overall positive and enjoyable work experience

it was an overall great experience working for Thorpe. CPR training was completed in house and was very important to me, personally. Management was very helpful and very friendly. I believe they genuinely care about the employees well-being and overall experience while employed. I was stationed on Lake Lanier and found it to be a fantastic experience on how to communicate with the general public…while they’re intolerably intoxicated!

Thope Enterprise

As a former employee my work schedule fitted my life and I work with a good staff. Overall Thorpe is a great company to work for, and I enjoyed my time with the company

Unorganized & unprofessional, would not recommend.

Management was awful. The employees & supervisors didn't know how to separate their work life from their home life & were always in someone's business or spreading rumors.

Thorpe had a variety of assignments

This job allows for you to mingle with all types of people. Benefits were not great at the time. If your in transition in the work force this company helps you get on your feet. The different areas you can work in allows you to get different experience all under the same company.

Great place

Thorpe is a great place to work if your in need of job. Long term success this is not the best place to be there's no room for growth after a point. There needs to be more meeting between employees and managers. There are no lunch breaks you have to eat if there's time. If you are retired did is a awesome place to work.

Pros

overtime

Cons

Pay and benefits no room for advancement

All work work and no thank you..you get a check that is your thank you.

Working at Thorpe Enterprises is great when it comes to get a schedule you can work. The pay is not that great and the company really doesn't care about there employees. No place to advance unless you kiss butt not by your knowledge of the field but how much sucking up you can give to receive the position.

Pros

you will get the schedule you say you can work.

Cons

Enjoyed working with associates and residents

I provided a professional attitude during stressful situations. Daily duties included access control, informing residents of delivery and visitors, securing the building and parking area, keeping a daily log on the activities throughout the property. One of life most difficult task is pleasing people, I found it to be a challenging endeavor, nevertheless I found it enjoyable when I was able to complete this challenge.

Pros

Meeting people

Cons

Not being able to please everyone

Previous Officer

As a company, there could be improvements with the Supervisors and Project Manager for the Atlanta Watershed Department account. Management needs work

TERRIBLE place to work!!!

City of Atlanta Department of Public Work Site Project manager never answer, respond to texts, meeting requests or address concerns. Manager will defend the wrong doing of supervisors. Manager will defend what he doesn't know. Supervisors constantly violate the Code of Conduct. Supervisors become friends with S.O. and show favoritism. Thrope Enterprise is a terrible place to work. They have a high turnover rate and hire Every Tuesday... it's a reason they can't keep anyone. Work for them and you'll more than likely resign or get fired within 3 months of your start date.

Pros

None

Cons

hourly "check-in", incompetant and rude supervisors, no communication, unorganized, poor management

Worked in command center

Need to be able to multitask. Working in the command center can either be fast paced or relaxed depending on shift. Bonuses were great and benefits not so much. No paid vacation time but you had the opportunity to work other shifts if they were available to make up for lost time.

Pros

Bonuses

Cons

Benefits

Decent wages and work environment

Overall the post that I was assigned to was a positive environment. The shift was manageable and you were able to meet new people everyday. The clientele helped the day to go by faster.

Productive abd fun work place

A Typical work day consisted f Checking on site supervisors and their subordinates to ensure the accounts were running at the highest level. I learned a lot about the business side of contract security work and gained confidence to interact with clients or potential clients in a professional business setting. The most enjoyable part of my job was that I was able to help employees and co workers become better in their jobs and in their personal lives. The hardest part f the job was dealing with a no good, cut throat snake of co-workers which there are in any job setting.

Pros

Overtime is available for houryl workers. Advancement is possible

Cons

It is contract work so you could be left unemployed atanytime.

Productive workplace

Signing in Atlanta Police Officers onto the property to ensure they have the proper identification upon entering facility . We also signed in city of atlanta employees onto the property as well. Secured a gate so people who do not have identification cannot access the property

Pros

Great site to work at.
