l'aspect le plus agréable !
Agent de Sécurité (sur appel) (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC28 November 2017
Chez Garda World ce qui est intéressant c'est que j'avais mon horaire pour la semaine qui suivait donc pas de mauvaise surprise. Et Garda respectait ma capacité à travailler ce qui est très stimulant, et j'y retournerais assurément. Je suis prêt à déménager à Québec pour réintégrer les rangs de cette entreprise !
Pros
flexibilité de l'horaire
Cons
difficulté de transfère

Gold mine security
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Val Gagne, ON28 November 2017
Enjoyed my time with the company. A 12 hour shift would contain patrols, data entry, vehicle and visitor/employee searches. You are also the first line of contact for any medical assistance needed.

Lots of hiring right now with no work available. Expect to sit at home waiting for a call that never comes.
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB24 November 2017
Every job site is different, so you get lots of variety. One day you can be working in a team environment with a lot of other guards and the next day you can be all by yourself out in the middle of nowhere.
Pros
Lots of variety in work environments and people that you work with.
Cons
Current management couldn't be more disorganized if they tried.

Horrible
Armed Guard - Casual (Former Employee) –  London, ON22 November 2017
No hours as a casual, sometimes you get one shift, sometimes three, or none. They always hire more and more people even though you are getting one shift and ready and able to work anytime!
And this is the situation for people that have been there as a casual 5+ years with still no chance of full time. Don't waste your time!

oh and the schedule is posted on wed evening for the schedule that coming sunday-saturday
Pros
I like the actual job
Cons
Very little hours, no respect for years worked, no notice for schedule

Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB21 November 2017
you can have a lot of hours working here if you are willing to do 12 hour shifts, have a reliable vehicle and have security clearances.
the office staff do not communicate well with each other and there is a high turn over rate with office staff. This makes it hard for the guards to feel safe working here.
Pros
good benifits
Cons
very little room to grow into managment or supervisors

Company cares about money they make off guards, not about the guards themselves
Senior Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK20 November 2017
Extremely poor management at the office - unprofessional and judgmental - only people who wanted to help are no longer there. Constant payroll errors and lackadaisical work attitude by management. This, along with any other security company, is only there to make a buck and will sacrifice guards to the whims of clients without a second thought.
