Management SUCK!! The job itself is a great experience.
Security Ignorance Agent (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJJanuary 30, 2019
Lack of communication,poor professionalism... if you are not a “favorite” you was brushed to the side... somebody in management was lying all the time... you get paid by the flight... but then you could go hours w/o getting a flight ...a large gap b/w flights... management hygiene was way off... if you have children the job is not for you... you need to be gullible and young...Employees had “big personalities “ regret meeting 90% of them....

NEVER AGAIN GLOBAL IGNORANCE!!

DO NOT APPLY worst company ever
Security agent (Former Employee) –  Newark Liberty international airportOctober 17, 2018
First off they lie about paying you for your downtime now some flights are only two hours while you’re there for four hours and not getting paid for the two remaining hours you waited for the next flight.. now if you do a longer flight they still will only pay you half of the flight hours that you’ve done in total they will take hours from everyone management is not to be trusted the female general manager was very unprofessional and had no type of general manager experience....the 2 men supervisors are very lazy and perverted they will have u doing Their job while they sit in the car and try to flirt with the girls at the airport from Global agents to whatever company ..ITS unacceptable ...LOOK OUT FOR PEREZ...(CREEP)I hope this company gets Investigated and shut down..they are bunch of scammers and PORT AUTHORITY need to get them out of the airport ..

Global Security is a very relaxed company that doesn’t offer many benefits and all positions are part time.
Armed Guard (Current Employee) –  Pompano Beach, FLJuly 12, 2018
They receive discounts from AMC Theaters and receive free movies, the pay is 15 an hour and 8hr shifts mostly on the weekends, & you’re an armed guard.
Pros
15 an hr, free uniforms, free movies from AMC theaters, discounts on food, & armed guard services
Cons
Standing all 8hrs in one place, no lunch breaks, no benefits, & not many open shifts

Pros
By yourself
Cons
Long hours

Collections Specialist (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALApril 26, 2018
This company was one of the best I've ever worked. They gave you bonuses and the chance to advance and grow without causing you to be stressed out. They gave you so much to look forward to in the work field.

Everything sucked
SECURITY OFFICER (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLApril 16, 2018
You are hired as as sub-contractor so that means no overtime (you will be asked to work on average 60+ hours a week and if you say no you will be made to feel bad about it and you will be continually pestered), and no taxes are with held from your paychecks.
Pros
You'll get hired on the spot
Cons
Literally everything
