Working a third shift a typical day at work would be slow as company employees are at work and no movement at the first half are inside until shift change at 12 midnight high traffic and workplace movement. The hardest part of the job is the company equipment malfunction often and heater and air condition or the length off post to rest rooms. I enjoy working for the company no serious complaints.
Management never knows what is really going on with our job duties. There is no room for growth in the company. The management can not agree on solutions or duties and constantly contradict each other.
The work varies from post to post, but I think my boss did a good job matching me with a post i'd like. It took me a few weeks to get used to night shift, but now I really like it. I am enjoying my job a lot, and take immense satisfaction in protecting both the people and the products. I have finally found my calling.
good managers, free snacks, clearly defined expectations, nice pay
Manager (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – July 17, 2017
I have worked for other security companies large and small and this by far has been the best. They really strive for managers to appreciate and demonstrate gratitude to the officers for a job well done. If you want to work in security whether experienced or not they will give you the training necessary to be successful but it's up to the individual to put forth the effort and succeed.
Good balance in work life and officer appreciation
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – July 11, 2017
The company itself is okay but the local management did not handle things effectively. The insurance that is offered is not very good but will cover you from getting fined at the end of the year by IRS. There is not much opportunity for advancement as all of the people in positions of leadership are sort of tenured in. The pay for this company is probably the lowest of all security jobs in the area.
401k, insurance, 1 week PTO after a year of working.

Depending on who you are assigned will determine how your experience pans out. Worked with several different branches and several different account managers on different levels. Had some truly outstanding people and some that would not be truthful if their life depended on it.
Site Supervisor (Current Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – July 1, 2017
This company truly cares about it's employees. It offers its employees every benefit available and even gives every employee a Christmas bonus regardless how long you have been with the company. Of course you are probably not going to get wealthy as a security officer but it pays higher than minimum wage and if you work hard, make yourself available, follow post orders, take pride in your appearance and provide excellent customer service you will move up very quickly. if this is going to be a career get into the management side, its very difficult, long hours and constant problem solving but the sacrifice pays off when you're Branch Manager one day making six figures.

They will give you a chance to succeed and offer advice when your in the gray area caught between the rule and the exception to the rule. Weiser West Palm doesn't pretend to be perfect, that's why they stand above the rest.

Multiple sites to chose from. Flexible hours. Part time and/or full time schedule. Friendly and professional management staff. Site supervisors are chosen from their ability to perform well as leaders to maintain a safe and stable environment for their security officers. Payroll is steady and on time. Overall, Weiser Security Service Inc. is a great company to work for.
Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – June 27, 2017
Most security companies miss the point. Weiser does not, they recognize that employees make them successful. They use the 5R's of employee engagement that keeps the officers matched to the right post, and have full expectations before they ever report to the post. Rewards and recognition are paramount. Come Join the W !

Security Guard (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – May 27, 2017
A typical work day at my permanent post is fairly easy when the clients are following rules, however it can be a hassle sometimes as well when working other sites. The pay is not great at all for some of the work you are required to do. It is under staffed daily though. For a 7 floor site, you may have 1 or 2 guards securing all floors and other nights you may have 2 to 4 guards. The security management is great to work for, however the site managements are not so easy to work with or for. I have learned to watch my back as well as my co workers backs cause not everything is what it seems. So far I have been with the company for over 6 months and haven't been evaluated for a raise or anything for that matter. The hardest part of the job is when your short handed and your required to do everything on your own. The most enjoyable part of the job is having co workers who will back you up no matter what is going on if you happen to be working together on particular days and management is always willing to work with you if they can.
Co Workers who have your back, good security management
Low pay, short staff, no raises, no evaluations, no benefits

• This was a new plant, I was there to install ,start up all electrical, equipment, including the beginning of the paper operation.machine, air handler, and all start ups.including all Automatic controls..
Good company with stable history. Work assignment were consistent and there was good supervisor support. Supervisors were changed frequently on the worksite that I was stationed at but believe this wasn't the norm.
