Security Protective Officer in Herndon, VA

Good place to work. Job responsibility is reasonable. This job gives satisfaction in pride, accomplishment and financial compensation. Good benefit for retirement.

The most that can be said about this place is that it is a stable job. Often staff are treated as inmates and there is little respect from upper management.

A lot of workers don’t care about their job or helping people/veterans, as they are just there to collect that pay check. If you are a hard worker that likes to go above & beyond, help people/veterans, do work your entire shift (minus breaks), you are gonna have push back from others, difficult time within your work unit, most likely get bullied/harassed because of this ( because you just doing your job makes the other people in your department look bad, even though you’re not meaning to do so, because they aren’t there to work & go above & beyond, so be prepared!! Pay level is lower than civilian sector for the same job but as a Veteran myself I wanted to help other veterans & you can also continue to add years into your military retirement when working for the government. Your medical appointments you can schedule where you work & save yourself having to take time off work to go. You will get extra leave time off for being prior military & get extra PTO hours per pay period. You are also supposed to get hiring preferences for just being prior military & up to an extra 10 point preference above all other applicants if you are 30% disabled or more. You’ll also get every single Federal Holiday off.
