Healthcare Security Guard in GTA, ON

Good starting company
At the site I was assigned to I was lucky enough to have full time and good people to work with on the front lines. Management is like any other contract security company when it comes to prescreening, interviews, and scheduling.

It was good job, specially for students.
Overall good experience with G4s security. They paid the salary depend on your site. It was my first job in Canada and helped me manage my expenses during studies.

Pay hike helpful during COVID 19 crisis
It was very helpful during COVID 19 to have a positive employer who was able to see the wage problem. Having a higher pay gave me a positive mindset to work harder and be more pro active during my shifts knowing I could afford to pay my bills comfortably.
Security Guard/Concierge in 21 Nelson St. and other sites

Learn a lot on the job however pay is horrible!
My first couple of years with G4S was good although the pay was not. I had started out working in commercial and transferred over to residential where I worked in roles such as patrol guard, concierge and filling in for security supervisor when needed. Had some issues with management where they would take everything from a mobile guard, property manager etc. on face value. If I didn't keep record and documentation they would have left me in the rabbit hole. Just remember to always cover yourself in this line of work, in any work.

It depends on your site
It is a minimum wage security job in the beginning and may climb to around 20 dollars p/h depending on your site or if you are a manager. Great for a foundation on your resume but not as a career
