    Pros

    It's a Job and you get experience working in state buildings.

    Cons

    Low pay, low staff, lots of promises oh they charge you for everything. Employees are in debt. with the company before they step on to their first post.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has a lot of tricks up their sleeves. Everyone who starts will go a month and a half with out a check and once they get a check it will be for $0.00 after they collect their money for your uniform and training and parking and anything else they want to charge you. Forget about a budget they are constantly changing you pay rate.

    Pros

    This company has great values. It is hard to find a company that actually cares for their employees as much as NHSS does. They seem to take an interest in their employees and continually invest in their employees to help improve their performance.

    Cons

    None that I have found so far. Of course, more pay, more benefits, and more perks would always be awesome. Disney trips for everyone?!? :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    It gave me a reason to get out of bed until a better security job opened.

    Cons

    The pay and micro management of staff is unbelievable. I would not recommend this company to anyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop low balling contracts like the DMV and promising guards good pay.

    Pros

    nothing really. Maybe the pay if you are desperate, it's a small company so growth is limited. The owner micro-manages everything, so look forward to that.

    Cons

    The insurance used to be free, not anymore. The training used to be free, not anymore. They usually get contracts by lowballing and paying the officers really low salaries. The turnover rate is really high. They never stand behind their officers. They talk about a balance in customer service and security, sometimes people act like idiots then complain about you. Just the nature of the job, warning don't do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop babying people with a kindergarden point system.
