You'll probably be more qualified than your boss
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 January 2019
You will discover after working there that management and directors are largely unqualified for their jobs. The majority of them do not have a secondary school education, meaning that their subordinates are generally are more educated than they are. The head honcho of the CN Tower started as a line cook, now he's in charge of the entire building's operations.
Management will preach to you about how you are "the best of the best", but any other in-house security job in Toronto will pay you more (for example, the ROM, the MTCC, and the AGO all pay higher wages).
Work environment is toxic, basically high school all over again. Those "awesome coworkers" you think you have will be saying all sorts of things about you. You'll only have a handful of people that are genuinely awesome; try to identify them quickly.
Part time employees are expected to work the same hours, do the exact same job, and have the exact same responsibilities as full timers despite being paid less and receiving no benefits.
When someone has been there for a long time, the upper management will fire them and hire someone new so they can pay them less money. This problem was *rampant*, and was a big part of the reason why the building is poorly run and completely disorganized.
If you work in security, you will have no opportunity for advancement. You *might* be able to get a supervisor position, but odds are very good that you won't want the added responsibility for the miserable pay increase.
It looks good on your resume
