Absolutely the most unprofessional Company I have ever worked for!
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, B.C – 5 December 2013
I have worked for many companies in my life but none that valued human beings as little as this company does. This company is full of lies and crooked management from the ground up. I was a supervisor for this poor excuse for a company and can tell you right now I am ashamed to even say I ever worked for them. If you do decide to work for these guys you can count on working your tail off in the cold for peanuts.
I met guards who have worked for this company for over 3 years without a single raise. They like to hire poor un educated foreigners for their entry guard positions because they ask very little questions about their employee rights and benefits and will work for next to nothing without complaining. My only regret during my time with this company was that I never quit sooner. Think twice before you apply here, they have a terrible reputation around Vancouver and its getting worse everyday. Shame on you securiguard for how you treat your people.
poor wage, poor management, corruption, long hours, forced overtime.
Poor place of work. Management and pay not acceptable.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 13 July 2017
I was lied to several times during the hiring process and ended up with a wage far lower than promised and unfilled expectations by one of the managers in Victoria who is certainly not someone I wanted to work for. She was disliked immensely by her employees and had no accountability, telling her employees that all of the difficulties she faced in the job were brought upon her by them.
When I left with short notice after a week of work, she decided to personally attack me, threaten to berate me to my family (whom she just happens to be acquainted with one member in particular). Despite the fact I tried leaving on semi acceptable terms by maintaining a polite demeanour, after I recognized the poor working conditions to which I had befallen.
I would not recommend security in general unless it is in-house with a company such as a casino or hospital which benefits are provided and pay is acceptable. This company in particular is one I would recommend boycotting for the time being until stronger management is in place. I recommend upon taking this job and asking questions of your colleagues to determine the reliability of those who you work for and whether this is really a place that is suited to you.

Field Support Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 March 2017
Honestly, if you are a supervisor or in mobile in general, be prepared to be running around like a chicken with your head cutoff. Lot of bad apples. Other than that, the work was quite hectic, not a lot of man power, especially when there is even a minor hiccup. Pay is not worth the headache. Also, a lot of politics. Management is pretty good and friendly and reasonable.

-Some sites provide easy work and pay quite well for those just out of HS and in university.
-Quiet sites can be used as a place to do homework.
-Securiguard has many recruiters and managers who constantly lie to their employees (guards); don't take them seriously when they say that "they value you.". You are just an interchangeable part that can easily be removed at the client's whim.
-Good exposure to various workplace environments provides opportunity to develop interpersonal skills in the workplace.
Pays the bills while you're a student, flexible hours (on-call shifts)
dishonest management, lack of respect for its principles (REACH)
Inventory Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 20 January 2017
Securiguard would send you out on one day conferences to learn new techniques and approaches to your job- and then ask you to come back and present them to the rest of the staff. Whether that was sending you out on how to get the most out of your spreadsheets - or spend a day with the management of Coca-Cola. There was always something to be learned.
Full time Security Officer (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 December 2016
Management was constantly changing, contracts being lost left and right, poorly maintained and operated sites. Wages were low, far below a livable wage especially for long travel and amount of work expected at sites.
Manager (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 1 December 2016
This company is your typical contract security company. There is limited strategic direction. Branches operate disjointed from the head office. No pension, and limited growth opportunities. Definitely do not recommend this company on your law enforcement career path.
Senior management is not supportive of progressive change. Afraid of spending money.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 3 February 2016
Securiguard has ZERO value for staff, this company has very high turnover, one of the highest of any Security company. People are constantly quitting or being replaced for frivolous reasons. Office Positions and Management positions would have new staff every week. Expectations are ridiculous, they expect someone to stand for 8 hours in a small area without food, water or a break and if you sit for 5 minutes you will get FIRED. This is a horrible company and evil, no value for anyone.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Kitimat, BC – 17 March 2015
Don't work here unless u have a thick skin. Management rarely supports site staff, they reward problem workers with promotion and added responsibility while moving good workers around to disrupt good teamwork.
