about
Work at Crotonville,NY for almost 3 yrs. Was a nice place to work.Employee is always wrong(Management point of view). They are never wrong. Manager screams and yells at employees and tells them they're liars. This place is a joke. Where do they get these people from? The Yellow Pages?

Honesty is not their company policy

about
I worked for Wackenhut for a year and eight months, and in the entire time I was employed with them, I have never in my life witnessed more ineptness and stupidity from the management than any other job I've ever worked!
The integrity level within their middle and higher management leave much to be desired. They also mislead their employees to believe there's a possibility of moving up "the job ladder". This is rather typical however, from a second rate corporation's stand point.
On another occasion I witnessed a conversation between two individuals from the management staff who looked rather cheerful to be going on a 'road trip' simply to fire someone.
Not only did I find that others from Wackenhut were laid off the same day I was, the management in their "ignorance" claimed they could not retrieve the evidence that had been laid against me. Instead of asking me to come in to the office to fire me, they simply took the "coward's ways" and called me on the phone saying "you're not allowed back to work."
It is in my best opinion that anyone looking for work within private security, to look elsewhere and save themselves the trouble of being disappointed. In other words... "Honesty is not company policy" !

Regular layoffs

about
I have to wait a year for benefits, 6 months for tuition benefits....uhhh it sucks because I need the benefits now.
New hires are often brought in from the outside and offered top level positions that appear out of thin air. We might make our bottom line if the executives gave up a couple of their quarterly bashes or stopped hiring their associates from outside the company as VPs.
Layoffs are happening on regular basis every quarter no matter where economy is going.
