    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Guardian Service Industries full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Accommodations- From free lunch on Wednesdays to Summer Fridays (office closes early) this company strives to give you as much "You" time you need while maintaining its standards. Progressive- Management is open and deliberate with bringing in new Protocols, practices and even new hardware/Tech to compete with the best. Time Management- Culturally, deadlines are rarely missed because you are granted freedom to approach your tasks in your own way. This practice affords the employee freedom from impending deadlines therefore increasing quality of work produced.

    Cons

    No Mentorship program of any sort.

    Just a job, not carrier. Good to start off somewhere and look for an organization that takes you and your growth serious.

    Cons

    No union, lack of communication, favoritism, he said she said mentality, constant verbal and mental abuse, bullying, no overtime pay, no floaters, no PPE (even though we are taxed for our uniforms), illegal workers, bribery, sexual harassment, sexism. But most of all: YOU WILL GET NO LEGAL BREAK DURING YOUR SHIFT.
