Maybe you've got a dodgy kit there? I've built around 60 Cadians and I've never had any of the problems you mention.
As for tips. Just take your time with things. If you're having trouble getting stuff to line up, then just hold onto the arm gently until the cement bonds the two pieces together. Or get something like a paperweight and lean the guardsman against it- the weight shouldn't let the arm move off from the torso.
Hope that helped, and happy building.

I've found that it's really hard to not the get arms to line up right if you glue them on one at a time (no matter how the rifle arm is, the supporting arm will always be able to position to make the pose look right.)
That said, I recommend gluing the rifle arm first, once it's cured, glue on the supporting arm. Also, always use the arms as a pair. The only way the arms won't match up to look right is if you use the wrong set together.
I really like using the Gel syle "ultra glue". It really helps, especially when you do the Metal models.
