Popular company with a lot of job opportunities
SECURITY GUARD (Former Employee), Edison, NJSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: friendly employees
Cons: shaky job security
A typical day consists of building tours, logging in tractors and trailers and greeting clients as they enter the premises. I learned how to be vigilant at all times and basic first aid. Management was shaky at best; lots of turnover at the top. My co-workers were diligent but frustrated. The hardest part of the job was always having to deal with job – more... security. The most enjoyable part of the job was the amount of overtime I might receive. – less

Poor employee retention.
Security Officer (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MNSeptember 13, 2014
The occupation of security officer is a dead end job. You will not get promoted. This company struggles with scheduling properly.

One of the more enjoyable, stress-free jobs out there.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Edison, NJSeptember 13, 2014
Pros: your assigned site, paid training, 401k
Cons: your assigned site
- A typical working day experience varies depending on the site in which you are assigned to.
- Every other site can have its pros and cons. You may be positioned behind a desk, warehouse, booth, indoors-outdoors, etc.
- While you may be under surveillance at certain locations, you don't have someone supervising and breathing down your neck; if you – more... prefer it that way. This can be a blessing or a curse, should you choose to abuse it
- Fighting sleep was the hardest of challenges
- I enjoyed the different sites and opportunities – less

Smooth company once you get in you'll never know how far you can go.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Jersey City, NJSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: close comute
Cons: n/a
I worked at truck port which is an outside environment so must times I enjoyed my days. working there I was able to learn how to keep track of vehicles by logging them in by name, make, or model, or by company names and/or drivers. I also learned to have patience and how to interact with different kinds of ppl young and old, man or woman. it was a great – more... experience. I worked at two ports actually. the hardest part would b the condition of the port. if its not paved with concrete, it can b pretty dusty and make our uniforms look unprofessional. Last but not least my co-workers where okay. we all tried to get along and keep things mutual. – less

Totally client focused
Security gaurd (Former Employee), Glasgow, SCTSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: great staff on most sites from managment down
Cons: uniforms not replaced due to money restrants
If someone further up would realise that sometime the client is not always right and that sometimes guards are human and not disposable pieces of garbage this company could be great, but alas it has more turnover per site than greggs .Also you have no chance of getting a " blue chip " site unless you,re tapped on the shoulder by the mafia in head office – more... so useless applying – less

Good job, but to much mismanagement
Security Guard (Current Employee), Dunmore, PASeptember 10, 2014
Pros: stable work environment
Cons: no room for promotions
I really enjoy the work and the people i work with, but I am tired of working for a company that makes empty promises for promotions and raises. I learned a lot of how the security field works and how to fill out and file all of the paperwork for the day to day operations of security.

Armed Officer, Genesee Health Plan Account (Former Employee), Flint, MISeptember 10, 2014
Pros: inside/ climate controlled
Cons: no advancement
I was only ever put on one site and I was able to get my 40 hours there. It was a climate controlled office and the people there were mostly great. I was able to make several friends.
I managed myself and an occasional helper should a special project come up.

Depending on who you work with it can be an enjoyable environment.
Security Officer (Current Employee), londonSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: my site is quite relaxed.
Cons: everything else.
You can't really progress in this company unless someone up the ladder likes you.
They advertise jobs they have no intention of interviewing for fairly as they have the candidate in mind prior to posting the vacancy.
The pay isn't great but you can make an ok amount as long as you work 200+ hours a month. They're cut is about a 3rd of what you earn – more... with the emphasis on working more hours to earn more money, sometimes you wonder for who.
They've cut back on offering training for door supervisor up skilling unless your immediate site requires it.
You can work with good people but you will find alot where they were just given a job because they're friend is in a postion to pull a few strings.
Sometimes upper management can be disorganised but they generally do what they're supposed to.
They expect you to bend over backwards for some of their clients working 14 hours + sometimes and they don't reward you for it or offer any incentive. – less

Poor pay, terrible benefits, selfish management.
