Former Employee - Security Guard in Shelbyville, IN
Former Employee - Security Guard in Shelbyville, IN

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

Pros

Fulfilling work that is not to hard. If your looking for a simple job with a steady income that is not fast food Securitas is a good option. Much better than working fast food or retail.

Cons

Not very good pay. Slim chance for upward mobility. Not going to make a living off of it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you offered better pay you would probably have a better retention rate amongst your entry-level employees.

    No training, no equipment, little supervision, no competence.

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

    Pros

    There isn't much to do, and you might get to pursue your own interests while getting paid. You are able to catch the payroll mistakes online.

    Cons

    There isn't much to do, and you might not be allowed to do anything but stand there for 8-12 hrs. Payroll is often incorrect, even though I work the same 40 hrs every week. Management is incompetent and shady, be careful believing them, if they aren't wrong, they are lying. Example - You are not eligible for a raise in 90 days, they will say you are.
    You will be expected to treat the job as a career, as if there were a future in it for you. You will be expected to work 50-60 hour weeks, even if you are not available. You will be harassed if you don't comply. You will be expected to endure winter in January, outside for 8-12 hrs. You will be subject to the whims of the petty tyrants known as shift supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the management in the Dearborn, MI. office. Or at least check on them.

    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get security guard experience, since good company's want someone who knows what a guard's duties are and are not.

    Cons

    They don't get rid of the problem "children"-the no call/no shows, people with attendance issues, etc. They get rid of anyone who will work overtime covering for the "children". On my site I had 2-one who already had attendance issues at 2 other sites-including leaving the post unattended, showing photo's of clients site on Facebook and the other one, well they liked her Dad so she could get away with anything she wanted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope and pray that the "at will" laws in New York State never get changed-then you can keep the problem children around and the good people you get rid of "because you can't control them like the losers" can't sue for wrongful termination. Of course your treatment of your good people is why you can't hire anyone-forget Glassdoor-your reputation is well known without any online forum.
