    I worked at Andrews International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy job for the pay. Training time. Monthly range. Host company is awesome to contract for. Kitchen, gym available to use.

    Cons

    Pay issues for past 3 years at least. Manager doesnt know or offer information about vacation time. He told me one thing, I got a different answer from USSEC (parent company). My hours were purposely whited out by manager and refused to pay double time until I showed company policy/law. Punishment for policy that doesn't exist.

    I worked at Andrews International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The gear issue and pay from Andrews was the best that I've ever received since the military. They are a well put together company.

    Cons

    The hiring process is quite tedious. I was a subcontractor for a company for years and Andrews came in to employ us and I fail to pass a test a month in and unfortunately got laid off.

    I worked at Andrews International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I do not have any positive comments for this job.

    Cons

    Virtually no training for guards. No upward mobility. Supervisors are not monitored, and instead spend their days at the computer.

    Advice to Management

    Create a training program for employees, and monitor supervisors to ensure they are working.

    I worked at Andrews International part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people are friendly and easy to work with. You have to to wait for a call to respond to a location but the person calling is usually nice

    Cons

    When they send you to a location, you have to try and figure out where it is and parking is sometimes very difficult to find. Some guards they send out dont want to work, they show up with man buns (hair) etc not professional.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hire people that want to do a good job and can be professional. I never got a review during the time i worked for them

    Pros

    It gets paid decent enough.

    Cons

    You get force held up. The benefits are horrible. Management doesn't communicate with their employees so you never know what really is going on. They make you carry a weapon well passed it's service life, even when it's recommended by it's manufacturer to discontinue use and buy new ones. Instead of correcting and punishing an individual for messing up, the entirety gets punished instead. A very Military-like job.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be all new management. The current management doesn't listen to the advice of people who are experienced and know the job. Management doesn't KNOW the job.
