Security Guard (Current Employee) – Victoria BC – 22 April 2014
Paladin covers your full security training including all fees except for fingerprinting. The work is relatively easy and they will work with you to provide the best hours for your needs.
Management is good overall, and the fact that you can work in both solo and group/public areas helps keep things different and ever-changing.
On the downside the security industry is based on who bids for a contract for the lowest amount of cost to the company needing us which seems to be put all the way down the line to the guards wages being the lowest of any security company in the province (making it even tougher to live since even at 40 hours per week living in BC is cheque to cheque at best.
Pros outweigh the cons overall which is why i will stay on with them unless i find something full time with much better pay.
easy job tailored to fit your life, uniform and all training provided by company
low pay, no benifits and not enough hours to live on

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.
Excellent stepping stone to a career in law enforcement
Security Officer (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 12 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.

customer service Officer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 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.
Security Guard (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 20 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.
Noticed by the company more and sometimes bonues
We handle a lot more outside our scope of practice sometimes
SECURITY OFFICER (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 14 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.
