Security was an educational experience,but I'm looking forward to new experiences
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 January 2014
A typical day in security varied, one day you where dealing with an upset customer,fire alarm or someone who required first aid,everyday was so different from the next.
I learned that I do remain calm under extreme pressure,able to multitask,I'm always able to deal with people in a friendly matter even if the person is upset and I also learned how to defuse problems.
Inreguards to management I was able to inform management about issues that came up at the site i.e needing supplies.issues with other employees and any emergency situations that came up.
I really enjoy working with co-workers interacting with them on a daily bases,and having a great team is a integral part of being in the industry,cooperation is the key to success while on the job.
The hardest part of the job for me was that the industry is not regulated enough and there for it made my job difficult,there where no incentives given and you never really got the acknowledgment you deeserved.
The most enjoyable aspects of the job was you learned something new everyday as well as interacting with people.
sometimes you where included in office events
