Operations and Management are highly unqualified and do not know where they stand on and truly unprofessional in their dealings with subordinates.
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  South San Francisco25 August 2013
Job is easy, but there is no place for advancement. Untrained security officers are advance to supervisor level without finding the best among the officers to handle the job. Supervisors are ignorant of their duties and responsibilities and most of the time arrogant and makes one's life terrible that good officers loose their enthusiasm and interest in their jobs and resign or quit.
Pros
Paid Lunch
Cons
No breaks, no medical and health insurance

A Good Place to work
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Sault Ste. Marie, ON16 May 2018
Working on the level with other Guards or solo was never a bad things, The friendliness and "Brother/Sister-in-Arms" bond you form is an excellent thing to have when you are faced with tasks that you may not know how to handle on your own.
Pros
Hardy Friendships and a sense of safeness

Camp security
camp guard (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB14 May 2018
Worked 3 rotations in a camp setting with this employer.
The group of guards I worked with were cliquish and if they didn't like you made sure you didn't last.

The work environments in the camp were gossipy and childish. There is 0 support from management.

The camp guards are treated like "mall cops" from the shift OC all the way up to the head of camp security.

The staff were nervous about losing the contract to a competitor so were telling the gate guards to include useless info in their log book in order to give the appearance of being busy.

Management and staff are very insecure individuals.

Pay was decent but one could get a labourer position with another camp employer and fair just as well or better
Pros
2 week rotations
Cons
rules for the sake of rules, a childish, gossipy environment
