I have been working at Per Mar Security Services part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Doing special events for the company can be a lot of fun. It's something different all the time. You can come into this company with no experience and leave a totally different person.

Cons

It's extremely cliquey working events. The coordinator for events has his girlfriend as his assistant. You don't get promoted on merit, it's on who you know and how close you are to the inner circle. Complaining about supervisors can (and has) consequently led to your hours being messed with. It frequently feels as though you are back in high school. If you're looking for any sort of stability you're better off going through the licensing process and working at sites versus events. There's too many empty promises in events and the senior management pays little to no attention.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to the events side of the company, not just the sites. A lot of good employees are lost by the management of the events.

    I worked at Per Mar Security Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gain experience and licensing.

    Cons

    Small privately owned company. Resting on past successes in Iowa. Nepotism rules the day. Lack of understanding and/or willingness to accept market conditions and adapt to or change to allow locations to be successful. Corporate support tells a great story, delivers very little to locations more than 50 miles from the home office "Per Mar Plaza". No real potential to advance. Compensation is below most market rates and is based on Corporate local demographics. Quad Cities vs. Major Metro Markets.

    Advice to Management

    Hire outside executive leadership.
