Not For Everyone who likes to work with the public
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 March 2017
This job is not for everyone who likes to help others. It is the total opposite of working in retail. I would recommend it to people who want to work with the public but not in the retail industry. I also thought the pay wasn't good for the type of work you do.

Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON21 March 2017
I have worked for GardaWorld Ottawa for a while now and all I have to say is wow. This branch has changed so drastically in the past year or so. Everything from the company culture and people, to the office layout itself and the recent renovations the office has undergone. The management team presently operating out of the Ottawa office have been supportive, understanding, and committed to providing the best services possible to not only their clients, but also the ever committed workforce that drives the organization in the national capital region.

All in all GardaWorld Ottawa has seemingly become an environment conducive to personal success and development, providing new employees with the opportunity to become something more than what they were when they started.
Pros
Team oriented, and results driven

Poor leadership and management team (Calgary Airport Security)
Security screening (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB16 March 2017
While GardaWorld might be less than ideal company to work for overall, the front-line management team at the Calgary airport is absolutely the worst! The hardest part of the job is dealing with the amount of politics, backstabbing, and the fear based environment. Throwing people under the bus is a norm because management is full of immature and incompetent pansies who always look for a scapegoat instead of addressing their own errors. They surround themselves with "yes" people and get rid of everyone that have any sense of integrity. As a result, resentment builds up among the hard working staff members who see the squawkers and "yes people" get ahead without merit or get off when they clearly screwed up. The pay is not competitive with market rates and they expect staff to stay late, not have washroom breaks, or have any work/life balance. Beware and Stay away!!!
Pros
None to speak of.
Cons
Incompetent management team who constantly throw people under the bus, catty environment filled with drama, instilled culture of "trust no one"

Fear based environment
Employee (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON12 March 2017
If you enjoy walking on eggshells and looking over your shoulder everyday coupled with the real risk of an employee going on a shooting spree while you have nothing to defend yourself with - then this is the company for you. From the CEO on down it is a 'blame everyone else" way of doing business. Lot's of poison in their "group-think" leadership team of Yes Men. Unless you plan to join through the union I would stay away. They treat their admin team terribly.

Not many

Poorly managed
Security Supervisor (Former Employee) –  mobile operative8 March 2017
Poorly operated and managed company. Managers with little to no experience in employee interactions. Company has a tendency to violate the ESA and other labour laws. Seemed very disorganized and show no values in its employees.

Dangereux et mal payer
Agent transport de valeurs (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC6 March 2017
risquer sa vie pour un salaire qui variait de jours en jours selon le poste de 14$ a 16$ de l'heure. Les superviseurs vous prennent de haut et ne sont en général pas parlable. Horaire sur appel qui varie entre 40h et 0h pendant 2 semaines et peu etre appeller a 3h du matin pour travailler dans 2 heures, si vous refuser ses dans votre dossier. Ils ont maintenant 2 agent a place de 3 la nuit pour sauver de l'argent, puise qu'il faut deux agent pour chaque services a l'intérieur, vous sortez d'un bâtiment avec aucune surveillance a l'extérieur dans tout les quartiers sombre de Montréal. Sa prenais dans ce temps la 6-8 ans pour avoir un poste avec horaire.
Pros
Conduite de véhicule blindé, hausse d'adrénalines
Cons
Salaire, conditions de travail, horaires, superviseurs, risque de mort.

People you'll be working with are "different" but when they start to know them and vise-versa they are the kindest and most respectful people.

it was a ''OK'' job
Agent de sécurité (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC22 February 2017
the hardest part sometimes was to have enough working hours in a week. But overall it was ok, they have enough places to work, cause unless we are assinged to a specific contract, we stayed on calls and move from one place to another.
Pros
working conditions were good
Cons
we were treated like a number
