    I have been working at Guardsmark full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    >Compared to other contract security companies Guardsmark pay is on the higher side. > Health coverage is offered to all full time employees and for employee only is cheaper then other plans else where. > They hired me when I needed work

    Cons

    > Lack of Branch management over sight in regards to what the site supervisors do all day. > Employees are given NO training in how to handle aggressive or violent people other then Branch management telling you "DON'T BE A HERO" > The uniforms are impractical, out dated, and look like crap. > Branch doesn't seem to want to further them self's , never any new full or temporary sites/work

    Advice to Management

    Check in on Supervisors to insure they do the job as well.
