    I have been working at Guardsmark part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hiring process and selection of candidates is by far the best and most thorough out of any security company I have worked for. The amount of paperwork I had to fill out just to get a part-time position was absolutely ridiculous, but that's what I like about it. Not just anybody can walk in and get a job here. The pay scale is also above the typical contract security standard.

    Cons

    The cons are typical of any private security operation. Relations with client employees can be difficult and some don't treat the security force with much respect. I've been in the security industry for over 10 years with many different organizations both contract and in-house and there is nothing bad about this company that you wouldn't experience with any other company.

    My only complaint at all, and it's very petty, is that the uniforms are bizarre. They're part business part law enforcement and very out-dated. They do look professional and most employees wear them well, but they need a bit of an update.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing- at least at my branch.
