Lousy place to work in senior management. Too many processes, too much red tape, too many responsibilities for the pay. I shouldn’t have taken this position!
Pros
Reimbursable lunches
Cons
Too many processes and spreadsheets

This company has really bad ethics and seems to have no concern for the health and safety of it's employees. I started working for Securitas as a result of a TUPE at the National Gallery. After Securitas took over the security department they changed almost everything even after telling us they wouldn't. Significant cuts to staff were made and security standards have dropped. Most of the original staff have been made redundant or resigned.
Pros
None
Cons
Incompetant managers

The job is what you think it’s normal security work. Your pretty much doing what you expect security to do when manning a fixed posting. You come in in the morning. Assist with morning bag check and observe the cameras. Then you run individuals who want to come in through a metal detector. It’s really not too complicated. My only complaint is they sometimes forget to inform me of changes or school cancellations. Ultimately my only real gripe is the overpriced insurance. It’s impossible to pay for the company insurance with what I make weekly. Chances are I’ll have to try my luck with the ACA
Pros
Weekends off like normal folks
Cons
Health insurance is too expensive to afford on what they pay

Set schedule. Easy work. Predictable work. Can sit down a lot. Could bring a huge lunch box and fill it with ice, drinks, and food. Call in all clear every hour. Check for peculiar activity and hazards
Pros
All alone to do work
Cons
All alone

Overall, I enjoyed my time with Securitas. my job was easy but important, and my direct supervisor was an easy guy to get along with. I felt like those whom I interacted with trusted me to do the right thing and it allowed me to feel safe in my work space.The upper management could use some work. Consistently losing emails, messing up PTO, refusing to pay out sick days, it was rough when I contracted COVID-19, had all the symptoms and still needed to visit urgent care just before Christmas to obtain a doctor's note. Overall, if you are looking for an entry-level security job, or want to have a relatively easy time working, I recommend Securitas
Pros
Easy to work some jobs
Cons
Middle managers are not very helpful

The work site is great love the job. Securitas Management is rude, unreliable. Does not respond to questions or problems. Will hang up on supervisors experiencing problems when they call. Does not communicate changes in schedule when you are the one working and waiting on a replacement. Instructs supervisors to call and harass employees. When there are problems in the payroll system it has taken months and problems are still not corrected. Just get excuses from office staff no problem solved.
Pros
Good people at work site
Cons
Benefits, management

Empresa nefasta, gente enchufada.Le hacen la vida imposible a quienes no les r√≠en la gracia, no tienen principios, no les importa tu vida lo que puedas sufrir o el da√Īo que puedan causarte.Tienen gente de enchufada.Si cometes un error y no eres amiguito de ellos te despiden con cosas que no existen.Se la dan qu√© tienen cach√© y de eso ya lo perdieron por el camino.No son humanitarios y nunca pero nunca cumplen sus promesas.Mentiras tras mentiras.No valoran tus esfuerzos, tus buenas obras.
Pros
Pago puntual
Cons
Despidos disciplinarios

Worked at worse, it could have been better.1 pro, always had enough uniforms...would send you a voucher for whatever you need..... Management was questionable. Any major issues they just tried to sweep under the rug instead of correcting them.
Pros
Uniforms
Cons
Compensation and management

Securitas er et vekterfirma som i bunn og grunn gir blanke i deg som ansatt. Og selv om du kommer til √• ha kjempehyggelige kollegaer, spennende arbeidsoppgaver og varierte dager s√• er du p√• slutten av dagen "en ressurs" som kommer til √• bli brukt og misbrukt. Spist opp og spyttet ut n√•r du er ferdig. Du kan oppleve √• f√• tildelt "0% kontrakter", slik at Securitas ledelsen kan gi og ta fra deg vakter slik som de √łnsker. De kan ogs√• kombinere dette med √• gi deg midlertidig kontrakt med 1-6 mnd varighet. Slik at du aldri vet sikkert om du har jobb 6 mnd fram i tid. Og selv om du kanskje har en jobb p√• papiret, s√• kan du risikere √• f√• 0 timer. Du kommer til √• oppleve at du f√•r meldinger hvert 5. minutt av en eller annen stakkars omr√•dekoordinator som f√•r inn l√łpende bestillinger og m√• sende ut fellesmelding til alle vektere om ledige ekstraskift med null forh√•ndsvarsel (aka oppstart N√Ö du m√• m√łte opp p√• xxx sted)Dersom du gj√łr noe bra eller gj√łr en god jobb s√• finst det ikke skryt eller gode tilbakemeldinger. Derimot kommer du til √• f√• en innkalling til m√łte med ledelsen p√• dagen dersom du er s√• uheldig √• gj√łre noe galt. (tips: ta med deg tillitsvalgt dersom dette skjer. ikke m√łt opp alene, og ikke signer p√• NOEN papirer).Og dersom du er s√• gal til at du st√•r i jobben i x antall √•r, opptjener deg respekt blant ansatte og ledelsen s√• vil du ikke bli kompensert for ekstra stress eller arbeidstid dersom du plutselig har tittel som omr√•deleder. Sist men ikke minst: Securitas har 0 tolleranse for tillitsbrudd etc. Det vil si at alle s√•kale 'tillitsbrudd' ender med oppsigelse.¬†-¬†more...
Pros
Ektravakter ved √łnske.
Cons
ingen kompensasjon for områdeledere, ny kontrakt hver 4 mnd med 0% stilling, telefonen går i ett med meldinger om ekstravakter, null skryt fra ledelsen kun kjeft

They have some good post. But also some bad post. Working wal-mart is not fun or good at all. If you like standing for 12hr shifts then this is the place for you.
Pros
Some post you get free food.
Cons
Short breaks and pay rate is not enough.

Any opportunity to add more workload and responsibility to the guards while not adding any further compensation the company will take. They have no problem doubling your workload and keeping your pay the same.
Pros
Its better than no job at all
Cons
Lack of appropriate compensation, management does not look out for their employees.

Great place to start a career in Security. You just have to be on top of them because management sucks and They won’t give you your guard card unless you ask. Also , they will mess up your pay & won’t fix it until you tell them too. Other than that I loved working there & plan on going back.
Pros
They help you get you guard card
Cons
No benefits, A lot of Payment mistakes, lack of communication with employees & management

The benefits are horrible and the health insurance is basically unaffordable for a less than mediocre plan. 401k is terrible..they only match 10cents on the dollar for the first 30 percent. Keep in mind this is a contract job so do not expect to get a raise even if the cost of living goes up. What u agree to make is what you'll be making until you quit. The vacation time also sucks..u have to work 3 years before u even get 2 weeks of vaca. If you work on one site and u see another site paying more and want to switch..forget about it. They will hire off the street before they move u. The client is control of everything you do not securitas. They are the flunkies for whatever the client wants even if it goes above and beyond what u signed up for. Additional work will be added but no additional money.
Pros
Guranteed job..people call out ..come late..uniform busted but they still have a job
Cons
Everything above

The work is pretty easy. But the management sucks, they have one for two good managers. If your looking for easy pay check and no advancement then it’s job for you. Each site makes different rate. But most of the sites you get low balled at.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
Management, time off and pay

Losers they don’t support their dedicated employees . Office managers don’t support their employees . One sided employees are just a dime a dozen. Just looking at the bottom line
