    It's better than the rest

    Custom Protection Officer (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Wackenhut


    Pros: Pay is fair for the industry status quo, Plenty of hours. Nice equipment… Cons: Sometimes a 60 hour week is the norm, Management retracts their policies whenever it pleases the client and leaves you hanging.… Advice to Senior Management: New management or intense supervision of current management is needed.
