    I worked at American Security Group


    - Opportunities to get more hours in schedule
    - Multiple shifts to choose from (morning, midday, night)
    - Very lax, sedentary environment


    - Very dysfunctional management, virtually no communication between superior officers
    - Overtime/ holiday pay sometimes neglected in payroll
    - Scheduling sometimes only allowed for 8 hours in between shifts
    - Very poor notification system of new company policies/ schedule changes
    - Employment tends to resemble a "revolving door," many newcomers are usually fired within the first month

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave appropriate passdowns to whoever is relieving you. When information is kept from other supervisors, it produces a vacuum that will inherently downgrade the performance of the next shift. Also, it breeds both ignorance and arrogance, neither of which are acceptable or applicable in a healthy working environment.
