Centerra
Site Security Captain (Current Employee) –  Mound, TXFebruary 19, 2019
They pay well and you can advance quickly if you perform and show up. I see a lot of different people on here complaining and I've never had issues with being promoted when I deserved to be.
Pros
Advancement, Pay, benefits.
Cons
Nights and weekends for officers.

Great job with a lot of jaded employees
Scheduling Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Mendota Heights, MNFebruary 12, 2019
As a member of the managerial team and a former lower level employee, there is a disconnect between the two sides that is difficult to overcome. Employees don't understand what management expects from them even with clear guidelines. Management has a hard time completing all their tasks with a constant shortage in staff. There is a fine line we walk to keep employees happy and working while still maintaining some disciple so they do their jobs the right way.
Pros
relatively easy, good pay for the work, unionized
Cons
limited advancement, must be flexible, training is challenging and often

bad decission to take the job
Power Systems Manager (Former Employee) –  Cuba, MOFebruary 12, 2019
They made it sound great but upon arrival completely different, if you did not own a boat you did not fit in.

I focused on the power plant, my boss did not follow the contract guide lines which ultimately got all management fired and a new company awarded the contract.

How not to run a company.

being in the tropics.

Management was impossible to deal with.
Pros
cheap food
Cons

Easy place to work
Aquatic Washing Helper (Former Employee) –  Borger, TXJanuary 30, 2019
I learned responsibility and to work hard and the environment is a good place to be in. Work is hard sometimes but worth it at the end of the day. The hardest part is learning to multitask and get the job done. I would recommend for anyone to work here.
Pros
Breaks, good work environment
Cons
No air conditioning during summer, lots of multi tasking

Great People
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Westfield, MANovember 28, 2018
Great place for a student. Can't really say much about the company. However, on my site, you are treated as family. They do offer benefits, I choose to not opt in for them.

Standing on corners in all weather
Protective Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 14, 2018
I thought standing post for 12hrs would be fine easy but I was super wrong. It takes some getting used to, and some time for the pain to go away be ready for a lot of standing and some sitting from time to time.
Pros
The pay and benefit
Cons
standing in all kinds of weather

Terrible Company to work for
Armed Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Radford, VANovember 13, 2018
If you want to be micromanaged and punished for things that you had nothing to do with, this is the job for you. Do you like going to work thinking that you are going home at 3 just to find out at 2 that you have to stay 8 extra hours? You'll be even more excited about the fact that it happens more than once a week. But you get overtime pay right? Wrong.

staff (Current Employee) –  United StatesSeptember 26, 2018
With a lot of contracts coming through, this can be a very busy place to work. The pay for the officers is great. Hopefully things will pick up for the other employees in the future.

Too much emphasis on the Union
Special Nuclear Material Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Los Alamos, NMSeptember 23, 2018
As guards, there are union members and at-will Supervisors. The company's mantra (as stated in writing) has been, "Make the Union happy." The cultural work ethic in Northern New Mexico, combined with the Collective Bargaining Agreement ensures that Supervisors are overworked, and are constantly dealing with entitled, immature adult children. There is an unwritten rule that if you are a Supervisor, you are getting paid enough to stick aorund, or leave. There is no real worthwhile advantage to working for Centerra as a Security Police Officer Supervisor other than the pay. Unfair treatment, and no management support for disciplining the union members leaves much to be desired from a leadership standpoint.
Pros
Very good pay.
Cons
Too many to justify staying just for the money.

Site Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Battle Creek, MISeptember 16, 2018
As a security guard for Centerra Group LLC, if you're willing to travel, you can work in multiple locations throughout the state.
As a supervisor, I had the availability to travel throughout the state with reimbursement for overnight stays.

Just bad from top to bottom
Armed Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Oxon Hill, MDAugust 17, 2018
Couldn't keep people and couldn't hire people to work shifts needed. Would change your schedule and not notify you of the changes so you could make the appropriate adjustments for child care.

Operations Manager/Training Manager (Current Employee) –  100 Raoul Walenberg Place, Washington, DC 20001July 30, 2018
The workload is large but as long as you are organized and stay on top of your duties you will stay ahead. None of the employees are over worked, but all employees are pushed to do their best.

No job advancement
Security Officer (Full-time) (Former Employee) –  Mesa, AZJuly 30, 2018
We went through three supervisors. Even though people that worked there showed interest in the supervisors position they hired outside people with no security experience. Then the last supervisor decided that he didn't need an assistant, so there is now, no job advancement. Dead end job.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
No job advancement

probably not operational anymore
EMT (Former Employee) –  Midland, GAJune 22, 2018
Leadership suffered due to lack of personality and leadership skills. Manager was clearly a "scapegoat" for the contract. Employees pay was lowered as the contract was suffering from Pratt & Whitney. Back stabbing employees that practiced drama and rumor antidotes in lieu of bordum. Policies constantly change without being passed down and the employees get reprimanded.
Pros
time to study
Cons
get in trouble for EVERYTHING
