it’s good
love the people i work with and the sites i get to work at. pay could be better though. for someone who’s licensed, i’d expect to be paid more than someone unlicensed ($17/hr)

Hiring policy is to “exit” employees before probation so they don’t pay benefits. It’s a revolving door and they over-work employees. Many unhappy people and no long-term ones. Says a lot for a thirty year old company. Co-owned and very poorly managed.

Job satisfaction reflects your level of effort.
As someone who has worked here for about 1 year, I can say from experience that this is a job that gives back whatever you put in. If you take initiative and show a real interest in the security of clients, you will be put at more important sites and recognized and rewarded accordingly with the amount of effort you put in. If you show that you are a valuable team member, management goes the extra mile to accommodate shifts, and even your preference in high or low action sites. This is a job where you primarily work on your own, so you have to be self-motivated.I have worked at both static sites, and as a mobile driver. both can be great options. Mobile offers more variety and keeps you on the move with things to do. Static sites are slower paced

Easy job, pay lacking. Owners don’t care.
Easy job if you can stay out of the office, turn around time for you to quit if your in the office is six months. Company had some decent people in the office the owner that starts with “A” is a big reason why lots leave. He thinks he is the best at the job, he is never wrong and micromanaged you at every step. Pay is lacking, many people doing the same job and their pay rates vary. The owners do not care about their staffs mental health only the mighty dollar, they have a revolving door with their patrol drivers due to the work load they have, they don’t get their breaks that they are entitled to and are not delivering the patrols require to their clients. All in all if you need to use them as a jumping stone do it, but don’t make a career and a job out of footprints security. Toxic work culture for sure.

Interview questions

During my interview, they asked if I was comfortable working "shifts". Then when they started a 24-hour dispatch centre I inquired about extra pay for night shifts (a very common practice to attract people to those positions). I was told that during the interview "we stated you would do shift work so we don't have to pay you over time". They eventually offered $1 hour more to night shift workers. Total joke.
