    Pros

    Commute to work was closeby and you could work other properties for overtime.

    Cons

    Benefits are not that great. They give you all your time off upfront so you can't take any vacation. If you do you won't get paid for it.

    I worked at International Security Management Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Had no problem getting this job due to extensive experience.

    Cons

    Constant Payroll Discrepancies. All the time. Always in the company's favor. Doesn't seem like a coincidence.
    Also, hired people don't seem to get raises, one of my coworkers was getting $4 less then me because he has been at that post 3 years longer then me.
    Also, knew one site supervisor who was making $3 less then new hires.

    Advice to Management

    You receive what you pay for. It's common after being short in you pay to leave your post or arrive early, etc. Best people just leave for greener pastures.

    I worked at International Security Management Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great sites available. Once you have established yourself you can move into a site Director's job. The pay is set by the client account you are assigned to.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of turn over in the guards. But that is the nature of the business and not specific to this company. The benefits are limited, but again that is normal in this industry.


  10. "This position allows me to represent a positive image and support community in public Safety environment and beyond."

    Current Contractor - Event Support Specialist/Public Safety in Chicago, IL
    Current Contractor - Event Support Specialist/Public Safety in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at International Security Management Group as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I gain the experience of integrating with the Chicago Police Department when I am assigned to events such as The Taste of Chicago, and the Air and Water Show. I like taking part in the responsibility that comes with public safety, traffic control, and other critical functions associated with big events. I have learned much about Event Production Management, as I work alongside City of Chicago Management personnel, who trust that I perform the responsibilities, and communicate what needs to be improved upon with regard to flow of production, and functionality within the environment to public safety management team members. I also love the public relations involved with this work. A huge part of working in Public Safety is customer service and I take pride and responsibility to communicate with a positive demeanor.

    Cons

    Assignments are temporary and mostly short term. This is the only concern I have.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to thank Management for their trust in me,allowing me to be a first point of contact in communication with management for The City of Chicago, and operations involved.
