Do not work for them.

S/O (Current Employee)
Floral Park, NY

I have been working at FJC Security full-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible with shifts and locations

ConsPay sucks - the account reps are the ones making all of the money. Dispatch and management give you an extremely difficult time when you need a day off. As a whole I find them to be extremely unorganized. Phone calls and text messages are NEVER acknowledged or returned. Pertinent issues involving missing pay, etc, are not addressed and solved in a timely manner. They trip over each other when a crisis arises, but then expect you the guard to solve their problems that they created, by calling you to help them out at the last minute, because one of their account reps forgot or failed to sufficiently plan his guard assignments.

Advice to Senior ManagementPrioritize your daily tasks and workload. Learn better organizational and time management skills. Do not be so quick to make a guard responsible or accountable for his/her "mistakes by suspending them or not giving them hours," but then consistently turn the other way when your account reps constantly screw up. This company lost a major, multi-million dollar account recently. Do not work for them.

ProsThey pay weekly and have direct deposit, they are based in NY so we never see management, the follow most rules for government contractors.
