Fun place to work at
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 20, 2018
No site supervisor, lots of work for little money. Nice for someone who is just starting out in security. No job advancement. The booth you work out of is not clean. Lazy co-workers. Uniforms shirt are not tuck in. The list can go on & on. Pay is 11.00 per hour due to city of Chicago minimum wage increase.
Pros
Paid holidays and vacation
Cons
Short breaks, no advancement with the company, low pay.

Disappointing
Part Time Employee (Former Employee) –  Dothan, ALMay 16, 2018
I never got past orientation. After filling out an hours worth of paperwork on things I didn’t know yet because I hadn’t been trained yet, they tell you on the very last page that you are required to pay $120.50 to work for them. $87.00 for the license and 32.50 for a background check. I would’ve only been working one night a month for special events and only gotten paid $8.
The man that started this business would be disappointed.

Boring
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAMay 8, 2018
You will be required to work solo most of the time. You may be the only officer on site and if any emergency occurs, you will be held responsible. And learn your emergency contacts as well.
Pros
Quiet most of the time.
Cons
Must bring own lunch. Cant leave site for any reason during shift.

Stay away
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Dothan, ALMay 2, 2018
If you’re looking for a stable work environment this is not the place. Be prepared to be bounced around from place to place and days off in between. The pay is miserably low for the amount of responsibility and the owners are clueless and management is lacking in any knowledge of their employees beyond where their post are. You’re just a cog in the wheel. The management will promise you the moon and stars but they don’t offer to deliver. Also, expect your coworkers to be extremely lazy and indifferent.
Pros
Low pressure
Cons
Low pay, unstable work environment, clueless management.

Work at your on descretion at DSI Security Services
current employee (Current Employee) –  Knoxville, TNApril 27, 2018
DSI would be a great company if their branch offices where structured and staffed better with Branch manager, Operations manager, Office receptionist which all work together to maintain a professional growing business. All contracts should be for security officers should be $10.00 and above with better offered benefits, They need to offer a sign on bonus of at least $250.00 after 90 days of dedicated on time work with no call offs or no missed days within a 40 hour work week. Better contract pay structures would help too.
Pros
Its a job until you find something that pays better.
Cons
low paying contracts, guards quit with no notices, very little advancement

Was a job
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FL 32207April 16, 2018
I worked at a warehouse on the Westside of Jacksonville on the night shift. I had to sign in and out semi trucks for delivery of grocery products by computer and on 2-3 different clipboards of paperwork. I signed in employees who forgot or lost their badges and gave them a temporary. I signed in/ gave a temporary badge and notified management when their interviews and guests arrived. I checked employee and guests bags/ trunks of their vehicles upon entry and exiting of the warehouse location.
Pros
I had a steady paycheck and had the option for overtime
Cons
Stressful many negative employees within the warehouse, rate of pay

Things are overall okay if everyone does there job
Pros
Nice Supervisor
Cons
Low wage for work

Client can make or break.
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Plant City, FLApril 2, 2018
Posts in any security company vary. Mine is a fast paced, demanding one earlier in the day, but quiets down as night approaches. Client expectations can be unpredictable from day to day, and there is significant adjustment for those who have worked slower pace posts. Most of the supervisors have been understanding and helpful with scheduling issues. Pay is nothing special, and the benefits are laughable. Good for a college or first job.
Pros
Schedules can be semi-flexible (depending on supervisor)
Cons
No real recognition or advancement to speak of.

The Company is a joke.
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  ILMarch 19, 2018
The company doesn't keep in touch with employees, no raises, no shift differential pay. They do nothing to keep their employees happy. Would not recommend DSI to any company looking to hire contract security.
