    I worked at Whelan Security full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pretty easy job with simple task. Vehicle security driving around site passes time. Enjoyable co-workers. Flexible shifts as much OT as you want. Someone's always taking off

    Cons

    Low pay, No benefits, long hours sometime 12-16 hours. Incompetent site management. Over night paid more but was hard to stay focused. Not really a con but definitely not for people who like to sleep or have a life during the day. Working all night disrupts sleep patterns especially if you have things to do during the day like college classes. Always tired.

    Pros

    You get options to go to different events.

    Cons

    Some of the positions to work aren't as good as the others. You could get stuck being an usher at the front gates checking bags or you can get put in a stadium where you can watch the game and do security as well
