Being an employee at Universal Protections as a security officer means you get no paid time off. No vacation, or sick. If any time off is needed employees have to take the hit in wages. Employees are required to work holidays like christmas, new years, easter, thanksgiving, and any other holiday that most companies have off. Working for the Santa Ana branch (not corporate) as a security professional is different than if you work in the actual branch as a secretary who answers phones, or any position in the office. The office gets way better benefits like health benefits, paid vacation, paid sick, and paid holidays off. Now this is not corporate it is only a branch.
A branch who's employees, whether in office or out of office, are all from the same branch employer. Something is very wrong here!. Heres a screwy things from this branch, when christmas arrives the bonus you receive is never from UPS. They make the client who contracted their services pay it to the security officers and this year I was given 50 dollars as a bonus for christmas from the client and due to UPS and sticky fingers i ended up $37.50 after taxes it was $34.22. Then $12 is not accounted for and this happened to 7 employees I work with including myself. When it was confirmed by the client l that our bonus was supposed to be $50 it crushes your beliefs in the company you work for.
We work constantly with no time off with pay, we work every holiday, health benefits that is to expensive for a low paid employee to afford, so at the end of the year when a client shows their appreciation by giving a bonus for christmas l why does UPS have to take that away by being the middle man and tax it after they take their cut. In addition while working one day i listened to a supervisor sit and talk about how disposable security officers are and if they didn't want to mark a box stating they did something when they didn't they will be fired and replaced with no hesitation. I have many stories like this that i have seen, heard, or experienced myself. Question remains does my voice matter? Does anyone even care?
