    I worked at Securitas full-time

    Pros

    They were very proactive in providing information to the employees of updates and site changes. It was a good company to work for.

    Cons

    The pay was not competitive and the benefits were not good at all. It was a strain to work for them because there was no paid sick time either.

    Advice to Management

    Management team was good but need to perfect screening to ensure the right people are assigned to major accounts.

    Pros

    They will hire you and give you plenty of work. Send you anywhere they are short staffed if you are willing to drive the distance.

    Cons

    Pay is very low and as a flex officer anytime they send you to a new job site and you have to be show your job functions,they reduce your hourly pay and with not pay you mileage unless they absolutely have too.Company is all about making money,but the company isn’t about the security officer making money. High turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat officers with respect and quit putting all the job sites contract money in yours and corporates pockets.
