Bonnes équipes de travail.

Employee (Current Employee) –  Regina, SK11 October 2018
They will need to invest way more into this company to make it whole again. Upper management doesn't seem eager to invest in this location and that is causing problems through the company.

Nice company with lot of work in GTA. They pay minimum,which is unsatisfactory to the work we do. Overall, if you want to make extra money with your full time job, then go for it.

Bad management. Security agent treated like pure idiot. Lazy agents, always get promoted, compare to good agents. Working hours simply crazy (on call only). Have to be available 24 hours a days 7 days a week. Impossible to have a normal family life.
Pros
Nice co-workers

Bad mangement. Bad team leaders

Extremely Un-Professional
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  York Mills, ON5 October 2018
Call center schedules are extremely unprofessional. They will pick up the phone with a plain hello, and you can hear the misery in their voice, they will never work with you to give you a shift, always tell you to call back and the cycle goes on. Management is also pretty slow in resolving the matters at hand, they will not reply to your email or will take forever to resolve anything, even my site manager has troubles getting anything done with Garda management. I have worked with other companies and this is so far the worst experience.
Pros
give you proper uniform for free
Cons
Unprofessional Management

Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON2 October 2018
On a typical day working with Garda I provided a great deal of customer service.I also secured premises and personnel by patrolling property and monitoring surveillance equipment.Prevent losses and damages by reporting irregularities. Lastly I completed reports by recording observations, information and occurrences.I learned that working as a security guard comes with great responsibility and taking that responsibility serious for the safety of not only the clients but yourself is mandatory.

Get promises in writing
Guard (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 September 2018
When hired I was promised wages higher than industry norm, regular raises and advancement opportunities. I received minimal work on the spare board and below average wages. Moral of the story is get promises in writing and never believe everything that you are told. They hire people and forget about them and then wonder why people quit.
Pros
Pay was on time
Cons
Bad management low morale no incentive to stay

Not what you would expect from an employer
Screening Officer (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON14 September 2018
The concept of the position is great, the execution is flawed. The culture and work environment is tense, demoralizing and stressful. Officers are expected to do the same position for hours at a time due to "operational requirements" however, their SOPs states no longer than 30 minutes at any given position for focus and alertness reasons. Constant fear of being disciplined or having certifications removed (which means no scheduled shifts until recertified) over "fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants rules and an unmeasurable amount of favouritism.
Pros
Pay is decent
Cons
Very discouraging work environment
