easy job,some good people to work with,no chance of advancement,no benefit program.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Oak Ridge, TNNovember 23, 2014
Pros: very easy, likeable people to work with.
Cons: no benefit package.no chance for raises, or advancements.
I worked straight midnight shift.No stress.Mainly your job was walking patrols,both inside and outside.Sometimes you may have to open a door for the plant workers.I also worked in the alarm room where your job was access doors for different patrols to do their patrols.On your patrols,you were checking to make sure all doors were secured.
If alarms go – more... off ,respond to them.Some time there was overtime and you may be called in on whatever shift it might be.
There wasn't any part of the job that was hard.The weekends were the easiest part,with no workers there to open doors for;mainly
just your patrols and report writing of what you did during your shift.
I enjoyed the job and the people I worked with. – less

Armed Security Officer (Current Employee), Camden, AROctober 14, 2014
Pros: when fully staffed it has very flexible work hours
Cons: very rarely fully staffed
Median age is around upper 20s so most have a lot in common and same intests. Most are prior military or police so in a sense very secure feeling. Not much goes on so the security aspect is all but nonexistent. With few exceptions everyone likes it here and rarely calls in

Well paid for a dead end job!
Security Officer (Current Employee), Golden Valley, MNMay 13, 2014
Pros: pay is great!
Cons: horrible benefits and management
Jobs at Pinkerton pay very well, for a security guard job. Other than that the benefits are terrible and expensive. There are no job advancement opportunities and management is poor. It would great for a lazy person with no desire for career advancement.
