hardest part of the job is relief officer – more... not showing up for duty. Most enjoyable part was seeing a guard fulfill there work obligations to the client and take action with no delay . – less

Stressful environment with minimal compensation.
Central Station (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAAugust 2, 2014
Pros: health benefits, 401k, as much over time as you want to work
Cons: mandatory on call, 12 hour shifts, constantly called on days off to pick up time, poor pay when compared to stress/expectations of job
Central Station - Pittsburgh

Hands down one of the worst jobs I've ever had. You're not and employee, you're just a body filling a seat. You're taken for granted and treated like an incompetent child by a laughable, self important upper management staff, most of which could not actually function/handle everything a 12 hour shift in this department – more... entails. – less

Admin Support II (Former Employee), Columbia, MDMay 23, 2014
Pros: free lunches on certain holidays, room for advancement, health benefits
Cons: management and how some employees act
A typical day at work was that I came in to do my work, met all deadlines. I have learned the security trade while working for Vector Security. Management tends to favor some employees over the others. Most co-workers were very pleasurable to work with. The hardest part of my job, was completing all paperwork at end of month by a specific day and time – more... and the most enjoyable part of the job was the picnics, parties, birthdays, etc... – less

Pros: positive feedback and freedom to grow.
Cons: salary not competitive in the industry.
I came into the this position as an entry level technician and was able to gain experience trouble shooting many different products and security platforms. Management had a very hands on approach and were always there to assist. The most difficult part of the job was my initial lack of experience. The best part of the job was making progress and getting – more... recognition for performance milestones. – less

Very fun place to work. Management really showed you they appreciated your work. Always had some type of incentative if you picked up extra hours, stayed over late and for coming in on your off day. Co-workers were very friendly and any personal problems in you personal life they were very sensative to your issues. Hardest part for me was I had to leave – more... after my husband died because my children were young. – less
