Good job. Easy. Get what you pay for. Not a bad job. I like the flexibility. You can get overtime. Thats a plus. Good sites. Management is easy to get in contact with. Pay could be better. But hey dont do that much hard labor for the pay. If you dont have a criminal record get a security class d license get a security job. Awesome easy gig.
They care more about the employees that make the company look bad and not about the employees that make the company look good. The management sucks. They don't know how to treat their employees. The pay is terrible and they should be ashamed of how much they pay.

Management is terrible, does not take care of issues, ignores just about all requests, disrespectful, unprofessional, does not properly train supervisors etc. Also bad pay for the most part, pays less then most companies do
This is a good company. It is a healthy field for the mind and body. The pay is sustainable and you can work for more than one security company. The field of security is some what not secure because your company may lose the contract with the business putting you on a different schedule because you or another employee was not doing their job. You can move up within a year of good service but that position is a hassle more than a blessing. Don't take anything less than 9.50 for your work but do it if you have to and always be prepared to work a second job. This is America and most people are truckers. Look to security for your customer service skills.
No direction. No training and no opportunities for a raise

This was by far the most unprofessional job ive ever had. There was no training, you basically get told to show up to a site and figure it out on your own. Supervisors never stood up for the employees and we were told to do numerous things that werent agreed to on the contract. If youre looking for a job stay away from this company in the birmingham area.
Not enough employees, the lowest paying security company and no chance to move up.

This company is an absolute joke to the security field. The Durham NC branch is full of under knowledged idiots. If you are serious about security I highly highly recommend you run away fast from this company. Absolutely zero structure, when I started I asked the captain about a BOLO I seen......the idiot didn't even know what that was. I don't have enough time to even begin to tell you what a horrible company this is. Applicant beware !!!!!!
Worst Company I have ever worked for PERIOD.Weiser Security Services in Charlotte,NC.Nobody in the Charlotte office seems to know,or even care for that matter,if employees are paid the wages due them. They have owed me a days pay ever since Dec.30,2015! After contacting them several times and showing them the PROOF (ie copies of time sheets and ck.stubs) they just keep telling me they are going to pay me, but it hasen't happened.That's 4 months(as of today)and still trying to get that one 8 hrs. pay. BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!

This company advertises management positions but when you get there, they will tell you that the job is already filled but they do have this undesirable, 3rd shift, low paying position available. Don't fall for the "Operations Manager" or "Field Manager" tag lines in the job advertisements.
Worked steadily so day or night shift passed quickly. Learned more computer skills. I worked 3rd shift so I had almosr no contact with management. Did however see many memos from management with new instructions and always ending with: those who do not comply will be terminated immediately. I worked alone so had contact with other guards for a minute when changing shifts. Hardest part of job is dealing with people you have to refuse entry to because they are always mad. Best part of job was meeting many very nice people.

This location at Von's Milk and Bread plant in Commerce is really chill. Big guard shack with fridge and microwave. Most important, All the workers were pretty chill just didnt get enough money for all the work.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – NC – September 17, 2015
Most days depending on the site its mostly just letting people on and off the property, ie they show their ID and or I make sure I track what I need to from trucks by taking down information on the trucks and containers that come in and or trucks will have trailers that I have to check out. The company has some respectable people to work for and very understanding and they use a surprising amount of good ole horse sense. I like work for these guys because the people I work for allow me to use my ability to think and make decisions. If you want to work the management dose its best to make sure that if they are able they will offer it to you.
the abality to work bymyself i.e. I like the trust they have in me.
Very bad pay. Management is a joke.This is the Geismar area which Baton Rouge control.New Orleans has the branch office which is no better so many complaints have went to them and nothing gets resolved.They all is a joke so please stayaway
