Company Culture

You get back what you put into it.

Teamwork

Everyone has a common goal and is pretty much easy going.

Freedom to work independently

Within reason

Gender Equality

No favoritism just sometimes you need a certain number of each to do searches. And the bigger guys tend to get picked for guarding the stage, for obvious reasons.

Attitude towards older colleagues

All ages are employed.

Career Development

It tapers off for most, after being guard carded.

Overall compensation for your work

It's higher pay when you become guard carded, and more opportunities to work are available.

Office / Work Environment

Doesn't apply really, only on occasion do you end up in the office.

Environmental Friendliness

Everyone usually enjoys working and at certain venues you see certain people that you don't see all the time.

Work-Life Balance

You choose what jobs you will work, so it fits in to anyone's existing schedule.

Company Image

We are often working the same venue as other security companies, and I never wish I was part of some other company rather than at CSC.

Job Security

Plenty of part-time work.

Handicapped Accessibility

I've seen someone who was temporarily handicapped like a cast or something but not if you can't be on your feet the whole shift.

Workplace Safety

They always try to be accommodating especially if the outside conditions are harsh. Like providing jackets, rain ponchos or hand warmers.

Challenging Work

Not too difficult, but each venue has it's own requirements.

Inclusive / Diverse

The jobs may be similar but the experience is always different.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The only thing that bugs me is they don't have direct deposit option, for getting your paycheck.

What I like about the company

I like the variety of jobs and the fact you choose how often you want to work.

What I dislike about the company

The overall issues experienced at Coachella like camping and passes when working out there.

Company Culture

BAD to WORSE

Support from management

Management is the worst

Teamwork

There are a few (like 2) Supervisors that work as a team, but all the others are bad at there jobs.

Freedom to work independently

I know that security is a team job, but someone is always there to criticize what you are doing even if it is the correct job.

Internal Communication

The communication on events changes from each event. Why not stay with one way and stay with it.

Gender Equality

They don't hire the same of Men, Woman, Black, White, etc..

Attitude towards older colleagues

Very Bad

Career Development

NONE

Overall compensation for your work

Not that good, or in other words BAD

Office / Work Environment

They don't take care of everyone equally

Environmental Friendliness

Pending on who you are assigned to very bad (i.e. you supervisor and/or group)

Work-Life Balance

Not when you have to be there at O dark thirty, when employees don't really need to be there that early.

Company Image

It is only as good as Management, which is BAD

Job Security

They don't care if you stay or leave.

Handicapped Accessibility

Even if you are the employee the handicap accessibility you are not able to take the elevators without pulling hairs.

Workplace Safety

It's alright, but it could be better.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stay with a decision and one only don't change every event.

What I like about the company

Didn't really like anything that is why I am quitting this year
