Non Ethical company
Loss Prevention Officer (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON15 December 2017
If you are new Canadian and don't know that there are companies who would respect you and pay you the same as anyone else, then this is the place for you.

They hire you and then do not give you the amount of hours promised. They would rather hire new Canadians for $13 per hour when everyone else makes $15+ and leave longer working staff to have to go to cash alley for work. they know about it, but do nothing.

my advice to the company owner is to fire the manager who act unprofessional and liars.

read all other comments and you will know the what is like to work for them. they appear like friends and treat you like king for few weeks then you are treated like garbage if you don't want to socialise with them after work
Pros
some travel pay
Cons
managers hours pay rate questionable ethicsa

Where do I start?
Loss Prevention Investigator (Current Employee) –  London, ON10 November 2017
I have been in the security industry for a little over 5 years... and this job has to be the worst decision I have ever made. Management appear to be very nice and friendly when you first start, but god forbid you correct them on minor issues i.e. asking them to pay for data since we have to use OUR data to process shoplifters. They will turn into an enemy and bring out issues that have never been an issue before.
Your phone will not be answered, you will be treated like the bottom of the barrel kind of employee despite you as an employee doing your best.
extremely toxic environment, and will not last much longer.
Pros
nothing
Cons
everything, horrible management, unprofessional coworkers, rude clients

A place to start
Loss Prevention Officer (Former Employee) –  London, ON5 September 2017
A good place to start if you are interested in security. Fair pay. Requires alot of weekend work.
As long as you agree with procedures and policies, you will be looked upon favourably - question anything though, and you will be treated quite differently.

Note that "floor walking" is actually quite a dangerous profession. You work solo...no use of handcuffs or protection equipment is permitted. You are on your own arresting common thieves, but drug addicts and career criminals also.
Pros
Scheduling is flexible.
Cons
Dangerous

Great company to work for!
Loss Prevention Officer (Current Employee) –  London, ON6 July 2017
Working for legendary security has been a great experience. The pay is better than most security companies and your never short of work. Having worked there for 8 months and I have never had any issues with management. Your bosses will back you up if any issues arrise as they have tons of on the job experience and know what it's like as a "floor walker". Scheduling days off is never a problem as scheduling always works with their employees.
Pros
Better pay, full time hours, great experience

Great Experience Work Place
Vice President (Windsor Area) (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON4 July 2017
I have worked for this Company for over two years. They have been nothing short than amazing to myself and my team. When something needs to be done, its done. The pay is great, they truly value their employees and have there backs every step of the way. I know this by experience. They do not want you to go over and beyond if thats going to put yourself in danger as they care about your health/life. The owners and Management team are really kind hearted, and will do whatever for there team members. We are a family, we take care of each other at work and off work. For anyone seeking a Loss Preventions Job, I strongly suggest Legendary Security Inc.
Pros
Great Kind hearted family. We have each others backs.
Cons
No Cons!

do not work for them in london
Loss Prevention Investigator (Former Employee) –  London, ON4 November 2016
I worked at Legendary part time for little less than a year, and the bi-weekly pay is about the only good thing i can come up with. Overall management is OK, but the higher you go, the more bs you have. The field manager is cool and looked out for the guard, but he is never around when you need him.

my advice to management would be: treat your employees like you value them and not like theyre the bottom of the barrel. Because those employees who are passionate about security will leave you if you don't. Also join the 20th century and stop using all this backdated paperwork.
Pros
pay is good compared to other companies
Cons
paychecks are seldom correct, They will promise you one rate and pay you at another, Always work weekend policy is ridiculous, If you're in the hospital coughing blood, you'll still get written up
