    I worked at SOS Security full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is one of the best jobs I’ve had they are always willing to give you hours and you are properly trained so when you start working by yourself on the site you won’t feel uncomfortable or unprepared. They are very caring and understanding and will work with you as long as you are honest and a hard worker.

    Cons

    Requires a lot of sleep

    Advice to Management

    Try not to give one employee too much overtime because their body will crash

    I have been working at SOS Security full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy , decent pay, professional appearance

    Cons

    Very poor management, incompitent. No Accountability. Zero communicaton

    Advice to Management

    Reply to your employees. I have not even received a uniform I have been employed well past 90 days. This site is very poorly managed i have been written up for not covering my supervisors shift with 2 hour notice.(not emergency) once i returned to work after being sent home there was no write up that he sent me home. I tried to call and email his manager to explain the issues and now 2 months later i have yet to receive a response. The client sees my supervisors incompetence and waits until i arrive to explain what has happened and I coach him on how the fix the issues. This has happened on multiple instances. I hope the company sees this and shows some effort on fixing these issues. Our client is trying to keep me and change security company's when the contact is over.
