    Hands down. The worst company I have ever worked for since they got this contract. I cannot wait til they leave. Any security comany will be better from this point on. Why, because I cannot see them do any worse.

    Pros

    Steady work, steady pay is about the extent of it.

    Cons

    Upper management don't care about its security team and they have fought every step of the way. We our just bodies to them contributing to their empire of wealth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FJC...I know you have some crony who reads this so here it is...you know what you are doing wrong and some are legalities by law but doesn't mean it is the right thing to do when hard working people are stuffing your wallets and we cannot see ours.

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of room for advancement and the executive management team is open to new ideas.

    Cons

    Offices are a little crowded, but they are remodeling, so that should improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a great job, but there is a little room for improvement. Plan for the future; learn the value of keeping your pipeline filled. Work smarter, not harder.

    I worked at FJC Security full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A great opportunity for people looking to break into the security field, they will help with training and certification, taking it out of your first paycheck. Union job, great benefits. Plenty of overtime

    Cons

    Many of people employed by the company do not speak english well enough to understand over the very outdated often times broken equipment. You were sometimes forced to take on overtime without notice, and pay rates were extremely low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more, and make sure that people who are employed by you are able to properly communicate and report things

    Pros

    I like having a steady schedule. I like the people at the site where I work. It is pleasant to go to work.

    Cons

    I really don't see a chance for advancement in this company. We were Cityguard and FJC bought out Cityguard but we still have the Cityguard sites & pay. We don't have a union like the REAL FJC. They also have better sites and better pay. Our management and supervisors don't care about us and they show it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management doesn't have to be mean or nasty to get their point across. I am a human being an also an adult. I give respect to the people that respect me. Respect the workers and they will work out better.
