Complaint Review: Securitas USA
Securitas USA - Billy Holmes, Joel Hayes, Lisette Valdes BULLYING, DISCRIMINATION, RETALIATION Oakland California
i worked for Securitas for approximately 73 days. My boss was Billy Holmes. The regional executives were Joel Hayes, Lisette Valdes and Sarah Jinco.
To say these folks are devious, lying people is an understatement. And any company or person who decides to work for or do business with these folks is in for a huge awakening!
Billy Holmes the Area VP is a liar who discriminates against woman of color. He is an African American male who is married to a caucasion woman. I never cared about that though. However, when he directed me to withdraw hiring a black woman with a Masters degree in HR so he could hire a white woman with NO experience AT ALL except for the fact that she worked as a personal chef blew me out the water, and when I expressed my concern over this, I WAS FIRED!
How a black man can discriminate against his another black person is disgraceful!!!!! AND I LET HIM KNOW IT!
Billy used to tell me the horrible things that Joel and Lisette would say about me. I did not know or understand why. Then they started saying things that were untrue such about my job performance when I had only been with the company 30 days and had not completed my training.
I have them recorded saying how well I was doing and how I was ready to be trained for the next thing, however, behind my back, they would say the opposite.
Billy would lie and cover things up. He would tell me he was protecting me from the "Regional Devils" and that I did not need to be concerned with what they said, even though he was aware that the lies were upsetting me. I told Billy Holmes I was being bullied by Joel Hayes, Lisette Valdes and Sarah Jinco my report of harassment was NEVER investigated.
I have filed complaints with the EEOC and DFEH and cannot wait to prove my truth with my evidence. Billy Holmes stated Lisette Valdes was rude and ignorant and that he had to report her many times to her own boss. He stated that Joel Hayes was a "mole" planted by the regional office to spy on him.
All this was completely overwhelming for me because I was new. I had no disciplinary issues, no write-ups, no counselings, NOTHING. I was simply let go because I wasn't "a good fit". However, this wasn't shared with me until I called Billy Holmes on his crap for withdrawing an offer of employment to an black woman and hiring a white woman with NO EXPERIENCE in her place.
If you are thinking about working for this company, PROCEED WITH CAUTION! and by all means..... read the reviews first and do not ignore them like I did because the complaints are true! You will have issues with your paycheck! You will have issues with your training and schedules. They DO NOT care about you at all! They care about placing bodies. Thats it.
If you are a company thinking of doing business with these folks....... PROCEED WITH CAUTION!!!!! most of the guards have NEVER worked in Security a day in there life! Turn over is 110%..... As Billy Holmes stated...... think of them as little bags of money...... that is the mentality of the entire company!!!!!
I am prepared to share any evidence I have!!!!! I mean it. I cannot believe that they are allowed to treat people this way and still be in business. As for Billy Holmes, Lisette Valdes, Joel Hayes and Sarah Jinco....... LIARS, LIARS,LIARS...... IS ALL I CAN SAY AND I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE MY DAY IN COURT!!!!!
