Current Employee - Security Officer in Denver, CO

I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

pay is good depending the site you are assigned to, lots of overtime, job security is pretty good, ease to reach management, very easy job.

Cons

Health Insurance package isn't comprehensive, the officer pays through the nose and receive very little in return.

Benefits may vary depending on the post, PTO is only through the site if the client offer it, management don't bother sometimes to check on you, little opportunity for growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer a more comprehensive health insurance package to Officers, this will increase productivity and decrease turnover rate.

    Pros

    Great training program for getting into firefighting.

    Cons

    Huge difference between firefighters and security. Both in pay and respect. Both had the same training and did the same job, but Security was always subject to higher turnover whereas the Firefighters were protected (Catapillar, Peoria, IL)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit treating your security like part time help.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
  2. Lack of knowledgable upper management

    Pros

    Large company with a large serviceable footprint.

    Cons

    Lack of value selling, lack of support staff for Branch Managers, very poor hiring techniques, lack of working relationships between Securitas divisions, Promotion opportunities to "yes men" only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp your regions. WAY to much money Is siphoned from the branches making it nearly impossible to stay competitive.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO
