U.S. Security Associates is proud to hire our Heroes!
We protect our investment in Associate recruitment, training and benefits by
recognizing high-performing Associates as STARS, while also rewarding them for
their hard work and dedication.
By celebrating our Associates’ successes, we honor the importance of each
individual’s contributions and broadcast the message to our entire force that their
best efforts are noted and valued.
We are proud to present the following awards to our Associates each year:
U.S. Security Associates develops Associate knowledge and skill sets through an award- winning training process and a thriving learning culture. We've received several awards, notably being named a Top 125 training company by Training magazine for 11 consecutive years.
We're also honored in the Association for Talent Development (ATD) BEST Awards competition.
We were first recognized in the ATD BEST competition in 2006, then in 2012, and most recently in 2015.
Additionally, the training component of our SecuritySTARS℠ program allows our Associates to advance their career path like none other in the industry.
Due to our continued support for our nation’s military, including participation in many military supported programs, U.S. Security Associates (USA) has earned
the designation of Military Friendly® Employer by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine, for five years running. It’s no wonder USA is widely considered a top employer of choice for military personnel across the nation.
Our benefits packages are structured with the flexibility to align with your needs as an Associate.
Benefits include the following:
"U.S. Security Associates has given me a positive experience in helping transition from military to civilian life. Regional Loss Prevention Manager, Nick Layfield, has helped with my flexible schedule as well as accommodated my reserve status. My experience as a supervisor in the military has helped me become a better Loss Prevention associate, in addition to better understanding how to deal with different security officers in a tactful way."
Cris Unciano, Loss Prevention Coordinator, West Coast Region
U.S. Army, Special Operations, Iraq
"USA gives me a compatible schedule that aligns well with my other employment and working relationships with fellow employees. U.S. Security Associates’s officers are professional in appearance and security interaction. I personally think hiring military personnel is a great idea, because military people can identify with other military people and build great teamwork.
The founder and former CEO, Chuck, with his prior military background gets everyone thinking and working in the same direction."
Jerry Wellman, Security Associate, Canonsburg, PA
U.S. Army, 1967-1969, Vietnam
"I found that joining the USA Team let me use my military background and training. I, as an older veteran, have never forgotten the Pride, Responsibility, and Trust that is so important in the military, and in today’s society. Recruiting the military veteran for experience is not only a great idea from the founder and former USA CEO, Chuck, but it also shows his proud military background and willingness to help a fellow veteran.
I salute him!"
John Puskarich, Security Associate, Canonsburg, PA
U.S. Army, 1965-1969, Vietnam
Happy veterans work here...but don't take our word for it.
"I am a U.S. Army Veteran Retired and a former JROTC instructor in the Houston area. I’m also a recent hire with U.S. Security Associates. After being hired, it’s my observation that USA will be a good fit for Service Members coming off of active duty. Many of the USA policies and procedures are very similar to what is done in the U.S. Military. USA does a good job training its people, following the chain of command and in the dress and appearance of its officers."
