Private Security Officer in Portland, OR
on June 28, 2022
Company is constantly understaffed, and no real attempt is made to make working here more appealing, so you'll constantly be asked to fill in empty shifts. The "Family Culture" they claim to cultivate is at best, Dysfunctional. Poor communication means that supervisors will be calling to ask why you're not at work, even after your time off has been approved. Be prepared to be ignored, overlooked, and forgotten... until they need you to come fill a shift, which they will call to ask you about almost every day. You'll notice your shift starts at unusual times, usually a minute before the start of the hour. This is done to play through a bunch of loopholes to minimize the amount of overtime they have to pay you for. All in all, it's a job, and it pays the bills, but for the time and effort, you're better off flipping burgers.

Good for gaining experience in office work, and an easy introduction into the security industry. It felt intimating at first, but repetition of tasks has greatly helped. I do enjoy the regulatory nature of the job, as the policies (should) ensure a cohesive work environment. This is the least stressful customer service-oriented job I've had.Pros: good entry-level start to security and community work.Cons: not too much flexibility in scheduling if you want less than 40 hrs of work.

I wish I had throughly taken the reviews into consideration. I applied anyways, since they were extremely responsive. The other officers seem miserable in their jobs and vocally expressed their discontent to me on my very first day. Nothing is updated, I decided to resign because their is no clear indication of what and where my duties are, Two days of training is not enough and a paper map of an arial view of Portland is insufficient for someone learning the site.

I've been here for a while, and honestly from the start I felt something was amiss here. The whole company is hanging off of thread. There is no proper training, they make you do 2 day of UNPAID training but said training doesn't really help you. It seems like all the Supervisors are on different pages, one person will say one thing, the next will say something different. Nobody has any idea what the heck is going on!! IT'S BAD!! I've set back and just watched this all go down hill.

Not much advancement opportunities. Owner and managers are not supportive. No sense of family. Lots of worksites to be placed at which is nice but not enough pay.
