Worked at Research In Motion (RIM) the Blackberry Smart Phone company for Guardsmark. Lots of diverse duties from giving security badges to the CEO to using the X-Ray on lunch bags for factory employees. Management was professional and fair. Many of the supervisors were building up experience to apply to the local police departments. Some would - more ... emphasize service vs legalistic vs watchman styles. You had to learn your supervisor's style and your time would go smoothly. The hardest part of the job was rotating 12 hours shifts every two weeks from a 7 a.m. start to a 7 p.m. start. - less
ProsLots of variety
ConsLack of benefits
