    Pros

    You can leave sites and go home early. Especially on overnight construction sites. No one really checks to see if your there. A supervisor showed up once to check on me and he was drunk. That was the only time someone checked on me.

    Cons

    Your checks are usually wrong. Your missing hours. You have to deal with site supervisors who think they're better than you even though your all security guards making chump change. No advancement opportunities. Management is incompetent. Pay is low. No raises given. If you are hard up for a job you can work here until you find something better. I mean it is security so you can't expect to much. Average pay is 10hr.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional. When employees see you're incompetent and lazy and don't want to do your job. They will act the same way. Learn communication skills. Speak to people like you would want them to speak to you.

    Pros

    You really get a chance to meet some great people at most sites.

    Cons

    Management only cares about the client and doesn't extend themselves for the guards who actually do their job and then some.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees accordingly or you're going to end up losing some really great guards.
