Specialist (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 17, 2018
This job sounds good, even great, and for some, it is. However, working there for one year, was probably one of the most painful jobs I've ever had. The team is less than organized in terms of who they hire and how they train those new hires. While the job is easy to understand, the rules while on the job site are more than unreasonable. The job is considered a "Customer Service" position, and yet SIS doesn't allow for you as a "Customer Service Representative", to interact with the client in any way other than as a security "Specialist".
You are just a number and thrown away when not needed anymore
Security Specialist (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – July 19, 2018
There is no job security here at all, you will be cut before you know it, even if you have great attendance, seniority, no write ups, and know your job well. HR runs the show from California, and any issues you have just fall on deaf ears and swept under the rug. I had high hopes working here , but seniority and performance do not exist with this company when it comes to position cuts, you are just a number to them. If you are looking for a short term position this will be great for you. If you want to be able to build a career for yourself and be rewarded for everything you have done and have a secure position, do not work for this company, at least here in Mesa, Arizona.
No advancment, just a number, HR does not back you at all
Off Duty Officer (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI – July 8, 2018
This company besides being a great company to work for. Awesome management and staff., first class. The manager always follows up by email or phone on any issues you have with scheduling, payroll or other matters. Very high tech company you clock in using their app and your phone.
Security Specialist (Current Employee) – Arizona – June 30, 2018
No career advancement, poor management. They don’t care about you. No job security. Morale is non-existent. The only reason people continue working here is for the pay and the convenience of it being close to home but after a while, that no longer matters either. SIS in CA might be a better option but most certainly not SIS in AZ.
Poor management, low morale, no career advancement, no stability, no job security
Security guard (Former Employee) – Richmond, CA – June 26, 2018
a typical work day would begin when you get on site your credentials are verified, you receive a pass down of the day's events from the prior shift, the equipment used on site and you would then escort the previous shift off-site and begin work. maintaining an hourly log of the shifts activities. it was a great job but like most security jobs contracts don't last forever/
OPERATIONS MANAGER (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 15, 2018
The amount of support and learning with this company is second to none. I've been with the company for a few years and the family atmosphere and opportunities given to me in my time has been phenomenal.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 14, 2018
The specialists make this company what it is and are paid the same no matter how long you have worked for them. They don't care about the employees and all they care about is the contract and the money.
minumum wage job
caos every day understaffed poor leadership No pay increase
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – June 8, 2018
This company was the best security company I have ever had the pleasure of working for. They offered relevant training for advancement, paid higher than all other security companies, and only hired professionals.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – May 30, 2018
Management will look for any reason to terminate an employee once the contract size shrinks. At the location I worked they were supplying close to 80 security specialists and once construction is complete will only need approximately 12.
Security Specialist (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 23, 2018
They will never give you a raise. They also create toxic work environments with staffing issues. If you have any work ethic they will put you with people who have none. Then they treat you like the bad employee for wanting to work with better staff.
Amazon Corporate Security (ACS) trainer (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 17, 2018
Every day was always different but somehow the same. Everyone was busy, never a shortage of work. What i enjoyed most were the people, they keep me coming back every day. There seemed to be a disconnect between upper management and the workers. However I can't say too many bad thing about this company. It is a great place to work.
Specialist (Current Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – May 13, 2018
The most enjoyable part of this job is being part of a team that is willing to help develop and guide you to where you want to go. Whether it be a specialist or a supervisor, they will reward hard work and dedication.
Global Security Operations Center Supervisor (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 5, 2018
This company serves a high speed client in an even higher speed industry concentration. It's easy for some to get lost in the day to day activities depending on your job title, but also easy for those looking to quickly advance their career and learn plenty of new subject matters. This is a very diverse work environment with plenty of room for growth for their employees. Overall, you get what you put into it.
Very relaxed work environment as long as the incumbent does their job
Easy for entry-level employees to get lost in the high speed aspects
Field Security Supervisor (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 6, 2018
Like anywhere the company did not hold everyone to the same standard. This showed through the way they promoted and treated their employees. In my eyes favoritism went all the way up management to CEO.
customer service (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – March 26, 2018
Duties: customer service, monitor access control, escort vendors, activate/deactivate badges, communicate with BAC (Business Assurance Center) dispatch for escalation or emergency purposes, etc. The job wasn't hard at all you just had to be very observant. The most enjoyable part was interacting with Amazonians.
frequent breaks because we had a lot of employees to help
