    Health insurance premiums were truly affordable after the Affordable Care Act went into effect! Also, basic life insurance premiums for all full-time employees were paid for by the company. The matching 401(k) was also decent, with a 12.5%-15% match.

    I didnt participate in any of the benefits offered by this company. I believe they were fairly good however I feel like they were more average as anywhere else.

    The insurance wouldn't pay for nothing, and when you argued the case they just drug their feet in order not to pay.

    Poor coverage for the few things they did have listed.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Security Officer in Caro, Michigan

    Best thing was it covered me so I didn't get fined come tax time. Cheaper than Obama care, even though it doesn't cover that much health. Just basic. You can get a more expensive plan, but costs quite a bit more.

    It was only after I left that I found out health insurance had an annual payout cap of $25,000. thankfully, I never had a car accident. Dental coverage was only offered after a year.

    This plan takes a while before you get them. But once you finally do they are awesome. So stick with them it will benefit you.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Orlando, Florida

    Great 401k with matching, vacation time off is also good with up to 2 weeks by your 2nd year. Medical and dental is too expensive for what is being offered in the package.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Security Officer in Oak Brook, Illinois

    They have tuition reimbursement. They pay $1000 towards your tuition, but, they use stalling tactics in hopes employees give up. Their health insurance does not cover optometrist checkups. It costs $2000 a year and is terrible as when you do go to the doctor, the insurance covers very little. The also have vacations. It's been one week so far. The always screw it up somehow. Either they forget to schedule it or they take three to four months to pay you for it. And consider that the whole time you work for the company as a security officer, there are now raises and very, very little room for advancement. Realize that you could be making $10 or $11 per hour for years. So, the health care premiums of $2000 annually and their mix-ups with vacations are VERY costly. By the way, this company was recently sued for NOT paying their employees vacation pay and GuardsMark was found guilty, and liable for it. You'd think GuardsMark would learn from any mistakes. But, indeed, they do not. A co-worker who recently quit (last week, after putting in two weeks notice) went to collect their vacation pay and the account manager told him that it was VERY unprofessional for him to ask.
