Not the best choice but better than unemployment.

I worked at Critical Intervention Services full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You get time off to pursue a college education. Plenty of opprotunities for overtime. If worded right, experience can be used for an impressive resume. Almost impossible to lose your job (literally just show up) due to the bottom line and client mandates of personnel to be on-duty at any given time.

Cons

Completely random weekly schedule; you won't know what site you're working, what days you're working it or what time you'll be working until the day before the end of the current week-long schedule. There's a clique and if you aren't in it, they'll try to make you quit via the schedule and bullying. Heavily inflated and unjustified sense of self-worth and importance; they'll try to brainwash you into believing you're saving the world from terrorism when in reality you're just a glorified security guard with a firearm.

Advice to Management

Solidfy the schedule. Eliminate the clique.

    Pros

    Decent pay compared to other security jobs. You will definitely get all the hour you want

    Cons

    Management is terrible, you are just a means of getting greater contract money out of TECO. There are not enough people to fill all the spots, therefore you will work 60-70 hours a week quite often. Everyone at the company, management mostly, likes to pretend that they are some kind of "super security contracting operators" when in reality this is just a security guard job much like the old guy who sits at the bank. None of the higher ups can take any constructive criticism or any semblence of input from the guys in the field. If you have a complaint or an idea of how to make the facility you are at more secure keep it to yourself, they don't care how experienced you are or how much you have done in the world, they just want you there as window dressing to give people a false sense of security.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you are security guards and not Delta Force

    Pros

    I actually left in 2009. Without a doubt, the most rewarding experience ever in my professional career. The atmosphere at KKP/CIS was not only professional, but also maintained a level of commitment to its members for both professional and personal growth. The other employees actually became like family. The job fulfilled a sense of purpose like never before. In fact, nothing like it has happened since.

    Cons

    At the time of my employment, the company was small and benefits were expensive. Simply had a family that needed benefits was the only reason of my departure. I very routinely wish I was still there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting the good fight, you make a difference.
