Boring, Low payment and high demanding
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.

Be a drone

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

Great Company, but super low wages
Health Care Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC9 August 2017
Different hospital different managers. Some of them are very reasonable, and some of them are just bunch of idiots.

They train you well, but don't pay you what you deserve.

Poorly managed
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB2 August 2017
Seems all right at first and you may get lucky and end up with a good supervisor who is not out to get you fired.

If you get a full time schedule its all right as you know exactly when you'll be working, if you're a part-timer be prepared to get calls for last minute shifts.

They do offer benefits however they only kick in after 6 months of employment.
Pros
Benefits after 6 months
Cons
Poor management, long workdays, favorism

Like any other Security Company
SECURITY OFFICER BRIDLEWOOD MALL (Current Employee) –  scarborough1 August 2017
A good company to work for and have good benefits with reasonable pay . Selection of job locations is important and they try to get suitable locations closer to their homes for employees who commute.

Exploitation, No Support , No Security
Healhcare Security (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC29 July 2017
Paladin suffers from work culture chaos. They pay you 13 CAD/ Hour but takes sap out from your bones, specially in hospital security jobs.

There is no support system where you can talk about your issues or someone guides you, helps you in understanding the system.

If you are married, having a family - this is not a job for you- this is not a career. You can work her, get trained and then work somewhere which is easy on you.

Scheduling sucks....!
Pros
one of the best
Cons
not a career, not enough hours to handle your life.

Company was just developing during the years I was there for. Great people were often looked over and although they say they promote within, they don't really.
Pros

The company as a whole .

Would Not Recommend
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 July 2017
This company is completely selfish and they pay you crumps for 100% expectations on effort, and simply doing your job. They suck, there are worse. But they're not even close to top 5.
Pros
Promotion
Cons
Very selfish company

Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC23 July 2017
I only work at the RBCM. This work is enjoyable and rewarding. I get to work with interesting colleges and meet interesting people every day. I get to see many parts of the museum that the public never see. Every now and then I have to deal with problem people but that is part of the job.

It was alright
Assistant Site Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC21 July 2017
Good entry level, OK if you want to work your way up to being responsible for a seriously sub-par work force in terms of skill. Uniforms are basically garbage and the benefits for a most part are a joke. Pay is terrible.
Pros
Work is easy
Cons
Wide range of employee skill is frustrating

Rollercoaster employer
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 July 2017
Work there for sometime. Good experience but wage very low. Good manager when there was one. Staff at main office give run around to me and colleagues.no answers!! always call 2am or 3am for shifts and dont take no for answer! Lots of open shifts but hard for them to pay ot. Will pay ot at lower wage instead of higher. Never see my manager anymore. Work constriction site and client is nice to us but some site not the case! Job not difficult but must be done to best of ability to keep client happy. No client - no site - no job! Very hard to take time off if sick - no staff to work for you!
Pros
Good client
Cons
Low wage - long hours

A good place to get your foot in the door
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Kamloops, BC20 July 2017
A typical day involves doing a lot of logging onto different programs and doing a lot of paper work. Paladin has many many contracts and the type of work you do depend which contract you end up on. Management requires you to keep statisics about the exact time spent doing various tasks so they try to micromanage everything. The culture varies widely depending on who you are working with. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the paperwork. The Most enjoyable part of is pay day.
Pros
will pay for your best license
Cons
too much micromanaging especially statistics
