I worked at Guardian Alarm full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Decent pay (11+/hr)
You will understand how the alarm industry works inside and out.
It will also help you decide if you like sitting for 8+ hours a day talking through a headset.

Cons

Unorganized staff
Poor atmosphere
No room for advancement
Unhappy clientele
Cannot even read a book on absolute downtime
Constantly reminded that you are being watched by 10+ security cameras.

Advice to Management

Realize how normal it is for supervisors to tell people there is such a high turnover rate yet nothing is done to change that fact.

    I have been working at Guardian Alarm full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are very good in comparison to other companies in the industry. Vacation time is generous for salaried office staff. Health benefits are good and not too costly.

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism within the company. Divisions tend to not play nice together. General manager focuses on keeping employees disgruntled rather than focus on building a team.

    Advice to Management

    Occasionally ask for anonymous feedback from middle management regarding how upper management is carrying out duties. Often times, the problem starts at the head of the organization and others are discouraged from continuing to give 100%.
