    "Site-specific"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - National Account Manager 

    I worked at SOS Security full-time

    Pros

    Easy job but depending on the officer's confidence and willingness to learn and excel

    Cons

    New hires are not properly on-boarded and do not understand their basic duties. Officers did not feel valued or empowered and created turn-over and poor job performance.

    Advice to Management

    Needs improvement on the support of its site-supervisors and officers. Needs improvement in training and clarity on policies, and procedures.

    I worked at SOS Security full-time

    Pros

    easy job, easy money. they provide free parking

    Cons

    -they take advantage of employees and not give credit for their work/help -if you can't stay for OT be prepared for the supervisor to give you a hard time and make your shift a living hell. -ALWAYS missing hours and checks are ALAWAYS short and take almost a MONTH to pay what you're owed or 2 weeks if you're lucky -very hostile environment!! -supervisors are SUPER unprofessional. They start rumors about other... guards to start problems/drama against other guards -there's no POINT! in making 5 or 10 reports or having witnesses if you're having problems with a supervisor or other guard because management swear they "NEVER RECIEVED ANYTHING" or "THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT" -no communication what so ever -it's always the same guards doing the work the rest just sit in hiding places and do nothing but watch Netflix for their 8hr shift

    Advice to Management

    my advice to management is.. PLEASE pay attention to the complaints! there's actually good employees working for this company and they are taking advantage of them and being treated wrong in all kinds of ways by supervisors and employees and you have these good workers quitting the job because of the treatment the supervisors are giving them. management should do more research on someone before giving them the... title of "supervisor"

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Easy job, some good coworkers

    Cons

    Management really doesn’t care about you, your outside life, or your family. This job only wants your man priority to be this job. Management would find reasons to write you up for no reason

    Advice to Management

    Do better

    I worked at SOS Security

    Pros

    Free suit, easy job, and sometimes cool co-workers. If you have no goals in life and are happy getting paid $12 an hour to stand in one spot for 7 hours a day, this is a fantastic job.

    Cons

    no raises, standing all day, no respect, poor communication from superiors, mind numbingly boring, drama, work environment, can't leave until your relief gets there... and they're late... all the time. Can you stay late? Do you have a life outside of work? We don't care. Can you work a 12 hour shift because somebody doesn't want to come in?

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a raise! Maybe the ones that actually show up for their shift on time? This company is a joke.
