    I have been working at SOS Security full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The contract you might have can be great places to work or bad. Depending on the people you work with and the post you get assigned to.The pay is more than what normal security companies start you at.

    Cons

    The post you might work at could be or the people you work with could ruin your experience. You can be removed with just 1 complaint from an employee of the post you are contracted at. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the people you hire are kind and friendly.

    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SOS Security (Sacramento, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Not many questions were asked besides my availability and where I wanted to work. Drug test was urine and you got hired from there. Won't be in an actual security guard uniform depending on where you're placed.
