    Pros

    Great sites available. Once you have established yourself you can move into a site Director's job. The pay is set by the client account you are assigned to.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of turn over in the guards. But that is the nature of the business and not specific to this company. The benefits are limited, but again that is normal in this industry.

    Pros

    salary was good, training was on going, benefit was good.

    Cons

    international security Management in Africa might be little different than here. In Africa, you are like a military police and you should protect the VIP and their property. Communicate well in radio and with security signs and languages.

    Advice to Management

    Continues training is advised to new employee.

    Pros

    Worked there almost 3 years, can not say there is a pro. I guess one some ways good other ways poor, unlikely to be fired. They will reduce your hours forcing you to quit.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities, if you do a good job in current role afraid they might upset clients if you leave for better opportunity within the company. Half the area managers can not manage employee's and schedules for officers who work at AHH sites, and the trucking sites. These same area managers are not truthful with officers and upper management. Merit raises don't happen management thinks it is a lot giving a .25 cent increase if your lucky to get that. Many officers have never received a raise who has been there a year or more who do deserve one. Much more I can say to the cons unable to do say on here, let's just say the cons out weigh the pro's. Pay is not fairly done for same role, pay is determined by site, rovers do not get the same pay either no fair way to be paid.

    Advice to Management

    V.P's and above, get out to the sites and talk to the security officers and field managers. You will find your area managers can't manage people and schedules are deceitful, and disrespectful. Conduct exit interviews with security officers yourself. Don't rely on what HR, branch and area managers tell you, they aren't being honest with you.


  11. Run would give negative stars but can't.

    Pros

    You get a regular check.

    Cons

    It was horrible. The management , directors and officers were petty and stupid. Health plan is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Please quit while you're ahead.
