I liked this company because they placed you in positions that were close to your place of residence as a means of convenience. The hours were flexible and worked well with me being a full time student and a single mother.
Very rewarding job as far as the experiences and the knowledge obtained
Security Supervisor/Officer (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – January 15, 2016
I really enjoy the teamwork and the positive feedback from the fan base of the venues I've worked. The experiences that I have personally experienced will last a lifetime and I feel privileged to be apart of something as awesome the things I've been apart of.I couldn't ask for a better management team as far as keeping employees informed as well as having their back.

Data Entry (Current Employee) – Irwindale, CA – January 13, 2016
always told your going to be given hours but never actually get a full 40. Told your going to be put at certain post but they post you somewhere else. terrible benifits. Not paid enough for everything that we have to do. terrible leadership. Sometimes paid and when you question them about not getting paid they get angry. will change the schedule unexpectly and when you show up they do not want to pay for the time you were there or by law the 4 hour you are required by law to recieve.
Lieutenant/Supervisor Security Officer (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – January 4, 2016
Overall, the job is very easy. It's not a laboring job, and you work with great people. Everyone usually stays on one accord, and we get though the shifts pretty well. Sometimes, there are shortages, call off, etc., but what employer doesn't deal with that.
Security Lead Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – December 22, 2015
I worked for Whelan for 7 years, in that 7 years, I was never granted an opportunity to advance. I applied for a CSM position and was informed that my application was thrown out. I remained a Site Supervisor from 2009-2015 at 1 site, where we could not get any help. The Dallas branch office had what seemed like a monthly complete turnover of the Branch Personell. My site remained short handed for over a year, and Whelan ended up losing the contract.
Working as a security officer with Whelan Security has been a great opportunity to work with an amazing company. I will forever value this experience as I learned what it means to keep a property secure.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Canton, MS – December 9, 2015
Great job but poor management. Equality is unheard of at this place. The managers show favoritism. If a problem arises sure you'll be able to set up a meeting but they don't try to fix the problem, it goes in one ear and out the other.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – December 7, 2015
Whelan security was a security company that I really wanted to grow, I have learned the function of the job in a timely manner. I have good people skills so I dealt with all type of truck drivers ,because I worked at Miller Coors. The hardest part of the job was when the truck drivers load was not ready and the had to wait for hours. I still keep in touch with my co- workers.
Security Officer/ Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 16, 2015
A typical day at my job involves greeting and signing in registered visitors. What I have learned since being employed there is everyone likes to be remembered no matter how short the interaction. My co-workers are more like family. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting people from all over the world.
