Management lacks integrity and its not responsive to the officers needs.Poor Covid-19 precautions at the site.Anything you say to correct something is being taken as a complain.

Not a good company to waste your time with.

If you love yourself do not work for this company. They do not appreciate an employee's dedication. Its all about you working and they get all the bonus and benefits. Sorry company.

Horrible Company

Management is literally the worst. no communication, supervisors cannot do their job properly due to the operations manager having the final say. Even small things such as moving days with another guard can’t be done even if there is no schedule conflicts. They hire anyone off the streets so every guard you get has a chance to be someone who doesn’t want to work and be lazy. They also say they provide uniforms and good pay when they really don’t, this companies security standards are laughable and they do not care about your well being at all. I contracted covid from my site and they didn’t even compensate me for it, it became my fault for getting it and almost got fired

Pros

None

Cons

Low pay, used until you’re not need, no management of any kind, no penalties for being late so being just show up whenever, HR and call center have little to no power, no job security, no uniforms

Building

I worked after my shift was over the supervisor/company never had people to cover for my relief I would call and they gave me the run around I worked a second shift that started at 4/12 o’clock I felt it was not fair to everyone because I covered my hours on time no one wanted to come in and wouldn’t allow me leave after my shift was over I mean who cared as long they were home to rest the employee didn’t matter

Poor management, hours were limited, and poor working conditions.

The management will blame you for anything that goes wrong, even when what goes wrong is out of your control. There is often very short notice for your overnight shifts.

SSC is the best security company to work for!

I was welcomed with own arms and management was always available when I had questions or concerns regarding my site and time off requests. SSC makes you feel like you matter.

No chance for advancing and no increase in hours

A good job if you want a little money for no work basically you do rounds on a 3 story office building every hour but pay is low and as a worker I was not heard

Excellent

It was easy to get a job and I also love my job so much. It's a nice company to apply. I have some pretty good colleagues at work. Everyone come to work early and they are very understanding and cooperative. The company pays when ever its payment day.

Basically Just placing bodies and billing clients!

Zero Training; Poor to NO Communication; Terrible quality uniforms; Poor to minimal benefits; No regularly scheduled pay raises or annual reviews; Employees (guards/officers) can be taken advantage of unfairly.

Cons

See above

security guard

A typical day at work for security it depends on what the site you in. Sometime the company will put u in a public or privite area .A public area for a work day can be ok dealing with alot people also being aware of anything that suspicious customer service is always needed patrolling area and personal protection.A privite area can be ok there still alot to do such as building and garage tour reporting proprty damage and reporting any emergency situation monitorig cameras answering phone but less people to deal with it.What I learn from security is monitoring cameras guarding institutional, industrial or commercial property against fire, theft, vandalism and illegal entry.Where to locate fire pump rooms boiler rooms electric rooms.how to deal with trespassing and demonstration.How to act and take constructive steps to solve or settle an issue. The hardest part of security is emergency situation.Most of the time security have to interviewing witnesses and write a report to the manger. calming people down when people get angry or upset. Also when people try to trespass break in property, stealing and breaking the property policy for security to actfast.The enjoyable about security is time go by quick when there nothing do to beside tours and monitoring cameras.

Pros

No free lunch

Cons

15 mins breaks or 10 mins it denpends on the site
