Security Officer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 13 March 2017
-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.
Mobile Security/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 October 2014
A typical day within mobile simply involves completing the patrols on your run sheet, while responding to any Alarms/Other calls/Emergency Situations that are dispatched to you by the supervisor.
As the Supervisor, not only do you have your own set of patrols to complete, but as mentioned above, it is your responsibility when contacted by Seguriguards dispatching center (C3) to decide which unit to send to various alarms/other. In addition, you are responsible to make sure as many patrols are completed as realistically possible, while making sure your team is properly doing their job. You report to Management any major problems, while dealing with as many as you can without having to pass it onto management. Such examples would be issues with units, giving them the first verbal warning before escalating the situation. A day as a supervisor can either be calm and quite depending on what calls come in, or can become fairly busy.
Moblie and on site guard (Current Employee) – Surrey, van – 14 July 2014
This was by far the worse company i worked for said they have a car for me to drive or pay me 40 cents a liter on gas for my travel.

Security Guard (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 13 March 2014
Securiguard as a company is not as great as I thought it would be. When they are in need of workers they are in a hurry to call you. But when you are in need of work they don't put in the same amount of effort as they would when they are in need. Working at the Hyatt though was nothing but great for me. Friendly co-workers and very hard working. We all worked together as a team and I enjoyed it a lot.
Good placement (at least for me), Free lunches
Low pay for the position I was working, Don't care for employees as much as they should
Security officer (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 27 February 2014
enjoyed my work with co-workers and as well with the management. respecting other peoples privacy. any hard situations i had, i always would ask managers opinion and always gave them my point of view as well.
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.
I worked for Screwaguard @ the location they are posting for. I made an arrest of a repeat offender shoplifter which the police backed me up on. This person ended up pleading guilty to theft as well as assault (on myself). Screwaguard threatened to fire me over it. They said the only reason I was not being fired was cuz they didn't have a replacement for me so I quit. Once Screwaguard heard the person plead guilty to the charges they had the nerve to call me & ask me to go to their office in the mall to sign a banning notice so they could issue it to this person cuz the banning had to be signed by the guard who handled the situation. They threatened to fire me so I quit then they ask me to help get this person banned from the mall. I never did go in to sign anything for them. I would never recommend this company to any potential employees or clients.
