Easy and manageable work place, with time to relax from time to time.
Lead Officer At Disney Housing (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – July 17, 2018
The job it self is easy and manageable. The problem here is that they ( management) don't hired real officer or people that actually wants to work, making the job harder on others. Making rules that don't apply to every one and a lot of favoritism on the schedule and regulation to some officers. Plus they don't pay accordingly to the rank of the role performing.
Security Officer (part-time) (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 13, 2018
All sites are different and some are organized and some aren't turn over is very high and some managers and operations manager dont know how to communicate with officers. My second week there I was threatened to be fired if I didnt come work a special.
Security Site Supervisor (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – July 10, 2018
The company is a great place to start a career in security. The environment is good and it allowed me to increase my skills as a supervisor/manager. The biggest issue I had were the hourly wages but the staff is trained well.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Fishkill, NY – July 8, 2018
With no rules posted expect them to constantly change. If you liked being looked at all shift while having nothing to do a majority of the time this is the right place to be. Very slow paced, and good for someone that wants to just sit for a majority of the shift. Horrible management. Expect to be called all the time but for your calls to never be answered.
Good for people that enjoy a slow paced environment
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – June 24, 2018
SecurAmerica is a good company to work for, but the benefits and salary is not as competitive as it could or should be. However, there are opportunities to advance to supervisor positions, sometimes pretty quickly. At the site where I work the property manager is very smart and kind. She gives Christmas bonuses and invites security to the onsite property management functions
Opportunity to become supervisor; and holiday bonus and invites to property management functions.
Benefits and pay rate ($10.00-10.50) is lacking & is not very competitive.
Unprofessional company, will fire at will , could care less about you, they just need bodies to fill posts
Officer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 23, 2018
They hire bums off the street. Lack of professional managers. Lousy to zero benefits. They don't care about their employees and will fire you at will. No healthcare plans, no major medical, no 401K retirement plans, no thing.
ACCOUNT MANAGER/DIRECTOR OF SECURITY (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 21, 2018
SecurAmerica is a very positive work place in the beginning; but if you're an ambitious person, you can easily become disillusioned as one's efforts tend to go unnoticed, depending on your chain of command. If you're a security minded person, you can find yourself languishing in the abyss of entry level positions or lower management. But if you're more charismatic and sales oriented, those are the folks that get more than a second of third chance to advance themselves despite whatever shortcomings they may have from a operations perspective.
If you're a good physical security officer, they're more than happy to let you keep being that. Don't expect anyone to recognize talent, leadership and experience and exploit it for mutual benefit.
Flexable work schedule
Investment in leadership development can be improved

Security Guard (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – June 4, 2018
If you do your job right you wont have no problems. they have a lot of overtime to give out. they will make you work a double if your relief doesn't show up no exceptions so if you have children keep that in mind.
I have been working for this company for over three years. I have no complaints. They treat me very well. I have never had any problems with any co-workers. Although I enjoy each day on the job I am not very fond of the long hours with little pay or benefits.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – April 30, 2018
my review for SecurAmerica is that it is not a good company and does not take care of its employees however working at the saint john paul shrine has been good and its the best site i have worked.As a catholic i can say its the sole reason that i have stayed with the company and i hope things do improve with the company.
I honestly cant find a fault in this company, Management is there when you need them even if its the smallest thing like for example if you forgot your tie they will send a QA to bring one for you. Sites are clean and professional you get the necessary training for every site you work if you're working multiple sites.
I liked the work because I was running security and keeping order in the buildings. The managers were good at training, but also quite laid back. However, the termination of contracts frequently left me out of work.
If you like security work, it is a good starting company.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – April 10, 2018
This company constantly harasses you to take overtime you are not required to accept. Management is by far one of the worst I have ever worked for. These people do not care about the well being of their employees and will constantly squeezed every ounce of whatever energy you have left to fill a shift.
