I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than 5 years)
Great stepping stone and way to learn about security. Lots of experiance within the company. Every work site is differerent so find one that fits you. Room for promotions if you work hard.
Just like all security jobs the client is first, management second and lower staff is last. With all the experiance in this company I was surprised of the very low morals and ethics. Everyone is just looking out for them self and the clients satisfation. NO team work at all. Nothing will ever get done unless the client requests it. You will have two company rules to follow since you work for them but contracted out to a bigger company. Some of those rules contradict oneanother and they choose which one to follow depending on the situation. Very high turn over rate because of the working conditions. benifits are more like a discount. vacations are frowned apon. you get " vacation pay" but not " paid vacation". The vacation pay is also a scam. It is based off a 40 hour work week for the year. If you do less than 40 they adjust it to there favor. If you do more than 40 it stays at 40. There is no benifit to doing overtime other than the pay and a pat on the back. If you are an expert in Security or customer service pass on this job. you will just hit brick wall after brick wall. You will not go anywere with the company unless you are already friends with managment.
