    Pros

    Pay is better than most security contractors in the area. Flexible when time off is needed. Uniform provided.

    Cons

    Seem to keep people on who don't do their job (no call no shows). Lots of overtime (sometimes for months) when someone leaves an assignment. Not given any kind of weapon for protection on some assignments. Uniforms are cheap and malfunction easily.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of bad apples, visit sites more, have monthly meetings at each site.

    Pros

    Don't have anything good to say about this company. Worked for them for a 1.5 years and the last 7 months were really bad.

    Cons

    Don't treat employees with respect. Think they can do all correspondence on text and email. Communication is one way.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect. Don't talk down to them. The better you treat your employees the better their attitude.
