Company Culture

On paper the culture looks really good. An action their culture is not what they say.

Support from management

There is no support from management. The site manager will slice your throat from behind. And the supervisors are terrified to support any individual employee for fear that they will lose their own jobs.

Teamwork

There is no team. Everyone are out for themselves.

Freedom to work independently

Independent work is not going to happen within this company. They tell you what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. If it is not done exactly as they state and demand then you will be written up.

Internal Communication

The only communication you get is if you are going to receive a reprimand.

Gender Equality

Most of the staff are male there are some female guards.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There are older people on staff. The new site manager gives them a harder time than younger people.

Career Development

To be trained forearm boarding is one thing. To gain any other training unless you do it on your own does not happen.

Overall compensation for your work

They don't pay enough for having to put up with all the crap you have to put up with. The insurance is horrible as they do not pay the way that has been presented.

Office / Work Environment

The environment is extremely toxic!

Environmental Friendliness

There is no true environmental friendliness as it is a very cut-throat, back - stabbing place to work, by all who work there.

Work-Life Balance

There is no work-life balance. They expect you to work anytime they call you. People are calling out constantly so you have to work or face being written up.

Company Image

On paper the image is great, however, the truth is it is not what they say

Job Security

There is no job security with this company. The HR department will make decisions about your job without even talking to you. When this is discovered and you discuss it with them they quickly change the subject. The site manager will put things in your file that you don't even know have been placed there. If you go to work for this company, watch your back!

Handicapped Accessibility

All handicapped regulations are in place.

Workplace Safety

The workplace safety regulations are in place. Nothing special.

Challenging Work

This is security, it is not rocket science.

Inclusive / Diverse

It used to be very inclusive and accepting. The new site manager came on board and he does not care for gay people. Therefore he finds reasons to nail you for any little thing.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Before making decisions about an employee, talk to them first. You need to listen to all sides. Your HR department does not do that. It is not always your managers who are in the right.

What I like about the company

One supervisor, who shall remain nameless, was fair and honest and friendly.

What I dislike about the company

The site manager, who shall remain nameless, is back - stabbing, sneaky, underhanded, and would lie through his teeth to save his own self.

Suggestions for improvement

  • In the positions where using your personal cell phone is required to carry out your daily duties. A compensation should be offered or a company phone

What I like about the company

Management has worked the less important position so they understand the daily struggle their employees go through. The company communicates three mass email nation wide. Great way to keep everyone up to date. They allow employees to create their own schedule in certain departments

What I dislike about the company

When it comes to open positions only a select few are told about them. Everyone should be allowed to know about the position, apply and go from there.

Company Culture

They expect you to be loyal but show no loyalty back.

Support from management

The management has no real training or tact. They treat their employees awfully and are known to yell when upset.

Teamwork

Nope. Not unless they have to.

Freedom to work independently

I still am not 100% sure what any the executives did except travel a lot and get angry with us when things didn't work out correctly.

Internal Communication

Awful. They don't care about your opinion and if you have one that's different than theirs, it's wrong.

Gender Equality

Unless you go to the local bar with your managers and executives after work to get drunk and party, don't expect them to notice you.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not at all. They'll replace you in a second if it saves them money.

Career Development

Not unless you are friends with the family that owns the company.

Overall compensation for your work

Expect to work a lot for nothing.

Office / Work Environment

Lots of drunk people hanging out at the office after work.

Environmental Friendliness

They don't care as long as they make money

Work-Life Balance

They always want more. Unless you want to live and breathe this company, don't work here.

Company Image

No. Married co workers sleeping with other co workers. Lots of drinking. NOT PROFESSIONAL!

Job Security

People were always being let go or fired. High turnaround

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes. That's the nicest thing u can say about them.

Workplace Safety

It is a secure building; the people not so much

Challenging Work

No, worker bee kind of work.

Inclusive / Diverse

They don't care.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Learn how to be professional?

What I like about the company

The lower level employees all worked very hard.

What I dislike about the company

Honestly, pretty much everything. It was a very unprofessional environment. The family that owns it used it as their own piggy bank. They throw lots of parties where all the execs get drunk and have HR issues.
