. – less

Typical day consisted of running the dispatch center and assisting management team with projects. I learn how to evaluate situations and assist with projects and education. The co-workers are interesting & management team is very laxed. The hardest part of the job was dealing with management and lazy staff. The most enjoyable part of my job was working – more... with other hospital staff on projects and having great employe customer relations. – less

Good working relationships with the workers and clientele in office setting.
Public Safety Officer/Floater (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 3, 2012
Pros: good working, friendly enviroment; good pay and benefits; etc
The overall concept of working for Levy is customer satisfaction and clientele appeasment. Everyone respects each other andare all around friendly, courteous and respectful. The employees are fun to work with and most of them are very professional. The expectation of the Publc Safety Officer is high so that the cient is getting his/her money worth. – more... The only downfall in my particular job is as a floater and the holiday pay that is offered, there is no work for me between Thanksgiving and the second/third month of the year, other than that, it is a good company to work for with good training for advancement and strengthening your knowledge of not only the "Levy" concept but to broaden your own leadership skills. – less
