Current Employee – been working at Wackenhut
Pros – i work with some good folks. site isn't far from home.
Cons – The managment will lie to you to satisfy their needs. don't be fooled by the whole "Custom Protection Officer" thing; they carry an old 6-shooter and wear a Barney Fife uniform. Chances are they won't send you to a armed guard site, but will send you to get licensed to cary anyways. Why you ask? so when they bid on a contract they can say "we have this many CPO's ". Then when they get the contract, they'll keep you at your miserable, low paying site and hire new fools.
Advice to Senior Management – Since most of the managment positions are held by over-the-hill, geriatric has-beens, I recommend they do they company a favor and check themselves into the nearest nursing home and simply wait to die. Give some young blood a chance!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
