    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the other officers work well with each other,making an unpleasant work site bearable. Met good people. HR and most of the people in the office do their best to be accommodating to the officers' needs.

    Cons

    Not a place for a career, or to make a reasonable living. Poor health benefits, no COLA, sick days and vacations are iffy. It is what it is. Pick your battles..

    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible part time hours and full time hours. Easy work. Good temporary job to have while between jobs. Good job for college students able to study at work during most shifts. shifts range from 4-12 hours.

    Cons

    Low pay, difficult to stand out, required to work all holidays however this doesn't mean you will work every holiday. Some holidays aren't paid overtime. Changing work locations can happen at anytime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check in more often with employees, every guard I meet should receive required continious training annually.

    Been with the company 3 weeks, have not received an accurate pay-check yet. Missing hours and other errors seem common, yet they do depend on branch management/H.R.
