Not a job to support family or make a living
Guard (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 28, 2013
Overall, horrid company to work for. I have worked for the company for 5 years and these are my experiences: Never have gotten a raise, work every weekend, holidays, midnights (no family life), was laid off for a year, notified by note by the contracted company I worked for, not Murray Guard (no security) stripped me of my 3 weeks vacation I worked for once took bid back I was laid off from (no respect), medical packages are not affordable, management is very unorganized and on a power trip, no chance for advancement/raises (after 5 years, they told me they couldnt give me a 10 cent raise), wont listen to post problems, took 7 months to get a jacket. When you do take a vacation, you dont get paid when you take it. They pay by your last name. So if your last name is Young, you get paid around Sept. You can take your vacation in June but will be like your calling off sick, no pay. I could go on and on. To be short, you are better off working at Mcdonalds. Murray Guard doesnt pay much better, if not the same, but at least at Mcdonalds you have:flexible schedule, raise and advancement oppurtunities.
this company should be shut down
