    A good temporary job

    Security Officer (Unarmed) (Current Employee)
    Harrisburg, PA

    ProsThe management is really friendly and high speed. Military friendly. Client for where I worked was quite easy going to. As long as you do your job, show up on time, then you are good to go.

    ConsOnly downside is that depending upon your location, it can be quite boring/ monotonous. Pay is what it is for a temporary job, but quite better than most. A good job until you find a real job, or want climb the management ladder.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone really. The management is doing their job very well, and the company is very well put together with lots of resources, and online training classes.

    Prosbosses communicate they try to work with you, hold thier managers accountable. Did not make big deal of a mistake I made

    Conspromotions a little to clicky

    Advice to Senior Managementpay needs to account for new minimum wage. Soon alot of gaurds will make less than minimum. Soon flipping burgers at macdonalds will pay more. Just think all that free cholesterol.
