    Pros

    Flexible hours: They'll do everything they can to find hours suitable for you.
    Close location to home: They'll check for a location within a certain amount of miles from your home, which you tell them.
    Nice Co-Workers: Of course, this is per site, but in my experience, all of my co-workers have been nice individuals.

    Cons

    Lack of communication with Securitas.
    No 3rd shift differential on pay, as your pay is determined by your site and securitas' agreement.

    Pros

    Great pay. Usually you will get to pick a placement site. The job is mostly customer service and patrolling your assignment.

    Cons

    As a flex officer your schedule is umdetermined, and you can be called anytime and be required to be on site for up to 16 hours at the longest. It was very difficult to shedule things while employed as a flex officer.

    Advice to Management

    Consider your employees' happiness and morale.

  7. Exceptional company

    Pros

    This is a company who truly cares about employee moral. The pay is great and they are awesome about giving raises based on performance.

    Cons

    I have no negative feelings about Securitas. They have always gone above and beyond for their employees and care greatly about each one as an individual.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management and corporate are doing a great job. More companies should take note.

    Pros

    The Starting pay was good for a dead end job, co workers, easy of the job, work hours

    Cons

    This is a dead end job, easy of job, they forced overtime at the last minute when some one calls off.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be just to take your time in hiring people and the turn over wouldn't be that high. But the turn over was so high that over time was good if you got half a brain and didn't get fired. So keep up the good work management

    This company allows overtime and the starting salary for some contracts are above some security companies.

    Cons

    Not good with informing employees about updates for new contracts and if you are out of their system for 30 or more days you have to reapply
