    I have been working at U.S. Security Associates full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Its good for what it is as entry level job. I think the job experience will vary depending on the work site.

    Cons

    No room to move up after you reach a certain point

  2. It's been a wonderful experience so far. I look forward to what the future holds once Allied officially takes over

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at U.S. Security Associates full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've met so many wonderful people since I started working security. Both for US Security Associates and the client/customer that I work for.

    Cons

    In my opinion, some of the site supervisors need to go through training again.

      I worked at U.S. Security Associates full-time

      Worked with many great people contributing to the company mission.

      Cons

      Client and employee satisfaction and interests were not a priority.

      Remain dedicated and supportive of front line personnel and client satisfaction.

          Current Employee - Security Officer 

          I have been working at U.S. Security Associates full-time for more than 6 years

          Pros

          Pay is good at my location

          Cons

          Company does not contribute to health insurance.

          Current Employee - Security Officer 

          I have been working at U.S. Security Associates full-time

          Pros

          I’m paid more than I would be doing retail though it depends on the site.

          Cons

          They initially kept trying to put me to be security at CVS. Don’t do it to yourself. You’ll be miserable. Stand strong, know what you want, and don’t let management talk you into doing something you don’t want to do.

        • Dont work for them.

          Pros

          The location they put me is fine .

          Cons

          The pay sucks! They said it was 18 an hour and I'm getting paid 15.50. Been waiting 2 weeks for my direct deposit and still havent received it. All I get is paperchecks.

            Hours decent pay , benefits, vacation

            Cons

            Sites sometimes say they have spots when they don’t

            No opinion of CEO

            I worked at U.S. Security Associates part-time for more than 2 years

            Pros

            Client was fantastic. As were my coworkers. No real interference from manager because they never bothered coming to our site

            Cons

            Constant changing of management most with little to no knowledge of the sites they managed. Never had paperwork we needed or got the raises we were promised, they cut hours at no notice and consistently ignored requests from employees to send us better trained help

            Advice to Management

            Having steady management would be a huge plus. 7 managers in 1 year is ridiculous. Follow thru on pay and hour promises.
