    Pros

    They dont drug test. Hire on the spot. Help you get your license if you only have certificates

    Cons

    They place you in some of the worst neighborhoodds. They dont pay you a lot. They have high turn over. Uniforms stink. They are really ghetto at the office curse at orientation and everything. No direct deposit. Barely any hours. No set site for you.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on your quality of service and maybe you will get guards who wont leave you so much

    Pros

    I guess easy work is the only pro, security work isn't rocket science you just have to pay attention.

    Cons

    Basically minimum wage, they bait & switched my schedule. I had to be at every shift but my coworker could call off constantly leaving me trapped in 16 hour shifts. They only care about their contracts, not you as an individual.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises for tenure, provide some actual health benefits, actually care for your staff.

    Pros

    If you need a job they are always hiring They showed me I can make more money doing private work.

    Cons

    Acknowledging your past experience will not get you the salary you deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Pay by experience then people will think twice about leaving, start doing Direct Deposit for your employees they may help.

    Full Time and Overtime whether you want it or not.

    Cons

    Worst Job Ever!!! Terrible working conditions, Abysmal pay, Union based strictly for the company (NOT YOU!) Bad attitudes galore from so called supervisors, Revoked holiday pay, Must purchase your own uniforms, Paper badges, No direct deposit, Good Luck getting your last paycheck from these people..... Too much more to list. If I could give a negative number rating I would.
