    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at American Security Programs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Only had one manager that was firm but fair to all.

    Cons

    Unless you are a favorite of the managers you don't have a snowballs chance in hell of progressing with the company. It was like pulling teeth to receive time off, unless you are dying, and have someone to cover your shift.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, and accountable stop passing the buck like cowards. Treat all officers equal. On many occasions officers that received corrective action reports were not reprimanded, one was promoted, while another officer was forced to quit because of a personal vendetta against him.

    Pros

    It taught me safety hazards because that's my job. I had to bend, walk , stooped and look for fire in the North High School.

    Cons

    There were not enough help at the time.

    Advice to Management

    I would be a team member and help you with my ideas to support the team.

    I have been working at American Security Programs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They pay a fair wage if they could ever get your pay correct; You never see management so there are no hassles.

    Cons

    Pay consistently wrong; Management that is absent; Post orders are wrong, outdated, have incorrect information and appear to have been copied and pasted; Managers call when they need something; Time off requests are ignored; No follow up by managers; Management only cares about filling posts; No development program of any kind and no on line training.

    Advice to Management

    If you would ask for feedback or visit the site once in a while, other than at contract renewal, and spend some time talking to me I could tell you the issues at the site. Anyone who speaks up is labled as a trouble maker and usually short lived for the site. What happened to the old managers that cared and did actual work. There are alot of idea people but few workers. These folks are near death and appear to have no interest in anything other than taking a nap and avoiding the sites they serve.
