Wages must include local cost of living and travel costs. I can't afford an apartment in Grass Valley on $11.50 an hour. Plus car, insurance, and utilities. No good groceries!

Stop hiring new staff at a higher pay rate than the senior officer whom has already put in years on the job and more than likely will have to train the kid who already makes more through the gate. It decreases morale

Securitas needs to pay their employees mileage for driving over 30 miles to a site. I was told this was the policy when I was hired and when I asked to fill out mileage paperwork the management said we don't do that.

This company needs to learn how to walk the way they talk!

Management needs to actually listen to employees' concerns instead of dismissing them, especially if everyone on the site has the same issue.

Look for your active Officers that have the drive and experience to move them up instead of hiring someone new into a management role such as branch manager, schedule, recruiter, front desk secretary, Human Resource director. There has been about 10 chances in the main office for me to move up but always passed up. And when new comes in they really don't know what is going on with regular officers on sites.
