      Great stepping stone in security career

      Apr 30, 2016 - Hospital Security Officer in Spokane Valley, Spokane, WA, Optional[WA]

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decent pay, good co-workers and upper management never bugs you. I enjoyed working at the hospital. It is a hands on security job for the most part.

      Cons

      No raises unless there is a new contract done with hospital and poor benefits. There is also a pretty big turnover of employees.

      Pros

      decent pay (not the best by any stretch). if you're related to someone in the office you will get promoted quickly, otherwise you're stuck at the bottom and screwed.

      Cons

      hours, management is incompetent (site supervisors, office staff). no communication.

      Pros

      - Tons of overtime opportunities - Decent pay (dependent on site) - Great for newcomers (like myself) that are interested in the Security industry - Easy interview

      Cons

      - Management seems to have a lack of organization and communication between sites - Management is extremely slow and sometimes even unwilling to help new employees - Some sites are extremely boring (i.e. only responsibility is to stay awake)
