No better than other security employers
Security patrol (Former Employee), Tempe, ArizonaJanuary 7, 2015
Pros: 40 hours per week, paid time off.
Cons: low pay, bad benefits
One account I worked at had the worst manager I had ever worked with in my whole life by a long shot and management at the main office did not care. Several of my co-workers complained about this guy's verbal abuse and management in the office flat out didn't care. I was making a very decent wage at that account, they ended up moving me from that account to another, lowered my wage by over $3.00 per hour, took away my health benefits, and gave me a complete B.S. reason for doing so. To add insult to injury, I was then not given a single raise for over 4 years after my pay was cut, all the while I kept hearing about how Trident was expanding and getting new accounts all of the time.

Advancement is almost impossible aside from being a supervisor at some small account that is not worth the small increase in pay. No one cares about how good of a job you do and how hard you work, upper management would rather hire someone they met off the street in a coffee shop and make them executive vice president (actually happened) then to give you a real promotion for actually working your rear off.

Two accounts I worked at had the most unprofessional account managers who had their "favorites" who could absolutely get away with anything, including not doing their job at all. My reward for actually doing my job, showing up every day and on time, almost always going above and beyond what was expected of me was to get punished for 6 months because I did not answer my phone to come in on my scheduled night off on one occasion and was never on call by any means. I guess just because you have a – more... background in law enforcement, that automatically makes you qualified to run a major account, wrong!

If you are lucky enough to get jury summons, good luck paying your bills since Trident will not pay you for missing work to attend jury duty and they refuse to acknowledge on paper that they do not pay for attending. My most recent manager told me that Trident believes it is our duty as Americans to serve jury duty, but they won't pay their employees to attend.

So in a nutshell, I would recommend working someplace else for people who will actually appreciate you for your hard work and high work ethics if you have any. – less

Too many managers/supervisors/assistant managers
Security Guard (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZJune 14, 2014
Several changes that have not benefited the company or work environment. Many employees resigned and transfered because of the new procedures. I personally resigned mainly because they were not good with work/personal life balance. Asked for a schedule change but was denied since I was the only person willing to work weekend 12hour shifts from afternoon to morning.

Worst Company EVER!!
Security Guard (Current Employee), Tempe, AZApril 7, 2014
Pros: complete school work
Cons: unappreciated, horrible hours, management doesn't listen
I have been working for this company for years, and let me say this is the worst job I have ever had. Period. I am only employed here so I can finish up my schooling. As a veteran of the US military, I deserve to be treated with respect at this job. Every security guard here deserves to be treated that way. The site managers claim they care, but they are full of themselves. No room for advancement and HR doesn't want to hear from you if you have a problem that needs to get fixed. Management cares so much about their own pockets that they forget that the people who work for them, these hard working people, have families. They are attending school full time and working full time to support their families but do they care? Nahhhhh. Let's make them work 60 hours a week so they can't spend time with their loved ones because they do not know how to hire help! I am not the only one that thinks this. I just have the balls to finally let it out. This company needs to be grateful for the people they have because without us, there is no them. S**t needs to change.

That's all I am going to say about that.

A Great Comapny
Security Guard Officer (Former Employee), Tempe, AZMarch 20, 2014
Pros: good hours, nice people
Cons: no real health benefits
I had a really great time working here, unfortunately, it's not a job for sensitive people like me. It's more for stronger types, who can handle people when they get unruly. I enjoyed the hours, people and the patrols weren't so bad. The most difficult part of the job was just staying awake most of the time.

BY FAR THE WORST SECURITY COMPANY I'VE WORKED
security guard (Former Employee), tempe, ArizonaNovember 15, 2013
Pros: none brutal
Cons: management and human resources
This COMPANY is an absolute joke. The management and the human resources people are beyond terrible. They hired me I told them I only work certain hours. So they gave me part time work for 2 weeks. I asked for fulltime. After the 2 weeks I called left several messages with brandy and human resources. They never even bothered to call me back. This place stinks everything about it. Thanks for wasting my time.

Fine place to work, but no upwards mobility
Security Guard (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZSeptember 14, 2013
The people I worked with at my site were a good group of people and things ran smoothly. However, there was no realistic upwards mobility and the hours kept me from having any social life.

A good place to work
Security Officer (Current Employee), Tempe, AZMarch 24, 2013
Pros: i bring my own lunch.
Cons: good health care and dental
I pretty much perform a patrol of the interior and exterior of the building and the parking garage every hour, and i monitor the main lobby and the courtyard from the security desk for trespssers on the property. Provide customer service to employees for the various buisnesses in the building. I have the best coworkers in the world friendly and willing to help when in need. The most thing that i enjoy about my job is that the challange of not letting anything happend on my watch and making sure that i keep accuate accounts of events that happen good or bad in my SAR and incident reports that i have to right when somethig bad happens i love that challenge. The managment is great they work with me on any issues that i have.

Hopeless
Security Officer (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZNovember 7, 2012
Cons: ever changing management.
This place looks at you as nothing more than a Guard Card number. The main office refuses to return any employees call. Their is a popularity clique.

Witch hunts for employees are common. Values are in complete disarray. Avoid this place at all costs.

Average Security Company
Security Officer (Former Employee), North Charleston, SCAugust 16, 2012
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: break times non existent
Security is a cut throat business. With Trident I had job security. The pay wasn't great and the management was okay, but they warn you of that before hand. They always worked with me, and helped me out during hard times. They are worth working for.

Great People equals a great Company
Site Security Manager (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZJune 20, 2012
Trident has established itself apart from other contract security companies in Arizona. They have an outstanding management team which is in turn supported by an equally outstanding ownership. It's rare to find people who back up their words with actions. Trident does exactly that.
