    I worked at CLASSIC SECURITY full-time

    Pros

    The people that WORK are great to work with.

    Getting rid of Keti.

    Cons

    Some people work while others sit around, play pool and get huge bonuses/raises for doing so..

    Managers never take responsibility for their mistakes, only pass the buck to people below them.

    Long hours VERY little pay!!!!

    Advice to Management

    You guys have great visions when it comes to the future of the business. However, you guys are blind when it comes to picking managers.

    Some of your gems are right under your nose and you would never know it because your nose is to high in the air.

    I have been working at CLASSIC SECURITY full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Classic Security Service is a decent company to work for with regard to it's site locations, in which a majority of those site locations are High-Rise Building's. The company provides excellent uniforms and offer free security license refresher courses.

    Cons

    Medical Benefits are varied depending on the site location. Unless you work in a particular building that offers a decent medical package such as Empire Blue Cross - Blue Shield, the medical benefits are subpar.

    Advice to Management

    Try to seek out an insurance company that offers group medical plan that provides great coverage for 300 employees or more.

    There are some medical plans that are out there in which a co-pay of $50 to $75 a week is contributed by the employee. The co-pay is taken out of the Gross Earnings prior to tax deductions. If this were to be done, this wouldn't exasperated the employee's net income and impact them financially.
