Alright

Custom Protection Officer (Former Employee)
Bedford, VA

I worked at Wackenhut

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.
