    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is not a hard job to do and you can learn a lot from guards that work at different sites.

    Cons

    There are no raises unless you go to another site that pays more. Moving up in the company is not easy as well because management is not willing to move people around.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified security guards instead of hiring people to fill a position within the company.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Honestly cannot think of any, due to this company having so many issues in so many areas; therefore, no positives at this time.

    Cons

    When hired, you are guaranteed a set number of hours per week. However, they do not guarantee those hours once in the door. They will also incorrectly pay you. You must review all paycheck stubs to ensure accuracy of pay.

    Advice to Management

    If the employees are constantly complaining about pay, benefits, etc.... it is probably a good idea to check into that! No one wants to be employed by a discrediting organization!


  3. Depending on what account your on and what branch your connected to determines the satisfaction of your employment.
