A lot depends on the individual assignment.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 17, 2018
My time with Allied Universal Security (before the merge Universal Protection Service) has varied based on the assignment. Each assignment has its pros & cons. I have had assignments in which I patrolled a lot in a vehicle, patrolled various facilities constantly walking and sat at a desk answering phone calls and monitoring cctv.
I've had assignments in which I have been fairly isolated with little or no interaction with anyone and I've had assignments in which I had constant interaction with customers and other staff (distribution warehouse), it comes down to what you are comfortable with.
Each assignment is drastically different and shift hours also play a role too. I have had a lot positive experiences and a few negative but it really depends on the assignment you have the opportunity to work with and how it works for you.
If assigned a floater, unpredictability in location & working hours.
