Good employees
There are various roles that you can work at. However, you will get trained. The training generally is for two weeks and you will get paid for it.

Good job for experience but not for a career.
Can be a stepping stone to gain good experience but getting good pay and making a career is hard. Your site can be short term or permanent which affects your job security.

Fast paced work environment, possible to make over 100k/yr with overtime
Great new management at the Gardaworld Cash Services Vancouver branch. There were some problems with previous managers who have since left but their replacements are working hard to create a positive, respectful work environment and they are succeeding.20/hr to start as a casual which goes up to 29/hr after a few months once you get part time status.Opportunities to make over 100k/yr with overtime.Fast paced work environment suited for younger people. Vast majority of employees are under 35.

All different work sites
Most of the co workers I worked with were great. Depending on site depends on pay. Most of management is decent but at times feel ignored or not listened to

I feel I was not shown honor by the management and staffing team.I was not allowed to choose my shift even though I was site lead and available shifts were not reasonable or available so I have found additional part time work as no available shifts that did not conflict with other weekend part time work or within reasonable travel and I was told my rate was reduced to $15 per hour.

Interview questions

They already know if you are being interviewed, they ask availablilty, if you are bilingual, can you legally work in canada, do you have a car, why do you want to work here and name a time you gave exceptional customer service. If they were planning to interview you they give you a time in this case for the next day, if not you just wasted more of your day and are sent home. Honestly if felt like they went in with a list of those they wanted already and the ones on that list that passed got interviews, for the rest you're just a testing number and probably just get the form letter in a week saying no thanks. If you write the tests and pass you should get a real shot at the job but I've read this is not reflective of the company at all. People aren't treated very well at Garda.
