Easy job but poor pay

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
You can work full time or part time with this company. They are good about being flexible if u go to school and/or work more than one job. The benefits aren't great. Neither is the pay.

Pros

Easy job

Cons

Very short breaks, horrible benefits

It was cool

Started working for the company during the pandimic. Had some ups and downs. The contract holder expects high quality service for little pay. Worked throughout the whole lock down and didn't even get offered pandimic pay. Contract holder refused to give workers a raise and threatened to cancel the contract. Management is awesome. Expect to be micromanaged from contract holder.

Overworked and underpaid

Yes you can get alot of overtime because this company has a very high turnover can't keep an employee... the pay is low no benefits no health insurance no pto no paid vacation no career advancement you will be doing alot of double shifts and even work six to seven days straight with no off days.

You can get hired easily

No real tips about this job come in and work, but if you are really trying to have a good job with decent pay and a reliable staff to work with, I wouldn’t suggest this job at all.

Pros

Employment, no other pro

Cons

Need better pay, Management issues, staff do what they want, no decent benefits

Consistent workplace

Being apart of a start up was a good experience personally and professionally. I appreciated the opportunity to participate. I believe that they should raise the compensation for all positions.

Jobs good for awhile but burn out is real

At first the job seems low demand and easy to do with a good employee rapidly being promoted, Great regional management, but between mandatory overtime, sub living wage contracts, poor higher management, and rotten apples who never get fired the job burns out within months. The shift supervisors make a grand total of .75 more an hour

Pros

Regional Management friendly, plenty of hours

Cons

Mandatory overtime, sub living wage, problem employees are hard to remove

The Good: I was always paid properly.

The Bad: Poor management, not enough opportunity for advancement, and very unprofessional Supervisors. They do not offer paid vacation, sick days or payed time, and the benefit package of Med, Dental, is way too expensive for the low wages that they pay.

Pros

Weekly pay, and on time.

Cons

Unprofessionalism amongst workers, poor management and staffing.

Utterly unprofessional & Dangerously Unorganized

I've worked for the company for 18 months and was told i was being hired for my experience. That because of my experience I can train to become a site supervisor. Within the time I've been with the company I've seen 3 fired Area Managers, 2 fired field operations managers, 6 fired site supervisors and too many guards to count. This company survives on its revolving door process of training, stationing and firing officers. Seniority will constantly be brought up if you inquire about promotions or other available hours other than overtime. I've had 2 checks mysterious not show up and one check took four months for the company to rectify. They completely botched my W-2 form by listing me as having a completely different employees social security information. I informed them in January of that year and didn't receive a revised copy until April. I never received my benefits. The company doesn't take into account how many "points" you should have towards PTO or Vacation time. Upward mobility is dependent on where you are at the time they need it because most of the time they fired someone hastily and the first person that is asked and accepts gets the position. I have trained people who now make more than I do that frequently ask how THEIR job is done.This company ONLY deserves to be a second job option. DO NOT dedicate more time to this company than you need to. They will be sure to abandon you. This company has lost 2 contracts since i've been working with them and the client we currently have performs around them due to incompetency. If you get a call back and you have ANY other - 

Pros

Weekly pay

Cons

no benefits, no consistency, no organization, no one answers their phone in management after hours, depressing work environment

Only good for retirees, or first job.

No acknowledgement of good work ethic. Attention only shown to "mistakes". Management is horrible, and should be redone. Look elsewhere for employment. There is no advancement, pay is horrible, hours aren't great, turn a blind eye to the people that best suits it while others recieve criticism for wrong or unrelatable situations. No vacations, PTO, or benefits. In summary, this job isnt for people that are trying to provide for a family. Wouldnt recommend if you arent a retiree, or looking for a first job.

Pros

Pros Exist?

Cons

Almost everything.

Work place that was to be taken serious at all times

On a regular day workers have to be scanned if they beep going threw the metal detector to make sure nothing was stolen.It was a good amount of nice people there i learned how to scan the workers because of good training so moving forward this type of job will always come natural.

Pros

No free lunches

Cons

No breaks were given

Was this review helpful?

N/a

I wouldn’t recommend this company to anyone. It’s not a good company to work for at all. No room to grow no appreciation or gratitude. Then they don’t pay you all of your money nor do they reimburse you
