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

    Pros

    It's a job, very little pay but still you can have a job as a security officer.

    Cons

    Hiring process is ridiculous. Tons of useless paperwork, Plus you need to pass background check, polygraph test, drug test and then....you can enjoy a "wonderful" job for $10/hr.

    No raises! ( what a shame, lipman for you and the rest of your Guardsmark buddies)
    Very poor benefits
    No room to advance!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    tell lipman that officer will always hate guardsmark.
