Upon my arrival at Global, I've nothing bad to say about them. An honest and respectable company to work with. With advancement opportunities, for those with the proper skills and discipline.

Well first of all I use to work for this company and they are messed up there was no hands on training or anything else it was all online. They hire felons. Hours and pay sucks. There is other companies out there that that 17.00Bto 18.00 Hour to carry a firearm. I don't see how this company is still in business.

Official response from Global Security Services

GSS does not hire felons because of the nature of our business. Also, employees who are offered a position must pass a background check, as a condition of receiving an employment offer. Candidates are made aware of this condition during the hiring process.

Armed Security Officers are required to work a scheduled shift, which varies at different sites/locations. As for the pay rate, this was agreed upon during the candidate screening process and confirmed at time of hire.

Its just a good company to work for. The work is easy but not to chill. The area I work is a comfortable place to work and the pay is fair to the point of working.

I was there for 2 years and never had pto. This company will make you feel good in the beginning but does not care about you at all. Not military friendly they will work you to death even if you have a drill day the very next morning.

I have worked for a lot of companies but this is by far the most organized and certainly the most professional. They actually take pride in their appearance and provided armed security unlike most companies out there.
Pros
Pto, vacation, benefits

Management is ambitious, but not moving quickly to get jobs in the areas where jobs are not available anymore. Good company with slow aspirations.

This company does not communicate with their employees at all. Paychecks would not show up on time to your house. Company takes you out of state for work with no option to come home to visit family as well as no date that you will return for good.
