Security officer (site supervisor) (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – November 9, 2018
You go to sites where you're usually sitting in your own car which requires you to run your own car for a/c or heat. If you're lucky enough to get a guard car to use, the car is usually very dirty inside and sometimes not maintained like it should
easy work, no stress, Overtime was readily available if needed
having to use your own car on site, lack of benefits, no raises
Security Assistant Supervisor (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – June 27, 2018
A great example of how not to treat your employees or run a business. We were promised raises when the company came to town and took over our contract. 20 years later the raises never came and minimum wage is now their starting wage,
didd not think the company cared for there employees

Security Supervisor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 26, 2016
Great Security Company to work for. The staff is very warm and welcoming. I recommend this company to all persons. This a very productive and fun work place. The staff is wonderful. A typical day included receieving packages, greeting all visitors, this was in the morning. In the afternoon things slowed down, but my co-workers were a pleasure to work with. The account mananger and operation mananager was the best.
I would be an emergency fill-in and cover for various sites. I learned that your dedication to your hustle is your only limit, in this company. Management has a "hands off" approach which is both good and bad. I go to a variety of places, so I don't get to interact with co-workers, much. The hardest part of my job, is to keep busy when I'm not scheduled due to lack of hours. The must enjoyable part of the part was my compensation for a job well done, and meeting associates on the client side of things.

Nokia Corporate Security Supervisor (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 9, 2012
A typical day involves monitoring the appointed site and its employees. You learn how to manage security situations and interact with people in case of crisis. Management is remote. Teleconference meetings are held where verbal updates are made and written reports are submitted. Co-workers at the Nokia location are wonderful. This is a low incident site. The hardest part of the job is the commute. The most enjoyable aspect of this job are the people and the comradery that is developed.
