    I worked at Vector Security full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for VECTOR SECURITY was an awesome experience for me. I actually saved a few people by dispatching EMT and FIRE DEPT on two separate occasions. Very uplifting for me to help

    Cons

    ON CALL PHONE everyone gets a chance to get that duty ONCE per month. Seemed like my turn was all the time. Very hard to do after working 3 day 12HR shifts in a row. And the day comes for my two days off and one of my coworkers call out. No breaks. And spending the night in inclement weather to help man the phones for those that couldn't make it in and still have to do my shift! Very hard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working twelve hour shifts are indeed hard to do. There should perhaps be some type of incentives to help shifts change properly. No one should EVER have to stay one second longer after completing a 12hour shift!

    They are easy to get hired for if you have a clean background. They ask basic questions. They hire many people and see who will stick. No the the place I would want to work for unless I wanted to sell a lot and get paid a little.

    Interview Questions
