seems like a good company, however my experience was'nt great
Security Guard/Screener (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 April 2018
This company pays well. However, in my experience they over promised the amount of hours available, leading myself and others to take time out of our lives for work, only to get much less hours than we had been promised.
Venue Coordinator Pan Am Games (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 December 2017
This was a short contract for the Pan Am games. I really learned a lot about venue security and what I am capable of. I had the opportunity to meet athletes from all over the world competing at the games. For many it was an olympic pre-qualifier requirement. The hardest part were the rotating 12 hour shifts as I am not good with overnight shifts. IT was just a fantastic experience getting to be part if it. While working, I never had to worry about meals as every shift was catered.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 September 2017
My time working with Contemporary Security Canada was quite an eye opening experience. Before I came to them I had no experience in the field of Event Security, or Security in any case, and from their coaching, guidance and expertise I was able to get a glimpse into what the job demanded of me through my training.
After undertaking the course offered by them I was thoroughly prepared for what may come, be it in an emergency situation or not, and I am all the better prepared for future jobs in the field of Security.

The management of the company were very welcoming and friendly, all were willing to help and educate the trainees and/or workers with information. All the security guards, as well as the supervisors built a type of camaraderie. Well organized environment and focused on task, instruction were well explained. Overall a satisfying experience.
