    I have been working at U.S. Security Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, PTO, a lot of promotion opportunities, growing industry

    Cons

    Poor management, inexperienced staff, horrible benefits, even worse Human Resource department, and less than average pay.

    Advice to Management

    Increase training for management, supervisors, and leads. Less promotion from within, when current personnel are clearly under qualified to perform management roles adequately.

    I have been working at U.S. Security Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1.) Serving and protecting “life & property.
    2.) Not much micro-managing going on.
    3.) Branch Managers allow Supervisors & Managers to coach their teams and lead their teams without any issues or interferences.
    4.) Pay can be so “so-so” depending on the position, post location and experience.

    Cons

    1.) Branch Managers & other Branch Workers don’t communicate with you as much as they should. Often times leaving Officers untrained which puts a huge strain on us Site Managers.
    2.) Branch Managers often forget about the Supervisors/Managers ot Officers they are supposed to call back.
    3.) Uniforms are too big and it took me 7 months to receive one shirt that actually fits me!
    4.) Often times, Security Professionals are under-paid which results in poor performance.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with your sites and the Site Managers. This is a great company to work for....but it’s lacking in the communication area.
