Force Protection Officer (Current Employee) – Kuwait – August 18, 2017
I did not enjoy my time with Triple Canopy. I do believe that they were very unprofessional. There were instances where I was not paid on time due to lack of communication between the supervisor on shift and me. I would not recommend this contract to anyone
Pay is dropping for PSS, decreased standards for new hires
Protective Security Specialist (Current Employee) – Reston, VA – July 6, 2017
Team oriented job that is essential to U.S. government asset's abroad. Challenging work environment, leaders posses skillset and knowledge that is essential to function in austere, high-threat environment.
Very challenging due to the many different posts that were available.
Physical Security Officer (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – June 25, 2017
Very challenginebut satifactory depending on the post you worked. You learned a lot about Federal Rules and Regulations and why management did what they did. Each post was unique in itself due to what type of business was conducted there. The hardest part of the job was remembering the uniqueness of each post as each post had a different manager who wanted duties done a certain way. The most enjoyable part of each post was to be able to interact with the general public.
Learning how each post operated due to the type of business being conducted there.
Having to remember how post had its own set of rules applied only to that post.

Coworkers share similar interests and backgrounds. management can improve on communication. pay can be increased. the company could be more forward about the amount of time and money is to be spent before receiving any benefits or pay beforehand.

Private security contractor employer who offers a fantastic place to start in the contracting world. Although you will be away from your family for an extended period of time in an austere environment, the opportunities are completely up to you.

This company will continue to drop the pay and when they say road warrior they mean it. I would wake up at 2am to get on the bus at 2:30am and make my 2 hour trip to base (not paid) and do a hour of guard mount (not paid) then pull a 12 hour shift and got back home on another 2 hour bus ride (not paid) to get home to only sleep 4-5 hours a day. If thats your life then go for it. But you have no life their.
The money will get you out of debt if you are disciplined.
Force Protection Officer (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – February 14, 2017
Thankful and appreciate the opportunity to work for the company. Accomplished my goal to get out of debt and build a savings. The job itself is very hard and stressful. Working conditions are by far the worst I've ever had to deal with. Would not advise anyone to take on this job first. I personally would not repeat doing that job again, even if I was down to my last dollar and that is the honest truth. I would be a waitress first and I pray I never have to do that again either. It's that bad!
No rent or utilities to pay. Stay disciplined guys and save your money. It will end at some point.
Need more single rooms, better working conditions, stop the drama and be fair with the post assignments, more pay and stop cutting FPOs short on the money, improve working conditions on outside post.
Guard Shift Supervisor II (Current Employee) – Undisclosed – February 14, 2017
If I did not need the paycheck I would not be here. The management process of this company is lacking. There is no oversight at higher levels allowing individuals to be placed in positions of responsibility and decision making that should not be there.
