A typical work day included relieving fellow officer, reading pass down notes, performing duties as stated in the post orders.

I learned every site was different.


Management could not have been better, I had a really good supervisor and scheduling manager would always work with what I needed.


My favorite part of the job was the job itself, I was a security officer looking out for peoples safety and the protecting the property.


Shift's: 8,10,12,14hr
Pros
Works with you schedule
Cons
Not enough Flex officers to cover shifts

Securitas is just another run-of-the-mill security company. Pay is about what you would expect for the type of work you do. Management can be a bit sketchy when it comes to time off requests, even when hardly request it.
Pros
Decent pay for simple work
Cons
Requesting time off is a hassle

In terms of contract security, Securitas is an outstanding company. You can depend on support at the branch level. They provide abundant training, tools, and support necessary to succeed.
Pros
Training and support
Cons
Contract security

being on call 24 7 made doing things difficult. Calls at all hours of the night to report to work and no support from management. 70hr weeks the pay was decent but I was always worn out.

In my experience as an employee I’ve realized this is not a job or a company to make a career of, sites are a mixed bag.. some are good... some are bad... some are very ugly... They will never be honest with you about anything, and sometimes show significant incompetence, it’s steady full time job but it’s steady pay but always make sure to watch your money and time because mistakes happen because they have never moved past the days of pen and paper time sheets, meaning no real deal correct time just around about ..All in all it’s a job not the best not the worst but it all comes down to site
Pros
Pay, never the same job twice between sites, possible stress
Cons
Sometimes not paid accurately, dishonest management

This company and other security companies don't care about you as a person, you are just another body. Don't even get me started on the pay for these positions. They have the nerve to ask for qualifications but pay you 10-11 an hour, don't waste your time.
Pros
zero
Cons
Everything.

The client demands can change daily. But its security so that comes with the territory. Health insurance is the most expensive I've ever had. Not many options.

If you want to sit for 12 hours and do absolutely nothing but walk around once an hour, go for it. If you want to be called in every day because someone called out, go for it. They have no respect for your personal life. They expect you yo drop everything to work a non scheduled shift. And how dare you get sick and cant show up. I hated it there. Management talks to you any kind of way
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Awful pay, awful management, boring job

Worst company I’ve ever worked for. Didn’t get paid for OT, no pto or sick time, and never received a final check. Had to file with the labor board against them since they refused to help me out.

Very easy job with decent pay for the responsibilities that you are required to preform. They do offer health insurance but it is expensive and not good insurance.
