Mala.

Evaluación destacada de Indeed

La evaluación más útil según Indeed
Empezando por tu supervisor y llegando hasta los duanos de la compania, como empleado eres solo un numero mas, desechable en cualquier momento y nunca muestran sympathy por tus problems de salud, personales o familiares. Y todos, aun las agencies a las que les sirves, estan dispuestos a deshacerse de ti a la menor opurtunidad que les des!!

Pros

buen salario.

Contras

Management, work enviroment
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

No room for growth

The company itself is good for pay and healthcare benefits as long as you work in the office or the corporate office. There is not room for growth and you will learn a lot though. It’s a good stepping stone to something better or a good place to retire.

Not a good experience

Too much work not enough money! They lost the DCSA contract and are not being transparent enough with their employees. You clear two cases they assign five more. No way to keep up!

Pros

Management is ok

Contras

Too much work. Not enough pay.

Horrible place to work

Management is horrible, they don't help you rather they belittle you and make you feel stupid. Long hours and not allowed to sit at all. They change your hours last minute without any notice.

Pros

Good pay.

Contras

Poor management, long hours
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Great pay, evil company

Retaining personnel is near impossible due to mistreatment. We are over worked, never supported, not valued, and our pay is continuously wrong. Paragon agrees to a pay rate but refuses to honor it even after the union has confronted them multiple times throughout the years.

Pros

All the overtime you want

Contras

A lot of times you don’t get paid for the overtime

Generic security doing access control at federal sites.

Paragon Systems pays well, especially for how easy the work is. However, regionally we are always under-staffed and overtime is expected or demanded. Turnover rate is extremely high, and the training/adjudication process can take up to six months. During which time, many officers have left their prior employment, but are unable to begin work with Paragon. Management is a joke and toxic. Supervisors are either incompetent and non-existent, or would rather devote their time and energy to finding ways to give officers write ups and suspensions than actually lead and foster a productive environment. The benefits program is also subpar, and the PTO is lacking. Depending on your status as either full-time or part-time, you are awarded or can accrue PTO, but because of the short staffing it is nearly impossible to take time off. Workplace fulfillment or progression is almost non-existent. Really the only positives to working for the company are that they pay well because you are a federal contractor, and being a federal contractor it looks good on your resume; and the work is insanely easy. If you are looking for a temporary job to work overtime and build some savings, or looking for a good part-time retirement job, then Paragon Systems is for you. However if you have drive and motivation to accomplish anything in your career, find a different company.

Pros

Good pay, easy work

Contras

Poor benefits, poor PTO program, toxic management

Decent Pay But Bad Everything Else

They’re pay is pretty decent here but they’re on boarding training is an absolute joke. The hours are absolutely terrible which they force you to work because they can’t incentivize anyone else to come work for them. They have ridiculous PTO/Sick day rules and don’t care about they’re employees whatsoever. I’m the past 3 months we’ve had a 40% turnover in employees.

Good starter job with good pay. Everything else? RUN!!!

Plain and simple, never work for this company!!! Consider that your warning! I worked for them for a few years and the amount of work they "ask" you to do gives you zero life balance. They do not care, they will work you to death and then ask for more. You have an issue with pay? TOUGH! You're parents died? Shame, you have hours you committed too! The only benefit to this job is the money and the abundance of overtime. Every one that can, and will, take your time away (working hours) will do so without question. Depending on where you work for them, you may have a solid union rep, but do not rely on them for help unless they benefit from it. Honestly, if it was ran differently with options to move forward with a career based set up, I would have a different opinion but since it does not? Stay away!!!

Can’t leave the premises on break.

One of the Highest Paid Security Companies

The pay is great. A nationwide company which allows you to transfer within the company and advance. Great benefits. Flexible schedule.
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

No advancement or progression, Part Time Initially.

Ensure during interview that it’s clarified that you come on as a part time employee only. Full time might be earned between 1-4 years from start date. Which means no full time benefits during you first year through your fourth year if there is room to move up to a full time spot. As a part time employee you will be working full time hours until location is fully staffed. Then you only work 3 days one week and 2 days the next week only accumulating 40 hours per 2 week pay period.

Terrible Management Structure

From top to bottom, management only cares about the company name on the shirts, not the employee name. Will treat you like a number instead of a person.

Pros

Not much

Contras

Everything

Great pay but no loyalty

The pay is really good for what you do. Some of management is just annoying and they do not reward loyalty at all. Most of the training is ok however some is just really stupid. Most people you work with are pretty decent co workers.

Pourly run company needs to be doing more

Management just plain awful. People who have no business being in charge left to there own divices and others suffer for it. Apparently can't look at a map when assigning duties.

New to te company

I have no idea what to expect.The training was really helpful but it's a job for a part time or a lerson on retirement, I'm not very sure that it's for a college graduate.

Good job, short staffed

Good place to work. Short staffed. When properly staffed the work place and environment is really good and fun. Would recommend to anyone in the area looking

Productive and Professional company who offer good training from very well trained and experienced instructors.

Attitude is everything, it’s the decisions you make. Don’t expect anything handed to, you must earn it by consistent top work performance. Pay attention and do as instructed. Appearance and remaining vigilant are only two of the most important requirements.

Ok, but could be much better

A typical day at work is standing a post for 12hrs, literally STANDING unless you're on xray or a sitting post but those sitting posts are few and far between. Aside from being watched over by an outside agency that could eventually affect your employment ie, being written up .. I had the opportunity to work for a couple of good supervisors so it wasn't all bad. If I absolutely needed a job, I would go back.

Pros

Pay was really decent.

Contras

Little opportunity for upward advancement.

I got screwed over pretty hard with Paragon

I worked a corporate business office. I was starting to gain the security experience I was looking for. Its not traditional security where they say they want security but dont want security. Its a legitimate security job that gives you experience. Unfortunately found out the hard way. Doesnt matter how much security experience you have. Doesnt matter what security certificates you have. Doesnt matter how much experience you have in security. If you do not have a P.O.S.T certificate, or military background. You wont be able to get far. Supervisor kept me on in hopes Ill be willing to drive 500 miles a week for work. Sitting in 4 plus hours of traffic a day. Now Im scrambling to line up work. Maybe it was my fault for putting that much trust into a company. I am able to do the job 100 percent. However they pulled the you must have military experience law enforcement after I got hired.
