Excellent supportive workplace! Awesome direct manager

The company has been excellent to work for. I’ve been with them since the end of January and they’ve been great in assisting with questions I have and trying to schedule me in. They are open to suggestions to try to improve. They are new to the province so there are always growing pains but they encourage employees to present themselves in a positive manner to represent the company by being professional. This will allow them to grow and expand.

Pros

Supportive, comparative pay to other security firms, 2 uniforms supplied. Safety gear supplied.

Cons

Lack of benefits

Productive and honesty

If you want to have a reliable and responsible supervisor, you should try to be a part of this company. They are training you and make you a perfect LPO while you work for them.

Pros

Good Salary and enough hours. Honest and reliable supervisor

Just like every other security job out there

There is a lot of management favouritism. For regular employees you will find yourself without benefits, but the management team however gets benefits. You will start to find that no matter how hard you work or how much time you are there you will be passed up for someone the manager knows. There is some great employees working but unfortunately they are at a dead end and can't grow. If you want just a normal security job then sure go for it. Blackbird is nothing special but yet they promise you that it is.

Pros

Decent wages, easy work, and friendly coworkers

Cons

Favoritism, no room to grow, managment in fighting

Gossip central

If you are entering the industry as LP, run away. This company will provide one day training, then if they need shifts covered, you are thrown into the fire. If you are fortunate you will get two days training, sometimes by staff with very little experience, and very little ability to train others. The demand for stats is unreasonable, especially with the meagre training they provide. Although this company has the opportunity to be top notch, they chose to place untrained LP’s in the stores of their clients and ignore training needs of staff. Senior management and owners have been advised of the issues, but chose to carry on with the status quo. Eventually their clients will discover, most likely through a bad stop or excessive use of force, that they made a bad decision hiring this company. It’s too bad because there are some really good human beings working there.

Pros

Wages are good

Cons

Zero benefits

Very good work experience, not for everyone though.

Management on V.I. is great, easy to get hold of and you make your own schedule at the beginning of every week. Pay is fair and from what I see advancement in this field could be very fast. I've never had any issues with getting paid on time. A company that has your back, there is always someone not far away if any trouble begins.They have a very good safety net.

Pros

As many hours as you can handle, and you will get course paid for after being here 6 months

Cons

no benefits

Worst company to work with

Poor management and use your time with their needs. When they need you they give you working hours else dont. The managers do not provide you training and send you to sites where you are not comfortable working with.

Nice Company to work for

I am happy to work with this company. Positive managers/supervisors and professional management with flexible working hours. I got proper training on regular basis. Also, they do not charge for uniforms.

Rapidly growing security company

One of the fastest growing companies in Canada with a lot of promotional, advancement and salary related benefits. If you have dedication, discipline, good work ethics and above average communication skills then the management can do anything to keep you in team. Best thing about this company is you gonna meet a lot of new friends with a years of experience in law and enforcement and even managers also help you to accomplish your future goals. Nothing is hard in this job for any individual because in the first week the highly experienced management tests your abilities and then give you the taskes and locations according to your performance.

Pros

Salary, management, advancement opportunities

Cons

Highly competitive

Great experience working

I’ve joined this company less than 3 months ago and my experience with them has been phenomenal until today. The management is cooperative and knows how work with the employees. Even the owners keep a regular check on the work of employees which is great.

Stressful experience

Working here was difficult to say the least. I was given a outdoor static guard site overnights in early spring which essentially meant freezing every night until I purchased the proper clothing to do so ($175 out of pocket). After raining for 1-2 shifts I requested to be switched to another site which I was told "wasn't possible" so I went on shift that night and got put through the ringer (told I could be fired) for being 5 mins late at which point I quit.

Pros

Lots of Hours

Cons

Poor working conditions
