    They really don't stand out from most of the other companies except for the fact that they do a good amount of armed 'special events'. From what I know and I can only speak for a small number of sites, they don't seem to pay all to well. What I find even worse is officers who patrol college apartment buildings in multiple locations must use their own vehicle to travel between sites and do no receive milage. However, armed special events do receive good pay, usually $15+.

    You'll find very good officers and the average run of the mill 'guard' with the company. Unfortunately they currently do not offer training outside site OTJ.

          Im currently employed by St. Moritz in Boston, And have to say that the way it is run is an embarressment. It is evident that the management will promote unqualified personel due to friendship rather then seniority and work ethic. And you can go months without hearing from them about work.
          I wouldnt recommend this company even as a last resort. Unemployment is a better choice that is if they dont fight you for it like they did to me. So thanks to this company may loose car and default on loans ..
          Thats hows it in up in North East Region, cant speak for the rest of the country.

            run the hell away from this company

            St Moritz in Frederick MD is the embodiment of a warm body security company . The will put anybody on any site as long as it gets covered . I did not have a gun permit nor did I own a gun at the time but I was constantly being sent to armed sites in PG county covering auto parts stores. They will schedule you to work non stop leaving only enough time to get from one site to another for days at a time . When I asked about how safe it was for me to be doing this and driving on the road they said just sleep on site after I had been up for three days fueled up on coffee and mountain dew. I remember one time I was asked by a manager to drop off a key to a guard at a site by my house. I get to the site and there is no body there and relief would be there soon to pick up the key . I had just done 3 movie premiers and had a date later on that night getting off the holiday week end . 3 days latter my relief shows up and I get a write up for missing my shift at another site cause I could not abandon my site due to the threat of termination . I finally get away from the site and I crash for a couple of hours then I get my home phone blown up cause they want me to go back to work on another site that night .

            The work is either feast or famine If you work as a floater . They ran me all over the world I was as far north as the Bloomsbergs Pennsylvania , as far south as Charlottesville, Virginia. The east and west were not too bad as I only had to go to either Berkley Springs WV or to Falling Waters WV on the east side and only being an hour away from the Atlantic coast I could not go any farther west .If you need money that bad remember to shop your self around as long as you got your credentials . St Moritz will have you pay to get your guard card out of your check but you will never get it as that is their one way to keep you working for them . Run do not walk away from this company they don't pay worth a crap , they run you all around the world and don't expect them to reimburse you for anything like they say they will. Chat filters and potential for being banned from the site is what keeps me from truly from expressing my feelings about this company.

              i completely feel the same way buddy. they had me running armed in CT knowing dam well i dont have a ct license to carry. and then expect me to drive from danbury ct after doing a jewelry escort to worcester to stand at a parts store. after them messing up my pay.
              After that how could they actually think someone will drive 90 miles an hour when they wont reemburse for anything and risk going to jail. OMG i hate this company.......

                St. Moritz used to provide security for a large carnival in my area. And let me tell ya, it wasn't top notch people.

                They would run a classified three weeks before the event, basically saying "Come work for a week." They would round up a bunch of bodies and put yellow security polos shirts on them. The guards basically directed traffic in parking lots and wandered around with a handheld radio. If something happened, they called the police on the radio. That's about all they did, but they had some dumpy looking personnel on that job.

                A few of them did bathe and tuck their shirts in. I'm assuming those were the people who worked security full time and cared about their image.

                  I work for a company that is contracted by St. Moritz to do armed security for Auto Zone. I always get paid, and thats the only contact I have with them.

                    You are sub-contracted by another security company? Never heard of this.

                    Anyhow, I wish my post was an Auto Zone. Instead, I am at a ghetto supermarket.

                      I've heard of one company subbing out to another. To an individual, though, that's an interesting concept. I know that most states where you're required to have a security business license, you may not subcontract (business to business relationship) unless you possess said license.

                      So, you'd need your guard license + your guard business license to sub.

                        Here some of these special escort guard jobs for ATM, bank, jewelry firms and pay phone technicians subcontract back and forth with each other all the time. St. Moritz being one of them.

                          Yeah, St. Moritz is contracted by Auto Zone, which then hires my company (which I wont disclose)

                          Kinda funny eh?

                          My Auto Zone is in about the worst part of town in Sacramento.

                            Our company also performs contract work for St. Moritz (on a fairly regular basis). They are not the only company that does this type of thing.

                            We have been contracted by another firm of this type for special detail work.
