    I worked at Universal Protection Service full-time

    Pros

    Great freedom to actually do your job and considerate if you needed time to handle important personal issues without repercussions.

    Cons

    We had long work hours that was steady. The work days would be everyday without a break in time. Sometimes the shift would be late night and then the next day early morning.

    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.
