Very uncoordinated place to work
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Manchester, TNAugust 15, 2017
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.
Cons
no breaks or lunches

I just started here
Unarmed Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 3, 2017
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.
Pros
good managers, free snacks, clearly defined expectations, nice pay
Cons
long shifts, long nights

Fulfilling company to work for
Manager (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJuly 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.
Pros
Good balance in work life and officer appreciation
Cons
Challenging area to work in

Okay company under bad management.
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Lake Charles, LAJuly 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.
Pros
401k, insurance, 1 week PTO after a year of working.
Cons
No breaks, bad management.

Depends on your Management
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  TennesseeJuly 5, 2017
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.
Pros
Flexibilty, stabiltiy
Cons
Pay Rate, Management

If you do your job this is where you want to be!
Site Supervisor (Current Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLJuly 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.
Pros
Upward mobility, helping people, flexible schedules, solid private company been in business 50 years
Cons
Sometimes you have difficult clients, people dont always respect your position

Overall best Company to work for
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLJune 29, 2017
Weiser Security is by far the better choice. Whether you're just starting out or a seasoned professional this company will stand by you, give support and provide solutions when you have a reasonable request or situation. They truly know who you are as a person, compared to just being a number. 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.
Pros
Managers always available to express your concerns
Cons
They want you to be on time for work and smile. :-)

Employee Engagement at Its Finest
Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJune 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 !
Pros
Employee engagement, upward promotional opportunities, fun working environment, support services

Under Paid
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAMay 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.
Pros
Co Workers who have your back, good security management
Cons
Low pay, short staff, no raises, no evaluations, no benefits

Good growing company
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 10, 2017
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.
