Bad Management
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC12 October 2019
Company promises shifts then gives you none. Wasted lots of time with this company only to receive nothing in return. Might be okay if they actually give you shifts, but even then the bad communication skills of management might be enough to make you look elsewhere.

A wonderful work environment
Computer Setup (Former Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC15 September 2019
I've enjoyed working for footprints immensely the employees are wonderful and welcoming on top of hard-working. Management is adaptive and understanding of situations which would interfere with working.

Not good
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC22 July 2019
I am working with this company and it is going on 3 months with no shifts. They keep hiring but won't give their previously hired employees. They even tell you to have another job. Not worth being hired by them.
Cons
Wont give you shifts

Do not become a Mobile Driver
Mobile Patrol Guard (Current Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC18 June 2019
Static work is fine, you show up to a certain location and do nothing for 8 - 12 hours. Mobile driving is a whole different beast and I suggest no one do it. 5x the amount of work and stress for 2$ extra per hour.

Their "schedule flexibility" is absolutely untrue, there is such a high turn around good luck getting your requested time off. Also their Medical & Dental plan is false advertisement. They don't offer dental and their medical plan is trash.

Great job for extra side coin, terrible as a full time position.
Pros
Easy work if you do static/stationary work
Cons
Literally everything about the company and mobile work

Terrible place to work

Total lack of communication between management and employees.
