Not Bad for student

Overall good paying job for temporary situations like student, but could also be something you do for the rest of your life if it satisfies you. The pay takes care of most student expenses and the workload is generally pretty light.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Unstable hours, management is not the best

Excellent company to begin career

Good company to start your career with.Lots of job opportunities and opportunities for advancement and promotion. Company like to promote from within, so if you stay a while and work hard, you can definitely move up in the company.

Pros

Unionized, plenty of opportunities

Cons

Guard pay could be better, but is competitive with companies of the same type of standard positions

Bad company ever

They don’t treat their employees well. They are authoritative. The advantage is that they have a lot of contract in Montreal. But it depends on your supervisor, maybe your supervisor will be kind.

Not terrible

I found out after leaving that the reason why so many “taxes” is being taken off your pay is because they charge for uniform on every pay. They don’t even tell you.

Pros

Nice coworkers

Cons

No room for advancement

Tons of drama ! The company gives you nothing. They don’t even thank you for anything. It’s a very difficult job unless you like drama Passengers hate you. No matter how nice you are

Pros

Decent wage

Cons

330 am starts

Very intensive

Always ask you to work longer than shift time, mess up pay and extremely difficult to deal with management. If you agree to work an extra shift once they will always try to pressure you to work another.

Horrible employer, miserable employees.

The upper management make this job absolutely unbearable. they only care about what looks best and makes the upper management happy, they have no regard for the well-being or happiness of the rest of the employees. high turnover rate for both screening officers and management. the union also does little to nothing to help the employees. everyone except the management is miserable. i would never recommend this job to anyone and it is definitely not a career. once you start you're trapped by the pay. it’s just enough to keep you from quitting but not enough to make it a worthwhile job.

Pros

paid breaks

Cons

Run for your life

Again don't work for these guy's,managment is on a control trip. They don't know about the disabilities act in Ontario. The operation manager is on a super man trip. Terrible company to work for. Nothing nice to say about them. They will be really nice to you to cover a shift, but when s.... goes down they will s.... down your throat. .

salaire bas et avantages sociaux de base

aucun plan dentaire..... salaire bas reste au plancher du decret.... syndicat metallos se grand syndicat ? syndicat morceler en petit morceaux donc moins de force et chaque petit morceaux a une compagnie differente pour les avantages sociaux.... un grand syndicat unis aurait peut-etre une meilleure qualite d'avantages sociaux pour tout ces membres...... retention de personnel = qualite d'avantages sociaux, salaire et ambiance de travail.......? voila mon avis ... garda laisse a desire sur les 3 criteres....

Pros

uniformes fournis

Cons

pas d assurances dentaire

This is unprofessional company to work for.

If you like to work at a company that doesn’t give you proper training and doesn’t recognize you as an actual employee but a number, this is a great place for you!! The management does a terrible job in communicating with you and manipulates what you say to them to make themselves look better. They won’t provide you with proper reasoning for shift changes and won’t listen to any of your concerns if you have an issue with them.Do yourself a favour and do not work here. You can find yourself another position that shows you respect and values you for a much better pay.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Everything

Bad company

I've been with garda for 3 months and it's the worst company ever high stress very demanding and the management overall sucks wouldn't recommend. The only good thing is that it will get you other job opportunities after you work there

Pros

None

Cons

Almost everything

Mess of a company

A mess of a company everyone is there for drama and some cross personal boundaries. Everyone thinks they are better than one another youdon’t get paid for the amount of work and stress these people put onto you. They refuse to increase pay and they rather lose employes then give raises. Run for the hills when you see this company

Pros

Favouritism nothing else

Cons

Long hours, working all holidays, management does not take input, refuse to give raises, talking bad to the guards

Unionized, company hates that

Work is work. Supervisors are company men. You, as a number, are easily replaced. The supervisors make sure you know that. You pay a deposit for your uniform.

Pros

It's a job

Cons

Management are idiots
