"You get what you pay for!"

Security Guard (Current Employee)
Tucson, AZ

I have been working at Wackenhut Services

ProsEasy place to work if you have homework. Clients have no idea that services are just for show and most guards get to watch Hulu during shifts. Supervisor at my location loves to bring in some home brew which really makes working for this company a blast!

ConsYou have to wear a uniform. Must be willing to put up with other peoples mistakes i.e. "I forgot my office key and ID, can you open it for me?"

Advice to Senior ManagementYou really shouldn't cut peoples wages in this field of work. Use those community college skills and just lay one guy off! Why have the entire entire crew bent when one guy could have paid the price for all.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
