Applicants for full time work should be available for all shifts. However, if an applicant has restrictions on certain hours or a site preference, this will not disqualify them for employment, but please be honest and discuss this with your Recruiter during the interview. Part time positions have more flexible hours.

Generally, you will start as a casual shift guard. Where you will get called at ANY time. Whenever a regular guard calls in sick or goes on vacation or if you are needed or a contractor escort. There's no set schedule. If you get on a swing shift then you will get a schedule but your hours will vary but you will get your standard 40 hours/ a week. Once, you get placed at a site then you might get the option to work either mornings, afternoons or nights. I find even working as a casual guard. There's enough work that you can accumulate 40 or more a week. You just have to be available and constantly say "yes" to taking shifts. If you say "no" too often. You won't get asked or selected for assignments. If you work out well. A site supervisor generally requests to keep the same guards instead of having to train new ones all the time. Where it can lead to a regular schedule. Generally new guards get placed at different locations at most times especially during the holidays.
