Not treated fairly

Security Guard (Current Employee)

ProsAt the site that I used to work for Receptionists and Supervisors receive good compensation

ConsAt the site that I used to work for employees who are not Receptionists or Supervisors, specifically Security Guards do not receive good compensation for their working conditions. These Security Guards have to stand throughout an 8 hour shift with short breaks which is difficult for almost anybody. It also seems as though favoritism is strong with seniority not valued as much.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement need to pay Security Guards the same pay rate as Receptionists and value seniority more.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
