    Awesome Place to work!

    Security Officer (Current Employee) Beaverton, OR

    ProsThey offer health benefits...which most security companies don't.
    People in the office are super friendly and helpful
    They've always found sites close to where I live, so I don't have to commute

    ConsPay sure could be better

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore consistent training would be good

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Where do I start?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Beaverton, OR

    ProsPlenty of overtime if you need it.

    Great co-Workers.

    Decent clients with the exception of Safeway.

    ConsHorrible hourly wages.

    Management is very incompetent causing them to lose clients.

    Little to no training especially with the Armed Officers.

    First Response doesn't care about your personal life especially as a Patrol Officer, they will call you in on your day off expecting you to come in.

    Low standards when hiring employees. They will hire anybody.

    Cheap uniforms if you're an Onsite Security Officer. All the Patrol Officers get 5.11 pants, shirts and jackets while the Onsite Officers get the cheap stuff.

    The patrol cars are all worn out, a few with transmission problems. The computer systems rarely work and it takes a while for them to fix anything.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart paying better, buy better uniforms, fix your patrol cars, and start realizing that your security officers do have lives outside of work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    security is a survival job, take it when you need it.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosalways seem willing to find you work.
    will try to send you to just one location.

    Conspoor pay.
    expect you do know how to do your job to the letter with only 2 hours of training. typically this works but there are sites that need way more than 2 hours.
    horrible scheduling. granted ive never seen a security company that had good scheduling.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
