    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ok pay, some benefits, consistent work

    Cons

    Company stresses profit too much and can affect the quality of needed equipment, progressive training, and supervision in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate, train, and develop your employees by providing constructive feedback. Offering and promoting employees to better positions is better that hiring from off the street. Give local managers more budgetary discretion. Needing VP approval for $250 items is not giving them P&L authority.

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

    Pros

    Excellent job site, safety was a number 1 priority, was able to get plenty of hours over the course of a year with the company. HR was always helpful and speedy in processing any requests or answering any questions. Overall support from the company was great.

    Cons

    Good quality officers are hard to come by which put us short staffed on many occasions and pay isn't good but it's fitting for the job.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better quality officers

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

    Pros

    You can move from job site to job site if you want to, room for advancement, 401k insurance available , most job positions I have seen are pretty simple if you have common sense and you're a good worker in general.

    Cons

    Some sites overtime is not allowed unless emergencies arise. At times communication with management is lacking but not terrible. Haven't seen where we can advance our pay through further training.

    Advice to Management

    Always be straight forward with the people you're hiring. Give the job description in the raw so you don't waste your time or your other managers/supervisors time with someone who is going to quit right out of the gate because their job description was sugar coated.

    Pros

    Good pay for college kids or retired folk depending on the post, I have an understanding supervisor who’s pretty cool.

    Cons

    The HR department sucks and is rude in IL, don’t offer extra hours to the people who genuinely need it, don’t expect to be checked on by anyone in management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate of the people who work for you.

    Pros

    If you are reliable they will give you steady work. Many different types of sites and positions. Decent insurance benefits.

    Cons

    Generally no pay raises. Pay depends on site you're assigned to. Management doesn't take care of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more concerned with the welfare of your employees and less with office politics. Increase pay and you'll be able to recruit higher quality candidates.
