I have been working at Wackenhut Services

Pros

Job are easily attainable with the company. You can move up quickly if you have a willigness to work and have good credientials.

Cons

The hours are demanding. Not a good company to work for as sallary in a midle management position. Better to be a site suppervisor of a good contract or a district manager, however midle management does all the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Send out more surveys to middle management on how to better improvise operations and efficiancy. Give support to the office staff. Remember bottom line is important but achieved thru the susess of the offices structure.

    Current Employee - Security Guard in Tucson, AZ

    I have been working at Wackenhut Services

    Pros

    Easy 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!

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    You 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.

    Current Employee - Nuclear Security Supervisor
    Current Employee - Nuclear Security Supervisor

    I have been working at Wackenhut Services

    Pros

    Wackenhut pays much better in comparison to other companies in the security field. Job security is very stable due to the nature of the nuclear world and today's security requirements, job security is guarenteed to anyone that wants to work. The job is not that hard and you do not need a college degree to get in the door.

    Cons

    The job is not that challenging and can be very mundane at times. Twelve and a half hour shifts and a schedule that rotates is very hard on any family life. There is very little job recognition for the employees and very little control over your own year end bonus. (The year-end bonus is based on a group or team effort instead of the individuals effort.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your people more recognition and the ability to achieve through some sort of bonus/recognition program.
