    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Smith Protective Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People work with you to get the on a schedule that works in your favor. People are friendly with a sense of humor. Good company to get your foot in the door if your looking to get into security.

    Cons

    No communication between posts, if you want to become commissioned you have to hound someone until it happens. Under paid for what we do, and almost everyone employed agrees that you should find another company once you get enough experience. The benefits are bare bones, good for regular checkups but if something happens on the job or off, you have no actual coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Don't know where to start. Take care of your employees and you might get more loyalty from them. Having armed guards make the same as unarmed is dumb, when they have more training and have more dangerous positions.
