    I have been working at U.S. Security Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I like that this company chooses what site you will work at based on where you live. I also like that the associates that were at my specific site were very helpful and friendly, an awesome learning experience for those who are just starting in the security field.

    Cons

    I did not like not knowing who to contact for anything: the site or US Security Associates. There should be one to two people I need to contact: the manager for both parties involved.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is needed!

    I worked at U.S. Security Associates (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid every week, i enjoyed the people i worked with for the few years that i was there

    Cons

    although we got payed, getting our checks was a nightmare 60% of the time. They would sometimes have the checks dropped off in a "general" location for the surrounding accounts but we never knew where. It was an hour manhunt to find which location they left them at.

    I worked at U.S. Security Associates (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay for the quality of work. The location of job site was convenient and accessible. Overtime was always available

    Cons

    After a contract ended, no immediate replacement of assignment.

    Advice to Management

    If a contract ends there needs to be a better effort in getting your employees the next assignment available quickly.

    Pros

    They always have work for you; helping there employees get to the job site and doing what they can for you.

    Cons

    As with all Security Companies. Quality employees are hard to come by; so expect a lot of call outs that leave you covering shifts. If you can handle the hours and like bigger paychecks than its to much of a con.

    Advice to Management

    The receptionist at the main office is the primary link between the company and it's employees/clients. Next time don't fire a good one and hire a bad one.

    Pros

    Operations Manager does a good job trying to finding me extra hours but not steady by any means!!

    Cons

    Hard to get 40 hours a week with no benefits as a bonus!!

    Advice to Management

    Try to get 40 hour work a week for your employees that need full time work and how about some benefits options since none are offered unless your salary vested?
