I have been working at Apex3 Security full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great at hiring people. In this economy, everyone needs a job and I would reccommend this company for that.

Cons

Advancement within the company , a different subject. Some employees have languished in positions for years and feel unappreciated for the contributions they make on a daily basis.

Advice to Management

On the lower spectrum, move employees around, give long term employees the opportunity to move up in the organization i.e, officers to supervisors/shift mamagers and watch commanders or supervisors to directors.

    I have been working at Apex3 Security full-time

    Pros

    This company strives to be the best when it comes to professionalism and customer service. The atmosphere you work in is great when you have a good team and a good client. Great for first time security officers.

    Cons

    security can be 24/7 365 days a year, which may be the cause of high turn overs. Put in your vacation as early as possible to guarantee your days off! You rate vacation after one year with the company.

    Advice to Management

    I do not believe the yearly training classes are beneficial. It should be optional. There should also be more incentives from time to time. Doing the same job everyday for months can get mundane, some of the guys should be rewarded for hard work.

    I have been working at Apex3 Security (More than a year)

    Pros

    Apex3 is always hiring and once hired it is easy to transfer to a better account.
    Always room for promotions as people get promoted or move on.
    Overtime, yes your are working over 40 hours but it pays out in the end.
    Great job right out of school.

    Cons

    Low starting pay
    Forced overtime, holiday overtime(double time but still overtime)

    Advice to Management

    Starting pay should be higher after probation ends.
