    I have been working at Universal Protection Service full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company to work for.

    Cons

    Supervisors need to be paid more than the guards at least $3 more. Need more officers trained up for call outs

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to pay the guard's more. they also need to have floaters for call outs. Supervisors need to be paid a higher wage than security officers are. Not $0.50 or a dollar

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Universal Protection Service (Denver, CO) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Interview process was semi formal with sales manager and branch manager and held within the ir offices. The second interview was held with the branch manager and the regional VP. The second interview was informal as it appeared that the VP was more interested in my soft skills.
