Fascistic, autocratic, low regard of employees needs.

Security Supervisor (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I have been working at HSS full-time for less than a year

ProsThere are NO pros to working for this entity.

ConsShifts dictated by Corporate Office in Denver. Regional managers detached from reality. State Operations Managers aloof an non-caring. HIGH turnover at all client sites.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake some of your own advice in those meaningless online training videos and treat your staff a human beings no expendable cannon foder.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Security Officer

Security Officer (Current Employee)
Denver, CO (US)

I have been working at HSS full-time for less than a year

ProsGood teamwork within the shift, the ability to rotate different positions throught out the shift.

Consstarting pay is 12.00 bucks an hour, on the job training was terrible, you do not get a lunch break...you eat when you can. at my facility the only place you can eat is in the office but depending on the supervisor you better not get caught eating in the office. not allowed to have drinking water at your work station. there is a high turnover rate.

Advice to Senior Managementlook out for your employees, give more support and make it a place people want to work at.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Hss Branch Manager

Branch Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at HSS

ProsHSS always aims to provide the customer with the best quality hire equipment available which results in my job being easier compared to that of branch managers at rival companies.

ConsHSS can be slow to spot development potential in employees due to the hierarchial management system. Some managers feel threatened if they highlight people with potential

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in mystery shoppers as I think it would improve the service given. This would also i believe lead to best branch managers being flagged up.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
