    Asking an unarmed guard to engage in a Foot Chase, even if the Guard is young and strong is crazy! The Aerospace Facility where I have been a Security Supervisor for over 30 years has guards, armed with Batons, Pepper Spray, Tasers and Glock 9mm's. Even we don't engage in foot pursuits of suspects unless we basically walk right into them and must engage to effect an arrest. You might be armed to the teeth and still get stuck with a Hunting Knife or a Screwdriver. It is never worth it to chase someone if you are not positive they aren't armed AND you have a back-up officer. Even cops chasing suspects are risking their lives for very little gain. In the Police Academy (central California, 1979) they told us that engaging in "foot pursuits" are a personal call and if not sure if a suspect is armed is for Super Hero Wannabees and TV shows. "Tombstone Courage" was the term our instructors used. That woman is right. You aren't paid to chase suspects without adequate weapons AND a back-up officer…

    Allied Barton has a "quota system" at most of its Posts. At least one of the Security Officers must NOT be African-American. And of course; they know that they don't have to work….just show up. Maybe.

    Most of the Supervisors and Managers are Sodomites; beware hetero-sexual men applicants.

    Women Officers WILL be sexually harrassed (by men AND women).

    Universal Services is sued by me at NYC Small Claims Court for violation,unpaid lost wages.They will be exposed on social media.See other guards being mistreated,harassed,violated of their civil rights.Corporate plantation and most private security companies like to pay minority workers slave labor money to oppress us.

    anyone who doesn't even have prior military or LE experience, shouldn't even go into this job area. with the prior experience, I'm sure they would have caught on to the "ripping off".

    I work for Securitas as a flex officer and some sites pay minimum wage but I make 50 cents above it regardless because I am a flex officer. I do admit some sites no having restroom access are the ones I will not go back to. I have heard we have sites between $9.00 & $18.00 an hour but of course no one will tell me where they are. I am fortunate enough I recieve SSDI benefits and work just to suppplement my income. As a career contract security would not be my first choice.

    most private security companies are the same.and you find the the same issues with most. low pay..from 7.25 to 10 dollars a hour. politics from property management. And as one account manager told me when i worked at allied,all they care about is the client. The client can lie about you and get away with it. they want you gone,your gone no matter how good of a worker you are. Oh yeah can't forget,advancement outside of a supervisor,forgetaboutit!

    i've been in security for 2 years now. in that time of working in house and contract security, most clientele just want a presence, a walmart door greeter.

    they want the cheaper insurance and use security as a punching bag when things go wrong. security will only get better when people "really want" security and not just a pair of eyes and ears. the security guard industry will only get better for the people in the uniforms, when our country faces a everyday threat. i.e. post 9/11.

    As of right now clientele only want a door greeter.

    I swear some of the people at the Allied Barton call center act brain dead and it takes close to 30 minutes up to an hour for someone to answer the damn phone.

    Worst SECURITY COMPANY EVER. THERE IS FAVORITISM, NEPOTISM, and POLITICS IN THIS COMPANY. They do not care about their guards no matter how much they preach that they do. You are expendable in this company, make a little mistake and best believe they will have another guard ready to take your spot with the quickness. The managers, and supervisors are corrupt……………….i remember i became sick one day and i tried to call in sick, mind you i had never called off work before,…… my supervisor and manager literally told me to ride it out……..FUCK A LIE BARTON.
