Unarmed Security guard (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 1, 2016
From my experience there, just getting my foot in the door was a great start. A typical day at work was good enough where just getting through the day was an advantage. It helped me develop a stronger point of workmanship and character. I enjoyed working there, although every job has it perks and flaws. I am just now seeking some better opportunities.
great teamwork, communication, and respectful environment
School Crossing Guard (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – June 22, 2016
A typical day started @ seven am in the morning and ended @ eight thirty am. Then you went home until two in the afternoon, you returned and stayed until three thirty in the evening. The hardest part of the job was standing out in the elements in the mornings and in the evenings, especially when you are from the south (Ga.). The most enjoyable part of the job was the children and the friendly neighbors and the passing motorist.

Security guard at a local college dorm. I enjoy interacting with the students. I enjoyed my supervisor and have learned a lot from her. The worst part of my job is being here alone at night, it's too quiet.

My Day at work is exciting & motivating meeting many people that work around the surroundings and more. I've Learned that it takes dedication and hard work to meet our clients needs and to make sure they are protected and happy, Management was great, they can be really good and mostly down to earth but all is well. My co-workers are willing to learn as much as i have & more up to meeting tasks and getting the job done no questions. The hardest part of the job is dealing with people that really have attentions of hurting you and trying to comply with manners and they continue to proceed but i got the hang of things. I enjoy helping others and being a part of there life's this has always been the thing i enjoy the most and i'm good at it there's nothing else that makes me happy.

Twin city is a some what decent place to work for a person who is starting in the security field. I began to enjoy the job when I began employment but as time passed I felt as the employers wasn't trying to be fair.

I love my job but I work 24/7, I do the hiring and firing. Train new hires and place them in the job field. Do all scheduling and pay roll. I also work out in the field like other officers. On average I work 80+ hours a week between the two.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Columbiana, AL – July 8, 2015
I enjoyed my assignment but management for Twin City was HORRIBLE. They couldn't keep staff. Manager was always in a bad mood and I don't like mess and the manager was always in some mess that was going on at Twin City.

A typical day "at work" means arriving at the assigned intersection/corner at least five minutes early. The job is this:You wait for an opening in traffic, put up your sign and wait until traffic stops before allowing the children (kids) to enter the street (That's how it's ideally suppose to go!). On most days, you see the same kids and parents every day, and I have known some of the parents by first name.. After all, YOU are charged with the safety of their kids and most parents place a high value on your service. The schools also places a high value on your work and I work with willing schools and safety cadets they provide.
Well, the hardest part of the job is the weather here in Wisconsin and I have been out in very unpleasant weather conditions. When school is not canceled one is expected to be out at the assigned intersection. Just dress for it!
The nicest part of the job is spring toward summer when the kids will be getting out of school. Another nice time of the year is the first day of school in September and the excitement for parents, as well as young kids from whom it's their very first day of kindergarten. Priceless - as the credit card ad goes!
The management is good to good employees, and at the annual crossing guard meetings in August they will put on a little party and acknowledge your good work. When I was sick with a horrible flu last October (and under doctor's care), they were empathetic about my illness and willing to let me fully recover. I gave them regular updates about my illness, as I felt it was my responsibility to let them know aboutmore... my condition. I think the company is a good company to work for, it's a family-run, security company that provides largely security guard services, but from my view its a good to it's crossing guards.
The job of crossing guard at Twin City is a good job for a homemaker or retired person, it can be very rewarding, but I have an education and job skills and would like to move on to a place where I can utilized them.less
Good management, able to work independently, work outside
