Overall Reviews at Prosegur
Dispatcher | Fort Worth, TX | Aug 6, 2019
Horrible work place with no chance of growth or progression due to high sense of favoritism.
While the pay can be pretty good and the benefits are a plus, you schedule will change often and you will not be trained properly. There are several guidelines and protocols, but nothing put forth for minor details. Instead of being graded for actual work, you are graded based on preference of the Supervisor/ Manager you are working with that day. There is no chance for growth or progress because everyone works on friendship and favoritism. You will never get the credit you deserve for working hard and long hours. This place is a rather toxic environment, where you will be insulted on a daily for minor things and your personal business WILL remain the topic of the every day work life. Rumors are a daily thing, gossip is something that is done regularly and harassment is something that can not be controlled. If you are feeling harassed, you're pretty much told to brush things off your shoulder and ignore the incident. Do not believe anything you are told at hire because everything will be changed the day you start, including schedules, positions and what you expectations were from the job. You will be insulted for numerous reasons on the daily and have enemies that you probably have not ever spoken. The benefits are great, but they do not cover a majority of the things you may actually need in the long run. I would not recommend this place to anyone unless you are willing to be stressed out, angry and subject yourself to mistreatment on a daily basis.

I started at CSC as a contractor with the promise after 2 month I would be hired full time. It's been 4 months and not only has there not been an offer, but I found out this is their SOP. There has been 15 contractors coming and going in the last 2 years in this department. As soon as they question the 'director', they are shown the door. There is no intention to fill this position full time. Even as I write this working here, there is a job listing to replace 2 employees here with contractors. This is apparently their cost cutting measure, which in the big picture causes the company to lose money in the long run.
The IT director has zero leadership skills and lacks basic human civility. There is no motivation at all to do work, especially for someone who can't be bothered to even throw out a simple 'good morning' every once in a while. Never a please or thank you. Or even a 'good job'. When you report to people like this, employees do not want to work hard. Even going beyond that, you are given tasks to perform and then told you don't have permissions to perform them. I brought up several issues to resolve in IT, but was literally told not to do them because in a few months it wouldn't matter, then written up for not performing said tasks. If you are a contractor, you will be treated like a lesser person with more restrictions. You will also be lied to with made up policies.
Do not work here. I have never seen a company with worse employee moral. No team building or an...more

CSC you will spend your own money to work for this place. The supervisors are cop wanna bees who could never make it so they play Police here. Expect to be sent to jobs for three hours of work
for really bad pay .. like 9 bucks, with a 4 hour commute that is not paid after driving 30 minutes to the site where you leave. Not kidding drive to the leaving place.. 30 min of your unpaid time, then drive in thier van for like 3 hours.. unpaid then work for three hours and reverse three hours back unpaid then 20 min home unpaid and you made about 30 bucks and wasted a day for this lovely company. They advertise come see a foot ball game, concert.. so exciting right, until you find out you are standing at a gate searching drunk smelly people at a gate and never see anything. Thats after being treated like a piece of scum by supervisors who could not make it as cops.. but think they still are and talk to you like you are in boot camp. (9 bucks guys. do you like being treated like a garbage can?. You will find you work for almost free and well you will find out if you work for this sorry company. Sounds exciting but its all smoke mirrors and taking advantage of stupid. Dont be stupid. The only one making money here is the company that exploits anyone they can find that is dumb enough to work for free.Crazy on steroids. Go their and stamp stupid on your forehead. Fast food anyone if you really need the money.
Conswork for almost free dont be stupid
Cargo Agent | Pittsburgh, PA | May 18, 2019
The Amazon of PIT
This is a security company. It's even in their name, Command SECURITY Corp. Like Amazon, they seem to betraying to put others out of business at the airport by trying to supply all the services such as:
2. Wheelchair Assistant
3. Cargo (NO previous experience!)
4. And now, Baggage Handlers
I'm reviewing today, only because I see they've picked u another job at this airport. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried opening up their own restaurant and souvenir shop, next! I worked, and wasn't paid for, as a cargo warehouse person. I was paid for my training, but never paid for the one day at the warehouse all because I didn't sign out on their little notepad. People KNOW I was there over 8 hours, but the hiring mgr lied, telling me no one saw me there. Even though I gave her descriptions of all the events that day!
I worked at the airport, already, as a Ramp Agent. Got a ride to the warehouse by a co worker using our company tugs. Yet, she fumed when I said another coworker at her place took me back to the airport to leave using a tug there. (I forgot to sign the sign out sheet before leaving)
This company had NO EXPERIENCE in the cargo area. During orientation, when she was asked for the company's experience, she said they had none. The representative's jaw dropped. They just happened to underbid everyone at the airport for the position. GREED!
ConsDisorganized, trying to take everything at airport due to GREED.
Security Officer | Valhalla, NY | Aug 12, 2018
This job is not whats up
As a guard at Westchester Medical Center let me say, the job is exciting and it's not boring. However as I stated in my summary this job is not what's up. Management is very unprofessional, there is no communication, nobody tells anyone anything. You will hear alot of (let me get back to you) and they never will. There are no sick days or personal days, so if you become ill you will have to take unpaid time off. Btw( management will give a real hard about taking days off even though you don't get paid for it. There is alot of favoritism, you will never leave on time people are always late. The schedule always has unfilled post so you better ask who your relief is during shift because there is a good chance you will be mandated. Alot of strange things go on at that site and I'm sure H.R. would like to know about but that is too long to write. If you are in need of a job I say take it but continue to look for something else. There is no job security there, the benefits suck, and alot of the duties they require have nothing to do with security. You will see some funny stuff but again don't get comfortable. I have never seen such a high turnover rate at any other job in my life.
ProsDecent pay, you will leave with alot of stoires
ConsPoor management, benefits suck, lot of politics
Site Supervisor | Pittsburgh, PA | Jul 13, 2019
Do not apply
Site is basically dictated day by day by the client whom schemes to get guards fired and outright harasses the supervisors to make them quit.
The management in Virginia will not send temps to cover the massive (16 - 32%) overtime bubble that happens weekly and is slow (min of 1 month) just to get a new hire in and likely that person was lied to by hiring manager by promising specific shifts or days off but not able to deliver said promise and leads to that person quitting quickly.
Employees are forced to work 12 hour shifts and harrassed if they refuse to take overtime calls on their days off. (Literally have to shut off your phone on your off time just to get some peace) supervisors are basically forced to work every day most of the days at 12 hour shifts just so managment doesn't miss their mark on hours rather then send relief.
Pay is barely at par with other companies in the area and the benefits were good when the contract was started but has been dissolved away at in the effort of cutting costs for the company.
Employees have no guaranteed vacations and are likely to have vacations canceled by management at last minute
ProsA job with enough hours to kill you
ConsEverything about this job
Security Officer | Westchester County, NY | Jul 18, 2019
1.Where should I start BIGGEST turn over rate due to hours being cut so you will get stuck doin double because no one wants to come in due to them getting second jobs administration don’t care about their employees 2. Supervisor take your pictures everyday treating you like a child if you refuse you get fired 3. There’s no real training or protocols if you make a mistake it’s because it’s no written down how to deal with certain situations 4. Account management plays favoritism certain guards can come late every day, call out, where tongue piercing, without being written up. 5. You get written up for things they never explain or new rules they don’t tell you about it’s sad and unprofessional 6. Unprofessional supervisors and account manager date the guards it’s not a comfortable environment complaint have been made nothing is done. 7. Nurses always lie on guards and treat us less then human cuz they make for money guards get written up management will never have your back even if they have no evidence you are in the wrong 8. If you want to be treated like a dirty homeless dog work for this company at Westchester medical center
ConsHigh turn over rate horrible benefits
Control Room Operator | Virginia | Aug 28, 2018
Nothing but a temporary job
After working for this Company for 9 months All I can say is don’t expect much from CSC. They tend to promise folks a lot of things at the beginning like health coverage this and that and after your 90 days you begin to see the company’s real image. Health insurance for your family will cost ya and it’s not even decent . The company itself They don’t care about you. They will mention incentives and bonuses you will never see for your performance. They will promise educational tuition assistance which they then will Denie if you ever need it .They will call ask you to come in for work which I’ve done plenty of times and covered any opened posts. But then again when you need time off it’s an issue and expect a write up here and there as they constantly change there policies and many are not informed as management is a completely failure. My officers and team where good hard working people but Because of poor management many of us decided to leave and work for other Security contractors .
Pros8 hour shifts, good pay if you are single, temporary job if you are in school break, other then that nope
ConsUnorganized, misleading, no benefits

Interesting and Honest work
When starting at Viewpoint, I was very excited to get started and learn how to use the camera systems. The job is fairly simple and the training is efficient in preparing you for the floor. Viewpoint also offered many bonus hours and a solid quarterly bonus program that was attainable and not out of reach for any of the employees to get on a consistent bases.
The only issue with the company is that it Is a small ,privately owned. company. The management team could do a better job at connecting with the agents more as far as concerns the agents have and keeping a closer eye on what goes on the floor. This is mostly the result of not having a human resources department.
Overall, I would say viewpoint is a good place to work. It is honest work and there is room to move up. It is not the type of job you would make a career, but it is definitely good experience to have for future endeavors.
