Security Officer (Former Employee), Bruceville – November 25, 2013
Very easy to work for. Didn't really see co-workers. Kept logs and patorl grounds. Management was really helpful. I learned how to deal with people. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping people. The hardest part was when people would not take no as a answer.
Overall I enjoyed my time at this site. The job isn't hard and I like multi-tasking.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Indianapolis, IN – November 25, 2013
Pros: occasional free lunches(1st and 2nd shift)
Cons: unaffordable healthcare
Originally started in Chicago working on the transit system. Being here in Indy is totally different. worked in Distribution Center in the Guard Shack on 3rd shift. Typical night consisted of checking trucks in and out, writing incident reports. Learned more about tractor trailers. Had 4 different supervisors now of which were fully trained.New officers – more... that were hired I feel are too young, they have no work ethics. There is no hard part to this job. I enjoyed everything I had to do. – less
Security Officer (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NV – November 24, 2013
I enjoy who I work with, I enjoy that I get to drive around all day and night and see a magnificent views of Lake Las vegas, But over all the management neglects our needs to improve ourselves financially. There is not much to learn, and being on the road 8 hours of the day means little contact with people. It can be a very easy job but also very difficult – more... in the way that we are pretty much isolated much of the time. Management can be very misunderstanding of the job we perform and can be a bit harsh on every one. Over all the job is just what it is. And for that I can be thankful but I would like to improve my life and this is not a job I can do that with. – less
Security officer (Former Employee), Little Rock, AR – November 23, 2013
The employers are very flexible to accommodate the needs of their employers, they are a wonderful company to work for, and I would love to obtain another position with the company now that I have relocated to Texas.
Field Service Supervisor (Current Employee), Washington, DC – November 19, 2013
Pros: conversing with the men and women out in the field.
Cons: no testing on security matters.
I would go out into the field and visit from site to site, where I would encounter issues with scheduling, call outs from guards and client concerns. I learned that you have to be patient with the clients and officers because of their frustration level. Management can be fair, yet can work with the officers a lot more. My co-workers as far as the guards – more... and other Field Supervisors worked closely together so issues can be resolved. The hardest part of the job was getting training officers who were stuck in their ways because they have been with the company so long. The enjoyable part of the job was acknowledging any officer for their diligent duty in the field. – less
