    Pros

    Awesome pay good hours and vacation time was amazing. Room for advancement every 6mo.

    Cons

    there was a lot of unobtainable goals that could get you on a P.I.P. and stop you advancement. Also the supervisors are on power trips managers are awesome but very busy. Also you commonly find out after getting hire you are mandated to 10 hours of OT a week its a killer if you work second shift.

    Pros

    Good benefits,some nice people. Some caring staff.

    Cons

    They make up excuses to fire people. No probation no formal rule not fair to everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So I was fired from safeguard and was given loan numbers, client contact information, and training materials. This is all against federal regulations. when I told HR they didn't care nor asked for the items so what should I do with all these people's personal information that Safeguard gave me?

    Former Employee - REO SPECIALIST in Valley View, OH

    I worked at Safeguard Properties full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The best thing about this company is that I was able to be flexible with my start time between 6:30 - 9:00 AM and decide if I want a 1/2 hour or a 1 hour lunch break. Also you could come in on the weekend Saturday or Sunday to make up time missed if you wanted to,

    Cons

    Safeguard Properties has no regard for their employees in any kind of manner. There is often extensive mandatory overtime with little notice. If you decline, chances are you could get fired or will no longer receive opportunities for OT. This is difficult for those with children, families, plans or a life. The at times will nearly kill you - the little extra money is not worth it.

    Regarding the Vendors, this company is unethical and nasty with unseen rules whereas they get a lot of work done at no cost because Vendors are deceived then undercut. When Vendors try to get their money Safeguard will wear them down and at times not even respond to their request..

    Safeguard has a Sweatshop style; no talking and laughing while working, unrealistic productivity, constant threats, and low pay. If you have an opinion or stand up for yourself - trust me you will be railroaded out. HR is in the bed with management. HR will violate trust, rights, and confidence in which you go to them for. If there is a complaint or concern about management they find any way to get you out of the door.

    The management team is unqualified, uneducated, unprofessional, and all friends that have been referred by the same.

    This place has a high turnover. Once they fire you, they go as far as to lie to Unemployment Compensation but are too stupid to know that they have to provide any proof - because there is none.

    I started with a Grade 12 position just to get into the door. Later applied for a Grade 23 in which I was overqualified for. HR claimed they never got my application of interest. A few days later I was terminated over the phone while on vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-vamp the majority of management. - qualified people are a must. Human 'Resources is a complete disaster and a joke. The training is outdated, once you hit the floor working you are penalized for being misinformed. Furthermore, there is no set standards in the Reo department, some people must be inthe 95 percentile with work whereas others can get away in the 80 percentile. SG is purely unfair in every way that i can think of.
