    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hours you can pick up fast for call outs of vacation .

    Cons

    Start of part time. To make full time you wait for someone to quit or get fired or be on call for extra hours. Crappy medical benefits. Dead end job. Turnover rate pretty high one week vacation after a year. And if you ask for another site or another position they will always deny you. Getting hold of office managers is virtually impossible.
