    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I believe this company offers growth potential to those who stand out and perform well. I started out as an intern and eventually gained a human resources role after several years with company. I also felt there was strong support from branch officers for all employees.

    Cons

    Compensation was appropriate, but not the best for Human Resources Industry. In addition, training programs could be stronger. There is solid support from team members but occasionally you have to seek out solutions on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was an extremely satisfied employee of Securitas and felt growth opportunities were always available for those who stood out and performed well. I do however feel that training programs could be stronger for those in human resources roles with company.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay for the industry. Variety of assignments to choose from. Stable position during economic downturns as nobody lays off security.

    Cons

    Chaotic schedules - things are either super busy or super slow. This should almost be considered seasonal work. Lots of managers have personal agendas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just fill management slots with ex guards and hope for the best. Give them some training, hold them accountable and don't be afraid to fire them.

    Pros

    They have very professional Management , supervisors, human resources, office staff

    Cons

    Some of their security officers need a lot of discipline, as far as being on time, appearance ,and attitude.

    Like most, if not all security companies, you're hired at will , they lose the contract at the site your at , you usually lose your job.
