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

    Pros

    Working in a family owned and run business that has been around for over a hundred years is in of itself astonishing, but when the family makes it a point to get out and meet with its people to show they care for all their hard work; well that just makes it even better. I have worked off and on with Smith for over 10 years, and now that I am no longer in my chosen field of work of Fire/EMS, I have dedicated myself... to this company in hopes of making my part of it even better.

    Cons

    The days can be long and often frustrating, and the various of types of people that come and go can often times make it even more frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes I feel that there is a need to bring back a little old school mentality to this line of work. When we hire new people, we should invest a minimum of one to two days of in house training to go over what our policies, procedures, etc are; and to teach everyone how to write a prim, and proper DOR, or IR report that will not only make the client happy, but maybe make the Ops team shed a tear that there may yet... be some hope for the guard / patrol divisions yet.
