    I have been working at Securitas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work, management is appreciative of consistent and reliable workers, manageable while undertaking schooling.

    Cons

    Pay is not great. Benefits are not worth getting. Management could be better. Jobs are revolving doors so you're constantly getting harassed while at home to cover shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Introduce shift differentials for those shifts you're having difficulty keeping staffed. Incentivize workers with pay increases for respectable work; Personally, I'm tired of being paid the same amount as someone who's constantly calling out or consistently falling short of company standards.

    Good job, eh on promoting. Steady source of income typically but never a way forward. Free uniform to borrow and typically free guard card

    No promotions, often hired externally. They claim to be all about internal promotion but don't reflect it in their practices
