    I have been working at Puget Sound Security full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It really is a decent company and have worked around many scheduling issues I have head.

    Cons

    Like many contract security companies, there is little to no room for advancement, and since contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, the pay rates are not exactly the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more consistent with scheduling, and in what you quote officers as their payrate.

    I worked at Puget Sound Security full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice, black uniforms. Plenty of hours. The sewed on badge is convenient-no more losing or broken badges. Had some sites that were close to home. Was good work when I didn't actually need to call the company for assistance.

    Cons

    Horrible, narcissistic management. This company is "owned" by several people so you do not feel like you are working for a corporation. Instead you feel disrespected and always on edge.

    This company provides NO TRAINING at sites and yet has no problems yelling at you if you make mistakes. When you do call and ask for assistance you are often given sarcastic responses to your questions. You are then blamed if anything goes wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the narcissism. Stop bullying guards. Stop intentionally intimidating guards who who voice legit complaints about the toxic work management environment or the chronic miscommunication due to managers not being effective leaders or communicators.

    Stop bullying guards by taking them off the schedule for little or no reason. Stop writing inflammatory or bullying emails to guards. Stop demanding on a whim that guards travel all the way to Bellevue for meetings with management when you don't even answer phone calls, emails or provide site training.

    Stop writing "success articles" when you don't even practice what you preach. The company has a really bad rep for mistreating guards.

    I worked at Puget Sound Security full-time

    Pros

    The only reason to work for this company is the measly pay checks, they will also give you steady hours but will screw you over at any other chance they get

    Cons

    The communication with management is shaky at best, they will also fire you without notice for stuff that you dont do, dont work for them unless you're desperate
