Horrible employer

Security Officer (Current Employee)
Lebanon, OH

ProsJob is too easy, doesn't take much training.

Consno raises, hard to advance, management is unprofessional and don't care about employees. Pay and benefits are horrible. I was deployed to Afghanistan with the National Guard while employed and company failed to hold my slot when I returned.

Advice to Senior ManagementCare about employees and offer room for advancement and raises.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
