Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 December 2012
A typical day at work would begin with security check and equipment review. Then it would move on to actual foot patrol/door patrol and customer service.
I learned very important work ethic of being responsible for my assigned duties. I also learned that each person's commitment towards his/her duties contributes towards the safety and security of the airport. We had to work as a team because we cannot leave our work post unless we have a replacement. Therefore, we ensured that we were ontime and always ready to put in extra time so that the ongoing duties went on unimpeded.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the recognition that you got if you successfully prevented any security breaches.
Security concierge, patrol, contractor escort etc (Former Employee) – GTA, ON – 8 August 2019
This company needs to be closed down and be thoroughly investigated upon. They do not care about the welfare of their employees. They maltreat and descriminate against race, culture and gender. They express favoritism and always under-pay their already poor and low income employees to maximize profit for themselves. It's high time to investigate most of these security outfits or companies. They make you work a 12hr shift and still would not pay for that in pretence, that they forgot. Stay away from this company at all costs and when you leave or terminate your services or appointment with them, they give you bad recommendations but who cares?
