Never out of work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Started 2+ years and always getting enough hours, schedule staff are very cooperative and understands your availability. Managers are their when u need them. I am just comfortable working different sites as not boring and stuck on one place. Money is not great but stress level is low too. Be honest with your work & availability level open for any shift will keep your job safe.

Pros

None

Cons

Pay

Stressfull and hectic place to work

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

would not recommend

I was hired as a part time scheduler. they didnt say anything about training pay being less than regular pay, I was hired for graveyard shift I was told someone would always be avail for me if needed, which wasnt true, I was left on my own after only 3 days of training, unable to contact anyone. worst experience ever. The computer went down, the guard application to book on and off went down, Wasnt left with any phone numbers to call, no emergency back up plan of any kind. Felt unsafe for guards as well as myself. Door to building was left open twice that I noticed well on duty.Would not recommend this company to anyone.

Working as casual guard.

Slow pace environment job, hours varies, mostly you need to worked night or afternoon shift. You need to balance your personal time management with your work schedule.

Pros

Good place to worked as security guard.

Cons

Less hours guarantee.

Management was a good and very bad mixture.

Not sure of the chain of command, many good people mixed in with women getting away with things regular hard workers would not. Favoured darker skinned races, special right to Muslims, 5 times a day, for 90 minutes they prayed in the toilets in the oil sands. Minus 60c and still took their lunch and 2 15 minute breaks while non muslims had to scan vehicles for 12 hours .at.eextreme temperatures
