    Pros

    This place is a great place to work! The administration really takes care of their employees. They go beyond above and beyond expectations when it comes to satisfying their customers.

    Cons

    Sometimes it may take HR a few days to get back with you on paperwork but other than that, nothing to complain about.

    Pros

    Interesting job, never the same

    Cons

    Everything else, having to do with this company. Management contradicts their own handbook. A job well done is rewarded with more work but no Increase in pay.......Officers who have worked 3 years+. Are making less then new hires . If your sick....To bad you cannot call in. Because they are so short on staff due to all the earlier stated reasons and no one's stays long..You get charged for HR to do your time sheet which is recorded on a call log. Training...Lmao what training....They will throw you at a site and basically your expected you figure it out....But if you mess it up, it's your fault....Also you are expected to use your personal vehicle to drive to these sites which rage in distance from1-54 miles. And they won't compensate you for your gas...You will have no life outside of this company.

    Advice to Management

    These are human beings that deserve respect.

    I worked at JBM Patrol & Protection full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Like another review stated the courage to find better and quit !

    Cons

    very poor at keeping good officers, sad when they treat the loyal officers like dirt, while the low lifes get treated like royalty. All that happens is the bad ones get passed from site to site. Lost many accounts due to this. No Accountability , the scheduler just plugs holes , when hiring it's quantity not quality with this company. The biggest stigma, No Benefits unless you work in Madison. No Holiday pay, but the client gets billed for it, Not right! No Incentive to become better , promises made , but never kept.

    Advice to Management

    I'd say treat the good employees as such, but that in itself is a joke in Milwaukee. You've used all the Good people up and now you are stuck with whats left .

    I have been working at JBM Patrol & Protection full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -You work with a lot of different people and become really close with your co-workers.
    -Working different accounts helps keep things interesting.

    Cons

    Where to begin....
    -Pay is awful and management sits on pay raise requests for MONTHS.
    - New employees are paid more than people who have worked there for years
     - Management is awful. Everyone in the office is more concerned about keeping their jobs and making them self's look better for the high and mighty CEO that they frequently will blame subordinates for their mistakes.
    - The CEO and management with sandbag you if they know that you are looking for another job.
    -Management does not care about the employee's safety and will cut corners to save money.

    Advice to Management

    Lean to care about your employees a little bit. Stop worrying about hiring new people and learn how to keep people.

    Pros

    Wages are above most other Western Tennessee companies. Nice work environment, good equipment and co-workers. Uniforms are provided and my Sergeant is a great supervisor.

    Cons

    We are like other companies, try to find the best officers. In Memphis we are growing and looking for good people takes up a lot of time.

    Advice to Management

    Move the corporation office to this area, lots of potential as we have satisfied customers.

    Pros

    I feel the only "pro" was having the courage to quit

    Cons

    CEO, Personnel LT, and management horrible. Wife of CEO is the only one with any common sense

    Advice to Management

    Let wife run business. Owner is crazy power hungry. The claim is "police officer" owned and operated...writing parking tickets in Mayberry don't make one a cop.

    I worked at JBM Patrol & Protection full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the other guards were nice and hard working.

    Cons

    Managment cares too much about making the company appear like a police force or military organization that they overlook glaring issues.

    They reward people for military service rather than security experience or hard work.

    Too concerned with ensuring everybody adheres to a military like standard including titles and dress standards.

    Very sexist mentality with managements including sexual harassment and victim blaming for female guards. Male guards aren't always free from harassment either as I had a supervisor who found an embarrassing picture of me online and printed it out to show everybody.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make everything seem like a military organization or a police force and embrace the fact that this is a business. Act professional and reward hard work instead of previous military experience.
