    Pros

    DK Security is a family owned company that really cares about it's employees which is very refreshing in today's environment. The flexible scheduling is a huge plus and they do a good job of promoting from within. I feel like my work is genuinely appreciated by management.

    Cons

    There are a wide variety is work sites. Some are more desirable than others, but again, if you do a good job and gain experience in the company you can work your way up.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, friendly co-workers, and management that REALLY cares. Flexible hours with part time benefits.

    Cons

    Competitive wages will seem low for starting wages, but if you put your time and energy into your work, you will be rewarded with better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Strive to get more locations, maybe a sales team is something to consider for future growth.

    I worked at DK Security (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly management and co-workers
    Able to help people out but also make sure people are safe and following procedures.
    Need anything while on duty and someone will try to get it for you.

    Cons

    Low starting pay
    Not enough jobs, work on an as needed basis
    May go long distances before getting a break
    Some workers don't do their jobs properly.

    Advice to Management

    The starting pay needs to be increased. Pay people a little more and I feel like you will get more out of your employees. Similar to the "you pay for what you get" saying.

    I worked at DK Security part-time

    Pros

    Fairly straight forward job, not a lot of stress either. Got the position fairly easily and left on good terms.

    Cons

    Had to work some holidays and there is always an inherent danger when working security or law enforcement of any sort.

    Advice to Management

    I had no issues with the management at all, I just wish that starting pay was slightly higher and raises came more frequently so I didn't have to leave.
