"This company is the worst in being professional. I worked for ODS Security for almost 2 years until US Security took over, since then they had been getting rid of us past employees from day one and would hire inexperienced people off the streets. They even hired a guy who would stalk women at the hospital where I worked. The supervisor got away with anything and was a very irresponsible character, considering his mother worked in corporate, I guess, is why he was able to do whatever he wanted. He would change our shifts schedule without letting us know. And then accuse us of coming in too early and not fulfilling our shifts. Worst place ever, they ruined my career as a 10 year experienced security officer and wrongfully terminated me just recently over nothing major, but let the new guards get away with anything."

"This company has to deal with applicants and hires as all security firms do. The client dictates the pay, and it is lower than should be. It would be like trying to hire a brain surgeon and advertising the pay is $20,000.00 per year. You would get the same quality as we get when looking for Guards. There is growth in this field like any other field. The problem is that most of the ones recruited are not willing to work and because they are not suitable even for themselves, they will never move up. I started at the bottom and at a very low pay. I did what any other competent person would do at any job and did the best."

"US Security Associates really doesn't have any way to move up and no raises unless you make it to a supervisor from a regular officer, then you get a little bump in pay but not much for the work that needs to be done."

"Worked at the UGG STORE San Francisco California, store was taking back stolen merchandise without a receipt, then when the going got tough for them they wanted me to step in and tell these kids they could not be demanding and and they had to act respectfully in the store. I refused and got fired by USSA. USSA was also forcing me to work 7 days a week and not paying me time and a half and double time. They ended up paying me a grand because the concrete floors in the store were killing me."

"I've worked with US Security Associates Inc for 4 years (almost). Good company; It is a great fit for retirees, Veterans and students.However, there is not much room to grow. Its ability to improve and move up is poor, thus, high turnover of staff.The paychecks are on time; the corporate office responses in solving problems are fast. The level of technology is good. Internal training system is very good."
