    Industry city- In theory it could be a great place to work, but the people in charge make it their duty to ensure you're miserable.

    Pros

    Laid back environment, good Co workers, there is lots to do to keep yourself busy.

    Cons

    Management in a complete joke. First of all I was hired as a supervisor but in reality had absolutely no kind of authority and was treated like a standard guard most of the time until it was time to blame somebody. Every time the company finds them self in trouble they hide behind a corporate office in California to postpone or slow down the process of investigation. Another big con is the fact that they concentrate on petty things like a tie being crooked or not wearing the right type of shoes instead of making sure that our client was being taken care of. I was written up 5 times for not clocking in properly by the director of security. I kid you not. Worst company I've ever worked for hands down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worry more about taking care of and satisfying your client instead of making sure we are constantly worshiping the psc logo.

    Pros

    great people to work with excluding the directors.

    Cons

    the directors are young and don't really have the leadership to run a security unit,lack of communication,the guards are treated like trash,no job security at all. even the regional director is rude and hangs the phone up on you who you want to make a complaint.when you call corporate there's never some one to talk to only the computer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    in order to have a good staff please gain the trust of your employees and make the job fun not a place where your employees don't wanna be

    I worked at Professional Security Consultants full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company has been at Union Station for less than one year so I feel its a great challenge for a career minded individual.

    Cons

    The organizational structure is very confusing at times. Basically feels like you are handed the keys to a brand new car without a test drive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you take over a contract start the first day the same as you would your last. Come in the door organized!

    Pros

    Job is very active outside

    Cons

    You honestly can't trust your teammates. Everyone rats on each other on everything just to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want people to stay you may want to hire professional supervisors that dont fart in your face all day and talk about their xxx life and how they get it on. It may also help if they stop letting formal employees park in the back of the top level parking structure and get it on with their girlfriend when I was told when hired thats not allowed on property. The shady activities I see take place at work has me looking for new work. I will never work for P.S.C again in my life and will never shop at a mall run by a P.S.C staff. If the shady dealings keep up I will seek legal advice.

    Pros

    Not much they hire you even if you are a deadbeat.

    Cons

    After reading some of the responses about PSC I would have to say they are very CORRECT. I would rate PSC a 1 star why? they literally have gone through as many people as a village you may live in that is a good size. Most of the employees are nice NOT ALL some are BULLY'S and throw their body weight around. some extremely short tempered some you would NOT want as friends outside of work some can be so nice on the phone two seconds later BULLY TIME that is NOT a joke or over reacted. Some its like walking on eggshells you say something wrong and forget it the remaining time you're with this person you wish you were any where but at work. Management knows about.this but they are so short handed unless something is done to you physically there is nothing they can do. The worst thing is they are extremely paranoid that you could get hurt if your not 100 percent. I tell these people NEVER underestimate another person by appearance this person may SURPRISE YOU..I've been with PSC a long time over 5 years so I do know this company rather well no I would not recommend this company to work for unless you're a BULLY or desperate for a job. Just be open minded and be ready to be degraded from time to time. GOOD LUCK! (You'll need it)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Praise long term employees it's ok to start out with low pay if you keep the employee pay as much as you would expect. PAY FOR HEATHCARE, CHILDCARE ELDER CARE VISON CARE offer 401 K. Make the top 10 BEST companies to work for. NOT the top ten employers NOT to work for. I think your turnover will fall if you treated the employees with respect which you do not. you have over 20,000 employees which have gone through PSC and it's not like your the largest Security firm in USA or you have been in the business for 100 years look at these reviews there are more negative then positive so this is not the only bad review in your list.

    Pros

    Direct deposit offered, pay is always on time, easy job, straight-forward. I keep all inquiries within the staff of the contract that I work, have never interacted with corporate. Young director but our relationship is awesome. His job is hard, I do my part so that I can be one less employee to worry about.

    Cons

    My specific site tends to hiring younger, less mature individuals with behavioral issues who have a thing for horsing around and destroying property (including the work truck, detex devices, office space, uniforms) or escalating situations, and it's tolerated.

    Pros

    Full time hours always there, cool special events available. Will find hours/work for you even if removed from accounts.

    Cons

    Low support from corporate, high turnover of guards, recycle guards that have been removed from one position to another. No real opportunities for advancement within region.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time into training and into growing relations between field & corporate employees. It sometimes feels like 2 completely different companies.
