that's all it has going form. You sit around 8 hours a day watching cameras. The people i work with are cool but if you want a productive job where you don't feel like wasting time, this ain't it.
Pros
good pay
Cons
boring

I was treated with such disrespect I would never recommend this company to anyone I care about. The management staff is very rude and unorganized. They are beyond unprofessional and see nothing wrong with their actions ever.
Pros
None
Cons

Relaxed environment where employees can wear uniform to work. "They believe in and live their mission statement every hour of every day. The work culture is super fun! This company has great core values and plenty of room for promotions.".

Securitas is a reliable company as far as you can depend on a job. I would not consider this company a good place to continue your career. There is really not a lot of room for growth.

The application and interview process went smoothly. There were some red flags during the general training all private security is given before being assigned and then further trained at a post. We were given a sign in sheet that was visible to everyone at the training event where they expected us to write down our social security numbers. The trainer said something that implied it was acceptable to use force. Which is almost never acceptable for unarmed security to do, as there is no ability to make a arrest. I challenged this and was asked if I actually wanted the job. My first post was night shift at a hotel. The person who trained me did about half the things in the written documentation. The hotel had two people working the front desk, but the person who trained me told me to do room service and baggage handling (which was not in the documentation) so they would not complain. One of the front desk employees told me they fired security guards about every two weeks. The local Securitas branch office would accommodate this so as not to cause problems on their national contract. My second and last posting was at a data center that employed around 50 guards. I was given a contract that said I could not have any type of business relationship with any of the clients customers or suppliers, effectively signing my ability to use the internet and phone in my personal life away. Someone was fired every 1-2 weeks. During the week long training I was never given a chance to read the 500 pages of documentation to perform the job. The night shift was easy but I was constantly pressured - more...

You are nobody. Once you are put in a system, you are expected to show up and repeat. Any questions or explanation is considered subordination. It's a ghetto company with absolutely no vision and the mentality to bite more than it can chew. The DCJS training is fake, self promotion and complete BS. STAY AWAY!

Plenty of time to do your own thing and study. It should be used as a stepping stone. The majority of the time you are sitting down and the white lights and walls feel claustrophobic at times. Advancement is slim to none and you are given a schedule that may or may not work for you. Employees tend to be nice. Site management jumps between distant and overbearing. No vacation days at all after a year. You get a check instead for the 5 days you would have been on vacation. Medical is standard for security. I do not make enough to survive on my own. Full-time here is considered 32 hours a week and management is very, very strict with overtime.
Pros
Lots of study time
Cons
Isolation. Subpar pay.

Depending on the job site, fairly easy work. Lots of walking if required. Can get boring if you work on a site by yourself. Be attentive to your surroundings.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons

Good company that has good contracts, however there is disorganization regarding compensation and benefits. It was extremely difficult for employees to contact HR directly to resolve issues that arise.
