Alright

Custom Protection Officer (Former Employee) Bedford, VA

ProsMy supervisors and co workers were mostly decent people inbetween jobs, alot of ex military so it was familiar to me.

ConsHours, sometimes a contract would be unmanned because he unarmed guard quit, or other such common reasons. Not lack of hours, but the over abundance of them

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    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.
