Walden Security [do not work for]

Walden Security is not a good company to work for. Despite them being considered one of TN's top jobs, they are just another company that does not value their employees and uses them up until they snap and quit. I was a recent victim of Walden and an unwarranted firing.

Walden Security has somewhat recently taken on Volkswagen at Enterprise South off of Bonny Oaks in Chattanooga.

Boy is that a train wreck. The job [was] to protect prototype secrets. Walden hires the worst possible supervisors they can find. Guys who are just up the evolutionary chain to monkeys, but also for good reason, maybe, because they only make 50 cents an hour more.

Organization from top to bottom is non-existent.

Let me walk you thru a typical hiring to firing process.

Hiring: Walden will hire and train just about anyone who can pass a criminal test. In the office they clueless office workers will paint you a picture of lollipops and gum drops. Telling you how great it is to work for Walden.. then when you have put in all the training time and 200 dollars in fees, then you will go to the site and then you will learn the truth.

Hope to take some time-off? Yeah right. They don't have enough people to give you time off apparently. They can just fire you if you take the time off that they told you, you could have when you applied and hire another dumbass to take your spot.

They put you through a 2 day training class taught by some self-righteous ex-military men, who pretty much just entertain a class of self-righteous ex-military clowns.

(Thank you for [DOING YOUR JOB] and protecting out country, being in the military doesn't make you better than anyone else.. meat-heads.)

Next they will take you out to VW where you'll meet your first few Post-Primate Supervisors who have obviously been over worked and do not want to be there seeing another group of faces, that by statistics will last anywhere from a day to a few weeks. You will receive a little more training.

Then stand around all day around some Prototype car parts or maybe a robot. After a few weeks the job will actually get better, while the management never seems to. You will be required to be to work every day 15-30 minutes early without pay, then they expect that you will not be relieved from your post for about 15 minutes after you have stopped being paid, then you have to wait for another Ape to bus you out to your car, 4 at a time, then you drive home.

On your average day working at Volkswagen for Walden; you will work about an hour extra for them with no pay, then get paid a whopping 11 dollars an hour, while everyone knows Walden is going to the bank every day.

They undercut all the competition to get the bid on VW, now they have about 200 guards out there and the management and organization is out of control.

When I applied for this job it sounded to good to be true and it was. If you stop any other security guard working for VW and ask them how they like it, they will not hesitate to tell you how bad it is.

I told the office worker when I applied that I had a wedding coming up later in the summer, of which I was in, and people were relying on me. She said "Oh thats fine, just put in for it off 2 weeks in advance."

So knowing how poorly Walden is managed I put in for time off 3 weeks in advance hoping for the best, then again 2 weeks in advance just to have my bases covered. As kind of expected Walden hit another home-run. The day before my trip, of which my tickets were bought and my bags were packed. I was scheduled to work.

I told my supervisor what had happened, and he told me to go ahead and go. He knew that I was a good and reliable worker. He knew I had never missed a day and never called in sick, like to many others.

Long story short.. I was fired. I was called into the office and that same PAIGE CRUMBLISS that told me I could get that wedding off.. replied to me "Oh just because you put in for time off doesn't mean you'll get it.

THANK YOU WALDEN. You are a real Peach.

Now I have a marred employment record after I worked hard for you.

(disclaimer there ARE three decent able-brained supervisors; who loved me when I worked for them. Their say did not come into account when I questioned my firing, because they too are unappreciated employees of Walden Security)

Oh AND, she told he I needed to sign some release paperwork, to which I responded. "Uhm no, I don't think I'll sign that."

Walden Security LMAO they are a joke! You sit and listen to Mike Walden preach it's all about the guards and their hard work. LMAO again because not only do someguards make min wage they got a tin of cookies for Christmas my last go around there. Mike is a joke! All his employees in the office talk about his affair with Lauren and how stuck up Amy Walden is. Like a time that Paige Crumbliss was making fun of Amy Walden when they tookm their daughter to get her license and they had to actually wait in line like normal people, well apparently that was unheard of so Amy left and called some big shot that let her right in the door the next day. Paige told the office staff how she could not believe Amy would do that. Everyone at Walden is just waiting to stab you in the back to get ahead. As for the military stand point you are totally right and if you were not in good with them you were a no one. Now general Manager time, Bob Bayne COWARD he couldn't do his job without someone holding his hand and when tough got going he would stay away from the office because he couldn't face it. I am very surprised no one has ever went in that place and kicked some ass. Guess no one wanted to get shit on them. When I started at Walden I thought WOW what a great place but the longer I was there and how people were treated I was over it fast. WALDEN SECURITY VERY SHADY AND SHITTY PEOPLE!

I work for walden at the CDC in atlanta and it is an absolute shithole... But I have a serious problem with whoever wrote this post cause you say that the military isn't any better than anyone else? I bet anything your pussy ass never served and I know damn well I'm better than your punk ass. Don't be mad that while you were sitting home jerking your little dick on your moms couch, I was in a foreign country getting shot at and killing enemies of the United States. But I guess you can rest your head on your little pillow and cover up with the blanket of freedom that I provide, and I will be the man and protect you. Pussy...

They're fixated on hiring and promoting afro-americans. Perhaps because of the lawsuit they had in Tennessee

I have worked at Walden security for 2 years. The company sucks and do not care about their employees. Recently after having 7 account mangers in two years we received a new one Dave Mccoy, who in turn bought Jessica Johnson,a woman he has a relationship with into the building and made her supervisor on 7 to 3. No one who has worked in the building had no opportunity to apply. It was foul and wrong

All of these comments are absolutely hilarious! Walden does have a lot of issues, but there are still many good people that work for them. It really just depends on who you have to deal with within the company and which post you work at as to whether or not you have a good experience working for them or not. Keep in mind it is still a job, and things could be worse. You could be working at McDonalds...

Paige Crumbliss needs to make a decision. She needs be a stupid bitch or be ugly. It is most irritating that she is hell bent on being both. Speaking.of beauties.....I am sure everyone was shocked to hear Amy Walden had to have Mike call so she and her daughter could go right into the DMV. Perhaps, if they looked like the million bucks they have then, the phone.call wouldn't have been necessary.

McDonalds generates waaaay more money than Walden security and their employees eat free and they have programs within their company for career advancement and training. Does Walden offer that?

How.many female operations managers do they have just in Chattanooga? None. Never have hired.one. Have you ever seen a female manager in McDonald's? Yes. How about hispanic? African American? Yes. You will see racial and gender diversity in management.positions. You will meet managers that were once cashiers. McDonald's is a far better option than Walden. Do your homework.
