This is not a good company to work for. They only care about their contracts. Management will not look out for you. They only care about themselves.

Started with this company when they opened the program. Was chosen as one of the layoffs due to favoritism and not work ethics. If work ethics were a part of the deciding factor a few of the people who remain with the company would no longer be employed there.

No one at the company ever mentioned there would be a possible RIF (Reduction In Force). Lack of contracts resulted in layoffs! With all of the efforts in training and working and getting a security clearance, layoffs seemed out of the question. Working remotely was definitely the best benefit, but it was almost too remote. There were ten employees working in the area and none met to collaborate and share ideas and problems in order to create synergies and efficiencies of production to make the team more productive. The compensation should have been much greater for the work expected and information required. From the date of offer letter to date of hire was nine months! Be prepared to find other employment in the meantime of your own background investigation being completed, which there is no guarantee you get the job after the nine month wait!. That waiting phase was almost as stressful as being critiqued by the Review team on trivial errors for every report submitted and rejected! If the pay was drastically increased, I would consider returning, now that I know what to expect and how to play the report writing game.

This job was really laid back not hard at all, no boss hovering over my shoulders, I worked overnight every now and then my boss would call just to check up on me which I thought was great.

The training is terrible. They just throw a bunch of information out and you have to test on it. You never really learn anything. One week is spent doing virtual training and then two weeks in Herndon Virginia. None of the training is useful
Pros
Remote work
Cons
Poor training

Nothing good I can say about this low budget company. The management is beyond a 0. They do not and will not care for you as a person......But they will work you until you get sick.It seems to have a Huge problem with hiring people, So for that reason they will work you Crazy hours and shifts beyond 40 hours.The Dumfries va place is TRASH. The managers and supervisors are a disgrace. and ER is a evil person.

Many opportunities to advance in many fields of SCIS. The company is very fair in allowing everyone to achieve success. The only downfall is that the salary range is a little low for the service that employees have to provide.
Pros
Very flexible
Cons
Not enough manpower to cover shifts

They have poor training skills, they only overwhelmed you with so much information instead of teaching piece by piece. First week of training is over the phone. They send the materials without giving you enough time to review everything before you start the training. All the material they sent was supposed to be for about 38-40 hours of work but its takes a lot more than that. Teaching material was very unorganized.
Pros
Mile reimbursement
Cons
Poor training

However in position of Investigations - Entry level training time was too short. An additional two weeks training would be more beneficial for trainees to grasp all the material to learn for background investigations.

Enjoyed learning the curriculum, just didn't have the time to master it enough to progress in training, so was unfortunately let go.
Pros
Respectable company to work for and with.
Cons
Training time was not sufficient - long enough for reasonable orientation

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.
Pros
Great part-time pay.
Cons
No team work oreinted environment.
