Good job for full time student, less chance for advancement
SECURITY OFFICER (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 15, 2016
In a typical day, depending on building assigned/working in, a day can be pretty relaxing or very hectic. You monitor the CCTV and CBORD and make sure no one is trespassing or committing any policy violations. I was CSO trained, first aid trained, and FEMA trained. I learned to write reports from incidents. I work well under pressure so in situations where I have to make a lot of decisions quickly and corrected while keeping a calm demeanor, I excelled. I enjoyed my coworkers and majority of my upper management. It is kind of hard to advance because there are approximately 200 security officers but only 5 lead security officer positions. When I started there was a lead officer position for each building that was competitive, but the structure of the job has changed tremendously since then. If I could advance to a lead security officer positions, I would do so!
Many different coworkers, Good management
Many different coworkers, poor pay
