  • Anyone know this company?

    Has anyone heard anything good or bad about a company called Security Forces, Inc? Interviewed with them today and they seem ok but would appreciate any feedback available.

    Was offered a Rover and ERT position. (ERT is for hurricanes, disasters, etc etc)

    I know of them. They had the Florida Power Contract. An "ERT" position is laughable, they are a warm body security company. What are they responding to?

    Example: SFI had Wachovia (When it was *Trust, I forget the name, too many years ago). Unarmed officer, no duty rig, no cell, no radio, no nothing. So, the only thing he was there for was to stand at the front door and greet bank customers. He was incapable of even calling the police if there was a robbery or incident.

      Nathan,

      Thanks for the input! As far as WBC I regret that I have found the ultimate one, but it helped in my moving down where.

      As for the ERT I agree its a silly name, but its more like TWCs Global Response Team, they do hurricanes disasters, strikes and the such.

        I had a part time position with them when I was going to school for my criminology degree. That was back in the early 90's. They are indeed a WBC, but on average pay mid to close to fair depending on the contract. The Florida Power site is still thiers and they also have a side security unit for VIPs which FP handles only. BTW: FP is now Progress Energy.
        My views, opinions and statements are my own. They are not of my company, affiliates or coworkers.

        -Being bagger at Publix has more respect these days

        -It's just a job kid deal with it

        -The industry needs to do one of two things; stop fiddling with the thin line and go forward or go back to that way it was. A flashlight in one hand and your set of keys in the other

          I can't really comment on the silliness or non-silliness of the name. NAPSOA PSG has an ERT in the works. Except, you know, less pants belt only and more CIS-style Rent An Army.

            Security Forces, Inc. is based in Charlotte, NC and offices in VA down to FL. Their website is www.security-forces.com

            I know the Vice President of Finance pretty well. He's a good guy, but I don't know how they would be to work for.
