Not a positive work environment
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Ottawa, Ontario – August 31, 2015
During the time that I worked with Garda, on a temporary/part-time basis, there was lack of communication between upper management and the staff itself. I will admit that working for a unionized company was cause for concern with me. What if they were to go on strike? I am not sure that they will be able to support me financially during this time. During my stay there, I have spoken with many guards and their view of this company seems a little negative as well. Working night shifts, it is difficult to get news on what is going on within the office during the day. It took many emails and telephone calls to be able to achieve the simplest of tasks, such as pay correction, uniform adjustments and other administrative needs. Luckily, this was not my full time career. I simply worked there for extra money. I cannot speak for those that work there on a permanent basis. This is simply my point of view and does not necessarily reflect how Garda is today.
