    I worked at U.S. Security Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay ok. Most of the people you work with are cool enough to work with.

    Cons

    They are somewhat disorganized. It cost nearly a weeks pay to get all the licenses and stuff to work at some of their sites and everything needs to be renewed every 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Cover the costs of the licensing that is required to even step foot in some of the work sites.
