Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Avante security is a professional, private security company that I have been with for coming up on 6 years. Like with many companies, there's good days and bad days. What makes Avante stand out from any security company in Toronto though, is the fact that they take pride in caring for their employees. Our management is super easy to reach out to with any problem, and value our opinions. Anything I have to pay for is reimbursed by them (even my security license!) The worst part of this job can be the static shifts of sitting and waiting for something to happen, which usually doesn't. They offer use of force training, and first aid as well. I have a great team behind me, that work in unison which makes for easier shifts. Doing close protection transports also makes you see the other side of security. Avante has continually been an eye opening experience for me.


Great benefits, team outings, a responsive and supportive management, Get to drive nice cars for work.


12 hour shifts, Always on the go

They only pretend to take your concerns seriously

Management was very two faced and was an old boy's club culture. You were sent to sites with no information and if you did not have all the necessary equipment because you were not given the proper information, somehow this was YOUR fault. Employee safety was not a priority for them either and they would tell you it was a priority but then throw you under the bus right after. They would put you in the on call rotation a day before without consideration that plans had already been made and thay had ample time to make arrangements but wait to the last second and ruin someone's holiday because of their poor planning.


Free breakfast every Friday


Culture of intimidation from management

Full steam ahead! Avante! Avante!

Not your average security position. Very attractive and luxurious on the outside! Very demanding and competitive on the inside! Was ecstatic to join the team as a new hire, was re assured I would be valued. Was told I was recruited at a interstellar period in time for the company. I Felt otherwise during Covid-19. I needed this! This job is active and high performance! Your average security guard is posted. Multiply that by 100 (more or less) at Avante! This job is a challenge and requires a lot of responsibility! Lots of pressure and deadlines, quotas to be met. Even more tense amongst some sort of political health pandemic. Nevertheless, purpose and kept busy! Lots of setbacks from Covid-19. Job considerably more dangerous and restrictions in place. Vague instruction for detail at times, procedure didn't seem consistent at times. Did not get introduced to the company appropriately. Got thrown into the field with basic training, had to learn 100% along the way. No formal introductions. Some training was missed. My evaluations went forgotten. Great title and role to play in the community. From my perspective and dealings in the field, their technology could be better. Should value and respect their frontline more, they are the crown jewel of their package(s) for clientele. Nonetheless scary encounters without warning such as vicious guard dogs(that will hurt you) of clients(who have been described unfairly) from management(who talks a lot of trash) exploiting the clients paranoia and needs for safety and security at times. A lot at stake. Not an easy -

Worst company

I regret my decision to switch to intelligarde from securitas while working with aga khan museum. Supervisors at akm think that nobody can touch them as the security manger frank pettersen is behind their back protecting them. Good lick to frank to support such bad supervisors at the cost of good guards. But how long

Not the best company to work for. The management isnt the greatest and there is little to be said about the work culture and rapport of management with employees.

Progressive company that is doing big things!

I have been working for Avante for just under a year. The company has undergone a lot of changes with mergers/acquisitions/new management but is focused and determined to do everything possible to be accountable to all stakeholders. It is not an easy place to work as the work is tough and time-sensitive, but when your clients demand instant service and security, employees must be extremely knowledgeable and prepared at all times.


Friday Breakfasts, CEO Town Halls, Management Retreats, Opportunities for Growth, etc.


Accountability (if you consider that a con, look elsewhere!)
