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

    Pros

    Pays pretty good and you get health and life insurance but don't expect to get a day off to use your health insurance.

    Cons

    I have only been working at Securitas for about a month and they use scare tactics to keep you in line. The higher ups are not good with communication and could car less if you have gone 21 days with out a day off because you a too afraid to say no. They walk all over you but hey at least you have money from all that mandatory OT but your too drained to spend it. I am already looking for a different job because money of not worth my life. If I keep this up I will die of sleep deprivation.

    Advice to Management

    Advancement? In your dreams. I suppose if you stick to your guns and don't like a life outside of work and no sleep you could eventually advance but most don't last very long.

    Pros

    Things can be pretty great depending on the relationship between the client, site supervisor, and area managers.

    Cons

    Managers/supervisors don't get paid enough to deal with all the crap they have to deal with, so sometimes it's difficult to get them motivated enough to interact with you.

    Advice to Management

    Try to convince your clients to like your officers and treat them like humans. It makes a world of difference.
