    I have been working at Covenant Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is a bonus. There are opportunities available to those who wish to advance in the company.

    Cons

    There are few morale incentives. The employees do not feel appreciated. This causes them to have less patience with the general public.
    Everyone must pay for their own daily parking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentives really do help the employees strive to be better. When an employee is verbally recognized by their supervisor and management in front of their peers, the acknowledgement encourages both the recognized employee and the other employees to be more conscientious.

    Pros

    None the worst company to work for.I cannot think of a positive thing to say but a complete waste of time to even apply.

    Cons

    Worst company to work for. They do not care for their employees. They use you and do not care if you have a family. They expect you to work 24/7.

    I worked at Covenant Services part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The only pro about this company is that they are willingly to take anyone that has a clean record and that is able to pass their tests.

    Cons

    This list applies to SFO only:
    1) Expensive Employee Parking
    2) Low Employee Morale
    3) Salary is way too low for the Bay Area
    4) Work Schedule
    5) The work training is a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The whole system at San Francisco International is broken. You need to fix employee morale ASAP.

    Pros

    The pay is great as a job. You get to meet people from all walks of life. If you are a people person you will love this job.

    Cons

    The office politics, the co-workers and mangers make the job harder than it has to be. Everyone you have to worry about getting fire. It is a very stressful job, it is not a very good career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about making yourself good, and care more about you worker/ grunts.

    Pros

    Flexible and a joke of a job.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. How can a company expect an employee to pay bills with such a horrible pay and no upward mobility in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of training. No education. Reevaluate your management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize the skill set of your employees and really value the hard workers that you have who actually work.

    I worked at Covenant Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great pay for someone with no experience.

    Cons

    Covenant use to pay well with benefits when the company was young. Now there is nothing but cuts to save money so the uppers can pocket the rest. The pay is unfair for the work that is done. The pay differences for screener, leads, and supervisors are out of line as in the higher pay you do less. The raises are a joke and so is the Union behind it. Company is very unfair with a lot of work issues and make sure you hire a lawyer to fight against the clowns that are in HR and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees and they will do the same for you.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Great Benefits, Pretty Easy Work. It's like working for the TSA, except it was a private company under federal contract.

    Cons

    Rude airline passengers, fear of losing job for failing audits, ALWAYS BEING AUDITED. Limited room for advancement. The company is private and the union representing the workforce BLOWS!

    Just all around bad company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check on lower management! An then you will see you'll need new management.
