Not for those whom need Structure
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  MassachusettsJuly 13, 2016
Be careful and listen to the wages offered for sites before you agree to interview a site. Make sure to have everything in addition to what they give you. The company is pretty much a 50 / 50 split.Some people work and others are just warm bodies. You will have little to no guidance a side from your direct supervisor and co workers. If you do poorly they just move you to another site rather than let you go, but your on your own till then.
Pros
easy money if you show up. If your lazy you will have a job non the less
Cons
worth ethic is as pointless and banging your head into a wall

Security Officer/Front Desk (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAJune 15, 2016
Being the first face of the building for customers and employees that walk in the door and being the last work related face they see when leaving work brings many opportunities to make a person's day with simple friendly communication.

A learning exprance
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Newton, MAApril 26, 2016
In my opinion the company was good for experience. This company offered no room to excel and management was not as professional as they should have been. I did how ever learn some things from this job and gained experience. The hardest part of the job would be that there was not opportunity to grow.
Cons
no room to advance

General Manager (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCDecember 8, 2015
Great company to work with and far. The industry is suffering from the economy. Also have had a lot of new competition to open up in the market area. Making it hard to recruit/ hire/ train and maintain sales staff.

Account Manager of Security for Draft Kings (Current Employee) –  Boston, MADecember 7, 2015
Overseeing managerial duties at Draft Kings is challenging, but I wouldn't want it any other way. Being a sports driven company, it is a very fun, charismatic and competitive work environment. I have grown mentally and am preparing myself to take on even greater responsibility and growth in my career path.

Non productive work environments
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Newton, MAJuly 30, 2015
NorthEast is not a company that offers great room for growth or advancement within the company. Management at physical locations is seriously lacking. Northeast does not allow for a good work life balance at all. The company does not care if you have family or health struggles only that you can come to work. During the past winter I was asked on several occasions to spend multiple nights at my location during extreme weather conditions and my job was threatened if I did not comply I am a single mother of a toddler and did not see how this could be legal!.
Pros
good hourly compensation
Cons
no work life balance, no job security
