    Pros

    The work is very easy nice supervisors and they will work with you on scheduling I work Monday- Friday no week ends and over night just like I wanted.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average for the type of companies they contract with.
    Brach have sum mean people with little to no empathy for you if you want to relocate or have issues with payroll.
    They hire anyone so its no to professional or have people that really care about there job.
    Some supervises or a bit well lack of a better word unprofessional and I have herd sum nasty comments and flirtations with them.
    they do get your foot in the door but find a better job while working I am telling you you'll be happier in the long run. Great stepping stone but no to much of a great career move if you know what I mean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SCREEN SCREEEN and train better sum people have CPR licenses but if I ask they what CPR stands for they cant tell me now how your going to save a life

    My time there was a love hate relationship. Love the money. Hate the management.

    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA

    Pros

    Love the pay by site thing they got going on. Great company, ducky management.

    Cons

    I worked at many sites. When the company had The American Express account, that was the worse. They management are bias. They look out for their friends before anyone one else and treat you like craps. The manager there is a ex-cop and run that place like a police station.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your workers like humans they are, if not...there are many security companies in NYC they can go to.

    My Scheduling Manager is always offering me more hours. The sites that I have worked at pay is very decent! My co workers are friendly and pretty easy to get alone with. I like the fact that I was trained by a very Professional person! I am a flex officer so I am getting a lot of hours!!!!!!!

    Cons

    Last minute Schedules but other than that the company is GREAT!

    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Part-time is 32 hours a week; posts were easy to work; usually a set work schedule; easiest job you'll ever have, but don't expect to get promoted too much

    Cons

    the pay is pretty low, but decent for what you do; our branch worked hard for you not to get overtime, so the most you'll work is 40 hours a week at about $8 an hour; coworkers weren't the best; no upward movement

    Disapproves of CEO
