"Over expectant ideals of employee performance with low pay"

StarStarStarStarStar
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.

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

    Pros

    Easy to get hired, multiple shifts to work with personal schedule.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, no paid holidays (forced days off), no open shifts to make up for days off

    Advice to Management

    Since there are no paid holidays which makes it essentially a forced day off, allow those who want to work those days some kind of opportunity to do so. That way, their check won't be short.

    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, great HR department and employee treatment. The pay/ hours were straight forward and the local branches are there for the employee.

    Cons

    Management, both, local and national is absolutely horrible and dirty. Senior management is horrible as well as local management. The work/life balance is non-existent at most sites and the quality of people you work with is sadly lacking. There is no upward mobility and benefits are deplorable.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire and continue to employ people that aren't qualified for the position they are occupying.
