    I worked at Valor Security Services full-time

    Pros

    I can say as working as a director for this company, it was honestly a good company to work for. They had plenty of resources for the officers and management team. The regional VPs i dealt with were supremely professional and definitely had your best interests in mind when working with you.

    Cons

    Only downfall i had at my location was pay, it was far too low for what i was doing, but i know most sites pay pretty well.

    I have been working at Valor Security Services (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a great company and has good reputation all over the country and also overseas.

    It was a great experience to work with valor and there is nothing I don't like about the company

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

    Pros

    I can't think of none. I'm just typing to fulfill the twenty word minimum but really I can't think of one pro. Wait...atleast you're guaranteed a forty hour week.

    Cons

    They care very little about their employees. They look down on the guards. And we had 3 different Security directors in one year!

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your workers and stop looking down on us.

    Pros

    They treat you like family and there is always room for promotion. You will be a better security officer as time goes on because they train you over and over on different things you need to know.

    Cons

    No cons if you are a hard worker. No cons if you are someone who is always on time. No cons if you enjoy report writing. No cons if you are the type of person who is willing to work with and teach a co-worker that is not as knowledgeable as you are.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. If it isn't broken, it doesn't need to be fixed. Take more pride in your military employees.
