Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Good question22 July 2018
Company has a good approach, but has no clear direction. Treat staff like cattle. Make empty promises on sites and hours. Typical for basic security, you are as good as you hire!

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
