Steady, reliable and enjoyable work !
Security Guard (full-time) (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONDecember 7, 2014
Pros: stability.
Cons: can be long
An opportunity to grow, and learn how to be more vigilant. I had to be ready to report or signal any occurrences, on different government work sites. This is the type of work, that permits you to discover or em-better your observing skills. You can be reminded of how to be more attentive to details.

Best Security Company work for
Security Guard (Current Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: it is great company work for and highly recommended.
Cons: there is not too many permanent postions available but it takes time to get one.
Commissionaires is not a like other security companies. Other Security companies even can not get closer to what the Commissionaires does. They operates totally different and treat their employees with respect. It is the best Security Company work for but there are very few permanent positions are available. Because the pay is higher than other security companies, people keep their positions for long time. Most of Commissionaire are ex-veterans or retired police officers. Because it is reputation, Commissionaires can be also great reference for future career. People works in the scheduler department are very polite and respectful. They treat Commissionares with respect.

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 was for 5 hours and I got paid 93 cents.

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 their jobs because the management doesnt respect us.

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