  • You have to participate in about 4 hours of lecture and fill out an ungraded exam to achieve your 20 hour certification. Securitas.

  • They only gave you a test with more than 100 question just to discover your sergeant did a 20 question assessment.

  • They do in San Antonio TX very professionals but when you get to Eagle Pass TX location site you discover your sergeant has lack of security training and do not know what's the security code of honor means. He was not a security before he started that job and he did not did the same 120 test question like you. Also his allowed to hired securities who will not passed the background check at site.
    They will let them go hired you fired you and then rehired them again. Now your only concern it's to exported merchandise TABC out of the city and guard that no item it's take it back while the exported process when system down you will do it the old way easy as that but he will not let you know he'll wait until you make a mistake to bully/ blame you. Also store managers will make you believe you have to make an inventory before merchandise left the premises on a vehicle which this it's not your duty but them that's why their been asked for their presence while exportation by vehicle. Items will get lost and managers won't showed you the video also your not allowed to make activity daily reports. This it's a problem they need to resolved as soon as possible

  • In Pennsylvania the Pa Act 235 Lethal Weapons Act is our Armed Security Certification from the state. I had attained this prior to be hired at Securitas. It’s optional to have the lethal cert or unarmed. I was not told that I needed one upon hiring. Only applied to Pinkerton version of Securitas Armed Mobile Division which also requires a License To Carry loaded in a vehicle.

  • Yes I have my lices and I do a lot of work at security gurd

  • Technically yes, they direct you to the locations for the fingerprints which is the livescan and depending on where you get it. It ranges from 50-70 dollars out of your own pocket of course. Then they direct you to an online website to do the 8 hour training and that cost about 24 dollars out of your own pocket. Once you turn the fingerprints in and the 8 hour course papers. They offer you pay for your background check that is close to 80 dollars but you must pay them back in increments through your paycheck and if you don't pass the background you owe the company 100 dollars that must be paid in a certain amount of time.
