great coworkers, strict management, low pay.
security guard (Current Employee), london, onJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: great coworkers
Cons: low pay, poor managment
Fun place to work with great coworkers but the pay is low and expectations are high. Management depends on the person, some are good and some are bad. Also they like to "accidently" pay you less then you actually worked and not notice. Then they make you send in paystubs proving that you worked the hours you say you didn't get paid for, my last pay – more... was for 5 hours and I got paid 93 cents. – less

12 hour days looking at a computer
Security Guard (Current Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 4, 2013
Typical day at work is sitting in front of a computer for 12 hours with only 2 20 min breaks. trying to balance people walking up to your desk, answering phones, monitoring cameras and alarms, and responding to alarms.

management only ever see the bad and negative things and never or rarely say good job. Co workers have low moral and dont care about – more... their jobs because the management doesnt respect us.

Employers expect you to pick up extra shift but wont approve vacation time. – less

Low pay equals high employee turn over
Bylaw Enforcement (Former Employee), BCAugust 6, 2012
Pros: gain experience required by better companies
Cons: low pay, no support, little training, poor management
After working for commissionaires for three years I have no respect for the company or it's management team. Any one with skills and half a brain knows they're worth more than 12 or at best 15 dollars an hour. Bylaw enforcement requires good verbal skills and an understanding of the legislation being enforced. How can you put someone who has no experience – more... into this position and expect them to succeed. What usually happens is once a person realizes what bylaw and animal control requires of them they quit. Commissionaires hires someone new and the city or client never gets a trained staff capable of carrying the work load. I worked for them for the bylaw experience required by municipalities for city positions. I would never suggest anyone think Commissionaires is a good choice for long term employment. – less
