    I worked at Securitas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free uniforms..kind managers... Based on the site good pay

    Cons

    Biweekly checks for PA.... Some sites have unreasonable pay

    Advice to Management

    Weekly is better and stop accepting cheap contracts. Employees have to provide for their families 7-10$ is unreasonable for the hours and position served. We place our lives on the line to insure that others are safe. McDonald's employees should never make more than us. Its a shame
