    Pros

    better than being unemployed or homeless

    Cons

    The firm does the bare bones minimum for employees. They did not even pay the deposit on my cleaned turned in uniform after I quit. They only paid minimum wage, after offering to pay more than that, but never did. The US department of labor only requires minimum wage in non-overtime weeks, the firm knows what they can get away with. They are losing customers and employees to other Security firms.

    Advice to Management

    Terminate the Denver management, and reorganize.

    Pros

    Its a job, nothing more

    Cons

    Managers don't care about their officers. There is a lack of pay and no health benefits that were once offered.

    Advice to Management

    Get over the fear of being sold. You still have accounts that need good guards to do the work in total, not slack off. Officers need experience. I have 20+ years of experience and I have been placed at a dead end site. No pay, no benefits, no perks, no hope=Dead Job
