Think twice and act once

Peon (Current Employee)
Gadsden, AL

I have been working at Wackenhut Services

ProsBetter pay than other similiar type local companies. The uniforms allowance is decent also.

ConsManagement treates entry-level individuals like they dont matter. They need to have better health insurance. Training is terrible. There is little chance of advancement within the company at the local level. No encouragement by supervisors to contact anyone about other positions within the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that the entry level employees are what help you keep the contracts. If you would treat the employees with the same respect that you expect from them, adequetly train them for their particular positions, and allow them to do their job without micro-management, you would be surprised at the skilled and dedicated individuals you have working for you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
