    I worked at Guardsmark full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good pay, ethical, strong focus on the customer and doing what they said. Lots of tenure from management. Lengthy background checks provided superior work force.

    Cons

    Dated technology and difficulty adapting with the industry. Lengthy background checks made it difficult to be flexible in some situations.

    Advice to Management

    You sold the company to a competitor.

    Pros

    Depending on your location great for college students. In dome locations good pay and the clients are terricic. The management team that I worked for where amazing.

    Cons

    At that time no real benefits you had no sick time. Everything is based on what location your hired no set pay.

    I have been working at Guardsmark full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good Workers that work hard. Good benefits from a contract security firm. Good Pay as well for contract security.

    Cons

    At times seems to not be up on new trends. This could hurt this company as thing change around them. It would'nt hurt them to mix in a company intranet so workers can get information and apply for jobs internally.

    Advice to Management

    Grow with the times, the security field is changing and ever growing these days. Keep up!

    I have been working at Guardsmark

    Pros

    Good pay, competent management, paid uniforms and other things that other companies tend not to provide. Better benefits than most competitors in the industry.

    Cons

    Nothing particularly negative about Guardsmark; some quirky policies such as management-only inspections that reduce some career growth opportunities, i.e. no mobile supervisors.

    I worked at Guardsmark

    Pros

    Guardsmark offers good pay and good job stability. the company gives employees opportunity to prove themselves. It is also a very good place to gain experience.

    Cons

    The company is very, very, very oldfashioned and behind the times. It also forsakes keeping longstanding clients for reasonable requests. Management also is very out of tune with what actually occurs at the sites.

    Advice to Management

    Guardsmark needs to update most processess, gain feedback from employees, update uniforms, increase benefits for management, improve incentive pay and training programs.
