I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time

Pros

- Freedom
- Flexible Schedule
- Car Allowance

Cons

- Salary
- Benefits
- New "flat" structure
- No field supervision

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The new flat model makes sense in theory, but in practice does not work. A branch manager should not be receiving calls at all hours of the night; there has to be some supervision. Compensation is way too low for the amount of work.

    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Guaranteed full-time shift with above average pay for position. I worked the night shift, so I was never bothered. In six months, I never saw my supervisor again after initial training, ever.

    Cons

    A little common sense needs to be used with regard to time-sheets and incident reports--it would be hard to find a company that complicates simple things so much.
    The company does screws nearly every employee out of a few hours pay right when they start by making them watch a bunch of training videos after filling out their tax forms.
    Fairly minimal training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some management that actually knows more than the people being hired, especially those positions dealing with computers and surveillance. Just because someone has been around along time does not qualify them to supervise others.
