Poor management with no support
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Truro, NS – 25 March 2017
I worked in a hospital setting with this company. The hours were long, often working 16 hour shifts. The pay was awful, 11.50 an hour to be attacked, spit on, bit, and often needing to engage in going hands on with violent patients. Also there was constant issues with security and other hospital staff with security being asked to carry out tasks which were not part of the contractual duties. Head office offered no support when dealing with such issues which caused a hostile feeling working environment with other hospital staff. If you needed to speak to someone in head office for anything it was nearly impossible.
And if you quit before your 6 month time period there is a 500 uniform fee which they will take from your paycheck. I left in March of last year and still have not received necessary paper work from this company. You are very much on your own when you work for Paladin. The only good thing that came out of my time there was meeting the other security officers that I worked with. They will become your lifeline while you work there, and you will learn the importance of trusting your co-workers.
security that you work with are great.
