The job itself is security as any other, there are good posts and horrible posts. The ports tend to have more of an extreme difference between them. Colleagues are great when/ if you get the chance to interact with them. You can easily find yourself stood in the extreme elements all day while others are inside. Management make a lot of promises that are too good to be true. No schedule, you are called in a few days in advance, no guarantee of hours- some management will tell you different, no benefits- they were supposedly setting them up, you are asked to volunteer your time for 5 hrs a month for training, when you are hired you will be run around every few days to drop paperwork or pick something up or meet with someone for licensing etc, then you will be put into training with NPSS for a day and not paid, you will be put into orientation for the client and not paid, you basically spend a lot of time getting set up for them. Then they may not call you for weeks. I was in high hopes of this company being better than some of the less reputable companies in the city. I was wrong. If you are retired and not dependent on hours or any sort of schedule than this company may be for you. Expect to be paid at the low end of their posted pay rate. Part of the management team has a big mouth so don't expect your personal information to stay private. Uniform doesn't include pants or steel toed boot allowance. Most unprofessional company I have ever worked for.
No schedule, no benefits, volunteer a lot of time for nothing, can't trust management.
