Terrible
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB30 September 2017
They don't communicate at all and they take sides with people who don't even do their jobs.
They also tell others confidential information about yourself as well and lie all the time.
Also watch your pay check stubs and your schedule I had issues where they didn't pay me the correct amount
They lack the integrity and they also tend to lie.
Cons
Awful management, terrible people to work for

Excellent stepping stone to a career in law enforcement
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  St. Catharines, ON12 September 2017
Working for Paladin is an excellent stepping stone to a career in law enforcement, however, the starting wage and availability for full time hours is very hard to live on. If you need experience and/or are just starting you career in security, if you can find a full time "site/patrol" position with paladin and don't mind being paid a little above minimum wage in exchange for good experience then this is definitely the job for you. seasoned and experienced individuals looking for security may not be interested with this employer.
Pros
excellent experience, decent benefits, union, free uniform, paid license, boot allowance
Cons
low pay, long hours, minimal room for advancement

customer service Officer (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC28 August 2017
The job is not competitive and they basically recruit anybody who applies. as a conclusion, you never gonna move up with the company and can not make a career out of it. it is just a job with no future.

Company notices their employees
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC20 August 2017
Notices their employees more and takes steps to show that. Access to more advancement in other positions through the company. The hardest part of my job is keeping the patience for people that lose their vehicles in the parking lot. Since this happens every day. The most enjoyable part of the job is riding my bicycle outside and in the parking lot. I learned to be consistent through this job. And to always be professional towards patrons, and also during evictions, but at the same time making my point clear to the individual I am evicting.
Pros
Noticed by the company more and sometimes bonues
Cons
We handle a lot more outside our scope of practice sometimes

Good training
SECURITY OFFICER (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC14 August 2017
A typical day is to report 15 minutes before your time as your post requires a bit of a walk. Patient watch requires patience and keen eye for detail plus a caring attitude as most patients are in pain both physically and mentally. The need to record in details on the activity log sheet the activities of the patient can assist /give the nurse in-charge a different set of eyes in looking at the patient.
Access control and asset protection are two activities that needed much attention as you are dealing with environment and members of the community. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you meet a lot of interesting people.
Pros
Nice co-workers
Cons
Rare lunch hours as S/O are busy
