    Pros

    Good Interviewer. Back stabbers at locations

    Cons

    Can't fill the contracts with guards they sign up for. Low pay for putting your life on the line. No OT Ridiculous uniform requirements (different outfit for every different contract)

    Advice to Management

    Got to have management, before you can give them "Advice". Had titles of Management, but had no clue or how to have proper coverage for events.

    Pros

    They schedule things around your work schedule.

    Cons

    There are no reliable hours. They will work you for as long as you let them with no breaks. Even when the factory that you work at gives DK more money for the people that work there cause they do a good job do not expect a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and pay more.

    Pros

    Generally nice coworkers. Can be fun at times would be a good company if we were allowed to protect ourselves.

    Cons

    Management does not care about you or your safety. Not allowed to defend yourself. Cant carry pepperspray or anything even though your a security guard.

    Advice to Management

    let us carry something to defend ourselves even if that means extra training. Dont leave us in a uniform an badge without any means to protect us.

    Pros

    Very easy work. Anyone could do this job. It requires no experience. It is also a very good job for a student as there is a lot of down time.

    Cons

    Everything. This was literally the worst job I have ever had in my life. The management at all levels of this company is inadequate to deal with the needs of the company. They also just happen to not care about the employees. I had several enterprising colleagues who made good suggestion who were subsequently given different shifts so they'd not have the chance to communicate anymore. Extra work or GOOD work is not rewarded or acknowledge. Management at ALL levels is incompetent. (Seniority is the best way to be manager here and many of them are bad with people and most skills). The morals at this company are low. Giving this company a contrast is basically just admitting you want to get robbed. No shows and poor workmanship is the norm here. No chance for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    You could try caring about the company or your employees. You could try punishing no shows or incompetent workers and rewarding solid workers. Treat your employees as people and treat your clients with respect - you do neither. Thanks for the motivation to get out and get an MBA.

    Pros

    Part time work 10 hour shifts at the Capitol Buildings in Lansing . Can get called in to fill a shift with an abscent worker

    Cons

    Cant get 40 hours and not even 30 most weeks. No advancement opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Reward loyal workers who come in when called to fill an opening with more hours. Create a team of people so that there is not so much turnover.

    I worked at DK Security

    Pros

    It was easy for the most part.

    Cons

    Lied to me about pay on multiple occurances. Unappreciated... It wasn't worth the $9/hr to even just sit there.

    Advice to Management

    Attitude adjustment and moral evaluation...

    Pros

    If you are lazy and do not want to come to work on time then DK is the company for you. They will work around your class' schedual, so long as you do not want many hours or will work 4 hour shifts.

    Cons

    No communication with upper management to speak of. In real terms there is no chance of advancement or improvement. This company talks as if it is a High Security company, but in reality there is little if any training or little to no incentive yo gain any usefull training. They talk about conduct and employee accountability, but do not address no shows, constantly being up to an hour late and not paying when you have to cover someone that did not show.

    Advice to Management

    Take a real interest in running the company and stop pretending that you provide anything to the employees. The mindset of " it is not my job" starts in the head office and flows down. You can not operate with the attitude that if an uniform is there then all is right and as it should be. When you acquire a contract with staff in place take advantage of them, not chase them out.

    Pros

    Easy to learn and perfect for those who enjoy dealing with people

    Cons

    Hard to get full time position Part time has no benefits whatsoever If your relief doesn't show up, you are still working until they can get someone in

    Advice to Management

    When you get new people on a site, don't give them more hours than the ones who have been working there when the ones working there has had their hours taken away. That is not taking care of your people.
