    I worked at ASG Security full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay, benefits, and vacation time are at the industry standard. There can be some fun and interesting projects, but you'll have to reengineer them yourself when arriving.

    Cons

    The Salesmen are the engineers, so it tends to be more about monthly profit then efficiency. Installations suffer because of poorly engineered projects.

    Advice to Management

    Hold Sales accountable

    I have been working at ASG Security (More than a year)

    Pros

    company vehicle, company gas card, some tools provided

    Cons

    nightmare of customer appointments, horrible logistics, hours can be obscene, and then dead, company has been taken over by Protection 1, raises are now tied to monthly bonuses which are nearly impossible to achieve. Don't bother applying to be a tech unless you already have experience and can command a $20-30/hourly rate. Otherwise you'll be burned out and stressed in no time.

    I worked at ASG Security full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work truck and ok hours. Different places to go everyday not stuck on one job

    Cons

    Horrible sales and management the worst. A lot of back stabbing in the office as well as out in the field.

    Advice to Management

    You need to stop hiring unskilled techs and sales..the customers hate this company I was told this everyday for years cause sales is horrible

    Pros

    There was a great opportunity to experience different positions within the company by way of resume consideration before the consideration of outside applicants.

    Cons

    The cons are the difference in time zones and dealing with different states having to sometimes risk our safety in inclement weather to assist the other states who are not experiencing the same conditions.

    Advice to Management

    take into consideration the needs of others and be more reasonable with rates, being fair and more understanding to each individual even at the most stressful time.

    I worked at ASG Security full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to learn security industry if you've never worked in it. So, at least there is some new technical knowledge to acquire.

    Cons

    Management from the CEO down to the branch Mgr don't really value people. People, as in customers and employees, are just tools to make money with. Also, their security alarms and cameras are not reliable. Not a company to build a lasting career with.

    Advice to Management

    Offer quality training to employees with growth opportunities so that employees will trust management. The network and equipment needs to be improved.
