I have been working at Universal Protection Service full-time (more than an year)

Pros

You get paid and its a job. Post isn't half bad.

Cons

I could write a book on it. But to name a few............

- Low pay. If you think paying out of your pocket nearly 200 dollars or more to get a class D license warrants getting paid barely over minimum wage with no possibility of a raise then go for it.

-Ive worked for two different companies in this field. Both were the same. See it isn't just one person that I could put a finger on. Sometimes the Supervisor was cool and others were jerks for no reason than to prove who was in control. Power trips galore.

-I'm a model employee. Never been written up or gotten in trouble and have been there over a year. Still treated like a green horn. No raise of any kind.

- What I've seen with the supervisors gives me the chills that anyone would be that desperate enough to take that position with all they have to deal with. They work on 12.00 per hour salary and probably work 6 to 7 days a week at well over 40 hours a week with no compensation. Honestly I don't think my supervisor gets more than a few hours a sleep per day. Some have to drive their own cars all over town.

-They make promises of bonuses for things like 1 years anniversaries but never come through.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For starters don't send out memos of things the company will do but then go back on it when the time comes to pay out. Pay employees more or at least give raises of some kind every few months. Give an incentive for your employees to go above and beyond.

    I have been working at Universal Protection Service

    Pros

    They are a well established company who is growing extremely fast. There are numerous job openings across the country with a wide selection of roles.

    Cons

    Pay is not great. No hope for performance raises or time scale. No places or room to advance. Not a place to find a lifetime career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the people you have and not the companies you are about to acquire.
