  • Nice and clean business casual is sufficient. You want to look professional and serious.

  • They don't tell you at the onset that the job is a union position. You don't move up based on merit. You move up based on seniority. You have to bid for shifts, and if your seniority is low, you aren't getting any shifts. I am still waiting for a permanent shift 5 weeks after certification. Definitely disappointed considering you wait 5 months from the date they give you the new hire package to the date you actually start working.

  • Les agents armés en transport de valeurs ainsi que les agents de contrôle pré-embarquement doivent obligatoirement subir une vérification pré-emploi.Pour les agents de sécurité, plusieurs contrats ne nécessitent pas de vérifications de la part de GardaWorld. Néanmoins, dans les provinces où il est nécessaire d'avoir un permis de gardiennage pour travailler comme agent, les instances émettant ces permis procèdent généralement à une vérification d'antécédants avant de donner le permis. Il est préférable de vous informer auprès de l'instance provinciale en charge de ces permis.

  • 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.
