Run away as fast and as far away as possible!
Where do I begin? This company is a joke. From the get-go, you had to pay for your uniform and equipment (a red flag), management has no integrity, and you get treated less than human, reduced to nothing but a number to them. Training is lacklustre, their clients' sites are okay but Paragon management is something else. There are so many violations of the code of ethics, human rights, and labour laws that they like to sweep under the rug. Long 12-hour continental shifts mean you don't have a life outside of work, because you'll be so exhausted all you'll do is rest and recuperate on your days off. Benefits? What's that? You don't get any information on any of that but you'll be paying for it even if you're not enrolled and have no benefits. Oh you have a problem that management won't deal with, let's call the union rep since we're paying 50 for it every paycheck right? Nope. Management and union are in bed with each other. They won't help you, you don't even know their existence and their coup #. That how little info this company gives you. You will have to constantly call HR people because they don't have the answers ready for you, and you can't trust your schedulers because they give different answers everytime. You have to keep checking your pay stub and your hours because they can't even get that right, and dispute it every time. They have favourites, and only those get the chance to move up, not based on merits, no, sir. There is no accountability from this company, you will be nothing but a machine to line their pockets. I have many stories but I will leave it at this. Turn around and find somewhere else to apply. Go find somewhere that will treat you like you actually matter as a human being and doesn't suck all your life out. Stay away from this company. Beware!

Not a place for growth
Overall the experience at paragon is horrible. They underpay and treat you like garbage. Stay away from the Oshawa office if you can because the admin doesn't provide basic needs unless forced to. Will ask for you to do many things outside of your actual job in order to please a client even if your health and wellness is hurt for it. Only good for a basic paycheque and job security because so many people quitting that they keep everyone they can get a hold of. Will attempt to change your hours a lot to save money.

Interview questions

I don't remember on top of my head, but it's basic questions

Shared on 11 September 2019

Literally nothing, because they're desperate for anyone to take the role.

Shared on 13 June 2019

Barely any just asked when I was available How I heard about them and in my case why was I volunteering. No questions like the common opener, tell me about yourself, How much do you know about the company, future goals. No questions like that. The interview just seemed rushed.
