Was a great place to work
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Sydney, NS13 February 2018
this was before they took over the armoured car contracts. i worked at the airport screening employees of a company that chartered an airplane weekly. it paid well for what i needed and the other staff members were friendly and since we were very few staff in cape Breton we were like a little family.
Pros
good pay
Cons
too few hours

Worst Job I've Ever Had
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 February 2018
Worked specifically as CATSA through Garda World. Worst training I've ever received for a job. Push people through to get money from the government for each person trained. Aren't given the proper tools for the job. High stress, low pay for the job and skills required. Back stabbing culture. Management are waiting for you to make a mistake and instead of mentoring you to improve (even if it's one thing) they fire you to make room for more trainees. Toxic work environment. Can't believe this is a pseudo Government job. If this is what stands in the way of bad people boarding the planes..... I'll leave it at that.
Pros
None
Cons
Terrible shifts, terrible policies

Managing Supervisor Cash In Transit Services (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON7 February 2018
In the 3 and a half years I worked for this company I saw many Supervisors and Managers come and go. It is a fast paced high demand environment with little respect or support for the individual.
Pros
Good benefits, reasonable salaries
Cons
Long hours with little respect, or recognition.

Racist
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB1 February 2018
Very racist and discriminatory. They employ only ex military and law enforcements.
They use people and once they no longer are in need of those people, they kick them to the curb

Excellent and Very Proactive Work Environment
Airline Security (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB30 January 2018
Here it is very obvious that the company puts you first. They will ask you what hours and days works best for you, and management takes an interest in your concerns.

I could not say enough to promote GardaWorld, and this branch of Security.

Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB28 January 2018
a very exhasting job for the amount of effort and uniform they provide the pay is very low for such a tuff workplace you could be put in a trailier in the middle of no where and a supervisor may come check on you every 4 hours or soo in the middle of the night

An interesting place to work
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB26 January 2018
Garda provided several days of practical on boarding training, including First Aid, WHIMIS and several proprietary courses in crime prevention/detection. There was plenty of room for further education and advancement within the company.

Dead end job, working for management that doesnt know what they are doing
Armoured car guard (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC Canada7 January 2018
Typical Union vs Management.

Management hates its employees and will do whatever it can to make an extra doller. Dont waste your time here, its a dead end with only constant fighting for your rights. 27 an hour to risk your life at night with millions in cash.
Pros
Can be fun if you have a good partner
Cons
to many to liist. #1 is management
