    Pros

    Weekly pay, nice hourly rate, easy job

    Managerial expectations can be unreasonable. One complaint cost me my job, and my side wasn't even considered.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and don't treat them like they're disposable.

    Pros

    Very flexible Company, Loved the management in Chicago/Joliet and in the New York Staten Island Office, Very understanding and very personable. The Management tries to work with you depending on the circumstances and there is room for advancement, once you put some time and experience into the company and they know who you are by your work ethics. They definitely acknowledge their good workers. Miss and love this company.

    Cons

    Not any complaints really, the pay rate is comparable to other security companies out there.

    Advice to Management

    An annual pay rate increase would be nice depending of course on the employees performance and business work ethics and professionalism. CEO/President of Metro One Loss Prevention actually came out to the location in person at the Joliet Location from New York and actually met with and observed what the guards jobs entail. He is a very impressive and personable individual that cares about his company and how its being run.

    Pros

    They are great at messing up or you not getting paid, lying to you, using you.

    Cons

    Top Flight security at their best. Officers challenging people to fights in the streets and pulling asp out on unarmed non verbal or combatant people. No professionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all management and owners sell the company. The worst company of all time.

    Pros

    I liked working Part-time, the ability to pick up hours or drop back hours was great. There was not the usual pressure to work more hours than you chose to.

    Cons

    There was no 401k type benefit, or direct deposit option. There was no support from management when it came to feedback from the various accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a benefit for part time employees like a 401k many pt worker's are Retired and would like the opportunity to defer earnings.
    Look in to the possibility of using even a portion of the monitoring system in place at various accounts to observe the workforce. This could be used to determine the validity of complaints made against employees who are not under direct supervision by M-1 management.

    Pros

    If you wanted to work, you would be given numerous hours and would be called to constantly pick up shifts if possible.

    Cons

    Management can be a little shady when it comes to pay, one check was missing $150 of overtime which was fixed on the next paycheck however.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the needs and concerns of the security guards that work for you. Be more flexible with hours and also screen people better.
