"Over expectant ideals of employee performance with low pay"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Some to most co-workers can be friendly and understanding. Depending on where posted you can meet some interesting people who you can learn from.

Cons

Pay will be determined by Securitas contract with the company you are posted at, so do not expect raises or change in pay. If the pay is low it will stay that way. Whatever you start with at that post it will stay that way.
Advancement within the company is unlikely to happen. Speaking with supervisors who worked at a post for years with great performance saw neither advancement or pay increase. In fact they were in supervisors in name only receiving the same pay as other security officers at the post.
Do not expect the office to send replacements when other officers call out leaving you to fill in for their shift.
