Account Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – December 15, 2017
So, contract security isn't the best job to begin with.
I started with Securitas when they took over an account from my previous employer. My pay rate was the same, which was fine, but for single coverage (me only) high deductible (low monthly premium) I was paying $375/month.
Eating about 8% of my pay rate (which was above average for my position, but only because the client had requested it) was too much to handle.
In the 14 months I worked there, the client's account was fully staffed less than half the time - so lots of extra hours, which is no when you're salary.
No paid time off for the first year you're there - which is standard for the industry. One week after one year, two weeks after 3 years, 3 weeks after 5 years.
Easy job to get, could work with about anyone's schedule
Staffing issues, benefits are too expensive for the rate of pay that is offered.
Guard (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – December 15, 2017
Securitas has horrible management. If you aren't a supervisor, you're just another body to them. They don't care what you have to say. Rules are strict until management doesn't need to follow them, then it's fine for them and only them to break the rules and regulations.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – December 15, 2017
The company here in the city (i'm not sure about suburbs and rural areas since those are a lot easy to handle) is either under performed or over performed and exhausted staff, if their good. Road Supervisor Managers (responsible for many many sites) get replaced almost every 3 months either through getting fired or quitting, normal staff tries to do the least as possible when it comes to working, higher elevation of status or pay takes a long while even if you float a lot.
Large company more easier to get called for extra hours
A grand majority of Managers can't seem to keep their jobs or be enforced to do their jobs right
Site supervisor (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – December 15, 2017
The company is very big and they has many locations. you are able to move around as needed to fit whats best for you.every location is different and you can get what you need from the company whatever you need.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Maryland Heights, MO – December 14, 2017
This company is constantly hiring but somehow never has good help or proper training. The officers need to adjust in their posts as people change and the other end some officers could work closer to where they live would helps in the long run. Further more I would suggest anyone entering this company to obtain a stronger salary versus what was given to me.
I been working for Securitas for 6 years. At first the pay wasn't all that good!!! but now we have better relations with the management (by the way the management and human resource is awesome) and the pay went up i am proud to be a employee of Securitas.
Security Officer (Contractor) (Current Employee) – Annandale, VA – December 14, 2017
A typical day for me at work is productive and exciting, the workers are friendly and nice, our management there are really fair as well. The most enjoyable part for me at work is when i'm helping people and putting smiles on there faces.
A typical day at work was relaxed. The management is horrible because they did not like to work and did not understand that emergencies happen. The hardest part of my job is staying awake but I have adjusted to the overnight. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting paid.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Lowell, AR – December 13, 2017
If your the kinda person looking for a security job, this isn't it. I'm 19yrs old, I have my own place and I live by myself. This job will not always give you what you want. Meaning the hours you need so you can pay the bills. But yes it's great to be a security officer, just not for this company.
Easy work if you follow instruction but the pay is low.
Concierge/ Security Shift Lead (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – December 13, 2017
This was my first job after moving to Austin and they were able to work with me so I could get onto my feet. Overall it has been a positive learning experience. It changes by site but the two sites I have worked at the longest they treat the employees well, just wish the pay was higher for the area that I live.
