Incompetent, short-sighted management hamstring a productive environment
Client Services Representative (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 13 October 2016
As a member of the in-house security, or "Client Services" (Re-branded to avoid pending provincial legislation regarding security licencing), team at Scotia Square Mall and the wider Halifax Developments property I entered a workplace of long-serving, dedicated and experienced staff members leavened by generally eager newer hires. Whilst the department manager is an incompetent, largely useless liar more concerned with appeasing his superiors than the successful function of the department all three supervisors at the time were helpful and well experienced. Co-workers also provided an enjoyable and easy-going workplace environment.
Unfortunately the vast majority of the department was let go in February in favour of a contract security company, sacrificing decades of experience for a cheaper service provided by generally less-than-competent individuals.
Management, no job security
