Great to start, no I'm stuck

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at U.S. Security Associates

ProsIt's a nice part-time job. I enjoy getting to know the clients and see different industries. Meeting new people is great.

ConsPoor pay, poor benefits, they hire ignorant buffoons and expect professionals, no accountability for supervisors, no praise for a job well done. It can be long hours, I worry about my phone ringing 24/7.

Advice to Senior ManagementHIRE GOOD PEOPLE, give immediate supervisors more control of their sites and the guards that work there.
