    Dec 22, 2019 - Unarmed Security Guard in Hanson, KY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Crew - I had a decent crew. Location - it was close to home. Job - the job was pretty cut and dry.

    Cons

    Pay was dreadfully low with all our added tasks as well as new hires getting a dollar more while the older guys got nothing. Communication was awful we didn't find out that the company we worked for were changing security companies until a month before we were to leave the site. The hours sucked I pulled a solid 14 days straight of 12 hour days and had to come back from vacation early after my daughter was born to cover for another guard and our supervisor. We were red headed step children no one wanted to supply us with anything be it a cart to drive the lot to flashlights and radios.

    Nuclear Security Officer

    Apr 7, 2017 - Nuclear Security Officer in Erwin, TN
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Plenty of hours if you want to work them. - If you're local to the area, it's a high paying job. - A lot of good people in the actual workforce.

    Cons

    - Competing companies pay about 15% more ($20 per hour @ MG vs $25 at Oak Ridge) to provide the same service for the Department of Energy, less than 2 hours away, despite the same cost of living. - Good Ole' Boy promotion system is embedded deep. - If you're a Veteran with experience, prepare to be talked down to by couch-commandos in management and training to the point of mockery (A Senior Management official called Reservists "Summer Camp kids" while I was there, and this individual had no prior military experience, so it wasn't a good natured jab from experience to be funny). - If you have experience, your opinion is not valued. - Issues with Murray Guard are enabled by issues within the Client.

    Pros

    Pay was always on time Did have health and dental insurance option available.

    Cons

    My vehicle was my guard shack at any site I worked. Was the lowest paying security job in the city. Tended to not look out for the safety of their guards. Never listened to security ideas.
