    Current Employee - Security Officer in Auburn Hills, MI (US)

    Pros

    There is always ample opportunity for overtime if you want it. It is fairly easy to transfer if you ever want to move. The jobs seem to always be there.

    Cons

    The home offices of each district do not all run the same. Some are great but some are also awful. Paperwork has been lost quite a few times leading to retaking many certification courses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pop in and check up on employees often and regularly this will keep people on their toes and give more incentive for them to stay on task. If your employees know you are never coming in on a weekend or after hours they get lax.

    Current Employee - Security Officer/Receptionist in Saint Louis, MO (US)

    Pros

    Depending on the location, it is decent pay for not having to work very hard. Some locations offer a set schedule. It is a professional environment.

    Cons

    Absolutely no sick time and very limited vacation. If employee is sick they will be written up. Terrible benefits. Little room for advancement. Also, you are forced to take off holidays without pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide employees with better time-off policies. Give employees a couple paid sick days a year and holiday pay.

    Pros

    They have a lot of team orientated things. They train you in many different things. The sights are amazing and you can do more than a lot of other companies. The benefits are amazing! And you can grow with the company. There is always a way to move up.

    Cons

    The pay is not as much as you do for it. There are certain people they hire that should have never been hired to begin with.

    Pros

    This company is the 2nd top private security company nationwide, it's more professional than the other security companies out there. And there majority of the security officers are unionized with SEIU local 32bj. They now have Vacation pay, Sick Leave, Personal Days, Holiday Pay, Medical, Dental , Vision ,and 401k plan.

    But this company don't help there security officers to advance to the next level ,and they never look out for you while on unemployment & on reassignment with the company for 90 days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to look out more for there security officers when it comes downs to career opportunity, and reassigment to another worksite.
