Healthcare Security Officer in Halifax, NS

Valuable experience, Benefits, and Ok insurancd.
Experience is the best thing this company has to offer. Whether its healthcare, construction, or retail. The pay is the only downside and the benefits help a little but not by a huge margin.

Abandoned
Paladin recieved a new contract somewhere else and the current contract became unimportant if feels.Most of the coworkers at me site were great but we were chronically short staffed.

Excellent training and supportive management
Wonderful job opportunity where employees are treated well with respect and driven to perform through varied ways of motivation. The supervisors are also supportive, we get all the guidance and support that we need to be good at our job. Expectations are reasonable and everyone is professional.

It would be a great job if it wasn't for managnent
Honestly I really love where I work,and that's probably why it's so hard to be finally calling it quits at Paladin soon. Working in the healthcare environment is a tough environment and not for all, I understand that. But it is an exciting work mix for me and it has worked for years now for me. It would be helpful if we felt like we actually had managnent that cared about us and not just the profit they make from us.That being said the pay is definitely not enough. I've been bitten, scratched, punched, and hit by patients all in the course of my job. All of that with compensation that keeps shrinking as time goes on because Paladin doesn't increase salaries with inflation.Management is poor too. You rarely see them visit the site, or understand what the work environment is, more often than not an email is sent out in response to a situation that they don't understand the intricacies to. And if you do send management an email correcting or informing them of the situation you get an email back stating that your tone is inappropriate, treating you like a toddler asking their parents a question they don't like.Because of this and many other issues this is causing us to run short staffed. A shift that is supposed to have 10 guards on may only have half that, turning what can be a stressful day into a nightmarish backlog of stacked calls and angry clinical staff as you try to balance the needs of the hospital to your dwindling resources. A lot of guards are leaving or are planning on leaving because of the mess being created by managnent.This is also leaving a lot of inexperienced guards (who are horribly under trained by paladin) in situations they aren't prepared to handle increasing injuries further.Also training is a mess. New guard training is horrible now. When I started it was a 40 hour course. To be fair back then it needed work but has gotten even worse and new guards are being set up for failure causing even higher turnover.Something needs to change. I'm not sure if it's a branch problem or something higher up in the corporate ladder but there's something cancerous that needs to be removed soon.To those still reading this, don't apply. There's plenty of other jobs out there that pay as good or better. There's plenty that can get you experience for a future law enforcement career. And jobs where you're appreciated more, and less likely to come home incredibly stressed and/or injured.
