It's unfortunate that disgruntled employees would use this forum to accuse and defame. It's understandable that there may be many times that an employee may not agree with or understand business practices from their vantage point. It's also understandable when an employee either leaves on their own volition when they are dissatisfied. Every employer faces these issues on a daily basis.
The interesting thing about the two reviews posted to this site are from employees that had no seniority, were not in management and had no involvement in the divisions of service they are so boldly making declaration.
I would like to clarify some of these erroneous claims as I would want anyone, future employee or client, to have accurate information in which to base their inquiries to our company.
By the very nature of this industry, security is one of those things that people don't need, or think they need, until they need it. The goal is always to address needs as quickly as possible to give that client peace of mind and a sense of protection for their property. Most times this results in changes in scheduling to accommodate the ever growing private security industry. This is not for the faint of heart and not all workers can acclimate to the schedules or the need to change according to client need. As much as you attempt to prepare someone, living it is another thing entirely.
With the amount of service that patrol vehicles endure every day, it can be very brutal on all aspects of maintenance, and like other industries that have heavy vehicle use, we are no different when it comes to having to manage service/repair issues all the while still taking care of clients.
I'm not sure where the information about declined credit cards, sharing one credit card and using personal gas with no compensation comes from. This individual was not part of the vehicle patrol team and is very misinformed.
Following rules, guidelines and state and federal laws in all areas is something we don't blur the lines on. Requiring individuals to work "off the clock" has never been communicated, expected or promoted. It's interesting when employees want to "rewrite" the terms of their shifts by choosing to arrive early to justify leaving early and then can't understand why there is a problem. Also, we are bound by Oregon DPSST and would never try to circumvent their jurisdiction by having an employee work without certification. Again, it's interesting how someone believes they have all the information available to them when questioning another's hiring status, promotion or wage.
I always welcome an employees feedback if they have issues (had a meeting with the employee who posted on 1/31/18) - good or bad! What's disconcerting is when someone chooses to embellish, exaggerate and falsify information to lash out when they were held accountable for their own lack of performance and gossip.
I look forward to continuing to growing our company and finding great people to help us continue providing excellent service in the Portland area. Check us out for yourself and you decide. less
