Security Guard (Former Employee), Calgary ABMay 23, 2012
Customer comes first at expense of your safety and the security of the customers. Management does what they can with what they have to work with and are often caught in the middle. Better then other companies in the field. Keeping detailed personal notes is a must as clients will scapegoat for their own short comings.

Productive workplace that requires punctuality, respect for other coworker while promoting safer and better workplace enviroment.
Employee (Current Employee), Ottawa, OntarioMay 4, 2012
A typical day at work will include the following:
The necessity of arriving at workplace on time.
Going over all memos left by the other guard:
Making sure all equipment and necessary documents are prepared.
To be helpful towards customers needs.
On of the most valuable skills i have learned in Securitas was to pay careful attention to customers needs, – more... while evaluating their request and finding the best, suitable solution.
The hardest part of the job is to fill an accurate report in case of accident.
The most enjoyable part of the work is the amount of free time given for observation of surrounding area. – less

Great for students, not a career
Security Officer (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UtahApril 15, 2014
Pros: it's easy work
Cons: terrible benefits, chaotic work schedule
This job is pretty easy, but there is no loyalty. You will be sent to jobs that are ridiculous distances from your residency regularly. The benefits are pointless, because they nearly cost an entire pay check. You will be asked by the clients and Securitas to do extra work that do not fit into the Security job description, such as facilities work, maintenance, – more... and even scheduling. The job is great if you are a student, because you will most certainly have a lot of down time to do homework. – less
