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

An elite security company to work for

I had the privilege of working at Avante Security, and I must say it's not your typical security company. At Avante, you're not just another body; you're treated as a valued employee. The company offers excellent medical benefits that outshine the competition.One of the perks of the job is getting to drive nice cars, which certainly adds excitement to the role. The 12-hour shifts involve a lot of physical activity, making it almost like getting paid for cardio exercises - perfect for those who want to stay fit.The employees and higher-ups are highly respectful, but it's equally important to respect them in return. Avante offers a fantastic starting pay compared to other security companies, and overtime shifts are often available, allowing you to earn time and a half.What's more, you get a generous number of paid sick days and vacation days, ensuring a healthy work-life balance. Overall, my experience with Avante Security was enjoyable. It's a well-renowned and recognized company in Toronto, known among fire departments and the Toronto Police Service, which adds to its credibility and reputation. If you're looking for a security job with great benefits and a respectful work environment, Avante Security is the place to be.

Not bad

Avante gave me a good site to work at. They gave me a day shift with good hours and consistent hours. I was given adequate time off every 2 or 3 days of work I would have at least 2 days off. I thank you for keeping me employed.

Join if your not lazy

If your a lazy person who likes to sit in a car and do nothing then this isn't the company for you. Hasn't been a year and I've moved up once and can do it again. People who complain about long hours have never done mobile work before because all companies require 12 hrs from you. Best company hands down from all I've been in for the last 10yrs in the industry.

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.

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

Company going to zero

Small time company trying to go big time but tripping along the way. Maybe join if you have no plans to stick around or advance as I give this place less than 5 years before its sold or goes under. If your career minded my advice would be to look elsewhere. Namaste.

Productive, challenging

There were many different jobs to do with this company so you were always active. Driving a nice car and being in luxury environments was very enjoyable. However the hours were very long and tiresome. Great company but could have more incentives in pay.


Great clients


Long hours, very underpaid

Exciting work with great leadership

Although I have just recently started at Avante, it is easy to see why they are rated so highly within Toronto. My co-workers are excellent and make the work day enjoyable, with very progressive leadership that facilitates a productive environment.
