Securitas / bad employer
Do not work for this company!!!
I went through the complaints board here and read about all of the complaints and thought, no they cant be this bad... They are worse.
To start out, I was called for the interview. I was told it was fri at 3 in the afternoon. I wanted this time because I didnt want to leave my other job early. So I showed up at quarter to 3 and the lady tells me that I was supposed to be there at 1. I told her that I was told it was 3 and she said that she wrote me down for 1 so I had to come back the next week... At 3 for real this time.
So I come in the next week and the interview went well. I was offered a job and was told I would work at a certain copper mine... For 10 and hour doing overnight shifts. I was fine with that and called the next week to tell her that I wanted the job. So I went and did my physical and background check with the bci and came in to sign paperwork. She gave me a sheet on when my training was, I was told by her that it was next wed. So I come in next wed and they said that it was yesterday... So again I came back the next week on tuesday. They told me my shift had changed... Same pay but different shift, I did not mind because it was a better shift than before. So I did the training on tuesday then wed rolled around and they called me back in the office. They do their own background checks and she told me that she forgot to enter my social security number in and I have to come back the next week to finish training. I asked her if this would affect my position and she assured me that it would not and that I would still have that shift at 10 an hour.
So I go in for the final day of training and the first thing she tells me is that my shift has changed. And my location has also changed. I was put at walmart for 9 an hour doing swing shifts.
For a while it was not bad. But I needed a couple days off for a family reunion and to be the best man at a wedding. I asked the hr when I was hired about this and she told me that it would be no problem as long as I gave them notice. So a month and a half before the first day I needed off, I submited a time off request. They called me the next day and informed me that they have a policy that for your first 90 days you cannot request time off. This pushed me to the point of looking for another job because I wasnt going to miss my best friends wedding for my job.
The final thing that pushed me to far was when my grandpa died. I was called by my mom when I was on my shift and she told me about it. I was really sad and upset and wanted to be with my family so I called the shift manager. He told me that I could not leave because there was no one to come in and cover me. And that I needed to stay there no matter what. I was furious. I called hr and she was not there but the receptionist was and she found someone to cover me. I will say that again. The receptionist found someone to cover my shift and the shift manager could not...? Just the way he talked it sounds to me like he did not care at all. I called the next day and quit and told them that I was not coming in for any more shifts.
Do not work for this company. They will lie to you and treat you like crap. If you still refuse to listen to me then you will understand in a month or so like I did. Do not make the same mistake I did.
