Special Events Security Guard (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 6 January 2018
Northwest is a great place to start work if it's your first security job. The people are great and you get to see some pretty awesome bands. The pay is low however but if you're just starting out, it's fun!

Provided me with great skills regarding customer services. Work at all different events and venues (Like ACC, Rogers Centre, Budweiser Stage) and get to have fun while doing it. Great team and a fun time
Security Guard/Event Staff (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 April 2017
You get there, and you're another body for them. kinda like a scarecrow. they put you in a spot and then hours later they let you leave it. I worked there for 3 years and no raises whatsoever even though they let have more responsibilities. No job security too.
Security Guard (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON, Toronto, Guelph, Oshawa – 14 April 2017
Interact with many different people and solve problems on the go. High energy position and always something new to deal with every shift. Management is always in touch with employees and ready to assist or give guidance when required.
Security Guard (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 March 2017
i work night shifts, so there isnt really that much to say, but i like the quiet nights. the event shifts are really fun to work at, you can see all the action there. the summers are the most active seasons.
Festival Security Guard - On-Call Staff (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 February 2017
super flexible shifts, great management overall on staff, friendly co-workers and free attendance to music festivals and other great opportunities to experience new culture. It is a great feeling to be a part of the running an entire event in helping to maintain a fun and safe environment for others, as well as being first responders to life threatening occurences and dealing with the situation the best way we can (the protocols). These are the benefits of working at Northwest Protection Services.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 September 2016
This company was awful to work for. Little organization and long hours with no breaks. Worked in 40 degree weather with no water breaks. Worked event up north promised a hotel room instead slept on a floor. No good supervisors all are rude and on power trips. So many of them smoke and have no consideration if your around. AVOID this company unless you enjoy being treated awful.
