I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Fulfilling work that is not to hard. If your looking for a simple job with a steady income that is not fast food Securitas is a good option. Much better than working fast food or retail.

Cons

Not very good pay. Slim chance for upward mobility. Not going to make a living off of it.

Advice to Management

If you offered better pay you would probably have a better retention rate amongst your entry-level employees.

    Pros

    They'll hire just about anyone.

    Cons

    This place is a "body" mill. They hire anyone with a pulse, provided you can pass a background check in order to get you guard card.

    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There isn't much to do, and you might get to pursue your own interests while getting paid. You are able to catch the payroll mistakes online.

    Cons

    There isn't much to do, and you might not be allowed to do anything but stand there for 8-12 hrs. Payroll is often incorrect, even though I work the same 40 hrs every week. Management is incompetent and shady, be careful believing them, if they aren't wrong, they are lying. Example - You are not eligible for a raise in 90 days, they will say you are.
    You will be expected to treat the job as a career, as if there were a future in it for you. You will be expected to work 50-60 hour weeks, even if you are not available. You will be harassed if you don't comply. You will be expected to endure winter in January, outside for 8-12 hrs. You will be subject to the whims of the petty tyrants known as shift supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the management in the Dearborn, MI. office. Or at least check on them.
