Pros

Pay is in line with most companies. Steady shifts, hours, and post. Command structure is good (Sgt - Capt - Major ...) Office staff is sometimes overwhelmed but always supportive. Nice company to work for. Professional.

Cons

Pay is through debit card system instead of checks. Vacation only after 2 years. Uniforms are good but only two sets given for a five day work week initially, however, two more sets have since been issued.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Orlando branch is working well from the officer's perspective. The payroll debit card may work for those who do not have a checking account but direct deposit would be a better option. The debit card direct deposit is difficult to work with and delays pay and additional day.

    Pros

    lots of time to study. Great job to have if you plan to go to school at the same time. pick up hours at any site if you're okay making minimum wage.

    Cons

    Worst job ever. no opportunity to grow in the company. your pay will stay the same throughout your time with them, no raises. Supervisors only make 25-50 cents more.

    Pros

    Nothing really comes to mind other than the fact it was a 4/10 schedule giving you 3 days off a week.

    Cons

    First off, you are expected to drive all over the place. They don't reimburse you for gas mileage until you reach mile 60 in a day. Convienently, all your sites require you to drive 59 miles or less in a day. Secondly, the paychecks are mailed to you from Georgia, so you are constantly at the mercy of USPS to get paid as they do not offer direct deposit. Also, to get vacation time, you have to work there for 2 years and then you get something like a measly 3 days. They are not flexible with scheduling at all. They throw you here and there with no regard to sleep or family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your employees better, get direct deposit, start paying for gas mileage, and offer some real benefits to working there.
