Complaints & Reviews

operations manager is a liar

I have been working for Securitas in Allentown PA for just over 4 months. When I was hired, the HR Manager...

bad employer

Do not work for this company!!! I went through the complaints board here and read about all of the complaint...

not a good comapany at all

This is the absolutely worse company to for(but it was not always that way). To start I am a Veteran of the US Army, so i do know what is expected from workers. That being said when I was hired on with this company my first post was a good post for the better part, I started armed and this company manly uses 38 revolvers(crap gun), some of which would fall apart when you picked them up(not maintained at all), then came time for my re qualification. The gun they had issued me to re qualify with was filthy, with medal fragments in the chambers(all), so I asked if I could take it home to clean before re qualifying, then person issuing the gun said "no it is against company policy for officers to take weapons home for any reason", I then asked "can I go home and get my cleaning kit to clean it here", answer "no I am the only one in the office aloud to clean the weapons", so I asked "can you clean it before I re qualify then?', answer "no I don't feel like cleaning it you will have to re qualify with it how it is!" So I then stated "I will not shoot a weapon this dirty it is unsafe." He then said " wait out in the lobby!" So I went to the lobby and waited about 10 minutes and was called back to the offices. When I got back there I was told by the Account Manager at the time to not worry about re qualifying today and go get a clean weapon from the site tomorrow to re qualify. I did and passed the reQUalification. About 2 mouths latter the account manger was promoted to FSM and another account manager(who use to work at the site) came in. At this time I was a Sgt. (promoted by old A.M.). His first duty there was to get out as many people as he needed to to get his friends in, I was not one of his friends apparently, sense I was removed for "personal reasons", (maybe because his fiance had a small crush on me). But that actually worked to my favor sense I was offered a spot in loss prevention under the first A.M. The pay was less but I worked a lot more hours averaged about 75 Per week, so I made more there and it was closer to my house. I was removed from that site for getting injured on the job. Then they didn't fill out the workers comp paper in time for me to have surgery which would have healed in 3 weeks. So instead I was out for 3 mouths, again this was fine with me works comp = paid leave, and free doctors visits. Plus my daughter was a few mouths at the time so I enjoyed the time I was able to spend with her. After returning to work the spot open was in a community, this was absolute crap work, I was removed from that shortly after for going after a gate runner(my job). But that was fine sense they lost the account 6 mouths latter HA HA HA HA. After that account I went to a master planned community as the graveyard supervisor (do to the FSM putting in good words for me). I was there for 7 mouths and then removed for unknown reasons, Securitas said "client request" client said "securitas request", I believe the client in this one sense he called the day after it happened wondering what was going on, I had a good working relation ship with client who liked the fact that I had almost stopped all copper theft around the community. Lied to I was by securitas be surprise there. After that I was at high rise site where I was accused of stealing things from room. I asked for the supposed proof and all the sudden the camera footage had gotten lost. WOW considering I never even entered a room. Was removed from that site do to need to cut hours. Lost site a few months latter HAHAHAHA. Then on as a flex officer this was the worst up to this time. I was removed from this because, they had called me to work a site but I was a doctors appointment for my then 1.5 year old daughter, (I told them about appointment 3 months a head 1 mouth a head and 1 week ahead in writing that the scheduler had singed off on), I informed them that I was at the doctors office, they then asked "can't you reschedule?" So I again said "I'm at the office now getting ready to go in." So the day I was called into the office a laid off of work, and reason "unable to perform duties". That was fine as well again paid leave (about $30 less a week). After 8 months of being laid off they called me in to work a convention, which here if you are collecting unemployment you have to accept any work. So I did. after which I was put at my most resent sit (still there) and this is buy far the worse site to date. At this site there is obvious favoritism, for day shift officer that is personal friend of the A.M. and she able to show late everyday, have multi colored hair, be out of uniform, use the client computer for personal use use the client phone for personal use. The employees of this place have even complained about the day shift not acknowledging them when they come in, them watching moves on the computer (them = A.M. and officer). The employees have the client about this but nothing happens sense the A.M. is cheating on her husband with the client. If any goes to our upper management we are told that we have to talk to the A.M. first, sense she is the one doing it it won't get fixed, she has also been caught changing officer time sheets to cover for her friend. Again if we say anything we are told to talk to the A.M. The FSM of this branch will do something after you contact HR about it. But then you get removed from site, and as for the alert-line it does no good sense they just tell Branch manager about it. But it anonymous, so they don't know who to get ride of. But nothing gets fixed I have personally reported this to the alert-line more that 50 times in 7 months. The last thing I have to say for now is my A.M. would probably do better if she was there more than 25-30 hours a week and did her paperwork if for nothing else so she would know when things on the bike didn't work no lights for 2 months and she didn't know even though everyone put on the reports everyday.
I am started school for Criminal Justice soon so at least in a couple of years I can get a real job. I am filling out several applications a day, I have applied for some places so many times they sent me e-mails saying to stop putting in application and they will get to me when they make decision.
Conclusion you will do great in this company if you have zero morals, and don't mind sleeping with everyone to get a head.
If you believe in working hard and have good morals, and believe in your wedding vows you not last, and they will plot against you so you quit(it takes a lot to be fired in my branch), clients have caught people smoking weed on site and sleeping securitas solution move them somewhere else.

'foirmer employee black-balled

It became apparent that when I went to apply for a job at a different security firm, some of the same personel that inhabited the securitas security human resources department, now shared information "out-of-school" concerning the aptness of persons former records with that company. This is a direct contervention of state law which prohibits the confidentiality of those files being used to influence a rehire of a person in a different company.. Whether directly used, or fruit-of-the-tree-of-poison-knowledge"! No company may, without consent of the applicant (in florida), attain any prior work performance insight, other than an affirmation that they worked for a prior company."the old act of "black-balling", or caging-a-worker, is unacceptable.. And is clearly and illegally descriminatory.. Affecting the right of an individual to seek gainful employment! Cease-and-desist in this practice at once, and advise your personel not to engage in this odious practice!.. This industry has so many problems; don't make more!..

    THAT IS CORRECT. ONE COULD SAY THAT SUCH AN ACT, IF PROVEN TRUE AND VALID, COULD "CREATE A FLOOD OF CONTREVERSEY" THAT WOULD BE DISADVANTAGEOUS TO ANY SECURITY FIRM TRYING TO GOBBLE UP SMALLER FIRMS..WACKENHUT, THEY ARE NOT..BUT THAT COMPANY HAD IT'S CREEP-OUT FACTORS ALSO..NO MORE PERSONAL FAMILY TYPE BUSINESS' LEFT ANYMORE THAT SKILLED FOLKS FEEL COMFORTABLE WORKING IN..IT'S ALL "THE CLIENT IS ALWAYS RIGHT", AND THE GUARD GETS SKEWERED-AND-ROASTED..NO FUN, NO INCENTIVE FOR A CAREER!

    THESE COMPANIES M-U-S-T BE AWARE THAT MANY UNUSUAL THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN IN THIS ECONOMIC DOWNTURN;; THEY WILL MAKE MANY ENEMIES-WHO WILL BE MORE VOCAL THEN ANY PR CAMPAIGNS CAN HANDLE. THERE WILL BE A SHORTAGE OF RECRUITMENT MANPOWER-BECAUSE THE TRUTH IS OUTTED TO THE PUBLIC, AND THEY ARE MADFE AWARE OF THE CON-ARTIST AND ABUSIVE POLICIES ENTRENCHED IN THESE CLOWN COMPANIES.THE INTERNAL CORRUPTION WILL BE MADE EVIDENT, LIKE BONES UNCOVERED IN A FINANCIALLY DRIED-UP RIVER-EXPOSING WORKERS WHO MAKE ENDS MEET ON THE BACKS OF POOR WORKERS. FOREMOST OF ALL, THE CLIENTS WILL BE LESS NUMEROUS, AND THE WORK THAT IS OFFERED WILL BE AT HIGH RISK AS THE PUBLIC REALIZES HOW BADLY THIS ECONOMIC DOWNTURN HAD SCREWED THEIR LIFESTYLE---FOREVER! ONE THING FOR SURE-WAGES HAVE TO GO UP-BECAUSE THEY CANNOT GO DOWN AND HAVE A LIVING PERSON ON A POST!

they suck

Never seen a company as s****y as this except for Kaiser Permanente who now employs them to rip off the Security Officers employed there.
Our seniority was taken away our vacations taken back to 1 week, and the benefits cannot be used they give Kaiser the freedom to keep every cent put out for employee health care and still to take more from anyone who would dare to try to use it. The Sacramento Securitas Office is run by a bunch of nasty women who hate everyone. Kaiser's unions don't dare back us up either, they didn't like the union who was trying to take us over so they ran away from the issue. You know they will eventually start with their EVS crew and take the benefits from them as well. Stand up and be counted now or it will get worse
