Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON2 November 2018
I worked in Hamilton location for BC for 2 years. Very supportive management. Easy to talk to and very understanding of personal circumstances. As a supervisor roll the work life balance can at times be difficult. Pay is good, but no other benefits or highlights. No advancement opportunities other then experience to move on. .Not once did i ever wake up and have that horrible feeling that i didnt want to go to work that day.
Pros
Good pay for supervisors, 8 hour regular scheduled shifts. Family atmosphere, good management
Cons
hard covering shifts, no benefits, on call 24/7, 12-16hr shift if someone calls in.

Avoid At All Costs!
Security Guard (Full Time) (Former Employee) –  Moorefield24 August 2018
The Moorefield location is a rendering plant. Where livestock carcasses are processed into industrial fats and oils (as tallow for soap) and various other products. (as fertilizer) You will be overwhelmed with the stench of rotting animals coming in via trailers from all over south western Ontario. On the weekends you’ll have to patrol the plant, bring a mask. Combine that with Moorefield being 45 minutes to an hour away from large cities AND only being barely above minimum wage....seek employment elsewhere. P.S No boot reimbursement program for this site either.
Pros
None

Security Industry leader
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON18 July 2017
Barber Collins is both innovative and progressive within an often stagnant industry.

Many aspects of the Job are your traditional security role, However the company prides itself on its Supervisors and that translates to a better work environment for everyone.

Pay is an issue, however this is an issue across the industry, that said Barber Collins pay scheme is industry standard or better in every case. Anyone getting into security needs to understand going in is that your pay is going to vary from site to site, and you cannot base your wage on any other person unless they are on your site with your exact same job details.

Finally the company takes time and energy to recognize employees who go above and beyond. Which is not something done in many other Firms.
Pros
Excellent Operations Leadership and Management from the top down
Cons
Low paying industry across the board
