Pay ok considering competition
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Plymouth, IN – January 2, 2017
Pay is competitive considering most security jobs you find (in this area anyway) are paying a maximum of $9 to $9.50 per hour starting out. The job is relatively simple, although at times you are put into positions that do require you to use physical force and in extreme cases, a taser. Having a calm demeanor and being able to reason with people will greatly benefit you. Management at my job site was handpicked due to a connection in Administration at the job site. The management at the job site also made everything convenient for their time schedule(family, outside activities, school) with little to no regard for other people's schedules. The people not working for Per Mar that you work with on the job site are generally friendly, so the ability to be cordial and friendly will benefit you. Benefits are virtually non-existent. The company just recently added on a major medical plan, but it's also extremely subpar, especially if you have a family. To sum up, the pay is ok, the benefits aren't worth the expense and the management leaves a little bit to be desired. It is a good hold over job until you get yourself into a better job, but nothing more.
Relatively simple job, good co-workers, competitive pay for the work
Lackluster benefits, poor leadership
