    I have been working at Kent Security full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Since I arrived into the United States, Kent security has become the first company that I work for; I received my first 40 hours of training with them in Florida and until now it has remained my one and only job .

    I have been referred by my dad and this makes me already 9 years of service. I would say that I enjoyed every single moment spent in the company , it makes me feel like home and I am glad to be part of this big family. I LOVE YOU KENT!

    Cons

    Honestly, everything's being great so, I have nothing to complain about.

    I worked at Kent Security part-time

    The company hold is with you from start to end. Any time there was an issue, I was always able to reach out to someone and get help and support. There was never a time that the company took advantage or lied to me.

    I wish that all the sites paid so well.

    Pros

    I work for Kent Services Concierge division in NJ. I started to work for kent in december of 2016 and started immediately. I enjoy how supportive they company is from the director of operations luis gomez, to our district manager Anthony Luddeni. While they are managing the company, they find time to address some of problems i am dealing with at the site.They are always eager to help us. Another reason kent is an amazing company is the uniform that is given to us. The suits are very nice quality are tailored and they fit impeccable. Last but not least, Kent Services offers career advancement opportunities and that is something everyone seeks. I have been working as a concierge for 5 years and i have worked with a lot of different concierge companies. Kent has been the best company i have worked for and will continue to work for a long time.

    Cons

    Currently there are no cons, i am still new to the company but have had a great experience so far.

    I worked at Kent Security full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They truly value you from beginning to end. I worked with Kent for 5 years, as a licensed unarmed security officer. Worked in 3 properties, 1 permanent/full time and help with coverage ate 2 others. Management is fair and direct. Guards work well together. Pay is better than most security companies and YES! they pay on time. They provide medical, dental and match 401K contributions. They hired me after 2 interviews and provided me with a suitable schedule. The training was detailed and the staff is extremely professional. Hands down the best security company in NY.

    Cons

    Prior to leaving I heard that they will be implementing direct deposit. This will make them even better.

    The one negative I have is not about them exactly but the industry. Some buildings should pay more to ensure guards are in turn paid more. I am extremely dedicated and I need to be compensated for it. Kent is great at paying the max!

    Advice to Management

    Good job!
