Securitas Securitas: poor treatment of employees Internet
Back in 2010 I had the opportunity to work for Securitas at a location in Branch County, Michigan.   I had no security experience when I was hired however for me Securitas was going to be the perfect job for my situation.  I had faced an unexpected layoff and I needed an income.  Although the pay wasn't good (8.90hr), with my unemployment benefits ready to end, any income was better than no income.  I ended up staying with Securitas for about four months and many things I witnessed just have me shaking my head in disbelief.  I was lucky enough to find a better job and just give my two weeks notice an move on, however, many people I worked with weren't so lucky.  The supervisor on site had absolutely no character and if anything went wrong she was quick to point the finger at any other employee.  For example, there was a report by a guard of a possible theft of material and the supervisor stated it was there when I left, I remember seeing it when I left.  She pinned the possible theft on the guard who was on duty who had releived her that evening.  We learned from the plant that there was no theft and that the material was process the day before.  I remember the guard asking the supervisor what material did you see when you left.  I heard that other guards had made complaints about her to management at the Lansing office, however, nothing was done about it.  This supervisor took offense one time when a new guard asked her if there was any room for advancement.  The supervisor was telling me that the new girl asked if there was any room for advancement and the supervisor told me that she told her yes, but for that to happen would mean that I'm gone.   The supervisor told me that the new girl was after her job.  I'm thinking to myself, whats wrong with a little ambition, there's nothing wrong with wanting to advance in a company.  The supervisor was paranoid about it I think a bit because the new girl had a family member who worked at a Securitas main office somewhere.  This new girl made it for about two weeks before she quit because the supervisor was just jumping all over her for the smallest mistakes.  It was all common mistakes that all new guards made, even the supervisor when she was new.  I could just tell from the get go the new girl stood no chance.  There was another time a guard told me that he got written up for calling the police due to a possible break in instead of calling a plant supervisor to come over and check it out first.  He told me he came up to a door that was opened and it had damage to it.  He called the Securitas supervisor and told her he thinks a building was broken into and he didn't feel comfortable walking thru it himself.  He asked her if he should call the police.  The Securitas supervisor told him, yes, go ahead and call the police.  He was upset that he got a write up for not following the chain of command because he called the Securitas supervisor first to find out what to do.  He told me he asked the supervisor why she didn't tell him in the first place to check with the plant supervisor and not call the police.  I guess she acted like the whole situation didn't happen.  It was reasons like this that there was such a high turn around.  People would work a week and quit, we were always short handed which meant working many double shifts.  I was fine with the double shifts and if my relief didn't show up for me that was more money in my pocket.  However, there were several guards, who were retired and just looking for something to do two days a week, took exception to it.  We had retired police officers, corrections officers, and teachers who quit because there relief didn't show up, they couldn't get ahold of the Securitas supervisor, and they ended up on site sixteen to eighteen hours.  All of their complaints to the Securitas main office fell on deaf ears.  I never had anything happen to me personally but with all of the problems my co-workers were facing my feeling is if I had not moved to a position elsewhere, the same would have eventually happened to me.  I know there were several complaints made to the Lansing office.  I just wish they would have made an effort to resolve there complaints.  Securitas lost a lot of good workers.

Securitas The worst job i ever had Riveredge New Jersey
Well I don't know where to begin I'm a supervisor at the Avalon for Securitas. I been in the company almost two years. I have worked at couples of site such as Novartis, Morris Corp, NJM. First of all, I work as a security at the gate. I have no breaks at all I'm the only officer at site I have no heat in the winter and in the summer I have no a/c. The company does not give you anything you have to pay for insurance which takes up half your check. There pay is low you can't support a family with this pay. You can be in the company for years and you never see a raise. I'm a college student so I thought this would be a good job but that's not true. I been force to work overtime when I did not want too and I had school. When you call the office to talk to the branch manager which is Sandro Lazaro all you get is he call you back which he never does. You are never able to get in touch with him. Then you talk to HR which you would think is an educated person who will help you. No think again Instead you get is a rude street girl that talks with such rudeness that's make you think what kind of company you work for. And what kind of uneducated people they hire. Who does not even help you with your problems and does not care. I been with this company and I ask myself why. If you are looking for a job please do your self favor and go look some where else. No person should get abuse like this, you don't need this in your life. Cynthia Lyndhurst, New JerseyU.S.A.

Securitas False job offer, apparent discrimination Minneapolis Minnesota
I was cheerfully hired by the Securitas Agency, no specific job offered. I happen to be a licensed security guard, unarmed with over 2 years experience. However, my height is slightly under 5', I am 48 years old. A woman. Later, I was told that someone else more qualified was hired for a Specific job, also got a postcard telling me the same. All right. Securitas is an agency. The only other thing I was told was to reapply in sixty days. Ivyvine Lakeville, MinnesotaU.S.A.

SECURITAS, USA Fired for not being Loyal/Discrimination Bangor, Maine
In May 0f 2006 I was the Assistant Security Manager at a Large Hospital in Bangor Maine. Dana Cunningham is the Branch Manager fore Securitas, USA. I reported a Security/Safety issue at another Hospital. The Security Manager was out playing golf on Company time and the hospital called looking for him. I was called by HR Manager Jerry Kirby  and told that Dana Cunningham wanted to see me and that he wanted to fire me for reporting this incident. Later Jerry called me back and stated he had talked Dana out of firing me but that Dana still wanted to see me. I met with Dana and at the branch and was told that I would receive a written reprimand. That I would be fired if I ever did this again. Dana stated we cover for each other around here. In August of 2008 I reported Mike Parsons, the Secretly Manager over me at this site had been in my Securitas Email and I wanted something done. Mike had been seen accessing my private account by the training officer Tristan Shank. Dana again had it covered up and told Tristan and I if we couldn't get along with Mike that we would be gone. On 09/09/09 I was told I would no longer be doing payroll for the site. This was because I had found out Mike Parsons had been receiving time and one half for holidays. He is salaried and is not supposed to receive any extra pay. This again was covered up and Mike was told he had to pay the money back. No disciplinary action was taken. On 09/30/09 Mike Parsons sent the Clinical Supervisor in the ED an email telling her not to be discussing security issues with me as I had no right to handle them. On September 30th I emailed Dana Cunningham about my raise and I was told I would have to wait until the dust settles. He was eluding to the fact I had stirred up problems for he and Mike Parsons. On December 8th at the Branch Christmas party I learned that another person had been chosen already to fill a Security Manager position at another hospital even though the opening had not closed. VP Mike Farrello was on speaker phone and asked Dana Cunningham if the guy that was taken the Manager Position was there. Dana turned very red and stated you mean the guy that is going to fill in until we pick someone. Dana to me for the mistake. he later put the two of us through an oral board and the next day told me I did a good job, but he chose the other guy.      I asked Jerry Kirby if this had all been a smoke screen to appease me and he would not answer me. So i assumed it was. On January 14,2009 I was told to take the LT. bars off my uniform as Dana didn't want me wearing them. No one else was asked to do this. On 9,2009 I was told by Mike Parsons to remove my Master's degree heading on my email, again because Dana didn't want it on their. In April 2009 I was asked to take over another site and become the Security Manager. A place where they couldn't keep a Manager because the site contact person didn't like Secuirtas. In July 2009 I was fired for not being Loyal to Dana Cunningham and the company. I had gone on vacation and when I returned I heard from several employees that the client contact had called me a Lazy Fat Ass. So i had called Dana Cunningham to see what he wanted me to do. He had told me to make a complaint to the contacts boss. Which I did. Two weeks prior to this at the new contract signing everyone had agreed I was doing a good job and was very professional. The client called Jerry and Dana down to the site and showed them some emails that I had sent addressing their concerns with pay issues. I had also apologized for Dana complaining to the client about how I had cost him for me to take the position there. This was the real reason Dana was mad and wanted to fire me. I was called to the branch office on July 22nd and fired without any warning. I had been employed at Securitas for 3 years. I had received 2 Supervisor of the month awards along with $150.00 each time. I had received 7 raises in that period of time too. I had been keeping notes on all of these occurrences, and I knew that Mike Parsons had Tristan and I illegally billing the hospital for Premium over time. So I contacted the Securitas hot line and made a complaint. I sent all of my notes with dates and times about all of these facts and others. Nothing was ever done. Except Securitas decided to fight my unemployment. They stated that I had done some illegal things by discussing some of the pay issues with the client and I shouldn't have. I had to hire a lawyer. I won the first 2 hearings. The first one they never called or showed for. The second they sent Dana, Jerry and representation. I won that one and they have now appealed it again. Nothing has been done to Dana Cunningham for his Management practices and  nothing has been done to Mike Parsons for his illegal activities. There is much more I could write about. But it would take all day. Such as Mike Parsons screening out bad evaluations by the of his management skills, then throwing them away. Such as Danna Cunningham continually threatening employees with their jobs if they were to speak to upper Management when it came to check on things. Such as many reports to the hot line by employees being swept under the carpet by Danna, so he didn't look bad. Upper Management doesn't want to do anything either. I sent a complete set of my notes to the Regional President and the Regional HR Manager. Not one thing has been corrected or has anyone received disciplinary action.  After reading other accounts of how this company has treated other people, I guess I should feel special.

securitas Fired because of 5 o'clock shadow. hopkinton, Massachusetts
 I worked for Securitas for a little over a year.  My first site was in a different location and had no problems for the 7months I was there.  Then I transfered over to the Hopkinton site where my troubles began.  The supervisor there..James Wellman repeadedly gave me warning slips for  basically having a 5 o'clock shadow on my face. He claimed that it wasnt proper hygeine and not following the company manual.  The company manual states no beards, goat-tees, handlebars or vangaughs. I had none of them, you could not even pinch the hair growth on my face.  Also, mind you, the site supervisor James who handed me these slips....had a full grown beard. I felt like he was discriminating against me for what ever reasons I have no idea.  He clearly didnt want me there and was looking for a way to get rid of me.  Which when you look back on these rip-off reports it seems that this company is known for harrassement, discrimination and bad reputation.  Well, the warnings eventually ended up having me removed from that site.  I was told that I could call human resources and I had 30 days to accept a different site location offer. What? Any how I called human resources and they offered me 3 different jobs alright.  They were certainly not compadable with what I was previously working.  I was going from 40hr work week, days Mon-Fri. to 12-24 hrs a week, weekends, night shifts and over 50 miles away. So, needless to say, I did not accept any of the offers.  When I tried to collect unemployment they told the office that I had quit my job by not accepting one of their offers by the 30 days. Oh hell no.....I appealed it and had a hearing.  Of course Securitas had one of their people there to try and block the decision but after 2 days, the decision was over turned in my FAVOR.  Dont let companies or their people who work for them get away with this kind of treatment. You can stand up and win these cases.  How this company is still in business right now I will never know.  There are so many bad reports and civil court actions against this company.  The people who wear the titles(like supervisor) are the little people trying to feel big by mistreating others. Its so pitiful.  If your looking for a security company for your company....do your research and check out what the world is screaming to you reguarding this company.  If they treat their own employees like this it does not speak well for them at all. You can find better. And if your an employee....It can and will happen to you as it did me...BEWARE.

Securitas unprofessional, negligent, reckless, incompetent Salt Lake City Utah
You guys at securitas are downright ridiculous!  On more then one occasion throughout posts around salt lake county, I've seen your officers pulling actions that make me surprised DOPL hasn't shut your agency down. Officers sleeping on duty, talking trash to client guests, and the worst, texting while in operation of company owned vehicles! DOPL and Utah state regulations are very clear about this kind of negligent conduct! One of your officers nearly hit my car tonight at the hope avenue walmart less then an hour after this report will post. His partol car, a newer toyota corolla came less then six inches of my back bumper! Had I not slammed my horn down, he would have  have hit me! And when I confronted him about it, he started running his mouth about me watching where I was going! I informed him of the laws regarding this conduct and demanded that he give me his name, his supervisors name, and his dopl issued license number,  to which he refused. Also if I'm not correct, if you are registered as an unarmed officer, carrying weapons on duty is NOT allowed! I will see to it that the state hands down a harsh penalty to this company,  and your client is made aware of the conduct of the person they pay to protect their property.

Securitas Fake Jobs Wasting Applicants Time Atlanta Georgia
 The office in Atlanta is RATCHET GHETTO HOTMESS! Everyone who walks in the door is hired and told to come to training! New employee training is every week! Before training, applicants are asked about availability and instantly offered a position! I was instantly offered a position. The manager even called the work site and told him he was sending me there after training! So after 2 days of training between 8:30am - 4:30pm that included finger printing and drug tests, were told that when the background results come in, we will be called to pick up uniforms. Training ended Wednesday and the following Monday I called to ask if my background came in. I was told yes and so I asked about uniforms. She told be that the manager has to let the work site manager know that my background has been cleared. I asked how long will that take. She said She dont know. I asked if she had an estimate of days and she transferred me to the manager who never returned my call! This took me back to scams temp agencies do and that is posting fake jobs to get new people to sign up so they can get commission! That property manager the Secuitas manager supposedly called during my interview could have been a fake phone call! The depths of wasting people's time pulling job scams for money has hit a NEW LOW!

securitas security securitas wrongful termination, racism,slandering my name on the job, farmingdale, New York
Securitas put me on a 30 day probation and i went on www.unemployment.com to see if i qualified and i did that means i was fired but i had a yellow paper stating i was on a 30 day probation. For wearing and ipod a refusing to follow post orders, so i got qualified for unemployment so securitas writes unemployment and tells them i quit the job so i wont recieve any more unemployment. Also i got a text message from one of my coworkers stating that one of my employees told him i was fired the third day i was on probation.So that means i was fired before i even knew and that also means one of my bosses told one of my coworkers because i came in july 28 ,2010 i came into work my coworker was in my seat i said to him why are you here he said to me i thought you were the new person in your spot. I have also been calling Securitas almost every other day and until i felt stupid for calling because no one would answer me back every time i call them they will ask my name as soon as i stated who i was they said hold on i always got the voice mail.The lady who works in human resource told me to call a guy who does the coworkers scedules . every time i call  the guy he would hey wassup what do you need . he knows what i need a scedule to work . im tired of playing games with this comapny Ive been there since 2007. And i called unemployment because i only recieved one payment from them they said my claim is being reviewed . So wensday the first of sept 2010 i got a letter from securitas stating that i quit my job . What really hurt me was how long i been with this company and all they had to do was tell me your fired instead of saying im on a 30 day probation no one called me until three weeks later and when i returned the call back the lady who answers the phone says i dont know when I asked about the job they said they had for me it wasnt even a job it was a open house. Also i would like to say on the report they had a guy named rob down as my supervisor hes not my supervisor he the scedule guyalso they had the 27 of july i wore ipod and refuse to do what was asked that was also false no of that actually Happend and that date i was not at work i was absent then they said this all happened. these problems happened earlier in July like the 14 or 15 . Thats why im angry with them because of there lies.also the Rascism would be there's always this white guy sleeping on the job and no one even tells on him he leaves with his vehicle to go home and shave nothing done to him just because hes a white male . He sleeps evey chance he can get and he gets reported to Securitas all the time employees every sees him sleep i even told on him and the boss said in front of my face to the guy keep away form them these people aka colored folk all they will do is twist your stories and whats going on. And securitas does nothing but butter this guy up and he can do what ever he wants as long as he rats on every one he can stay.  And i all i did was wear a ipod and im fired.

Securitas Security What a joke Oklahoma City Oklahoma
When I worked at securitas for 11 months and asked for a raise they treated me like I was nothing. The captain one day called me and stated congrats your promoted to supervisor i thought cool im going to get a raise. One week went by then the next no raise. So I called the office demanded a raise. They said ok you got a quarter raise. So i put in my resignation. I gaurded at a rail company. I agree with what people said that their is no heat in the winter and hardly any ac in summer. One day my captain says come to the west gaurd shack to get warm not even five minutes went by he told me to go to my gaurd shack. They do treat you like crap and most of the other gaurds are dumb and stupid. One a gaurd working their longer than me forgot where his gaurd shack was. When I worked I kept the gaurd shack locked I didnt want any disturbance between me and the other idiots even my captain was an idiot. He called me one and asked me to go get him some cigs I told him no and hung up on him. He drove by my gate waving them at my he broke a rule leaving the site. Everytime contractors would come by I would wave them on and sign them in. My captain got mad about that.

Securitas Took away my overtime, created hardships, discriminated against existing guards, paychecks messed up,messed up on vacation pay Internet
On May 1,2010, the security company that I worked for lost their contract with the client who decided to choose a cheaper security company. We were told that everything was going to stay the same. Our rate of pay, our hours, our PTO's, and our vacations.   Securitas has treated the existing guards with disrespect, refused us our vacation pay, which we finally received last month. Some were over paid, some underpaid, and a couple of guards weren't paid at all. Securitas took away our PTO's.    As of yesterday, Securitas reduced one exiting guard from 3 days to 1. Switched the schedules around causing hardships on these guards, and taking away my overtime that I have had for 4 years. They are just doing this to the guards who decided to stay with the current client. They are trying to force us to quit and they have succeeded with a couple of guards so far. Without my overtime, I will lose everything that I have worked hard to achieve. My car, my home that I purchased 2 1/2 yeaars ago... everything.   This company (Securitas) is very shady, sneaky, underhanded and disrespectful.  About 3-4 weeks ago, we found out that our Branch Manager quit, another person at the office is under investigation for embezzelment, and this company is still in business. Why????????? How is this company still able to exist with all these red flags against it?

securitas Gloria and angela, HR personell at branch office. Fired for so-called company policy violation Bellevue, Washington
The worksite I was at did not work out for me. I wanted to work elsewhere. So I went to the Securitas Bellevue Branch Office where I talked to Gloriaand then had to speak to Angela. I had to spend a better part of yesterday at the Branch Office studying for ACT 2. I was also making phone calls as well. UntilI dozed off. I had been sick for several days since the weekend. then I would read again. Today I went there to finish studying for the ACT 2 Exam. Then I talked to Gloria about me willing to drive any long distances to a worksite. then I went back to studying. I was thinking Gloria wanted to talk to me about something. I find out Angela wanted to talk to me. After studying I Iwas told by Gloria to get my stuff and go to talk Angela. Angela told me that she and Gloria found me sleeping and hadwritten down the time I was sleeping. Oh my god they were sneaky on this! She stated that I violated a company policy and termination of employment. I replied I'm terminated? and said I will take this to court, I went to my car, called up in the office told Angela that this is ridiculous and could a lawsuit and said expect a call from an attorney. Then I went back in the office, told the lady in the lobby that I needed to speak to Angela. then here comes Gloria and she rudely told me the conversation is over as I want to explain somethingand rudely asked me to leave. then disrespectfully told me to leave the premises.

Securitas Lied, ignored, favoritism, treated unfairly, contract with employees broken, loss of vacation time and PTO's, Internet
The security company I use to work for, lost their contract with a client. The client decided to go with Securitas. The Branch Manager at the time sat down with the security guards and told us that everything was going to be "grandfathered" in. Nothing was going to change. Now we have a new branch manager, and everything has changed. We get our vacation pay on our anniversary date with Securitas. I work 50 hours a week, and my vacation pay will be for 32 hours. I usually take the last week of December off, because the lobby where I work is closed, and no body likes to work in the lobby because of all the responsibilities. Now, I have to wait 2 years before I can take a vacation. Securitas took over the contract on May 1,2010. Welost our PTO's ( Personal Time Off) reduced from2 or more weeks of vacation to 4 days of vacation. Our rate of pay is the only thing that has remained the same. I can't believe this company is still active. We have been lied to, ignored, and ripped off on our pay. My training was during one of my regular working days and I was not paid for it. They messed up on my fingerprints and I had to pay $10 to have them redone and missed 3 hours of work, which they did reimburse me for, 4 weeks later, but was not reimbursed for the fingerprints. This is a pathetic company and it needs to be shut down!!!!!!!!!!! The person that they have in charge of us here, breaksa majority of the policies and procedures. When we report this, they turn a deaf ear to us.

Securitas Security Services U.S.A. Dishonest, and unprofessional! Troy, Michigan
Looking for steady employment, wages and and a set schedule. You will not want to work for Securitas because these are things they dont offer! I left the Company in 2007 making  $10.50 an hour to go to a better paying job. I was contacted by a man I used to work with at Securitas approximately a year and a half later telling me he had a full time position available working 4 days a week as a supervisor with the pay of $11.00 an hour and 1 day a week as a reular officer at a pay rate of $10.00 dollars and hour and soon to be promoted to an armed officer position within a few weeks to months of employment to make $18.00 dollars an hour. I took this offer and after only two days of employment I was called by the branch office in Troy by the human resource manager stating that I was not to return to that site and that I was to report to the branch office the next day for a re-assingment. They assigned me a new position that was over 45 minutes away from my home, unlike the job I was promised which was 5 minutes down the road and my pay was also cut from $11.00 dollars an hour and suppose to go up to $18.00 an hour to straight $10.00 dollars an hour and was only to work this position for a couple of months while another employee was on maternity leave. I worked this site for the couple of months as assinged while the regular employee was on maternity leave and was contacted again and offered a new position that was a few miles from my home when that employee returned back to work. I was told this new assingment was permanant but that I would only be working 37 hours a week and only paid $9.36 an hour. Two weeks after I started this position my hours were cut down to 35 hours a week. I had become upset for obvious reasons. I talked to the site manager concerning this matter and he told me that he told the branch office not to send family people, (Married with children) because the site was getting ready to cut back and possibly not sign a new contract with this client at this site. Approximately a couple months into this position I was informed by the account manager that we were losing this account and that I would either be laid off or re-assigned somewhere else. I didnt hear anything for about a week and was finally contacted by the branch office stating that they had a new assignment for me but I had to drive to the branch office to be told what and where it was. I asked the receptionist if this is company policy to not tell the employee what the new site is over the phone and she stated no but they prefered to tell me in person. I found this odd as I was told my last two positions over the phone but I did have to go to the branch office to pick up my assignment schedule. Upon arrival I was asked if I would except this new position which did pay a dollar more an hour than the previous site but was informed that it was a swing shift. two shifts of days, two shifts of afternoons and one shift on midnight. I could not accept this posiion as I would be working every weekend and not be able to see my children that I am supposed to have every other weekend and nobody wants to be flip flopped on every shift and also this is a far cry from the pay I was starting out at and what I was supposed to be making. This company does not have good integrity and is not very loyal to its employees. From what I have seen at every site they have sent me to, they are simply looking for bodies to fill positions and that is it!

Securitas San Jose Age Discrimination San Jose, California
To make this as clear as I can this company accepted my resume and application for a position requiring little or no experience. I was laid off from the electronic distribution industry and decided to make a career change. I went to a security training course and obtained a state security guard card authorizing me to work in the security industry. After visiting the company in San Jose I was turned away and told to go online to fill out an application. I went home, logged on and did just that. I am a US Navy veteran, and have a solid work history dating back to 1974. I had not heard from them and continued to see them advertising on CalJobs, HotJobs, Monster. I called and asked to speak to someone in their human resource department. The recpetionist told me they don't accept telephone calls and asked if she could help. This is where it gets interesting. I told her I sent in an online application. She told me that my application was sitting somewhere and it would be filed in case something comes up. Meanwhile others have been employed with far less life experience, or credentials. I emailed them at the email address they use on CalJobs. I never got any response one way or another. I again decided to call. For me, this wasn't going to be just a job, but a new career. I was again denied access to anyone with hiring powers. I must also add that the receptionist that I spoke to literally told me the company treats their guards badl, and barely pay minimum wages. She also told me that the company tends to hire younger kids rather than someone my age. If that's not age discrimination I don't know what is. Do these people think American's over the age of 50 don't need to work? Do they think we don't have anything to offer? Was it the salt and pepper hair? If you find yourself looking to enter a new career as myself and choose to enter the ssecurity industry I strongly suggest you do not look at this company. My next step is to find a way to report them to the California EDD and ask that their job ads be removed from the system.

Securitas Security Management Problems eating the company up. Florence South Carolina
Securitas Security is a great place to work, the owners of this company are at the top of offering what you need to do your job, however their oversight in retaining their customers is their downfall. Their unbelieveable leaders are not trained or have any people skills other than being bullies. In other words there is no Team Work available to help the officers fully understand their duties. Nor is there any backup auditors to check on their customers expectations. The mistreatment of their guards and total disregard for their clients will eventually lead to this specific area being eliminated or replaced. Maybe change will bring back the respect Securitas deserves. SAD. Jackpotonly darlington, South CarolinaU.S.A.
