Typical day at work start off fast pace and then around 4-5 p.m. it slowed downed, I learned to work as a team become a work family. Hardest part of the job no close restroom to our booth. My coworkers and shift supervisor made each day enjoyable.
Officer (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – January 18, 2019
I have called corparate office 2 times today and they hang up on me. I have an issue and when I talked to my supervisor manager he told me to take the day off. That's 7 hours of no pay I lose. Not happy I was told back in December I would be a supervisor never happened only making 7.50 hour drive 25 miles both ways. Kept getting told that I was going to be supervisor every other day never happened I called corporate office then I get moved to another location and another guy got supervisor job. They screw you bad. Charlotte office needs new managers.
No support, no back-up, no care, not worth it for someone who cares about a decent career. Never sent my license to me, nor cared when I was hospitalized. Provided no corrections or feedback to junior members. Changed my working hours without notice or consideration
Former Security Officer (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – January 8, 2019
This is one of the worst security companies in the area where I live. No one answers the phone when you call the office for assistance. It goes straight to voicemail EVERY TIME !! When you do leave a message, no one returns your call.
Poor, unprofessional office staff. When you walk in the office, they act like they are doing you a favor by assisting you.
Poor, unprofessional account managers. They do not check on you at the job site.
Low pay. No one can survive on what this company pays their security officers. All this company cares about is getting paid every month by the client for the contract.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Port Fourchon, LA – January 7, 2019
Poor Pay, poor management, unable to access main office for anything. Never answers the phone, never returns messages or calls. Biweekly paydays are unmanageable with a salary that does not meet cost of living expenses. No mileage pay for extensive work travel or toll bridges.
One of the lowest paying companies around. If you knew what they made on their contract it would make you sick. Their salaries are absolutely pathetic. You're there to make them money, and they aren't willing to share. Paying what they do amounts to having the worst guards around. The qualified ones wouldn't dream of their wages. Don't even apply, you can do better
I was out of work for a year and weiser gave me a chance. But the pay is not enough for the cost of living. They have missed up on paycheck several times with my overtime and was around christmas time, when I needed the money. I didnt that over time until a month and half later, and they tried to give it to as regular instead of the over time rate which I work for.
Officer/Sgnt. (Current Employee) – PHX, AZ – November 18, 2018
I love it here and returned recently after a 3yr pause, to a few new faces, however the professionalism has not changed. Mgnt. Is good at placing you where you can use your strongest skills. Premotions are earned. You can buy back vacations. Work hard and you will be acknowledged, pay is tolerable, OT usually available. Great communication in office/with guards.
after helping them open a post, I had two employees quit within the first two days. I stayed and worked up to 16.5 hour days so the post would not be left unattended. I found a better job and left about two weeks into my employment. When I received my final check, they had cut my pay rate from $11.50/hr to minimum wage. I expected this was just a clerical mistake but when I reached out to the company, they told me they were under no obligation to honor my pay rate and would not pay me more than minimum wage for my last week, which i worked over 60 hours to help them keep the post. Their decision lacks all integrity and I hope this post will save some other prospective employee from having to deal with this worthless company.
It's a great place to work. I worked as an Account Manager and worked anywhere from 3800 to 4200 man hours a week, Training in safety and procedures and the hardest part of the job was keeping job sites working to the potential of the clients expectations but what I loved about the job was the people I worked with and the fun that we had on our down time.
Security Supervisor (Current Employee) – Oswego, IL – November 7, 2018
sadly due to it being contracted security the pay rate for all you must do wasn't a career choice but a job for in the meantime. its a good gig for starting out in security depending on location. a typical day at work was going in at 6am and staying for an 8 hour period. highly stressful hard to get people for the pay and what you have to do, I did learn crisis management and successfully survived in a chaotic environment but because your contracted if the client takes over chances are you'll wind up not staying as in house and scrambling to find new work. the hardest part of my job was trying to find coverage with limited manpower. the most enjoyable was the location and the 8 hours schedule and having weekends most times off when we had manpower.
Love coming in and switching shifts, getting the criteria on what has taken place on that day. The most enjoyable part is that I'm on my own securing the lot. There is really not hard part about my job, cadillac. The workplace is phenomenal, not too busy, not too laid back.
SECURITY SITE SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 26, 2018
One must care about their workers as I did while working with Weiser. I never encounter an issued when it came to finding someone to replace a call in. The reason being is because I treated my officers with dignity and respect. More bees with honey always.
