    Pros

    Easy work and company hires anyone.

    Cons

    Min wage and they dont seem to give raises from what I hear from coworkers. Work a lot of hours but that can be a positive if you like the OT

    Pay better. Really that simple. Maybe turnover wouldnt be so high.

    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time

    Pros

    Easy work
    Plenty of hours
    Plenty of locations to choose from
    Job security
    Ability to transfer to another state
    Be your own boss
    Probably find yourself working alone
    Reliable, set hours

    Cons

    Not the brightest crayons in the bowling alley for co-workers, if you catch my drift
    LOW PAY
    Raises don't exist. Pay rate relies on the contract.
    No time off, including holiday pay, sick leave, or PTO of any kind. Instead, you receive a yearly bonus. No actual time off is provided, only implied and discouraged
    A dumb move by a co-worker could lose a contract. You'll still be employed, just somewhere else, probably not as nice.
    Unfulfilling work

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate that management stays in their courtyard. I do however wish there was a system in place for reporting co-workers. We lost a contract with more than 10 guards on it by the actions of one person.

    High is payer than the competition

    Pay is still low for the amount of hours you HAVE to put in and no one shows up for their shifts and working 6 days a week, mess ups on pay
