Electronic Technician in Davenport, IA

Decent place to work
Training could be a little more extensive as this role does not have many employees in the division. Also advancement in the company is not likely to happen.

This company is not ran very well. There is nothing good about this company. The supervisors play favorites. The owner does not know what he is doing. Plz stay away!!!
Security Officer in Johnston, IA

I’m only writing this to address some of the helpful comments I’ve read that the company have tried to defend themselves on. But, I’m not only going to talk about bad, every place has good and bad. But before I go into the good the bad and the ugly if your legitimately looking into a this company make sure you can pass a PT test. A mile and a half and push-ups. First, the pay is okay I would say it’s higher than most other places or companies you could go and work for and I have always been payed on time. Like all jobs the pay could be better but it’s not the worst. Secondly the hours, the hours are long and there’s a lot of them. Most people who apply can’t pass a physical secondly if they do they usually go work somewhere else. Busy days will be busy with lots of things going on but slow days will be absolutely slow with nothing going on. “Training” if you have had any training prior (military or hands on training) it’s probably better and you will feel like it’s a quick refresher course. Everything I did was on my phone or in class watching PowerPoints. We did do weapon draws and reloading drills so that’s a plus. But if you have no prior experience you won’t get much out of it. We have had everything from DUIs to fights so if your looking for some experience, it does happen. The badFirst of all for a company to attack someone’s grammar in a review, sure their grammar may have been bad but they didn’t label the company as an aerospace and defense company. Second of all the company does hire felons they just management positions. Third, the company will watch your every move and even though we have SOP (standard operating procedures) the company (GSS) or the client (unnamed) will change them when they feel like it and haven’t been updated in years. We have had people get in trouble for the way they drive responding to a legitimate call. Also, they like to say they hold people to high standards, but we have people who work here who have put their hands on fellow employees and have never shown up for their shift. The only time any action had been taken is when someone who works for corporate never showed up to their assigned shift.

This is a good company. It’s very straight forward. You come in do your job and you go home. My advice for anyone wanting to come on is as follows, leave your personal life at the gate. Keep work stuff at work. And home stuff at home. This company will take care of you. But you have to show the effort. You have to show you are willing to work and not have to be “babysat”. There are amazing people who work here. They will have your back no matter what. Don’t cave into the politics. It’s not worth it. It’ll make the job seem horrible. You have to be a people person. Interaction is a must at this job. Being the friendly face people see in the morning is a motivational key. We are the first people they see. We can control how their day starts. In reference to the company? It’s amazing. Everyone has their flaws as you will see in other reviews but do your job, do what’s right, and make good decisions and you’ll be just fine.
Armed Security Officer in Des Moines, IA
