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

    Pros

    Getting a job with Securitas is fairly easy so long as you have a clean background and can pass a drug test. This is a good company to work for overall. I have worked for multiple branch offices and each one has had its own pros and cons. But as a whole, I have thoroughly enjoyed working for the company. You get to see and experience many places that the general public does not. Most of the officers I have worked with both as a regular officer and as a supervisor have been really great people. Getting time off isn't all that difficult which is nice. The majority of management is actually good at leadership. The new Branch Manager in Charlotte is really great and has had a positive impact on this Branch Office. Most sites are laid back and enjoyable to work at. Pay is better then minimum wage and the job is definitely better then retail or fast food. Like any job, you get out of it what you put into it. If you strive to succeed and put in hard work then there is the ability to move up in the company over time.

    Cons

    Pay can be a little low for some of the hard work that is done and there aren't many opportunities for raises. Benefits are a little expensive. Sometimes it is really hard to get uniform pieces which is not good because 50% of the job is a professional appearance. Some of the people hired to be officers really have no business being officers and I think the quality of who they hire could be better at times.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to hire quality individuals to increase retention and make sure that you provide them with uniform pieces when they need it so that all officers can succeed. Setting up some sort of structure for pay raises or attainable bonuses would be really nice as an incentive to stay with the company.

    Pros

    Opportunity to advance within the company

    Cons

    Some of the managers do not care about the officers. They ignore you and do not return calls when you have issues on a site

    Pros

    It is not a hard job to do and you can learn a lot from guards that work at different sites.

    Cons

    There are no raises unless you go to another site that pays more.
    Moving up in the company is not easy as well because management is not willing to move people around.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified security guards instead of hiring people to fill a position within the company.

    Pros

    Honestly cannot think of any, due to this company having so many issues in so many areas; therefore, no positives at this time.

    Cons

    When hired, you are guaranteed a set number of hours per week. However, they do not guarantee those hours once in the door. They will also incorrectly pay you. You must review all paycheck stubs to ensure accuracy of pay.

    Advice to Management

    If the employees are constantly complaining about pay, benefits, etc.... it is probably a good idea to check into that! No one wants to be employed by a discrediting organization!
