Good Workplace but highly stressful or unprofessional at times
Security Officer (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: paid lunch break, always moving, interactions
Cons: unprofessional at times pay issues, depending on supervisor could be fun or stressful
- a typical day would be patrolling my assigned post
- professionalism and sharpness is key
- management is a little iffy, some pay issues over and over
- co-workers dangerous as they do talk alot of iffy things about you
- remembering what to do at ALL times and no hands on situations learn as you go, little help by team, your on your own kinda way – more... , procedures & long hours
- pretty relaxing job by the end of the day after 5pm, depending on your shift may get 3 days off – less

Security Officer (Current Employee), Pensacola,FLSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: great people to work with would do anything for them.
Cons: horrible leadership and lack of concern for people in the field.
Co workers were some of the greatest people I had the pleasure of knowing and working with in this line of work.The Operations Mgr. was something to be desired though.The person did not give a D** about the people in the field or was told by higher ups to stiff employees on Pay.Until this culture changes this company will never grow.The sad part is – more... I am not the only one they siffed on Pay. – less

High turnover rates, poor client relations
Security Guard/Supervisor (Former Employee), Plano, TXSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: easy job that under normal circumstances had little risk.
Cons: client relations were primary concerns, employees disposable.
Anyone could be released at the drop of a hat. The management only looked out for themselves and never once tried to counter the client's brash decisions. Favoritism was not hidden from view. Guards were treated as disposable while supervisors were treated as scapegoats.

Not a career type of employment.
Security Officer (Current Employee), FloridaSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: free uniforms, holiday pay, paid vacation
Cons: very poor supervisory skills, supervisor that don't belong in the position they are currently, poor training to get new officers up to speed for the job requirements
This is not your typical security detailed work. This is a multi tasking or better known as working post. The work is very demanding, the supervisor are little to no help. In order to advance to a shift supervisory role, you either kiss but and/have relatives in ranking positions, yes very nepotistical. Heaven forbid you make a slight human error, you'll – more... never hear the end of it, and if you are flawless; the supervisors will desperately try to find or prefabricate an error.
The client's employees get testy and client management make rules one day, break the rules they made the next day, and will try to label you unable to perform your job duties. – less

Observe and report security, flexible hours and decent start pay
Security Officer (Current Employee), Jenkintown, PASeptember 9, 2014
Everyday you'll perform perimeter, bag and identification card checks. Report any discrepancies on a daily report log and relieve breaks when needed. Shipping and receiving dock counting is site specific. Traffic duties are site specific. Office and building managers or supervisors communicate with security regarding any building issues, obligations – more... or emergencies. Co-workers are culturally diverse, down to earth and of average intelligence. The most difficult part of a day would be communicating with the majority of employees who can barely speak English. The most enjoyable part of a day is having time to yourself in between shift obligations. – less

Always calling but never following up when they are called
Past (open) applicant (Former Employee), FloridaAugust 28, 2014
Pros: they are in the same area
Cons: hiring seems to be unorganized, almost desperate.
Their hiring practices are sporadic and random at times.

Apparently when they need to fill some spots they call you' when you are not home and you return the call you get a message and NO return call.

I assume they just start calling down a list till they get someone. Not what I call a very sound operation. I can imagine what their communications – more... and logistics are like.

After about four times of this I decided they are not the kind of company I need to work for. Sounds like they are what others have told me' a job of convenience. – less
