Pros

They have contracts all over, somewhere for everybody. The job as a security officer is a professional one. Working for a company that contracts out officers is good for individuals who are retired or for those just starting out in the job market. Of course if you are a student, this company has all shifts available, mostly evenings, midnights and unfortunately all the new hires and the relief positions work every weekend.

Cons

I'm sure every contract is different, however I haven't seen where they rotate schedules so officers at least get every other weekend off. The uniform issuance could be a little more professional. It is quite difficult to get properly outfitted with the number of uniforms needed. Contract security does have benefits available(medical, dental, short term disability and life insurance). The hourly rate is just that, the hourly rate with no yearly raises or bonuses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please consider rotating shifts Where the officers get every other weekend off. Uniform needs go unanswered.
