Great, fun team to work with!
Site Supervisor and Armed Guard (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – March 11, 2018
I've been working for Merchants Security a little over a year now. I started out as an unarmed guard on a very nice contract, plus I worked extra hours when coverage was needed- which made for some really nice paychecks. Anytime I had a problem at work and needed an answer, the office staff and the field supervisors were there for me and they were always ready to listen and to help me find a solution.
After I had worked for the company for six months, they sent me to OPOTA armed security training and paid for the course when I passed. They also had me on the clock and paid me for every hour of the class. Eight months after I started working for the company, I was promoted to a site supervisor position for a large, important contract. They have been very supportive of my decisions and work as a site supervisor, and I really enjoy the work I do for them.
If you have a phone, reliable transportation (your own vehicle), can pass a drug screen and a background check, they will welcome you to the company with open arms.
If you have a great work ethic, are on time for work, wear the proper uniform they provide for you and it is neat and clean, and you have drive and initiative, it is very possible to advance quickly with this company.
The office and field staff are terrific and lots of fun to work with. They are like family. They have a lot of good contracts and the job duties and pay vary by post. You will receive on the job training for your post, and there are many opportunities to expand your skills (and your paycheck) by working at other sites.
Office staff is great and you can have overtime if you want it.
Security industry pay is not the greatest, but I love what I do!
