A very nice and friendly place to work.
Security Guard (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBNovember 27, 2012
Pros: i was given a site i was familar with, the people that i was working for were very friendly, i learned different ways on how to better my experiences of a security guard.
I am happy that I got to work here because it was a very friendly company that I worked with when I first got to Winnipeg, Manitoba. I am glad that I got the chance to work here and wish that I was still working here. Some of the things that I liked well I was working here was I learned different ways on how to do my patrols, I was given a site that – more... I was familar with when I was working Security in Edmonton, AB, learned how to do better report writing and the caretakers were very friendly and cleaned up things right away when I called them. – less

Security Officer (Site Supervisor) (Current Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 4, 2012
Pros: lots of free time
Cons: long hours
A typical work day is that you are either dealing with a fire alarm, leak problem, ambulance emergency, or a trespass. I learnt how to be proactive and to react fast in all sort of emergencies situations. The management is nice, they listen to your concerns and keep that in their record. I found that easy to deal with co-workers. The secret is to find – more... out what type of person they are and to be friend with them accordingly. The hardest part of the job is that you are called in the middle of the night sometimes to cover a shift for a late or absent guard. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you have lots of free time. You can use this time to actually improve your skills and to be an excellent employee. – less

Bad management
Loss Prevention Officer (Former Employee), North York, ONSeptember 4, 2012
Cons: almost everything
They will leave you out to dry. One thing goes wrong and you are pushed under the table. They don't pay for travel. Management care about themselves and not the workers under them.

The management was helpful and assiting during this difficult time in the company. Equipment (Trucks) are not new and need improvement but I was listened to and respected. All safety issues were delt with quickly and effectively.

Cleaning Operative (Current Employee), Manchester, ENGDecember 16, 2014
Pros: great co workers and positive environment
Cons: long hours due to the set out of them
I enjoy the environment that I work in, this is as I love my job and get along with all members of staff within the building. A typical day would include activities such as checking stock, cleaning court rooms and removing the recycling. I communicate well with my co-workers and management with any issues that have been raised in the day that I was – more... unable to deal with for any reason. – less

Security officer (Current Employee), Port Elizabeth, ECDecember 8, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: working long hours
Fun but sometimes too challenging. Having to deal with different people and personalities. When people go through a rough patch they take it out on you.

We have good management although there's always a room for improvement, excellent colleagues always willing to put in that extra effort to make sure we all share the workload. The hardest part of the – more... job is being hated. – less
