    I worked at U.S. Security Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at a warehouse that was under construction and it was great lots of overtime and the work was kick back worked with some great people and some bad , when the warehouse opened it was hectic at first but then settled down into a routine

    Cons

    the account manager was terrible she played favorites as far as promotions and the supervisors all they did was sit on there phones the whole shift watching youtube and other websites instead of doing the job overtime pay was screwed up sometimes and you were lucky to get paid when it was messed up

    Advice to Management

    send out undercover people to your amazon sites and check out what goes on the account managers put hours down they are not working or adding more hours to people that are not even there working
