    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.

    Poor coverage for the few things they did have listed.

    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.

    Best....401k plan. Worst...no bonus or raises for the past several years, bad healthcare plan,

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Not really the best, but it is something. It is expensive and no one has ever heard of the insurance. Vacation commences after a year and because of the new law you have to accumulate PTO.

    Star Star Star Star Star Former Relationship Manager in Los Angeles, California

    The bonus covered my monthly gas expenses I incurred driving for the company. The company cannot hire or retain security officers. Has no allowance for uniforms. You constantly have open posts. And if you do, you have to drive there and stand yourself. Management will trow you under the bus in a jiffy for something they asked you to do in the first place. Talking down at you, berate you, embaras you in front of clients because they made you promise them something and then told you they can't do it. They regularly underpay security officers for their actual hours. Most shochingly, they also overcharge your clients (including LE). Then send you in to get raped. If you as locky as me, they will dump accounts in 4 counties on you covering half a state with one hiring office in a different time zone and expect you to drive 1K miles a week to do inspections, cover schedule, deal with call offs, run 5K thousand hours of payroll a week by hand/ in paper. All normal benefits their structured in such a way that you would not take them if you are normal. Health insurance through company is 300 a month.
