    Pros

    If you are full time, they enroll you in automatic dry cleaning reimbursement. Depending on what store you work at, you MAY end up working with friendly, intelligent, hardworking human beings

    Cons

    If you aren't full time, they give you terrible hours, and your schedule fluctuates. They give you extremely cheap quality, over sized suits and expect you to pay for the tailoring yourself. They never do pay raises unless they give you a new job title. The job requires that you stand for very long periods, so you may develop knee/foot problems. Lastly, considering how much money they make off charging high end retailers top dollar for sub par security service...you would think they at least offer benefits, paid vacation, but they don't. Nor do they pay their agents enough.

    Pros

    they paid on time,immediate supervisors were good.

    Cons

    there booths at the NY stock exchange got me sick cause they are never cleaned,they have you walking around 12 hours like sloths & you change positions every 45 minutes,so you don't go to sleep,even though there is no activity other than you rotating,to the next post.The account manager is a tyrant,he has no people skills.Good luck if you work with this company,leave soon though,cause they aren't worth it.

    I have been working at SOS Security

    Pros

    The roles of the officer at my site are fairly easy, I cannot speak for the other sites. Compensations is just ok, perfect for someone who is starting out in security or needs a job while they gain experience and look for something more permanent. There seems to be ways to move up in the company if you ask about it and show that you are ambitious enough to take on more responsibility

    Cons

    Managers trying to make all post orders uniform, but that doesn't necessarily jive with what the site wants for their security guard service.

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

    Pros

    If you know the right people, you could possibly succeed. Training is readily available, although I don't know how helpful it is. Great work/life balance but not for you if you're looking to get ahead.

    Cons

    The benefits are abysmal and I don't think that this company cares about its employees. Cannot break chain of command. Very rigid company.
