    I have been working at Skanna Systems Investigations full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work isnt to physically demanding, good work environment, and also shifts can be covered by other guards if need be.

    Cons

    Unsteady working hours, schedules dont stay the same for longer then a few days, underpaid guards for workload, nearly never enough supplies required to do the job properly. (Even little things like pens)

    Advice to Management

    Take in what guards are saying and how there can be improvements to make operations run more smoothly.

    Pros

    The employees for the most part get along well. If you want law enforcement experience to further your career elsewhere like me, it's a place to start.

    Cons

    Employees have to pester for a raise, and then get less than they were promised if any. I never got a raise even after my probationary period. Despite several rediculous incidents jeopardizing the very lives of their employees, management did nothing. We were frequently short hours on our pay, sometimes a whole week. They allow the client to verbal abuse their employees because if you quit-like me-they can replace you from a never ending pool of lesser candidates who will do the same job for 25-50 cents less per hour. A box jockey temp on their first day can get paid more per hour than Skanna's most senior middle managers on-site.

    Advice to Management

    Lip service is cheaper than giving out raises to deserving subordinates, however the risk of losing a lucrative contract because of departing experienced staff is not wise. Minimum wage went up during my year plus tenure and we all noticed. I doubt morale could be any lower.
    Why not make a phone call or send an e-mail once in a while and pretend to take an interest in your employee's work? I would've stayed if I heard the words: "Good job" a bit more frequently than never.
