teams can be very friendly if you make it on the team
cant give a review when the job sites are different in every way, if the company feels that you are their guy or gal they will give you the extra assistance for training

Horrendous
Horrendous company to work for, especially for the signalisation part of the company. Management is terrible, they have a favoritism going for them at all times with other employee's. If you aren't friends with upper management be prepared to be treated like dirt.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many

Decent
Besides the horrible pay, pay cheque always being wrong, very disorganized and bad management, it's a decent place to work.

Lots of freedom being on mobile which is nice. Also, as supervisors over static guards the company should really think about giving their mobile drivers a higher wage. Shouldn't be making less than static guards.

Its all good
Its a good company but management need a bit more training and tools. They seem to promote people and not shadow them enough. Management try to be friendly with staff and forget that they are the autority.

Security guard
I was super happy at the beginning of my work with GardaWorld, later as I worked with the company. I found out there was a communication issue between security officer and the management. I was promised to be paid a benefit just like any other worker in the company they never approved it and kept avoiding my request whenever I asked for the benefit. The hourly wage was pretty terrible, minorities have no voice in the company. Their salary is pretty low compared to certain workers in their company. I was hired as a full-time worker and was placed later to work as a casual employee. Truthfully I wish I never went for an interview.

Terrible Company
Terrible organization, no loyalty in retaining staff. If your a fair looking female the opportunities to move up are exponentially higher. Unprofessional, a lot young immature people in high places.

Je trouve des gens mal honnête chez garda
Je recommande chez garda sécurité de faire test psychologique a tout les employeurs car il y a des personnes mal honnête et avec des problèmes mental.

Emploi sur appel
Difficile de créer un budget car les heures sont variables. Difficile de gérer une vie familiale et sociale quand les heures de travail sont instables. Il faut être disponible en tout temps mais les heures de travail varient d'une semaine à l'autre.

Terrible company
I enjoyed most of the the amazing coworkers. Really gossipy work place.
I don’t have anything good to say about the company or the new manager .

If you are injured they don’t help out much. Part time people are not guaranteed hours. The job takes over your life. So glad I finally left. People are really stressed and afraid to say anything

The company has its flaws just like every other job in security, but it is worth while and compensations are available equal to the work you do.
Garda mobile is fun but stressful. You work alone for long periods. Do alot of driving and alot of walking. Be ready for all kinds of weather. Be aware you may need to purchase small things to make your night or day more comfortable.
Pros
Not usually much traffic. Work alone most times
Cons
Mostly night shifts. Work alone most times.

Pire compagnie
J’y travail depuis 8 ans et en cette crise de coronavirus, garda ne fait qu’exploiter ses employés et Facture leurs clients malgré les services non rendu. Money, money, money... très décevant. Et leur nouveau VP qui vient de dollarama... il vaut vraiment 1$.

Run away
Gardaworld is one of the biggest security companies in the world and just for that reason you should stay away. The company does not care about its employees, only its profits.

Unprofessional Regina Management Team
Poor management - people untrustworthy, inept, and lazy; management disregards health and safety regulations, collective agreement, labour laws, and Human Rights Commission guidelines; safety not a priority; bullying between employees and managers encouraged, union representation weak, employees discouraged from calling in sick and distrusted when they do.
Pros
Average for security industry
Cons
Toxic work environment; managers untrained; payroll often inaccurate, hours long and unwilling to take requests to change
