The company doesn't care about its employees at all!
Security Guard (Current Employee), Augusta, GAApril 11, 2015
When I was hired, I was told if I needed a day off just to let the office know. That should have sent up a red flag! We are expected to work our shift every week and if we need time off we are expected to swap shifts with someone at our site, not incurring any overtime for anyone. Where I work, that's not possible because I work with all my co-workers. So, I can never have time off...

GSOC Officer (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAApril 5, 2015
Pros: Job security
Cons: Management
UPS is hit or miss!!! It's good because there are always security job to be worked (some better than others). The major downside is the management. From the first day I've worked here my paycheck has been wrong and they take up to 2 week to get you what they owe you.

This is a fun and productive company to be a part of
Patrol Supervisor (Current Employee), Brunswick, GAApril 3, 2015
This is a company where you can have fun but still maintain that work mentality. I have learned several new things about being a security guard since being hired. The management upper down to immediate supervisor is excellent. They practice and stand behind the open door policy and tend to each individual employees needs.

Good company
Site Supervisor (Current Employee), Winston-Salem, NCApril 2, 2015
Pros: good uniforms, good sites, will work with you and good pay
Cons: pay out vacation and the main office turnover rate
Its a good company I just want better benefits such as disability and better health insurance and paid vacation instead of they pay you on your hire date x amount of money and you can take a day off when ever. I was us to taking a day and getting paid for it then and not when ever. I've got 6 years experience.

Supervisor, Security Patrol Officer (Current Employee), Palm Desert, CAMarch 26, 2015
Woking for Universal Protection Services has taught me so much about being a security professional. I think the pay could be upped a bit but other than that it is a great place to work especially if you're just starting as a security officer. Management is great and always have an answer for whatever questions I may have.
