Easy and good job for detail, can be very boring
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – July 18, 2017
The only downfall to the guard duties is the only thing you're allowed is a book. Its cool that you can bring anything at all. The mornings and evenings are crazy slow and you're on camera the whole time. The downfall to the camera is they hire someone to watch to see if you are sleeping. If you doze off at all you're terminated. I liked the job and finding the mistakes (client or customer), however it was apparent that finding too many made people upset. I believe this was because this caused them to do more work to correct the issues. Customers were typically really nice. Demanding to have a bathroom break was a pain. The hours were long and you only could get a break if there was someone to relieve you once they felt like letting you go. The restroom was on the other side of the building and you had only 15 minutes to do whatever you needed to do. If you took longer than 15 minutes disciplinary action was taking. They are very strict on time, what time you arrive, what time you take your break, how long your break is, and when you close up and when you leave. (Down to the minute).
Would get a lunch break
Had to beg for bathroom breaks at times, boring at start and end of the day.
