Best experience! I use Bay Area for both security and investigation work with my company and was/and still am so pleased with the results. The owner of the company was so kind and easy to work with, he was hands on with any job, and easy to reach at any time of the day. The guards that work for him were always on time and very professional. Once looking into other work that Bay Area offered I noticed they also did pre-employment screening which I was happy to hear. I could get my Criminal and Credit background checks on my employees and get the results back within 24 hours apposed to waiting 2-3 weeks. Best experience once again!
