I learned to be a better supervisor.. I enjoyed working with my co-workers, but management wasn't too great.. there was no communication leaving everyone in the dark about certain things. but overall I enjoyed working for them.
It is better to be a full time employee and a part-time employee at Secuitas.

Securitas is a good company to work for. They pay well and try to maintain a professional work force. The are plenty of benefits for full-time employees; however, part-timers only get pay for hours worked. I believe the company's weakness is in the reliability of their site supervisors. A lot of them are very young and inexperienced. I believe that with closer supervision by their superiors, every Securitas site could be a great place of employment.

The day to day operations probably vary by site, but it becomes monotonous. Hours are flexible, if you find someone to switch shifts with. PTO SLOWLY builds and after 52 weeks you still won't have 40 hours till after putting in 5 years; and the pay is not great. Annual raises are minimal.

I was a supervisor most of my time here, and being that this all the employees we were in charge of were unionized so it made things difficult. Supervisors didn't have much support from upper management.

Securitas is a terrible company to work for. They do not care what so ever about you or your family. I strongly recommend not to work for them, unless you are single and are able to deal with continuous stupidity.

I would never work at this place again, poor managment , lack of team work, poor chance of advancement, they dont keep their words and you working for them for years and being loyal doesnt mean anything.

It is a great place to work (Depending on the site). We lost quite a few great people to other jobs that had less stressful duties and paid more. If you work graveyard shift, don't expect to get your full pay. At Midnight, your pay starts over and you get screwed out of you overtime.
