Risky employer.
Security Officer (Current Employee), Denver, CONovember 25, 2014
Pros: what?
Cons: unfriendly and unpredictable office; cuts hours unexpectedly.
This isn't a nice office of people compared to other security companies I've worked for. Here you have a bad boss who rarely communicates nicely and shows no appreciation only when he needs someone to fill a vacant shift. Mostly, he's in a mood you don't want to deal with. There is no human resources and you hardly ever see anybody but "the boss". This company cut my pay by .25 cents in 2011 and have no problem cutting your hours to this day no matter how long you've been with the company. When you ask about why they were cut, he screams at you! Also, this employer takes on security projects far from your home and makes you drive many miles to get there. This security company is in the business of sub-par employee treatment for what they pay. It's horrible! You would have to take this job just to see how bad it can be. Conditions are unpredictable and can almost ruin your work day.

Easy place to work but management is not up to par
Security Guard (Former Employee), Denver, COSeptember 8, 2014
Typical day at work consist of me guarding a post/site

I learned how security works

Management could be a lot better communication is a big problem.

Didn't have co-workers

The hardest part of the job is dealing with all the miscommunication

The most enjoyable part of the job is traveling to different parts of the city to guard post.

Officer (Current Employee), Mankato, Coon Rapids, RochesterJune 9, 2013
I have been working with this company for 5 years, it takes place at night, therefore the hours would not cross with the job which I have just applied for. I feel the job is not difficult at all, as long as you keep up to date on the trainings and take your role seriously.

Twin City sucks
Security (Former Employee), MilwaukeeMay 23, 2013
Pros: coworkers were fun
Cons: the pay was a slap in the face
Everyday there was always a new problem with Twin City Security and I learned absolutely nothing while working for them. Management was very unprofessional with the attitudes, arguing with employees, showing so much favoritism, coming in when they felt like it and having there kids on the job cursing their little friends out on the telephone. The hardest part of my job was working for little to nothing I wound up getting evicted from my apt. because of them. Twin City thinks they know how to do everything when really they don't mark my words NEVER let Twin City Security fix your car they will only make it worse and still take money out of your checks.

Not a good company to work for.
General Manager/Operations Manager (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOMarch 19, 2013
If you are not a minority you do not have any job security. Pay is small for the amount of work your are required to do. The owner is very arrogant. I suggest everyone to stay away from this company.
