good hours, bad pay and even worse management for everything we have to do

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good schedule even though it changes often, but we have to find our own replacements if we want days off. Cant ever get a hold of dispatch, let alone scheduling or HR. Don't get paid enough to deal with the stuff that comes from management, as well as lots of extra things we have to do that arent in the job description

Pros

sometimes you get a relaxed day ticketing/arrests/tresspass decent coworkers

Cons

management is terrible low pay every day there seems to be more rules put into place

Good Experience to Start Not worth staying long-term

I worked for a good amount of time with Logixx Security in Hamilton. If you are starting young and new to security and want to advance into law enforcement some of the Hamilton Sites are great for experience. But it the long term do not stay with the company they offer benefits which is good but the pay is not worth the amount of work you deal with and the numerous amount of issues that occur. From being assaulted to dealing with medicals, overdoses conducting arrests. It shouldn't be near minimum wage that it is at. The other issue with Logixx is management. Specifically one Hamilton site which has a higher up being who does not take control off issues on there site. From staff being clicky with eachother, people in open relationships that disappear for hours while on shift, supervisors who do the bare minimum and don't train, and causes drama and prys staff to gossip it leads to a very disheartening environment that causes a lot of headache for the staff members and more imposes a safety risk for staff both on the physical and mental health aspect. Overall if you work here I suggest you stay out of issues and politics and get your experience and leave.

Great Place to Work

The typical work day in Goderich is that a team of security guards position and temperature screen-ers. Most of the shifts are 12 hours and there are some 4, 5 and 8 hours to help the during the shift change for the mine.We are an unionized place with free medical and dental benefits after three months. The company provide the cost of renewing your licences such as first aid and security. The teams are broken down in four groups covering the 7/24 365 days a year operation. The pace is a very relaxed for approx 10 hours of the 12 hour shift. You currently conduct foot, mobiles and guardhouse rotation.The work place culture is good with the use of Human Performance tools.The most rewarding is to work with a great team that works for me.

Pros

Know your schedule, great team, Paid breaks

Cons

none

Literal horrible place to work at

Be prepared to have absolutely no free time or personal life and be overworked for the bare minimum salary wise. The staff that have worked there for a while are completely disrespectful and the workplace is very uncomfortable.

Pros

Literally nothing

Cons

Long hours no breaks

Varying pace of work depending on site, no benefits for frontline guards, professional dress and deportment

I have been working for Logixx for over a year, the first 2 weeks were spent as a floater, the rest as a full time employee. Advancement from guard to supervisor is based off of your own performance and position availability. Hourly pay rates are site specific and raises are site specific and obtainable through professional growth and performance.Virtual training courses are well thought out and national training manager is always willing to make extra courses available for guards that request it.In ottawa there is not much room for advancement past supervisor due to size and scope of operations and contracts in the region.

Pros

Room for advancement up to supervisor, easily accessible training, quick transition from floater to full time, possibility for wage increases

Cons

No benefits, not much room for advancement into management roles

Bad co to work for period

Combative, blame game for poor micro mgmt procedures.Unless you're looking for just a few bucks till the next thing comes along. This would not be the company to either have long term commitment to or expect anything other than a new medical bill. Best option do anything elseThis is a last choice long term dead end Short term less than a year is okBut get out as fast as possible

Pros

Its a paycheck

Cons

Everything! starting with owners and mgrs

No backup in case of emergency

Sometimes supervisors have no backup specially during night shift as they are sleeping and away from site according to them. Confirmed that they are watching web series or sleeping through sources. So I don’t recommend doing night shifts with them with this kind of environment.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

No job security, no backup in case of emergency
