    Former Employee - Security Guard in Romeoville, IL

    I worked at Metro One Loss Prevention full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very simple and easy job (unarmed security), site managers (I ended up with 2 on separate occasions) were easy to get alone with and treated their team with respect, site managers worked around my college schedule, In the 2 years I was there I saw 2 people who worked hard get serious promotions.

    Cons

    Bad pay (unarmed security) - $9.50/hour, no benefits when I worked there (before AHCA took hold), some people who work security have big egos so personalities were easy to conflict with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees a livable wage

    I have been working at Metro One Loss Prevention part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy Job for most part. My job is to simply check bills at Home Depot. People I work with are very nice.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Let's start with the pay. The pay is very very low for the title you have as a "security guard". Minimum wage start. Don't expect any raises unless you've been with the company for 3 years (I have not). Next, the management. Wow, I can't even describe fully how unorganized and unprofessional the management is. When it comes to scheduling, your lucky if you go the week without them calling you at least 6 times A DAY! They constantly call. If they need someone to work at 6am, they'll call you at 4:50am, if you don't answer, they'll call 4 more times at least and then try your house phone. Sometimes they schedule too many people for a post. That's where favoritism plays out. If they like you, they'll let you stay and get payed, if they don't, they'll tell you to just go home. And of course, if they mess up, ITS YOUR FAULT! If they mess up the scheduling (which happens extremely frequently) they'll blame it on you. Once they scheduled me on a day I was off, they called me an hour and a half AFTER I was supposed to be there and told me that I wasn't at my post. I simply replied that I wasn't scheduled for that day, nor was I at all notified that they might need me to work that day. They just put my name in there and never once mentioned it. I then speak to the boss who screamed at me and then transferred me to another employee who heard me out and "understood". After that, didn't hear from them in about 3 weeks. Then I call and finally get back on schedule. This is what you'll deal with if you take this job. Another thing, good luck calling out. A very close friend of mine past away and the wake arrangements were made only for a single day, in which I was working, so I called out and explained my situation. They reply "well its not a close family member so we need you to work.". WHAT? I blew my top. Your telling me I can't pay my respects to my close friend who died because I need to "stand guard" at a door in a Home Depot?? Are you serious?? This is what you'll deal with if you take this job. BEWARE

    I have been working at Metro One Loss Prevention full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Steady income, most of the truck drivers that I interact with on a daily basis are nice and friendly. Good job for those who just got there security license

    Cons

    The pay sucks. Management is horrible and they treat there "employees" like carp. No life and work balance they will work you to death. Home depot sees how we get treated and so they want to get rid of Metro-One and just hire us to work directly for them. You get no benefits and you work with a lot of two face people and if somebody submits a complaint to the company and it happened on one of the days that you worked they'll just tell you that there's a investigation going on but won't tell you why until it's over and they won't tell you there's a investigation going on until you show up for work and management will have one of your co-workers tell you to go home instead of them which is not your co-workers job to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about you actually do your job for once and don't treat your employees like carp and give us some benefits and also STOP HIRING SO MANY NEW PEOPLE HIRE THEM AS PIER DENIM and don't get made when somebody tells you they can't do two doubles in a row. Also it is our right to know why a investigation is going and don't wait until after it's over to tell us. Oh yeah HR sucks big time!

    Pros

    None that have any bearing on the day to day operations of this company.

    Cons

    Bait and switch staring salary, unskilled management, no benefits, OT vacation... expected to do managements job for them. Overly burdensome processing procedure... I could go on, ad infinitum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find another area to work in, and get some ethics.
