I worked for Inter-Con on a Kaiser Permanente contract. I was a Lieutenant and I would supervise all the guards on the contract, along with the Captains. I was responsible for the overnight supervision on numerous occasions. I would ride around to all of the Kaiser Permanente locations in the Washington DC Region. I also prepared call the time sheets for monthly auditing.

Site Supervisor (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 10, 2018
Very professional company. Excellent training, salary, and benefits during my time of employment. Good career for me after leaving the military. Room for advancement and a secure contract which is not always the case in this field.
Security Supervisor (Current Employee) – Pasadena, CA – March 27, 2018
Employer does not look out for their employees. Posted site locations are ok. Fast pace environments. The hardest part of this job is communication with corporate. It is all about business and do not look out for the well being of their employees.
Unarmed Security Officer (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – March 23, 2018
Unable to be flexible. Suffers from internal communication. Unable to let guards transfer from sites that they have issues with. They are slow in investigations of incidents and try to get you to quit so they do not have to pay for unemployment.

Trainer (Current Employee) – Lorton, VA – March 17, 2018
great pay, bad management, bad benefits, bad uniforms, bad command staff, no advancement. The pay is good for the area ($30 hr) but there is no screening or interviews to become a supervisor which leads to terrible supervision. Uniforms are uncomfortable (Corfram dress shoes and shirt stays) and they are a very well versed in the "that's just how it is" system even though their rules and procedures says otherwise.
good pay, lots of overtime
management, training, leave, no 401, expensive insurance
Diplomatic Security Officer (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 1, 2018
This is not a good place to work. They can force you to work overtime whenever they please. They switch you from working nights to mornings, or evenings to nights and vice verse and you’re not allowed to refuse. This place is 100% favoritism if your not on the supervisors favorite list be prepared to work every single weekend. Management is very poor I don’t know why they would promote some of the people they have in supervisor positions. I have ever worked somewhere as awful as this before. When you use your sick days they unofficially punish you by putting you in the worst post that they have for an extended amount of time. On the bright side your co-workers are usually pretty cool and easy to get along with. The pay is good but not good enough for you to hate your life. DO NOT WORK HERE!
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Oroville, CA – February 27, 2018
Not a good place of employment. Won’t even give you time off for a funeral service with out proving your related to the deceased. You get written up every time you get sick and have to call into work. When you get sick at work and have to go home.
Armed Security Officer (Current Employee) – Pasadena, CA – January 29, 2018
Inter-con in a great company to work for. Like most companies, if you do the job your expected to do, you'll be just fine. I've worked for them in various capacities and would like to find work at the airport, ports of entry, Railroads etc.
Slow work environment, nothing to do, poor management, incompetent post commanders
Armed Security Officer (Current Employee) – Edison, CA – January 19, 2018
I have been working at inter-con for close to 2 years. In that time I have seen my colleagues leave for various reasons, such as, the management was not willing to keep them on a temporary basis when that is the way they were hired and they have volunteered on their days off and given everything they had for a company that does not care about it's employees.
Recently they have placed a new manager in my area that is making changes, which would normally be fine, however, he is imposing changes with no more notice than a day. If you have a family you cannot make changes in a day and expect your employees to drop everything and do what you need them to do. These are major changes, like a schedule that has been set for months and everything my family has done is based around my schedule.
My post commander in beyond incompetent. If you cannot spell the word suspicious in this day and age, then you definitely do not have a bachelor's degree as he says he does. Also, when you use "are," instead of "our,' to describe OUR new manager, you are not educated as you claim to be.
The management does not care about it's employees in the slightest. They claim that you can come to them with anything you need, which is true, but they do not care unless it has to do with helping them out.
The first month I worked at Inter-con security they asked me if I would help them out and go to Devers Station (Palm Springs) which is more than 50 miles from my home, for a three day period. I agreed and filed a form for mileage in order to get paid for the amount of miles I drove to and from. However,more... they claim was "lost" or there was some other excuse for me not to get my mileage.
If you are someone transitioning from the military and need a quick job while you wait for a police job or some other career that is long term then go to another security firm.
There is a lot more that I can put down, but this review is running long enough. In closing, DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY.less
Low pay, no room for growth, incompetent leader ship.
Security Specialist - Command Post (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 18, 2018
I enjoyed working for this company. Overall it was a good company to work for. Leadership was present and lead by example. The reason for leaving this company was that at the time benefits were not being offered.
officer (Current Employee) – Washington City, DC – January 17, 2018
Job is not meant for you to succeed. The uniforms are horrible in cold weathers. rules and policy are were made for you to be miserable at work. Managers don't care about their officers. They don't come to introduce themselves but they expect you to know them, but you never will. Don't get me wrong the pay is good and you will get your hours, but this job is only for people to stay for a short time. Once you get your credentials, leave as soon as possible
Dispatcher/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – December 25, 2017
Your working crazy hours. Dispatching guards while answer calls from sick guard and Clients that have not had guards show up. Also doing schedules. Its a lot for only 11.00 a hour. The management at the office its at least 3 different office staff you do their work for them because there to busy running around playing like immature kids. Such a very unorganized work place.
Special Deputy Marshal (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – October 29, 2017
The Special Deputy Marshal vacancies in the upstate and WNY locations are all filled by referral. No exceptions. All new hires are retired law enforcement and are either friends or family of the area supervisor, or someone above him. Its unfortunate that the old boy network runs such a lucrative federal contract, but what'd you expect?
$30/hr. for an armed guard job standing at a door.
They don't train you much just hand you papers to sign and the rest you're on your own.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – July 27, 2017
They send you to a place that's already been secured and then don't answer at all or reply back to any messages until you already left the post. The pay was ok for starting at 13/hr but if you were to want to get hours you have to travel and sometimes it'll be milage approved and sometimes not so you'll be on your own. They honest didn't train me for my first day and I was so nervous already and then I quit that day because I was so overwhelmed by the paperwork I've never been explained to about, where to go, who to contact, and what I should have. Always read the stuff you sign though it'll have some help but not much. I messed up there but oh well.
