    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 for more than a 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.

    I worked at SOS Security part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good hours most of the time, friendly employees, not physically or mentally demanding

    Cons

    On call 24/7 for low pay. Must use own car to get to sites/ no reimbursement for gas or tolls. Constantly told to go to sites that were 2 hours away without any additional compensation for the inconvenience. I was harassed and told I might not have a job when I come back from my honeymoon even though I told them about the wedding plans in my interview. Managers play favorites for best crew chiefs so if the manager doesn't like you, enjoy your smaller paycheck because you will be sitting out a lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your racist managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the good workers
