    I worked at Mercury General part-time

    Pros

    Very nice work environment, great insurance and benefits, uniforms provided.

    Cons

    Incompetent management- no security experience (supervisor is real estate/building manager), zero input into policies and procedures by experienced security staff, rigid scheduling, no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Bridge the gap between security officers and company by creating a supervisor position within the actual security department. Allow flexible scheduling so that no officer is forced to work every weekend.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mercury General (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Spoke over the phone to HR over the phone after applying online. Then met in person to speak to two managers. Was offered a position 3 weeks later. Did have to keep in constant contact with HR as I told them I needed to give my employer two weeks notice. They seems unorganized. I was only able to give my job 1.5 weeks notice since they told me late.
