Reviews for Oakland security guards
Andrea K.
I had a 2-day video shoot and needed a guard to watch equipment and our location. From the start of our conversation about my project, I felt a little off about Executive Security Details. In my contract, I found the names and details from a previous client's job. Privacy/attention to detail is probably a thing that most people would appreciate. On day 1, the guard they sent was 1.5 hours late. No one called to give an update on the status-- I had to initiate a call to figure out where they were. Car troubles held up the guard, which I understand happens, but the lack of communication from ESD was frustrating and distracted from the other tasks that needed to be done. When the guard finally showed up, I was surprised that a very petite young woman was going to be our guard. Absolutely nothing personal toward the guard, but I find it hard to believe that anyone would be intimated by her. Ibrahim said that he'd be sending a supervisor for day 2 of the shoot, but on day 1 the same female guard showed up, and no call/voicemail/email from Ibrahim to let me know that was happening. I did ask for extra hours, but did not assume or ask that they'd be free of charge. I asked with the assumption that they'd just be added to my invoice (which is what ended up happening, despite Ibrahim's comment about getting them at no extra charge).
