Pros: Flexible hours as a manager

Guard (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONMarch 21, 2015
a typical day is fairly mild not many incidents. I follow all my duties and procedures as required by the mall. winter gets busy with people slip and falls. I have heard may ways to handle fire procedures. I have also learned how to attend emergency calls. Management is very helpful and kind at my placement. I enjoy my supervisor there are to other guards other an me, and I only really find my self, supervisor and one other guard professional. The hardest part of the job is when a a child or teen has a seizure and trying to handle the situation alone. The management at the facility I guard are very kind enjoyable people, I fell good when I take the time to help people with disabilities.

Productive and good work enviroment
Security Guard (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: on going training, overtime, job placement
Cons: salary, health benefits.
Ongoing training provided, they are able to tailor to your strengths and take the time to place you where you are best suited. The pay for front line security work could be better, however, they do pay in good comparison do the job duties and responsibilities.

Management is fun and light hearted, fair and conscientious to the needs of the team rather than the needs employee. However, work well one on one with the employee for additional training if needed.

Most enjoyable part of the job is again the people I worked with and the amount of interaction I got dealing with the public. I gained a lot of knowledge about how to interact and deal with conflict and high risk situation. Garda Security offered the opportunity to apply my academic learning on a more applicable level.
