    great security company and benefits

    Former Employee - Security Officer in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Security Officer in New York, NY

    I worked at Andrews International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This company is established nationwide. As a result, many positions are available. I had a 401k and medical coverage with this company. There was also overtime! not a lot of security companies in New York City offer what this company offers.

    Cons

    In my opinion, the cons are very much the same as any security company... there is little to no room for growth or promotion, you are essentially expendable. If you are an ambitious person who likes to feel like their work is making a difference in the world, then you will not like working for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good employer makes the employee feel as though they are treated with respect. A paycheck is not equal to a "thank you." A paycheck is merely a contractual obligation; you give a paycheck in exchange for work. Effective communication between a company and its employees can increase efficiency.

    Close up shop while you still can. Not only were employees walking, so we're the clients.

    I worked at Andrews International part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Above minimum wage pay. Offers flexibility in going to school because you have 24 hours of scheduling for many posts.

    Cons

    Your enjoyment often has to do with what account or post you get sent to. Some accounts treat you like a robot or with little regard. Other accounts may treat you better and offer more interesting job tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your officers get paid correctly. There is nothing worse than dealing with HR for weeks to compensate for hours worked that your supervisor promised would appear next check.
