    I worked at Lofton Security Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Didn't get bounced around from location to location. The clients were very nice and understanding. Very easy job duties. I never had a real reason to complain.

    Cons

    Pay could be higher. I had worked for them 12 years earlier and it hadn't improved much. This was the main reason they couldn't keep good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Screen new applicants better. Don't hire just anybody out of desperation.
