Contract Work
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

Security Guard Officer (Current Employee), Wichita, KSOctober 19, 2014
Cons: no health care, lack of communicaton, not nofied when pay changes
Securing premises, staff, and clients. I have learned how to appropriately deal with irrational people, people who have trouble reading and writing. Learned how to have better communication with clients. Management is not the greatest, lack of communication and pay are an issue. Co-workers are great depending on location of where your post is located. – more... The most enjoyable thing about m career is the fact of helping people and serving the public with a secure and safe environment. – less

Pros: wages are decent
Cons: no oppertunities for advancement, no brakes, no benefits, no stability in job
Currently i am with this company cause the pay is well but there are no benefits and i will have no more opportunities to advance or receive raises. I would prefer to work for a company where i have chances to move up and better both myself and the company. I am looking for something that pays around the same as what I make now so i can progress and – more... become more financially stable. This way i wont feel like I'm starting completely over from scratch. I'll still be able to feel accomplished and be given a chance to learn and accomplish even more with a new company. – less

Life as a floater
security guard (Current Employee), Columbia, SCOctober 17, 2014
At Securitas, my work is made interesting by the fact I am a "floater," meaning I fill in when someone is on vacation or calls out for whatever reason. This gives me a great deal of variety, and allows me to work on all types of assignments.

SECURITY OFFICER (Former Employee), Greenville, SCOctober 16, 2014
Pros: fun, people
Cons: unarmed
I would stay in the guard shack and check the id's of the people that came in so that the wrong people don't come in to someones house. What I learned in the job duty is that there is a lot that has to be watched over like animals and people that are not allowed. The management there was good. The hardest part of the job is that I was unarmed, the most – more... enjoyable part would be communicating with the people that lived there and listening to the stories they told – less
