18 ways we do it differently:
Here at Girsh Alarm, we know that you are our most important resource, so we pay above
the industry average.
RAISES COME SOONER AND LATER
You want a raise and not some dinky cost-of-living increases. At Girsh Alarm, raises
don’t come automatically but, if you do your job well, they’ll come frequently. Your first chance comes after 90
days of hire. At your review, we’ll assess your performance and you will, too. You will tell us if the job is
working for you and, if not, how we can help. After that, we give formal reviews annually in February - informal
ones sooner if you request it. Each review is an opportunity for you to get a raise.
HEALTH INSURANCE? WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED
We may not be a Fortune 500 Company, but we value our employees like one - some say even more than one. Our health
insurance, prescription drug, and dental plans are great. We pay about 70% of coverage costs. Your contribution
will be around $100-$250/month.
Vacation privileges are pro-rated for your first year, and you can take the time off starting in your second
calendar year with us.

TUITION REIMBURSEMENT PROGRAM
If you want classroom learning, we’ll help you find the curriculum to meet your needs. We’ll reimburse the cost for
pre-approved coursework up to 25% when you receive a grade of B or better. For some industry education, we’ll
pay up to 100% of the cost of the course. You’ll be expected to turn in a Certificate of Completion and in both
cases you will be expected to teach what you’ve learned during a company meeting.
A GREAT TEAM OF SUPPORTIVE COWORKERS
There are no surly malcontents around here. If we ever do make a mistake and hire some miserable cuss, we get rid
of them fast. You will become part of a cohesive group that respects and trusts each other. Our team members are
required to be extremely punctual and maintain excellent attendance records. We have found that good people don't
want to put up with the usual nonsense that most corporate companies tolerate.
When you sign on with us, you are automatically enrolled (for free) in this coaching program. This program
will teach you skills in leadership, marketing, recruiting, training, performance management, and
GREAT WORKING CONDITIONS
We buy only the best services and equipment and we are careful how we use them. We believe in paying for things
that will last. This applies to our equipment, our services, and our people.
WORK IN AN INCREDIBLE ATMOSPHERE
We’re located in a beautiful, safe strip center in the suburbs (near Jenkintown, Glenside, and Abington) with lots
of low-cost parking. Our clients are in the Greater Philadelphia area. In business for 40 years, we have
developed great working relationships with those clients and have expertise that is respected through-out our
industry and by our customers.
FREE INDUSTRY SHOWS & CLASSES
We are happy to pick up the tab for any local industry shows or classes you wish to attend. Keep abreast of the
latest security trends and opportunities. If you see anything that you are interested in, let us know. We would
love to help. Again, you will be expected to teach the lessons you’ve learned at the next company
FREE SNACKS AND DRINKS
Free snacks, water, coffee, tea are available for you to enjoy. Just keep all beverages capped to avoid problems
with spills, and don’t keep food at your desk (we hate pests attracted by foodstuffs!). We encourage you to select
healthy snacks but keep fun stuff around too.
FREE YOGA CLASSES
Learn a new way to exercise, relieve stress and concentrate with our free yoga program. Give it a shot. You will be
glad you did. We reimburse up to 100% of the cost, provided you attend at least twice a week.
BECOME AN EMPLOYEE COMPANIES FIGHT FOR
The time you spend at Girsh Alarm will be an investment in yourself because learning
opportunities abound here. You’ll discover your hidden talents using our Strengths Assessment Analysis and then we
will you put those talents to use to make your own dreams a reality.

in shape. We'll reimburse you for your membership in the gym you choose: our only requirement is that you go
to the gym at least twice a week.
EARN WHILE YOU LEARN
We value personal growth and learning. So much so, that we will pay you to learn something new. With our Earn While
You Learn self-study program, you pick the business topic, get it approved, and then do a little research on it.
Share what you’ve learned with our staff in an informal presentation and you’ll be eligible to give your paycheck a
big-time boost. Plus, since you’ve gotten smarter, you’ll be more valuable to us when review time comes
