Productive Security Workplace with opportunity for Advancement
Badging Specialist (Current Employee), Seattle, WA – November 13, 2013
Pros: wealth of knowledge, international conversation
Cons: lack of communication with management, lack of compensation for work
8-12 hour shifts ensuring badge access for over 200 Amazon sites world wide. I learned to use Lenel as well as SharePoint and enhanced my Excel skills. Management tended to be a bit stand offish and hard to communicate with. As with many jobs there was a lot of gossip but mostly a very professional group to work with. The hardest part of my job is the – more... language barrier from site to site. I enjoyed the group that I worked with and constantly learning new things. – less
Security Guard (Former Employee), Mountain View, CA – June 13, 2013
Pros: free food
Cons: new rules implemented weekly
I would perform continuous exterior patrols around the 10 office buildigs which belong to Google located in Mountain View, Ca. I learned how to properly respond to medical emergencies. I learned how to respond to a typical door unlock. I learned how to take information to write detailed incident reports. The hardest part of my job was to stay busy when – more... things were slow. The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with Google employees on a daily basis. – less
Mobile Driver (Former Employee), Cupertino – June 10, 2013
Pros: great pay
Cons: this company is the worst at every thing else, you may have alot of exp and start @ $15 a hour, then they hire somebody with no exp and they get paid $17 a hour
The only thing good about this company is the pay. I worked their for over 5 yrs nothing but empty promises. All they care about is the company and they don't care about you. They will remind you of that almost everyday. With statements like if you don't like it there's the door or one of my favors is there's a million people who would love to have – more... your job. Yeah that maybe true but are they going to do as good of a job as you do.They tell you this in briefing's, in shift meeting or while your working. They promise you all kinds of stuff and deliver on none of them, It starts with the Owner of the company down to the Supervisors. This place is a revolving door. I've seen them hire 75 people in a month only to get rid of most of them in about 45 days. Then have to hire more people again. This company is a JOKE. If you DON'T believe me see for yourself. But just remember I told you so. lol – less
Security Ops Manager (Former Employee), CA – February 25, 2013
Pros: you get paid
Cons: over worked, company dont care about you etc
First off when I applied for the position they said they will contact you for interview they NEVER did! Their HR/recuritment Dept has no idea whats going on or who is hiring who. Your told your hired only to fine out your not hired then hired again. No knows whats what in the company.
My advice steer clean of this company. This is my own personal view – more... from what I have experienced with them! – less
Security Specialist (Current Employee), Seattle, WA – August 11, 2012
A typical day at work with Security Industry Specialists (SIS) is characterized by excellent customer service with holistic approach to service delivery.
To some extents management decision - making is consultative and participative, and management staff and employees exhibit professional behavior at all times.
As SIS personnel reflects cultural diversity – more... and works in a multicultural environment, I hope soon all employees will develop the awareness of cultural diversity, acknowledge its values and be capable to promote our organizational culture and avoid the clash between the latter and individual culture. – less
Security Guard (Current Employee), New York, NY – August 6, 2012
Pros: example: free lunches, etc.
Cons: example: short breaks, healthcare, etc.
A typical day of work is smooth but at the same time I'm always alert of my surroundings. As a security guard it's mandatory that I'm always aware of what's going. Doing that allows me to stay focus and keep me busy.
Market Loss Prevention Agent (Former Employee), Portland oregon – March 8, 2012
Pros: good pay and benefits for the industry
Cons: high turnover in management, managers do not stand behind their employees, allot of " clicks" in management and store agents
Was with them for a little over a year after being hired on from the third party contractor. Things were great most of the time. There was allot of turnover. Not sure why but people who were with the company for just a few months with less qualifications then most were being promoted to regional management positions.
Supervisor (Current Employee), Silicon Valley, CA – January 15, 2012
Cons: no loyalty to their employees.
If you want to be treated like a number instead of a valued employee, then this is the company for you, and if your a manager, don't expect any job security, most of them don't last a year. This place has so much turnover I can't imagine why anyone would want to work for them.
