Flexible with time off.

They come around a couple of times a month to make sure the client and guard are happy. They give us paid time off, they check with their guards to make sure we are still happy with our posts

Enojoyable

Ensuring staff and patients are safeHighlighting any areas that are not secureLearnt more about peopleYou and your partner working as a team and supporting on anotherHardest part of job - seeing people who were obviously suffering Most enjoyable, being able to help people, calm them, show them where to go in hospital settings, ensuring staff knew and saw security presence

Pros

uniform, working in clean warm and dry place - working with variety of people

Cons

understaffed

Good

Good place to work if you want to make some money fast. Alot of overtime if you want it. It's all about what you make of it. You also get paid on a weekly basis.

Don't work security.

I worked for this company long enough to get a "long tour" pin. And it wasn't worth it. The pay is base level, barely above the minimum and the "benefits" are non existent. You will not get a pay raise unless the company you are contracted to offers it, and that's rare. I knew people who worked for Securitas for over ten years and hadn't received so much as cost of living adjustments, the company doesn't care because they're getting theirs. You are replaceable and will definitely feel that way. Moving up is next to impossible because the people in higher positions only seem to leave when they retire (which happened maybe twice during my time.), and new site contracts are even more rare.

Pros

A paycheck

Cons

Everything, avoid this company.

Toxic

Worst job ever they have favoritism and pick and chooses who to address as well as loose good employees rather than fix toxic management people don’t show up yet they are still on the account and they don’t care about their employees I got fired for being in the hospital and still having the wristband on they don’t care about your personal life they just care if you can come in or not

Ongoing work

Good thing about my post is that I don’t have to sit at a desk all day. I get the opportunity to drive around and ensure the clients properties and assets are protected. Some of the people I work with are great as well.

Quick to get license, but low support from management and pay

If you're looking for a security job and don't have the license yet, they have their own in house trainer. They will hire just about anyone as long as you don't have anything huge on your record. That's the only positive unfortunately. Support from your branch managers is dismal. And good luck getting necessary supplies or uniforms from them in a timely manner. Pay is really low for all that you do as well. If you are an officer at a set location, you're looking at roughly $8-10 an hour. To be a flex officer and travel and learn multiple locations? $11-12. If you're looking for a starting point, this would be a great place, but don't stay. Find a better opportunity after!

Mobing, psikoljik şiddet, haksızlık, ayrımcılık, aşağlama

Hiç bir vasıfa sahip olmayan yönetici kadrosu.. hiç bir konuşma hakkımız yok tam bir işkence yuvası. Köle gibi çalıştırılıp susarsan çalışırsın yoksa kapı orda git diyorlar . Gece yarısı sözlü kovuldum işten, hakkımı savunduğum için , haksızlık yapıyorsunuz dediğim için . 4857 kanununa tamamen aykırı bir çalışma sistemi . Securitas kapatılmalı Adalet yok ! İşçiye hakaret! Mobbing! Psikoljik şiddet!

Not a bad place to start

Ok place to start needs more pay and for management to work on short staff situations other than that the job is laid back nothing too unbearable for the moment

Not the best but not the worst

Management is all over the place, we got no training at all but we're quickly put out to work. The short while I worked there I would get my check through mail a week later than promised even though I had put down direct deposit
