Event Security Officer (Current Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – November 13, 2018
Securitas is a good company and has good workers. Securitas has taught me so many things about security, on how to operate, inspections, and looking out for any bad activities during an event. The supervisors are so friendly and kind.
Supervisor/Security Guard (Former Employee) – Westminster, CO – November 12, 2018
Depending on location, and management involvement, the atmosphere can be productive. I learned how to write a daily log, learned how to manage associates while being productive and getting objectives done in a timely manner. Management was hit/miss. My supervisor was rude, and condescending, whereas my district manager was somewhat helpful at times when he wasn't getting too involved with other business ventures he was predisposed with. Workplace was office setting, very quiet. Dealing with management Being able to manage myself and others.
Security Officer (Full-time) (Current Employee) – West Deptford, NJ – November 12, 2018
Wow, I have never worked for a worse company! The managers were doing illegal things like forcing us to workm extra shifts when we told them we couldn't or just said "no". They don't care if you have kid(s). They don't care if you are sick or your kid(s) are sick. They don't care if you've been in an accident. They just want bodies and they will work you in literal sweatshop conditions. Low pay, garbage benefits, management is criminal (surprised noone has sued them yet). If noone shows up to relieve you, and you call the office, they will tell you "they are working on it". While you're waiting for relief, noone shows up. The office in Marlton, NJ does NOTHING. They have NO CLUE what they are doing, they are incompetent and real a-holes. DO NOT WORK FOR SECURITAS! STAY FAR AWAY FROM IT! Unless you like being worked to death!
the nicest part of the job was conducting my rounds in the security unit and patroling the premises and also conducting detex rounds.i also had times when i had to sit at the security desk and observe the c.c.t.v.
I worked at a location in westborough MA. And it was the best work experience I ever had. Perfect management and great coworkers with steady work and good hours. The location in Greensboro NC. Was horrible. I Worked at a location in Jacksonville NC and the pay was low and the location had a different procedure than the company and there was no way to know which to follow. The management also had no planning skills and couldn't find replacements if people put there notice in even after two weeks
Security Guard (Current Employee) – Flex Officer, many locations – November 11, 2018
It can be dangerous. You must be constantly alert and observant.. You must be at the job site and stay awake. You can't leave your post unless you are relieved. Securitas will work with you. They have an excellent scheduling manager.

Security Officer (Full-time) (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 8, 2018
This is the worst job that I have had. If you like to work where no one cares about you and you get yelled at by management because you weren't trained, this job is perfect for you. If you want a security job find a different company.
