Toxic Environment, management only cares about their own pay cheques and incentives doesn’t care about the staff under them. Very stressful and hectic. Wastage of your time and skills if you are working in this company as the only need you until you are working according to them not according to company’s policies and protocols. Favouritism all the time

It is your typical contract security company-low pay -some amazing team members -lots of overtime available-get everything from corporate in writing as they will tell you one thing and do another.-You will be promised (free/paid) training but often it will be not provided.- your uniforms will fall apart after a few wears and washes knowing how to sew will be an asset.

Favoritisme accordé à certains employés concernant le répartiteur en fonction durant ma période d’embauche.Il avantageais et protégeais les employés de sa race noire.Grande lacune sur la description des tâches que j’avais à effectuées sur un poste de la part de mon superviseur.J’ai remarqué beaucoup de préjugés négatifs en fonction de mon nom de famille Jacob.
Pros
Tâches intéressantes à accomplir sur les postes offerts.
Cons
Problêmes de communication et d’instruction concernant les tâches à accomplir sur le poste.

The Windsor branch is one of the most toxic places I have ever worked. Management ignores complaints. Often will threaten you. Pay is garbage. Benefits are poor and the company does not offer pension plans. Office management is wildly unprofessional and non responsive. Staff are not supported and get constant promises of new safety equipment that never comes. Worst job I’ve ever had, hands down! Unfortunately due to covid, not much else out there. The second I get offered a job that pays 10 cents an hour or more, I’ll quit without giving notice
Pros
Coworkers are generally a good bunch
Cons
Office management is horrendous. Benefits suck, no pension, pay is bare minimum
