Pros: not much to say
Cons: endless cons..
I am working for Paragon and have been with the company since 2009. At my workplace I have been "written up"/warned about the most stupid little things, and this seems to be the normal way to handle/control guards instead of just taking a talk face to face and get things corrected. I try my best to do a good job, and all i receive is negative vibrations from my incompetent Site Supervisor and the client service manager, who btw. is a big joke. Where do the company find these csm's?
At least I have an excellent salary of $11.25 an hour! My biggest problem is how to invest this huge amount every payday? Well, to be honest, when my normal bills are paid, I almost need to go to the food bank to get something to eat.
How come that Paragon and the security business have so lousy wages?
We guards are put on the front line day in and out, and no one ever thanks us for the work we do. We get endless complaints from visitors, contractors, the client and our own supervisors/csm's, a little "job well done" from time to time would make a huge difference.
But I guess this is the nature of the job. Get hired, get a lousy salary, listen to complaints all day long and get written up, until the day you are transferred to another site or fired from the company.
