Pros

The company has some of the best assignments in the city. This is a great company to work for if you are ex-military or retired polce.

Cons

The company has too many supervisors but not enough workers, so workers are occasionally asked to work extra hours above 8 hours.

Advice to Management

Please closely monitor the number of hours worked in a two to three day spand. I've known of instances where employees have worked 16 hour days for several days in a row.

    Pros

    Worked 3 days a week for 45 hours, so I had 4 days off per week which was nice. 15 hour shift was sometimes very long, but was very nice to have 4 days off.

    Cons

    Management seemed disorganized and unreliable at times.

    Advice to Management

    Have better organization for middle management. Institute better and more modern uniforms.

    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 Management

    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.
