    I have been working at International Protective Service Agency (More than a year)

    Pros

    They will hire anybody

    Cons

    You can't hire people for $12 an hour, and work them for 14 hours, then expect them to do their jobs. I worked with guys at the company who seem to be boarder line crazy.

    Advice to Management

    The management is totally gangster, not people you want to work for or with.

    Pros

    A few nice gigs, if you can get them.

    Cons

    Low pay, less than 20 hours a week

    Advice to Management

    Terrible supervisors. How do expect to hire ex-law enforcement when most of the supervisors are tattooed up, and talk like blood gang members? What a joke!

    I worked at International Protective Service Agency full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand; several opportunities to learn new skills.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts non-rotating are the most difficult to handle especially when company operation is 24-7 365 days a year.

    Advice to Management

    Openly give the opportunity to employee's rotating shifts allowing the opportunity to enjoy holidays with family. Since benefits are not part of the package having paid holidays would benefit tremendously!

    Pros

    Okay agency, fun and funny places to work, interesting clients, semi safe work site a lot of hours to work sometime.

    Cons

    It's a independent contract agency, if you can't get someone to cover your shift you have to work it, boss is cool but don't trust him, low members on staff to work with, etc.

    I worked at International Protective Service Agency part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working events such as concerts.

    Cons

    That the pay would no matter what, regardless of my experience, be at $9 something an hour and that there only seems to be temporary or on call work.

    Advice to Management

    Give salary or rate of pay based on experience and offer full time work.

    Pros

    If your lucky enough to land a permanent position you will have a steady income. The company strongly believes in giving second chances.

    Cons

    If your a part time workers it can be unpredictable what kind of hours you'll get and what days you'll work. There can even be slow weeks where you wont get any work.
