I worked at Valor Security Services full-time for more than a year

Pros

Having 20+ years experience in Security work, Conflict Manager at 8 years old and various other security work their after, I was completely satisfied with my employment at Valor Security Services. Coming off a two year off and on employment stint it was nice to have full time 40 hour work. The job is what you make of it, mainly being customer service oriented; I had no problem with meeting and greeting all the wonderful people who frequented the Tucson Mall. I would highly recommend this company for anyone looking to a future in Law Enforcement as you do get first hand experience working with the Police. Just remember, “Discretion is the better part of Valor.” and VALOR the word itself means “Strength of mind or spirit that enables a person to encounter danger with firmness and personal bravery."

Cons

Favoritism runs ram-pit with the upper managment.

    I worked at Valor Security Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    direct deposit, uniforms paid for. every once in a while over time is cleared, professional appearance , contracted through Simon malls. not really much else.

    Cons

    no management accountability, management not properly trained, they disregard of sexual harassment policy's, they disregard labor laws, they refuse to assist local law enforcement, the ignore equal treatment and rights. the location to which i was employed and resigned from on the 6th of Nov 2012 was a hostile work environment to say the least. this gross misuse of authority creates not just an unsafe work environment but an unsafe place to shop and work as a tenant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get new management for the west town mall location, or at least hold them accountable.

    Pros

    Actual work, actual job, actual duties are very easy. Opportunity to meet really good people employed by large stores in the mall for an excellent job move with great companies.

    Cons

    Supervisors, Assistant Director and Director are typically ignorant people. Most of them think this job has something to do with law enforcement or the military and the job has nothing to do with either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The perspective of the Supervisors, Assistant Director and Director of the job having anything to do with law enforcement or the military makes them think they can issue orders. People, this is no more than a typical business contract and should be run as such. They live in fear of losing their job because they don't know what they are doing. They get no training from Valor Corporate to help them know how to manage the contract, people, processes or functions. They also fear they will be the cause of losing the contract so instead of improving their people they make it their personal mission to "beat" on the employees in every form imaginable. For some reason they seem to think this is the correct management posture to use with their employees and all that does is alienate their people, causing distrust and motivates people to look for a better job.
