    I have been working at Whelan Security part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have some awesome and understanding co-workers, supervisors and bosses. You get to be a part of a big family and for some games you get to watch the game (while doing your job of course.)

    Cons

    During most events you have to engage with some very upset fans because they don't understand the policies and procedures that we are enforcing to make sure that everyone is safe and to make sure the event or game runs smoothly.

    I worked at Whelan Security full-time

    Pros

    Lots of caring people work there--does not apply to upper management.

    Cons

    Upper management seems pretty dimwitted. CEO gets fitted for hours in the office for expensive custom suits, while pushing his religious beliefs to all. Suits cost more than week's salary for a security guard. Culture is fake. The servant leader philosophy is a load of excrement.

    Advice to Management

    Sell!

    Thank you for your candid feedback. I believe you might work for Whelan Event Staffing Services (WESS) as opposed to Whelan Security. Regardless, I would like to hear more about your employment... More

    Pros

    Company is a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Hire managers that have actually done security work before and understand clients needs. Stop with these sucker so call managers that dont know anything and scared to go the extra mile. Interviewed for a position and was given it. Then a week later was told I was not rewarded after I was told I was promoted. This just shows you folks will lie and wont care how much you put into working and being an excellent and caring officer. I've learn to just be with God. And continue on giving him praise.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lieing
