Best Security Company to work for.I moved to Canada in January 2017 and since March 2017 I’ve been working with Paragon. Paragon helped me in everything. I was able to apply for my permanent immigration status through Paragon. Hard Work always pays off. Amazing People.

Extremely friendly and cooperative work environment and management

I was fortunate enough to land a full time site within my first week of being hired. The site is very nice and matched what I was looking for as a Security Guard. The management that I have had are very friendly and realistically accommodating. I never felt like I was unimportant or "just a number", and never felt even a whiff of ego/attitude when communicating or requesting something as an employee from management. I definitely recommend working here if you are looking for a security company that cares about you and has many sites throughout the GTA.

Productive

I had good experience of work with Paragon. Mangement was problem solving, colleagues were helping, my site was good and easiest to work. My shift timings were friendly. After all I will never forget the golden period I passed in Paragon. I will never miss the chance if I again get the job in Paragon again.

Security Company that provides room for advancement

My job as a recruiter is not only limited to interviewing and hiring, but looking after all of the new employees on my team and ensuring that I am steering them on a path for success. I have been working in the security industry for over 5 years and I have not worked with another company that cares about it's guards as much as Paragon does. Good guards are made by good guard companies.

Growth and Goal Oriented

I have been with Paragon for almost 4 years now. I joined the company just to get a job to pay bills but decided to stay because of the culture. I started as a Security Guard moved to Mobile Supervisor, then got promoted to Dispatcher and now I work as a recruitment specialist. My experience has been great during my time, I have been offered opportunities to grow and support to develop my personal and professional skills.Would definitely recommend working here.

Working as an Administrative in Locating department

In a typical day at work, I fulfilled the management tasks of opening and closing the facility. Also, I am doing various administrative duties including answering phone calls, drafting documents, emails, filing and greeting visitors and provides strong customer service.I learned numerous things from this job as I got to know about how organization works in a quick way as well as learn the fastest way to get administrative work done. I learnt how to build connection as administrative staff speak to everyone and this role gives opportunity to make contact and connections with a wide variety of people. Also, I learnt how to liaise with multiple departments, organization of data, proficiency in Microsoft, PowerPoint and excel, filing and recording reports/other documents, and handling multiple tasks. Last but not least, learn what exactly teamwork called, as it’s a indeed fact that teamwork makes the dream work. The management is well managed and organized as well as the workplace culture is respectful and fairness. There is a trust and integrity, growth mindset, communication, transparency, diversity and many more. I am not finding anything hard about my job and I am enjoying each and every part of my job.

Fantastic work culture, really cares about their employees

I am currently working at Paragon Security as a Manager and I can confidently say that the work culture here is amazing. The owner of the company truly cares for the staff that work here. Whether you are in a guard position, or a head office position. He is all about making things easy, respecting one another, and providing all the tools necessary to make everyone succeed. Small wins, big wins, they are always recognized, and I am fortunate to be part of a company like this.

Career advancement at the peak

Best company to work with in terms of work life balance, career advancement and appreciation. currently working with them for more than 3 years. Started my career as a Guard and currently working as a Recruiter within 3 years. This is a family based company and treat everyone as they are one of their family member.

Pros

Appreciation, great management, lot of hours

Cons

nothing at the moment

A great place to grow

My experience has been all positive. Paragon is a supportive and well run company that puts their guards first. Paragon has opportunities for all experience levels, they hire students, new Canadians and seasoned security professionals. A great place to work.

low pay

every site is different, so its difficult to talk about the amount of work, stress, the people you work with and etc, so I cannot say much. But as for paragon itself, the pay is low, you often work with people that just moved to the country so their english is not good, thus making the job more difficult than it has to be. paragon has been losing a lot of sites recently, and I am not surprised. but at the same time, it can it can possibly also be clients that are unreasonably. some clients treat security as real employees, my sites treat paragon security as scape goats, security gets blamed for everything. security in general is a dead end job, its easy but useless in the end.
