    Pros

    Better pay for the area, nice clients, easy training, armed clients in the area

    Cons

    Supervisor was very nosy, no advancement, high turnover rate, constantly training new people

    Advice to Management

    Take more care into each security officer you hire. They are people, not a number. But, they will be a statistic.

    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

    Easy to get hired, most positions are low stress, overtime is available if management looks upon you favorably.

    Cons

    This branch of the business world is driven by undercutting competitors to get new business. Consequently, wages are low and management's allegiance is to their client over their employees. Further, management's bonuses are tied to keeping costs down, so upgraded equipment and raises for employees are things they are disinclined to give. Communication is the worst of any company I have ever been associated with.

    Advice to Management

    Your business model treats employees as replaceable objects. Step above the fray and lead this sector into a place where a career is actually worth considering.
