I am the wife of a Security Guard who currently works for VPS. He really had such high hopes, they promised him a review, that he was excited about, because he believed he was doing a really good job, and at the time, his Supervisor was very encouraging. However, right off the bat, I didn't like the company. they made him pay, I think it was 300$ for his belt, and they issued him only two shirts and two pairs of pants and he was supposed to work 40 hrs a week. plus, his paychecks were so small, he was borrowing money off of me all the time to pay for his gas and cellphone, because the company didn't pay for that. He had to make a sixth trip to the office that seemed to be 30 miles away to the office just to drop off paperwork. Funny how you never saw a supervisor showing up at his work to pick up the paperwork. I guess that would be too much work for a supervisor? I guess why do it, if you can find a shmuck to do it. Well, he was told he'd get a raise after 90 days. that seemed to be a lie. they said he'd get a review, that was a lie. he was told he'd get benefits, that was a lie. They made him fear to ask for a day off, even when he was sick, and that was them being greedy and selfish if you ask me. He dropped 15 lbs working there. Trust me, he doesn't need to go on a diet! after 90 days, his supervisor (the nice one) dropped off the face of the planet, and they put this new one in his place, that had no idea what the job entailed. all he did was threaten to write my husband up for everything, and even had the nerve to lie to him today, as a matter of fact, telling him there was a ""mandatory meeting"" just so that he could try and humiliate him in front of the head honcho, who in my opinion is an overglorified f*ckhead. My husband had a haircut last week, yet, they want him to SHAVE his head. I am sorry, but I certainly do not want my husband to look like a walking Pen*s like the wonderful green supervisor he works for. they are upset, because he doesn't CHEW his nails. in other words, no blood on the fingertips! they are UPSET because my husbands uniforms, which BTW ARE washed by ME, yet he has to (pay a uniform ""FEE"" every paycheck to leash their glorified TRASH) were hanging off of him, because he has lost so much weight working for this ""joke"" of a company. Everyday, it is something. yes, they do have the classes, however they won't give him the days off to take them. We spent 600$ on a gun, because it had to be a certain type, that he may not even be able to take. Allegedly, this new ""supervisor"" claimed that he had to take the classes within the first 90 days of employment to recieve a review and a raise. What a joke. you think that they could have told him that up front? Bless my husbands heart. he works there out of duty, and because he believes in this company, and they constantly dump on him, it seems like, everyday. 9$ an hour, what a terrible way to treat someone, and then take all of his money, to pay for equipment, and to pay for paperwork, and uniforms. Where is the health insurance? where is the dental? where is the uniform pay? where is the HUMANITY????there just isn't with this company, and it makes me shudder with what they get away with. They promise the world in one hand, and then they sh*t in the other.
