    Pros

    If you were on day shift there were no problems, pay was ok, other guards were great..

    Cons

    Upper management had thier heads up their butts so far it was pathedic... Tom and Lance walked around like they could boss you around and make you do things outside of the law both in Labor Laws and Legal Law.. There were several times they were in violation of Labor Laws and got slapped for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take an actual course in Management Skills and quit brown noseing the owner or your boss.

    I have been working at Summit Security part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The clients you are sent to work for are very nice and accommodating.

    Cons

    Summit has got to be one of the most fugazy, poorly run, seedy security companies I have ever worked for. They have a very high turnover of guards. They are constantly advertising for new guards. Upon going to their office to submit an application for employment, I ended up waiting for over two hours to be called in for an interview. Meanwhile the person conducting the interviews was on the phone the entire time, making calls and returning calls. There were two candidates ahead of me who had been waiting two hours and more before I had even arrived. Then after all of that, the individual conducting the interview had the audacity to tell me to my face that he did not have anything for me at that moment. The following week they called me and asked if I wanted to work overnights on the weekends. I had to go back to their office for more paperwork and a drug test. Again, I was there over two hours for what ended up taking less than ten minutes. Then I had to go to the location to meet the client. I lasted there less than two weeks because I found out a guard who was hired after me, and who had less security experience than I did, was given a full-time assignment during the daytime hours. I will never again work for Summit, and I recommend that you do not, neither

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assignments should go by merit and experience

    Pros

    Insurance is ok, if you like working nights there's no traffic to deal with on roads.

    Cons

    management has no idea what they are doing and pass the ball to someone else to deal with, payroll is a joke with either short hrs or days on check/ their check is sometimes put on hold when deposited till it clears or thier own bank will not cash it due to not enough funds...They like to say that your the only one with this problem but yet you hear from other guards talk about the same thing. Several are so upset they're ready to bring state labor board in to investigate. Guards treated like garbage, no holidays off or sick days and if you do call in sick they pull bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your guards/ quit firing good people and stop putting your faults on former employees.

    Pros

    Medical plan is not too bad for security. $160 a month for Kaiser.

    Cons

    Micro-management from hell. I was one of their best employees then one of the newer office managers decided he wanted to get rid of me. Made up a story about me sleeping on the job and fired me. I have worked security for years and never slept on the job ever. What a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop firing all of your best employees. There is nobody left to run your company now.
