    I have been working at Guardian Protection full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Above average pay. Good benefits. Opportunities for progression. Decent location. Good people working here, it's like coming to work with a good group of friends.

    Cons

    Information overload. They have a great trainig department but there is so much information to learn it can not possibly ALL be taught during an 10 week training course. If you already know the industry you have a leg up but the hardest thing to master are the computer programs and ever changing processes and procedures. ALOT of on the job training. Processes and procedures are changing everyday. Poor communication between departments. No sense of any foward planning or inclusion in company goals. Operating most of the company on outdated computer programs and sales strategies. Poor attrition rate in many departments. Compensation across the board should be more based on the industry and market but Guardian can afford to be a little cheap with salary as they are on of the few companies consistently hiring in this area. Don't expect to gross more than $40,000 unless you are in upper management or a department head. All lower level positions will pay less than this. Typical starting salary is $12-$16 if you are lucky.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Guardian Protection full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy to get hired, easy work. Lots of cheerleading and pep rallying. There were tons of great cooks at the Tempe location and pot lucks were always amazing. Company will hire applicants with a valid medical marijuana card if the job is not in a "safety sensitive" position. Decent benefit package and PTO.

    Cons

    You will be told to accept a position that may be below your experience level and promised a fast track to advancement. "Company policy", they'll say. What they don't tell you is that you have to work there for at least one year before they will consider you for any advancement. If you are already an experienced professional, you will probably end up with a Team Lead that is younger and less experienced than you are. For me, working here felt like I was always being dangled an unattainable piece of cheese.
