    Pros

    There are no benefits to working for Command Security.

    Cons

    The HQ do NOT care about their employees. Not a good place to work at all - always disrespected by those in charge...

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about people that do work there.....have some compassion, pick up the phone and send paychecks when they are requested because you are causing people to be homeless.

    I worked at Command Security full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers
    Benefits are not terrible

    Cons

    No pay raises
    No support from upper management
    If another guard fails to show for his shift you must stay until a relief guard shows- This means working unexpected doubles.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is too secluded from sites.
    When there are bad employees, management is in no rush to get rid of them.
    Treat employees like just a warm body to watch over the site.
    No personal relationship development with employees.
    Give performance evaluations with chance for increase in pay.
    Fix all of this

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

    Pros

    My coworkers aren't too bad - so I guess that can be a pro.

    Cons

    There are a lot - the office is not friendly. No one ever speaks to anyone else - you can hear a pin drop, it's so quiet in there. Management never speaks to anyone except for themselves - not even a hello when they pass you by. The company is drowning in too many hours to fill with not enough security guards. The pay is not good and the benefits are really expensive - I cannot afford them for my family. I never look forward to going to work and I am actively looking for a new job. It seems like everyone is - employees don't stay around long at all anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Be friendlier. Offer better pay and benefits. Stop overworking everyone. Saying hello won't kill you.

    I have been working at Command Security full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many - I suppose it's a benefit to have free snacks/coffee/soda in the break room. My coworkers are easy to work with, as well.

    Cons

    There seem to be so many to list. The executives don't really know how to manage or even run a company. The keep signing up for jobs that they don't have the guards to fulfill. All they care about is making money - they never speak to us/ the employees unless necessary and the environment in the office is stale/stagnant. It kind of reminds me of calling hours for a funeral - nobody wants to be there but it's an obligation. The pay isn't good, everyone works over their lunch hours - it seems expected to do so since no one ever takes a break.

    Advice to Management

    Shut the company down. Your competitors are quickly advancing over you.
