Cool training, bad schedules
Training for 1.5 weeks in firearms and law before testing. Schedule is based on seniority (casual to fulltime night then day) have to do night shifts before getting to days Overtime is mandatory if you dont finish your run. Paid over time is 1.5x sometimes double time most of the guys and gals are nice Everything is rushed no benefits for part timers and casuals
Cons
Long hours if you dont know your route

Very Militant, but friendly
Not hard to tell from the beginning of your first day at GardaWorld that it is definitely not what you expect. You see these men and women on the road and at stops and think "holy s** they look bada*s. I definitely would not want to F** with them" then you get hired and go "well wtf was I looking at before?" Don't get me wrong. These people are very badass and very professional at their work. But like any other profession, they are human. They have lives and chat and goof around when time allows it. The union isn't very good but they do have us on a yearly wage increase which is nice. If you are a casual than good luck getting benefits or an RRSP contribution. And with the way they open full time spots, you'll be a casual for at least 2-5 years minimum. Unless someone screws something up royally. And even then it's based on seniority. Management is awesome where I'm at. Very friendly and will help you out anyway possible. Definitely 10/10 on that regard. Overall, if you like working long nights and days, and constantly looking at grannies hands for weapons to ensure they aren't going to either stick you up or walk you with their purse than this is the spot for you.
Pros
Daily OT, very high wages, good balance of life
Cons
Union, last min calls, On-call

Good place to work
Good place to work but it is a union job and it doesn't matter how long you've been there you make the same as a rookie. Never dreaded going in to work and was over all a great experience. You can make a lot of money but you have to A. Get a chance at OT and B. Sacrifice all free time for the OT.
Pros
Good benefits package
Cons
Old equipment, disorganization, dangerous, doesn't pay enough for the risks
