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
Learned a lot about people's behavior and managing it professionally
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 17 February 2018
The company is good at employment equity because I am an immigrant and they treated me without any kind of racism. The hardest part of is to deal with suicidal patients by keeping a constant watch at them for 12 long hours.
