    Dec 22, 2019 - Unarmed Security Guard in Hanson, KY

    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.

    Extremely disappointed with how I have been treated the last 8 years

    Jul 18, 2014 - Security Guard in Lexington-Fayette, KY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Job is easy, love the post

    Cons

    No raise ever, in 8 yrs of employment, checks are constantly wrong, worked EVERY weekend 12 hr shifts for 8 yrs, they hired one person to work one day so I don't get OT (all this does is make me place the floor at home when it's his night to work. If he doesn't show up, we could lose contract), no communication with Lexington staff, they all seem very uneducated and lack the skills to run the company smoothly, they are verbally abusive towards employees (actually got yelled at for taking time off for my mothers passing, because they say there is no one to replace me), emailed corporate over pay which got me no where, have been laid off by a piece of paper hanging in my office (couldn't even face me like a Man) but yet they write you up if you don't shave accordingly. Their paid vacations are paid by employees last name. Meaning, if your last name starts with a W, you're paid last week of August. Good luck scheduling a vacation. I'm so sick of the many consequences an employee can face due to his/her actions, while companies like these take no responsibility whatsoever for their many faults. I'm very seriously contemplating contacting the BBB, labor board and lawyer.

    I am currently employed by Murray Guard

    Aug 19, 2013 - Security Officer in Guin, AL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Paychecks are always on time, any mistakes in pay are promptly fixed on the next pay period. The hours I work vs they days off is great.

    Cons

    Pay is no where near worth, all that I am responsible for at current site. No real job security, insurance "supplement plan" is a joke that is priced way too high. No matching 401K, Inept local site supervisors, No one in any kind of management position listens to concerns or ideas from the "guards". Almost non existent chances for career advancement. No raises in last 3 years, Some get paid more for the same job preformed.
