I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The job is an easy one. Most of the time you sit around and just monitor the areas. a great job for a college kid. I used to say its "paid study time"

Cons

Low Pay, very boring work potential. Most of the time i sat in a guard station doing nothing for 8 hours

Advice to Management

Higher pay

    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    work in california for too littlepay

    Cons

    pays employees way too little and benefits cost way too much and no way out.

    Advice to Management

    give your security officers better wages and charge less for insurance and treat them with respect as you expect your guards to treat those where you put them. how you NOW run Securitas is terrible simply terrible and "NO" I WOULD NOT RECCOMEND TO ANY FRIEND OR ENEMY! Your company is way too stingey.

    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Huge variety of shifts and locations. If you don't like a site, call the office and they'll work with you. Great second job or while in college. Many sites have just one guard, and pay you to stay awake and watch cameras. They will hire almost anyone.

    Cons

    Some sites have unskilled managers. The pay is low and benefits are prohibitively expensive. Expect some level of petty bickering at sites with a crew during day shifts. Little opportunity for advancement. They will hire almost anyone.
