    I worked at CPS Security Solutions part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked the fact that I got to spend time outside, rather than just being locked indoors somewhere.

    Cons

    I didn't really like being alone. I'm better working around people, but that was pretty much the only downfall.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management would be to pay close attention to who is actually doing their job and who isn't. The guy who used to be my field supervisor, when I was there, is now HR manager at the Rialto branch, and I know he does his job very well. Not only does he complete his tasks, but I know for a fact that he completes others' tasks as well, and is not recognized for them at all. I know that the company would hate to have their eyes opened, when they see that they are promoting the wrong people. He has done a great job for as long as I have known him, and his superiors need to see that.


  8. I love this job since it pays me well, gives me plenty of hours, and my job site is only 1.5 miles (6 minutes) away.

    Pros

    Good pay, hours, job location, relaxing, respectful management, good benefits

    Cons

    Originally, I was supposed to get Tuesdays and Wednesday off as stated on my initial schedule, but they then added Wednesday to my schedule. Not that big of a deal since I need the hours and enjoy my job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Total disconnect between corporate and employees. Corporate had no care or concern whatsoever for anything but lining their pockets. Employees are.completely disposable.
