What Our Employees Say
Supervisor / Trainer
I have been in the security field for 13+ years, and Valentis is the only company I have worked for that cared about making sure their employees were trained and equipped to handle everything that was asked of them. The training I have received from Valentis is unparalleled by any other company I have been with. Training is the most important thing in this field and it is awesome to be with a company that makes it a priority.
Supervisor / Trainer
Valentis provides an optimal working condition which affords their employees the unique opportunity to enhance their overall growth and skills in the security field. Most importantly, at Valentis, learning how to cultivate effective working relationships with residents, property owners, and other staff members is of great significance. Building and maintaining strong rapport collectively helps make for a better work environment and allows me to feel secure and confident of the company services.
What I like most about Valentis is that they promote from within, based on performance not seniority. In my first year with the company as an Armed Security Officer, I was selected to become the Drone Operator. This opportunity allowed me to further my skill-set and experience in this industry. I have never worked for a company as good as Valentis.
