    Former Employee - Security Guard in Moreno Valley, CA

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at CPS Security Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some flexibility of schedule at times

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being human beings instead of cold robotic things.

    I have been working at CPS Security Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work can be easy, lots of downtime at certain sites, coworkers are great. Free uniforms and paid lunch.

    Cons

    Supervisors can be strict about following company policy, you have to do what the client says, no matter how trivial or unrelated to security it is or you're out of a job.
    No training to get your guard card, branch management could be more efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check on the branches and listen to guards more often.

    Pros

    Minimum wages,hiring anyone with no background check,no interview,to many unfair business practices ,fire for any complaints/slavery system,steal hours and OTs and many more.

    Cons

    NON at all,non,non,non,non,non at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Field Supervisors always keep changing guard schedule and create OTs for close friends and got some extra cash.Supervisors hide patrol cars keys for close friends/some guards see cars and no keys is very unfair for use own car to go 50+ miles away post.If someone complaint about ,he will be fired for fake allegations like sleeping on post.Management don't care about company's finances and and run office(Gardena,CA) like family business.Turnover super high.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, easy going job, not a whole lot of supervision.

    Cons

    You have to use your own vehicle/gas to get to different sites. Some sites can be dangerous depending on what you're watching. Even though you're acting as a visible deterrent against criminal activity its very possible for criminals to engage you. I've known an employee to be attacked

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the starting salary.
