Security Officer (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 22 June 2017
This job was decent in they way that Garda themselves ran things. The problem was that they had a big company with little people running the show. They did not choose qualified or moral people to be managers or supervisors. When I worked there we had a tyrant of a manger on site and the turn over rate was substantial. Yet nothing was done about the way the workers were treated. They also took advantage of foreign workers. But everything there was very structured in a procedural sense, so I really did learn a lot about the security business in this position. Would love to see security companies taking more consideration into whom they hire.

Agent de sécurité (Former Employee) – Trois-Rivières, QC – 16 June 2017
Le travail consiste généralement à effectuer des rondes du périmètre à pied ou en véhicule et remplir un rapport quotidien précis et représentatif de vos observations, l'agent de sécurité doit bien savoir faire la différence entre son client et son employeur.
Security Guard Officer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 May 2017
Its a place of hard work and dealing with clients on a daily basis. Its taking care of renovations. Handling out keys to cleaners, keeping a track of contractors,filling them in, writing reports,incident reports,damage to the site had to be reported. There used to be some fun times where we spot anything wrong across 8 buildings at Bay Street,we get a free coffee. I worked full time sometimes in the weekends depending on results. The hardest part of the job was patroling, management was supportive and I enjoyed dealing with clients.
This company needs to work on some things..........
Worker (Current Employee) – BC – 23 May 2017
• I have worked in security for a while now, and I have seen my share of incompetent people that should not do security, and this company has its fair share of them.
• This company fails to communicate on simplest of information that should be handed down to supervisors and/or guards.
• If you want to advance you have to bug them like crazy otherwise you sit in stasis.
• They are big out east but small here in comparison to other companies. They seem to lack the abilities to keep contracts.
• Head office has little to no idea what their sites are and send the wrong people to sites. They want contracts but fail to keep them by pi%@ing off the client with the wrong guard coverage.
• They have this thing where you go to all different site to be cross-trained to help with coverage instead of just working with the contracts to get more people in they have guards go all over the place to keep contracts.
• Its tally crazy how hard it can be to reach anyone in head office for any reason, including uniform stuff, or scheduling.
• If you have thicker skin or the patience of a monk, then I recommend one of the other bigger companies in the west coast.
• They are not a completely bad company they just seem to fail on organization, communication and can be out of touch with the sites they have. They can be fairly supportive and helpful; they just should work on the things listed above.
Être capable de m'adapter à n'importe quel environnement de travail

Je suis quelqu'un qui a beaucoup d'expériences dans le domaine de la sécurité! Très fort mentalement et physiquement! Capable de travailler pendant de longues heures debout. Je respecte la hiérarchie! Très très ponctuel et fiable.
Security guard (Former Employee) – Saskatoon – 20 May 2017
Never seemed to be able to make over 30 hours a week, under paid big time. Didn't even break 11.50$ an hour. After being there for over a year. No one in office could tell me how our benefits worked or what they really covered. Was guilted into staying by the main manager when I was trying to hand in my two week notice. No room to advance either.
Terrible pay, hard to make full time hours, management doesnt really care about you
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 May 2017
I've done a couple runs with these guys once again the work conditions vary from site to site and heaven help you if you get sent to a site where there's a lot of politics or a bad contract.
I had such a site and when I left that site I gave them a full story why. This got back to the contractor who did everything and I do mean everything in his power to make sure I didn't move to another site. And of course they were too lazy to actually check the facts no wonder why so many guards would refuse to work or go back to this location
*heures d'heures de travail par jour. Bien structurée comme organisation. Bel esprit d'équipe. Faire de longues heures de travail debout.
Agent de sécurité (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 16 May 2017
En principe, l'on travaille huit heures de travail par jour, parfois sur certains contrats, l'on pouvait travailler durant 16 heures de travail. Il faut tout de même faire observer que c'était une organisation qui est bien gérée et structurée. Il est important de noter que je suis le fruit de la transaction. En 2009, La compognie de sécurité Sécurité Kollosal et Best régionnal avaient été achétées par Garda Sécurité Worldl. C,est comme ça que je me suis retrouvé chez Garda. Je desteste parfois rester débout pendant de longues heures de travail. J'adore parlé avec le public. Il ya un b el esprit d'équipe chez mes collabarateurs. Il faut resoecter les reglements et les politiques de l'entreprise,
Pre-Board Screening Officer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 May 2017
They are union based to seniority is top. If you are low on the ranking you won't get much for shifts. If you try to ask to change you get denied. You can trade or donate shifts, so that helps except for weekends and it would take 8-10 years to get weekends off.
The CPMs are good. The ones higher up like to micromanage. So if you are okay with someone constantly looking over your shoulder and then writing you up because you did your criss cross wrong then apply. Half the people implementing the rules have never even done the job, so they make NO sense at all. High turn over. The people are great though.
