Security Supervisor (Current Employee), Toronto, ON – June 26, 2015
Cons: Long hours, pay.
Securitas is a good starting point in the industry. They are of the "Observe and Report" school of thought, which in my opinion tends to limit them in the current security market. They provide lots of – more... training for those who want it. Management tends to be supportive of staff in general. Co-workers tend to vary from site to site. Generally they are good. The hardest part of the job tends to be the shifts. – less
Enjoyable job: interacting with a lot of people daily.

Supervisor (Current Employee), Ottawa – January 24, 2015
Pros: easy no stress, paid to sit around, fair money, great place to make some friends
Cons: shift work, boring at times, few hours available when starting
Salary is fair and can actually can be very good depending on the site you are sent. Management have a role and must deal with "bad apples" on a daily basis. Negative criticism will always be there. If – more... only people would stop complaining and change their attitude, they would realize these jobs are only stepping stones prior to moving on. Ideal jobs for the young who wants references, perfect for retirees and fantastic for whoever wants a job with no pressure. – less
Security Guard (Former Employee), Winnipeg, Manitoba – January 14, 2015
I had a very good position as a security guard with this company for two years. Head management barely did any interaction with us. Something happened when a conflict arose and I, the most senor, was pulled – more... from the site. Not only that, I wasn't told FOR A WHOLE WEEK after WHY I was pulled. They didn't ask for my side of the issue and instead just left me to rot. The union seems to be communication grounds and the only reason that there is talking at all. – less
