    bait and switch. Once accept job for what applied, they switch the location and shift on you.

    don't push recruiters and local managers to hurry up and fill positions for client to get money. don't lie to job candidates about where they work and what shift. be honest. they charge you for everything like equipment, W2s and uniforms.

    Pros

    don't know, there may be some on southside virginia, but not Richmond

    Cons

    untrustworthy, deceitful, arrogant, surreptitious, don't abide by DCJS regulation or IRS rules. Have not investigated how many state violations guilty of.

    Security officers are people too. Its a shame your company works them for management to get paid.

    I have been working at Top Guard Security full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They provide uniforms. If you have open availability overtime will never be an issue for you.

    Cons

    You are only a number for the company. They do not care about you as a person. Communication within the office and to the guards is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop caring so much about your top dollar and more about the personnel you have working for you. You are hiring people not robots. Don't force a supervisor to keep a guard because the client likes them if the guard doesn't follow regulations and isn't good for the site overall.

    Long hours if not relived on time.

    Try to allow a "temporary staffing" scheduling in case of last minute demands from clientele such as an automated messaging system that employees call to aknowledge that they are able to work the day they call in.
