Airport Security Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJMay 26, 2018
Most people call out, and you have to cover other shift, raises are only for three years then they stop. It is an important job, to get paid so little.

Its only a paycheck
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLMay 21, 2018
It was horrible. Management is very unorganized and unprofessional. There is so much favoritism when it comes to overtime. The work hours are horrible, you can work a 4 or 8 hour shift and plus you can get mandatory overtime and end up working sometimes 16+ hours. Hours can vary, which is not stable for an adult with responsibilities. They have no regards or understanding towards people personal lives. They use you when it’s beneficial to them when they’re short of staff.
Pros
It was a paycheck
Cons
The workplace

it's an empire
Security coordinator (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLMay 17, 2018
The only problem there is management. They have like an empire. They want you to follow the rules but management break their own rules. A lot of MANDATORY overtime, favoritism and they accommodate who they want regardless of seniority. I won't have enough space to say all the things they do. I went to the very own CEO to solve the issue and as soon they saw an opportunity, they set me up and got me fired hiding important info from CEO.

LAX Security Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA 90045December 10, 2017
Never minded the hours much, but be prepared to listen to all the old grumps whine their entire shifts. You get paid more than half the people around you for doing a lot less work. What more could you ask for?

Read before you apply
Security Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 9, 2017
Their turnover rate is horrible and for obvious reasons:
Working in a freezer with no proper equipment or fair warning.
Low pay despite years of experience.
Unprofessional is an understatement My advice isd to keep looking elsewhere because even if you settle for them they will hire and fire people left and right. Many people have quit the job after they see how bad it is for themselves.
Pros
Free lunch

Is a fast environment

Environment make you feel dead inside
Security Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Astoria, NYJanuary 21, 2017
Nothing much but another job, but it would be great if they paid way more or at least when they upgrade your pay at least $3 but not even. makes you feel dead inside because you have nothing to look forward to if the pay was better then at least you have a paycheck to look forward too, the union sucks also they don't do anything to help with the pay or anything.
Pros
sometimes easy
Cons
no part time, pays is horrable, union sucks
