Does anyone know anything about Cramer Security. They are hiring. Does anyone know the hiring process, pay, etc.

Please don't defame this company on topix. If you KNOW that they have done something bad that's fine please tell. But don't make up stuff and put a bunch of horse shit on here please.

If all you know is hearsay please state that you heard instead of witnessed it.

There website does not have all that much info about the job and hiring process, different jobs that you can do as an employee. I need a job so any info is helpful

I work for cramer I've been shorted pay on many occasions and I have senority over a buck of guards where I work and I always seem to be the one getting moved around to less paying jobs. They seem to follow a "click or group" so to speak I really don't know if it's Cramer theirselves or just the "family" of local supervisors.

I worked there for 2 months, until I found out that their pay rates are different at many job sites. At Steel Run #3, they pay 11.25/hr while at the Cliff's main gate, they pay only 8.10/hr. And at Wyoming #2, they pay 10.88/per hr. I got stuck with strip 34 before they closed it at 8.10/hr. It wasn't fair, so I told can shove it!!

I worked there for sometime but quit because I wanted a family life. They don't pay that well and have a lot of trouble hiring and keeping people on. That's how you get stuck working 80 hours a week.

If u bow down and kiss there ass they are good to get along with but if u have to go to a dr appointment or have a family emergency then you are going to have a hard time with them. They expect you to work long hours all the time. Once I worked 2 and half months straight without a day off and had to miss my dr visits to make em happy. They sent me all over the place because guards wouldn't show for work or quit without notice.. Just glad I don't work there anymore.

I was a sergeant there and got fired over one of the mine people lying and saying I was asleep when I wasn't. Worked three years for them and went out of my way for them, every time I was called out, I went in for them. Even when my wife was on her way to the er with my 1st kid, they called me out and instead of me just telling them no, I went, lucky my wife didn't have our kid then. I bent over backwards for them. Even bought things for mine sites when we are out.

nothing to complain about but they seem to like to put women in mens position ... of which i have seen the same woman 2x socializing with a married coal miner and this was approx 2 years apart with the same coal miner. sad but true. Keep these women out of the guard shacks taking up a mans job. Looking for a man on a mining project is very disrespectful. Cramer Security keep ur Slutz in Beckley, I think i can say this for all the Arch coal wives.

I was never paid my training pay. They only pay 8.10, and they are very rude people. They are nice at first, but everyone is so rude!

I was fired there because I kept complaining about a seargent who kept coming late to relieve me. Sometimes 30 minutes late, a couple of times over an hour. This seargent even admitted to me a couple of times the reason for his tardiness was because of a handover. WTF!! That place was unbelievable. But the only reason he was a seargent is because he use to be a cop. I worked there 13 months before he was hired. They love ex-cops there and will promote them over others.
