I wold give no stars if I could.
Where do I start? Their uniforms are the same color as Otis The Security Guard on Martin TV Series. Quite frankly, most of the workers convey the same comical appearance. – more... I once seen a guard sit on a ledge on Geary Street. One supervisor was actually squared away, but he left in frustration because of the incompetency. I couldn't for the life of me figure this dude out because he wore a duty belt but no weapon. Go figure? Then they had another dude in the East Bay wore a weapon, with no mags and no duty belt. In all honesty, this guy had no business with a weapon because you could have scared him just by saying boo!
The management style is something out of a turn of the century factory during the industrial revolution that is akin to modern day slavery. The workers have little rights in the workplace and the owwner is opposed to unionization. The office is full of hateful-conniving employees, that have a disgusting political agenda, that seem to think they are on a higher plane of existence and that there is some type of hierarchy involved in a security company. They do not seem to know much about running a company, tactics, etc. I once mentioned dynamic entries and they looked at me like a deer staring into headlights. Get a clue. You are working for a guard company. You are not working as a scientist curing cancer. In general, the office staff clearly ingratiate themselves before the owner. For what? Who knows because all of the workers are low-paid and after they have reached their shelf life, the company gets rid of them. They churn a lot of managers and uniformed guards. BTW, most the of guards speak and write little or no English, and I would not let them guard my dog, let alone be entrusted to protect life and property.
Avoid this company as a client or employee. Recommended companies for employment or service, or in the alternative, check with American Society of Industrial Security for credentialed companies and certified employees:
