Securitas Security Services Usa, Inc. Reviews

What is it like working as a Security Officer at Securitas Security Services Usa, Inc.?

Security Officer in Batesville:
"Been good so far."
Pros: They made me weekend shift lead in under a month. I received officer of the month for finding security beach in there tablets. I line my job so far.
Cons: Everyone I work with are not the smartest. I work in Arkansas though so what should I really expect out of them.

Security Officer in Naples:
Pros: The things I do enjoy about my job are that I constantly see new people and the majority of the people I encounter on a daily basis are friendly and appreciative of what service is provided. I also enjoy that I have a good work/ life balance due to scheduling and that over time s readily available should it ever be needed or requested.
Cons: I often feel like the mgmt does not offer promotion potential for their employees or career advancement, and they treat their employees as "disposable" and are only running a warm body company forgetting all employees are State Licensed and did so on their own money. There have been times where mgmt will side with clients to keep a contract while tossing employees under the bus at a clients request, and discriminate against employees. Pay raises are non existent (even after 3 years) the mgmt offers reasons why they can not give you a increase that are contradictory. Some of those reasons include: We have to incorporate the AHCA (Obama Care) now, they also dismiss any reason to increase your pay even if you have not had a write up , yet promote those that have been written up multiple times. If they don't like you personally/ performance they will send you to the farthest post they have from your home to try and get you to quit instead of firing you so they don't have to pay unemployment.
