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

    Pros

    It was one of the greatest employers I had been employed with in North Carolina. We ensure that all areas of United Postal Service was a safe environment.

    Cons

    The only downside that I did experience was having quiet moments on the weekends. I enjoyed meeting and greeting with people doing the week. I enjoyed staying busy and helping the need of each and every individual.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to run a smooth and organized operation. Continue to enforce A strick environment so that no one that is unauthorized to again entry into the pub. In other words, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Very easy work, most of the time you are just walking around doing your checks

    Cons

    Horrible communication between management, the employee turnover rate is the worst. Not enough staffing so it is impossible to request days off

    Advice to Management

    Plan in your budget some overtime to allow deserving employees take some time off

  10. Good income for the amount of work required.

    Pros

    It was very easy to complete the tasks expected of you. I never had to take my work home with me. Compensation to work ratio was very good.

    Cons

    Management ranges wildly depending on the site. This can lead to negative reports given the strict attitudes of some captains vs others. For example some captains expected tours to be done at all times while other only required a tour an hour. Captains did not observe the rules the expected officers to abide by. Such as eating, phone use, leaving posts, paper work, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Advertise positions more widely so that you can better select those who work for you. The job and compensation are at a greater tier than the employees that you hire. Keep a better relationship with onsite managers and know their expectations.

  11. Good company.
