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

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

I have been with the company a month now so I’m still new however so far no complaints all the management has been respectful and polite all post and job assignments are different but mine has been very consistent and relaxed only downside is getting stuck with a 12/16 hour shift when someone calls off but that’s not the company’s fault and atleast your getting paid for it all in all I would recommend the job
Pros
Freedom, relaxing
Cons
Long shifts

Securitas lost the contract at the facility I worked at, no doubt due to poor management. People didn’t show up for work, walked off post and didn’t do their job with no repercussions. A new company took over and I promptly returned all of the Securitas equipment issued to me. Imagine my surprise a month later when I get a letter from a collection agency for $350 for non-returned company uniforms. Fortunately I saved the receipt for the return of my equipment and was able to thwart that attempted money grab by Securitas. Sorry to say the Securitas’s other money grab didn’t end so well. Securitas used to send a check for your vacation time on your 1 year anniversary. They stopped that, they said because they wanted you to take a vacation. The real reason is that if you leave the company with vacation time on the books you aren’t compensated for the time. Something they failed to mention.Veterans, Securitas gets a tax credit (more money for them) when they hire you but will screw you out of your benefits too when you leave the company.
Pros
None

The job as a security Officer if very productive with this company because you definitely need to be able to switch security sites wherever needed. If you can’t do that then you’ll be stuck in one spot for a very long time with no advancement.

Don't apply here if your new to security and keep in mind if you do that this company like many large security companies is notorious for ghosting it's employees.

On its surface the company seems to be above board and professional. I was recruited from another security company to be an account manager with the promise of having my own branch in the area in approximately 3 to 6 months. 14 months later still receiving the run around with misdirection and deception. I was removed from my account with " a decision was made for new leadership" and nothing else. There was no reason given. I had never been disciplined, counseled or told I needed to do better or change anything. I never was told anything negative from the client or my company. I was removed without any reason given. The Branch Manager was abysmal. Nothing was "ever his fault" The account suffered being critically short for months. No leadership and severe lack of integrity. The Roseville branch lacks follow through, calls and email go un-responded to. Uniforms and PPE were like pulling teeth to get. The staff at the account were tremendous. They did a very difficult job being continuously short staffed and suffering from lack of support from the branch. Your results may be different.
Pros
Pay for the position was good.
Cons
unorganized, poor ethics, follow through, continuous staffing shortage. Unresponsive branch.

Horrible company. Barely worked here 1 month and my experience has been horrible. First they hired me only to tell me they didn't have any open positions that matched my availability, then started going on about how its somehow my fault since i "changed my availibilty" (I explicitly indicated in writing my availability). Eventually i got an assignment by luck, with a lower pay than agreed upon. Throughout the whole hiring process management and HR were extremely incompetent and disorganized. Impossible to reach anyone or get any answers about anything. Everytime i call HR, IT or my local office i keep getting the runaround and no one seems to know anything. I am genuinely shocked that this is how the SECOND LARGEST SECURITY COMPANY IN THE USA operates! If i was a contractor I would be scared to hire them as security.
Pros
None
Cons
Disorganized management, low pay, impossible to reach anyone.

It’s boring depending on where you work. But you get paid too pretty much sit around if your into that. Company is ok but benefits are god awful, better off getting state benefits if you really need or want them. Room for advancement in company though if you stick around.

Easy job but no chance for advancement and no pay raises. What you make is all you will ever make seniority doesn’t count for anything and you must do 3 days of training with no pay

Securitas is a job for people who are in school and or retired. Securitas is not long term. The pay is bad, no advancement and if there's a family emergency you can not leave no matter what. Job security is not there.
Pros
Laid back
Cons
No PTO, no advancement, . No overtime.

everything about the job. Management doesn't support you in anything. Even though you're trained to serve and protect if you do anything in the regards to protection you get disciplined and or terminated. You have ZERO paid time off unless your'e management. The only time off you get is sick time and even then if you use it they discipline you. They claim they give out bonuses but you never receive them and if you inquire about the raise or bonus they "get back to you" and make up some excuse as to why you didn't get it even if you have paperwork to prove it. They have zero regard to health and safety during this Covid crisis. The only thing Securitas worries about is their bottom line NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!! I would never work for them again even if they paid me corporate wages.
Pros
You have a job and get paid.
Cons
Everything
