Solid work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The work is what you make of it, pay a decent for the industry. Most of the time you will be in a react room or training. This is not a job for someone that needs to be challenged daily.

Productive and fun workplace.

This place is a fast paced environment with a lot of work to do everyday, had a good experience working here, with stable hours and pay. Enjoyed my time working for the company. The company do promote long term employees occasionally.

As long as you have a good account manager and scheduler it's a fantastic place to work

Good scheduler then you can get the flexibility,no training when I was promoted to captain.overall easy job and it makes it even easier if you have decent-good people also working at the site


Easy, good scheduler=flexible schedule


No training when promoted to Captain

Beancounters kill the incentives!!!

Security is guided by accountants and beancounters looking to save a penny here and there while killing incentives to do better. The management also cares nothing for the people or they're lives when money is in question. I was told " if I don't make enough here after 20 years on site, I can go elsewhere", which I did. Not impressed with company or management!!


None I could see.


Poor pay, poor management, know it all attitude

Be Mindful Of The Location You Apply To

If the location is severely under-staffed, run. Don’t work as a Cash processor, the work days are only a grueling, they care very little about their employees. You’ll be overwhelmed and underpaid, they care about pushing out as much work as they can. You will not have a social life, you’ll be too burnt out to enjoy your weekends.




Pay, hours, working conditions

A productive and interesting place to work with different cultures and languages

What is the best part of working at the company?Great team work and experience for me because I was a pediatric nurse before working with Garda world federal. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?It was when 2 or more patients came in ambulance and not responding properly and vital signs wasn’t stabilized or accurately, but MD and nurses was able to stabilize. We work has a team player.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Environment and the culture was fine because company have interpreted for diferentes languages What is a typical day like for you at the company?It was busy but everybody works as a team and that is the way we took care of the patients

The Company needs new leadership

The current starting pay is $16.50 an hour which is less than fast food here in Las Vegas. They don’t respect their employees enough to have team building events to raise morale. I have only been here a few years and notice they don’t want employees long term even when they are the ones that make this branch run well. It seems like the company is doing everything possible to get rid of there of stops by providing unreliable service by canceling routes and not returning phone calls of angry customers that want to know why they are not getting the service they pay for. Local management refuses to address these issues. The trucks are getting old and look horrible. Maintenance is not being performed to factory standards. They break down on a regular basis causing us to skip them on their service days. Then the company wonders why our competitors are scooping up our clients. Currently we have corporate leadership that had never worked on the trucks so what makes them qualified to tell me how to do my job.

They wear a really Good porcelain mask... Discernment is crucial.

What is the best part of working at the company?the pay scale is great, they are a Security company remember that. They like a bunch of other companies dipped their toes into the waters of attempting the medical field during the pandemic. This company doesn't comprehend the medical world, they wear blinders when it comes to scheduling their work schedules. The majority of their nurses at least at the influx facility in El Paso, appear to jump from contract to contract. Not knowing what it like to actually come from a hospital. Their skill set as well as their training is unsafe in that theirs no one to over look their work. They "Wing it" no policy or procedures like their is in a hospital setting, then all of a sudden they attempt to create something to appear ligament like from a medical facility. Their foundation is military and again a security company so theirs No real true understanding or comprehension on how to manage their influx centers. They Wing it on the majority of their processes and leave it like it is. Those nurses that actually hire on and come from a hospital environment, notice this oddity immediately. Its just sad in that Garda and the charge nurses they have in place need some Real help in that they need to return to a medical center and refresh their skills as well as their professionalism to say the least. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Working with nurses and staff that have been away from any type of hospital or medical facility for a LONG TIME. Charge nurse in place appear to be Lost in having any Basic skill set. -

No work-life balance

Nonstop overtime plus begging you to come in on Saturday to work. Pay was awful but was raised to attract new hires. Even people who have been there for years were being paid the same as new employees. This place was a waste of time.

Heart is in the Right Place but refuses to Pay Enough to attract ANY Candidates

Not enough workers across most areas, but will not offer competative pay to attract any workers leaving remaining workers overworked. Until they offer competative wages, people are overworked.

Nothing Good About Guardaworld

This company is not supportive of its workers. Literally managers do not care about their workers. No growth opportunities at all. They do not want to give you days off. No pay raise and some managers are uneducated and very unprofessional. I tried for an internship with this company and they could care less in helping you advance. They do not know that we make money for them, not they make money for us.

Military friendly especially for combat MOS's

This was for overseas contracting at USEK in Afghanistan. PSS/ERT course was really well put together, at least with my Instructors. Process takes about 8 months if you get on the ball and have all requested documentation sent asap. Personnel were all great to work with of which all had military/law enforcement background. Overall my experience was great until the shutdown.


Like military but much better pay.


Job is based off politics but that's the job.
