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

    Pros

    You may like it or not but it's a job. Guardsmark provides uniforms for the employees.
    You can get your PERC card through the company instead of paying extra money for the training somewhere else

    Cons

    Hiring Process: Tons of useless paper work, Background check, Drug Test, Polygraph test, 500 psychological questions to answer. You must provide all the history about you, your family and neighbors.

    Benefits: Medical insurance is a piece of garbage. You get 5 days paid vacation after a year of employment( You can't take vacation when you want!)

    Promises: Guardsmark loves to promise many things to the new employees. They will promise a rewarding career, great benefits, many opportunities , good pay etc. In reality you will get a job for $10/hr, a few cents raise a year, very poor benefits and absolutely no room to advance. Guardsmark is a one big propaganda.

    Advice to Management

    Tell lipman and the rest of the bosses to get rid off monthly training sheet. It's a waste of paper, none of us ever pay attention to this scam and we are asked to lie that we supposedly to this "training" every single day at least for an hour. In reality we copy the answers in 10min. Guardsmark's "training" is worth nothing. Lipman stop sending this stupid newspaper with every check and instead give us a rise and benefits like every professional company do.
