    UNARMED SECURITY OFFICER/SITE SUPERVISOR

    Pros

    Better than Walmart but past that there isn't anything worth saying about this job.

    Cons

    Poor training for both the officers and management. Conflicting orders at a lot of sites. Management didn't take care of their officers. Management didn't enforce dress code or tardiness rules for everyone and cherry picked who they did so to remove the people they didn't like. Most sites I worked had sever health hazards that when addressed to both management and the client they blew it off. Even after an OSHA inspection things went right back to the way they were. There is almost zero way/room for advancement. Once you're at a site something major has to happen before you're moved from it which means you're forced with that poor/low pay.

    Pros

    Nice uniforms...that's about it. Company don't care.

    Cons

    Management: A laugh riot! Constant payroll errors. They turn a deaf ear on most inquiries for assistance. Seem disinterested in what's going on out at the job sites. Pay is VERY low for the industry regardless of location. Re-think working for this outfit!! Dead serious. I have been in the Security industry for 20+ years....NEVER seen such an UNorganized company in my life!

    Pros

    Always 40 hours or more available to work. They will hire almost anyone. Large variety of work sites and scope of work available.

    Cons

    Lack of support or any form of communication from your local branch office is pretty common-place with this employer. You should get used to being independent.

    Pros

    To have a job.... They hire anybody!!

    Cons

    Unorganized, unprofessional, incompetent, inexperienced, UPS does NOT practice labor law and is not an EEO. They do not respond to employee issues, You are not placed at a site after completing the unpaid 3 day training!! Lowest pay rate in the security industry and they expect you to work without the basic necessities to perform job duties and don't want you to have a life.... That's not an option. YOU don't matter!!

    Pros

    The best thing about Universal is the support! I never had a problem contacting a member of upper management. The management meetings always got you hyped up and topped your motivation to a peak.

    Cons

    The selection of officers was poor. Anyone seemed to be able to get a job.
