    I have been working at Andrews International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I get to Maintain an entire lobby entrance of the 197 Clarendon building Manulife asset management for the john Hancock building in back bay. I direct and secure who belongs in the building. maintain a full report of each and every individual that works for the building directing the flow of traffic and meetings and taking down full incident reports if they occur.

    Cons

    No team briefings on daily activities that the employees should be aware of to get threw the daily shift in a well mannered ordered of one feeling that they belong in the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    More team lead give more of a sense of secureness of protocols to take if an active shooter does come threw that door. Or if a bomb threat was called. more of a sense of awareness that we are all together on the same shift for the same goal to get the day ended in a precise manner full reports. We have each other back for the sense of unity in case if some catastrophic was to happen.

    I worked at Andrews International (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Permanent positions and posts. Good benefits. Always have OT available. Uniforms are provided and cleaned. All additional training and guard card are offered. Great training facility. Advancement is offered within the company if qualified and willing to learn.

    Cons

    Management can be bias (its all in who you know and who you ----)sometimes.
    Paychecks are always wrong: holiday pay, overtime pay and vacation pay should be checked. For some reason the payroll department fogets these!!
    Don't expect a raise unless you get promoted or change post your shift (will never happen unless you push).
    LOTS AND LOTS of HE SAID...SHE SAID...BS!!!

    Advice to Management

    Instead of looking for officers to kiss your whatever....to promote and be incharge, try giving the position to one who is qualified and actually does their job.
    To the owners; some of your Directors are not decent human beings and choose family memebers and drinking buddies to be supervisors rather then those that follow the rules.
    Also, owners need to ask for video tapes that were set aside when the DVR systems were put in....they would be amazed at what they might find on some of those tapes!!!! EX...adult film being made inside the K---- Theatre in restricted areas.
