    Pros

    Good benefits
    Overtime is usually available during the holidays

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours suck
    The people don't have a voice
    No lunch break
    There wasn't really any room to grow in the NCC

    Advice to Management

    Stop protecting supervisors who don't know how to do their jobs.
    I think that the staff should be allowed to evaluate the supervisors and other management in order to better assess the culture of the floor.

    As a security guard there is always work available.

    It can be a hassle when people take off. Management forgets to send coverage so you're stuck there until the next shift change.

    Better communication with the security guards so no one is left stuck at a site for more than 16 hours.

    Pros

    Depends on your site, your manager and the client's attitude toward Securitas. My site is very creative and most people are cool. Because of the nature of the site I am at my hourly rate is above $15.00 . I also get overtime because I work 45 hours per week. Also, I do not work weekends. I wear my own clothes -- so long as I have on a white blouse and dark colored pants my manager doesn't bother about my clothes.

    Cons

    Ugly uniforms.
    Not many PTO days.
    Must work weekends depending on the site.
    Pay can be very very low.
    No growth opportunity .

    Advice to Management

    Not much that management can or will do for you because they serve at the whim of the client.
