Security Officer (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – January 13, 2014
As a Security officer for Yale I was given a great deal of responsibility and flexibility. Every night the position required a four hour foot patrol where doors and windows of the client companies were checked in order to ensure that they were secure and intact. The remaining 4 hours was spent in a mobile patrol monitoring the area for trespassers and responding to alarms. It was an unarmed account where my position required observing and reporting. The best part of the job was the respect and independence the position entailed. The worst part was the overnight and weekend schedule that kept me from my family.
Independant working enviroment, respect, and consistant work schedule.
Working every weekend and permanent overnight schedule.
Great employers with recognition of the need for flexibility
Payroll Administrator (Former Employee) – Belleville, IL – April 24, 2017
Yale Enforcement Services provided an ideal environment with respect and trust placed in their employees. As a member of the corporate team, the longevity of their employees throughout the company was indicative of that respect and trust. As payroll administrator I was responsible for most aspects of payroll which included maintaining a rapport with our guards. In a culture where many of the guards had to depend upon a phone call to resolve any questions or issues, it was important that a guard knew that he could call me and I would take care of any concerns that arose. I took my responsibility to our guards seriously and always followed through with regard to their needs. It was an important realization that if I were in their shoes, I would feel tremendous frustration if I was unable to 'connect' with someone. Although I was doing my job, it was personally satisfying to be able to resolve their concerns.

The management does not seem to care about the employees or their welfare. I was assigned to multiple post that I should not have been working at, and if I could not work when they had call offs they would hold the better post for those they favored.
Been working here 3 months and they've messed up or delayed every single one of my paychecks, which took an entire week for each one to be fixed. I never received my guard card even tho I've done all the applications/fingerprinting and it still says I'm not registered. Phone operator is a rude narcissistic person who is not helpful at all. Management sucks. The pay rate is almost ridiculous for a security guard. Overall, I am so pleased that this company has been taken over by Allied. All the guards here are just fed up, honestly. Most quit within 2-4 months
I have enjoyed my time working for Yale Enforcement Services. I am part of the Armed Hospital Security Division. Working in this type of environment you meet a wide range of people and are introduced to many types of cultures as well. This is a great tool for working security jobs in so many ways. Helps you better understand certain types of citations that can be avoided. Also is a great learning environment and training tool.
Competitive Pay and Great Hours
Health Care Plans are to costly and No Paid Vacations
Security jobs should never be someone's goals this is a great opportunity for experience but the money made isn't worth the time spent. The company has no blame for this poor review, manly my specific job and experience was that I worked too many hours and did many things to help but was never satisfied with the amount of money I was being paid.
This is a company that does not care about their employees. All they care about is making money. The company fails to work with their officers and those who try the hardest end up being the ones who get screwed and passed over for advancement.
I've worked at this company for a couple of years and I love working in the hospital. We have a really great team here. My only complaint would be the lack of benefits. You can get a ton of overtime if you want it.

Try to get a permanent post and do not become a flex officer unless you need a lot of hours and have no social life. You will get 40 hours of work. The job posts can vary from easy to nightmare. It can be normal to go months without speaking to your supervisors. Scheduling can be erratic. The management will bend over backwards to accommodate you but you must return in kind. Overall I enjoy my employment and am grateful to have a flexible and reliable job with this company.
Its a easy going job. I just stand in one spot asking and checking reciepts. When it comes to co workers we are not allowed to chat to each other. Im not allowed to buy anything form the store on duty which kinda dissapointing. On lunch time my only option of eating is Mc donalds. Other than that the Job is ok.
Really nice place to be employed at. You learned how to work well with others and as with just yourself. had a chance to meet a lot of people in the community. Secured parking lot area as customers coming and going out of the facility'
There really isn't much to say. I only worked for a few months then quit. I wanted to see if I could get a better opportunity back home because I knew I wouldn't find a place in time before I had to leave.
