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

Pros

People I have worked with, there are some good hard working individuals within Securitas. Not that management would care to know about it.

Cons

Horrible management with unremarkable track record.

Advice to Management

Fire incompetent office personnel - listen to your front line employees as office has lost touch with the real world a long ago.

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

    Pros

    Depending on the site, there's good opportunities to acquire experience in the security field and meet nice people.

    Cons

    -Management is dishonest. They will tell you what you want to hear just to get you on board or to get you to change sites.

    -At my sites, Management did not have a way to recognize officers for great service. All they cared about was getting a body to cover a shift. They don't know which officers make the company look good or which officers give them a bad image by performing their jobs poorly.

    -Management does not care if you like the site you are working at. They will move you around to whatever sites accommodate their needs. And every site pays different rates, so your pay could decrease.

    -Bad place to work if you have a family. You may work holidays and weekends and different shifts. Sometimes it's hard to get time off, even for family emergencies.

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective in the people you hire, both officers and office staff. Hire people who are committed and have a passion for protecting people and assets. Hire people who can look and act professional and who display integrity. The client and employees should be able to respect Security Officers and know that they're always there to help them.
