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

0 advancement Opportunities, Horrible pay, N0 loyalty
Security Guard (Full Time) (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC11 June 2019
Footprints security is a low life, Scum, Deceiving Manipulative joke of a Company. I forgot they're also Liars. All the company is interested in is owners Sons run the company and rip off if their employees minus office workers their wage is NORML. Because they make sure that the guards are getting screwed over. 20% of employees are immigrants 50% of the employees are senior citizens. So the immigrants and the seniors citizens work for nothing that's a a problem. Immigrants can't speak English. Senior citizens can't stay awake or move. That's the problem with the security guard industry is that the majority is is made of seniors and immigrants. So the people that actually do security work gets screwed because they put you on a job site where you have to do all kinds of security duties. Because you can't do anything about it. So you're stuck working with a bunch of useless coworkers. If security guards all stuck together in all the companies and stopped working we could get a better wage instead of getting ripped off.
Pros
Get to work by yourself
Cons
Horrible wages, spineless employees, office workers making sure to screw you over, so they can get a decent salary

Needs a better management system.
Mobile Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC3 October 2017
This company didn't have a very good management system in place when I worked there. Hopefully that has improved over the years since I've been gone.
Total lack of communication between management and employees.
Pros
Lots of work provided to anyone who wanted it.
Cons
Low pay and no benefits.
