Great job, not long term.
Pre-Board Screening Officer (Current Employee), Edmonton International Airport.July 3, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: shift work
It has thus far been an amazing journey in this company. I sadly have decided to branch off into something I would more enjoy; sedimentary position.

The company has recently undergone new management revamping, and the direction that organization has taken isn't what I had initially liked about the job.

terrible!! mangement! but being on the road is great
Armed Security Officer (Current Employee), Fairfield, NJAugust 2, 2014
Pros: meet some good people
Cons: management is terrible!! don't like to pay what your worth
the Job is great!! Management is terrible!! the pay is not what you think it is. it's not a federal base job its privately owned. For a dangerous job its not worth risking your life for the rate of pay you receive.

Worst place in the world to work for
Check Imager (Former Employee), memphis tnJuly 16, 2014
Cons: too many to name
The company an whole is the worst. Management has no skills in training or helping others. The employees best interest in hand are not taken in consideration. Hr is a joke. They will not assist you nor will they come and see about the environment that you are working in if you have complaints. It is a poor excuse of a company.

Full time is actually part time for 2nd shift
Teller (Current Employee), Livonia, MIJune 27, 2014
Pros: co-workers provide helpful and friendly atmosphere
Cons: low pay, lack of hours and unequipped managers
Managers and supervisors are really out of touch with employees. They are also unaware of how some job duties are completed, and how somethings are done wrong. Supplies essential to the job are often not stocked.
Most companies consider full time 40 hours..not Garda..hope for 35 per week if you're on second shift!
Communication is poor, no staff meetings...most – more... info happens through the grapevine, never directly from management.
Expect mandatory scheduling on some holidays. – less

no concideration for its employees
Director of maintenance (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVApril 29, 2014
very poorly managed company. no concern for its employees and their safety. they will put you in a commercial truck with air brakes and not even teach you how they work. their last concern is their equipment, they put their employees and the public in jeopardy everyday their truck are on the road.

A very hostile environment
Jack of all trades (Former Employee), Myrtle beach scApril 13, 2014
Pros: no pros
Cons: lots of cons
A very hostile environment to work. Managers does not have any leadership or organization. You worked so hard & you give them loyalty, and not even a thank you would come out of their mouth. It will suck the life out of you . And if you have any problems and tell Hr & managers . They will talk bad about you & make it harder for you to enjoy your job. – more... And all problems are swept under the rag. Garda World does not care about you , they treat you hatefully , they do not pay, no incentives . Sexual harrassment , bullying they ignore , you will never get any help from anybody ESP. HR. You are basically on your own . Where I work which is Myrtle Beach the place is so unhealthy, mold all over . Flores have not been swept for years . Bathrooms are so bad. And by the way, when you are Part time you do not get any benefits, I mean nothing . But they expect you to work full time. No lunch, no breaks. People you work with are so hateful. So do not waste your time with this company . – less

If you have a life..stay away
Driver/Messenger (Former Employee), MemphisApril 11, 2014
Pros: still trying to find some
Cons: management, work conditions
Branch manager only cares about her self. Whats going on in your life is not important. If you put in for off days, which half the time gets denied, best believe when you come back to work she will make you pay dearly for taking off. There is no support from HR or upper management. Trucks are broke down and patched up. No heat in the winter and no air – more... in the summer. If you dont have a life this is the company for you. But if you value your life I strongly suggest you by pass this place. – less

Increasingly difficult place to work
CASH VAULT TELLER (Former Employee), Spokane Valley, WASeptember 8, 2013
Over the course of the last 6-9 months, Garda had become an increasingly difficult place to work. Our workload had more than doubled, yet our corporate office would not allow us to hire the part time person we had requested because they felt there was no need for it. Meanwhile, the four people that were working in my specific department, were working – more... 9-10 hour days using equipment that was so old and antiquated, our vendors would no longer service the machines because they could no longer get the parts to fix them. Whenever a complaint was made to management, no action was taken. – less
