    This is a horrible company to work for. They don't pay overtime, they mess up hours so you can have a short check. They always loose contracts and I was laid off for two months. I had to find another job.

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

    Pros

    I liked not being tied to one site, I got to travel over a three state area to different locations.

    Cons

    There were times it seemed they did not care about the safety of the officers in bad weather. You would call in due to weather conditions that you or your vehicle could not handle and they would do everything in their power to get you to come in, or go to a remote location.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out. There were a lot of unneeded firings and people quitting, that could have been avoided if management had taken more time with the people, and training / teaching better.

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

    Pros

    There are opportunities to gain some extra hours from time to time. If you want to work full time, chances are you will get it.

    Cons

    I was not aware you could post reviews about the company. I just found these looking for the office number. From what I have seen, a lot of these people posting are bashing the company. There are negatives with every company you work for, that is just how it is going to be. I see that it was already mentioned once, but in terms of pay, I do feel the company could be more generous.

    I feel that by giving your employees raises, you show that they are of value to you. If you work hard and never get a complaint, never have a sick day and your never late to work, you should be rewarded. If you enjoy your job, you should make a little more money over time, especially if you stick with that job for a long time.

    I do feel that raises are important to show the employees that their hard work does pay off, that they are valued and what they are doing is not going unnoticed.

    In terms of CONS that is the only thing I could think of. But the company is not a terrible company to work for as many of the other posts may show. As I said all companies have their negative sides, its not just one company.

    Advice to Management

    Consider giving raises as a way to show the appreciation to the officers for their dedication and professionalism towards the clients over the years.
