Easy Entry Level Security Job
Parking Enforcement Officer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 July 2015
Working with Precise ParkLink was mediocre. On one hand, the job itself is easy if you’re doing parking enforcement. There is a lot of leeway for taking breaks and working independently gives you the advantage to be able to take a break almost whenever you feel the need to. If your ticket numbers are good, management won’t get upset with an unscheduled 60 minute break. If you are working in the parks in Vancouver, there are some nice places that you patrol that you are able to get out and take a walk while on break. On the other hand, management is somewhat disorganized, supervisors are trained to be more like bosses which are control freaks instead of team leaders that would help you out. Be careful about damaging company property because they threaten to make you pay for the repairs! Also the phrase “do you wanna get fired” gets thrown around too often by higher-ups. Medical and dental benefits start after 3 months as opposed to 6 months at other companies. Training is very short and you don’t learn anything about staying safe or deescalating a situation, only the basics of the work itself. Overall a good place to get your foot in the door for security/enforcement jobs and/or if you’re out of a job and need to pay rent, but career wise, you should look elsewhere.
Easy work, free parking, medical and dental benefits after probation
Unpredictable management, low salary
