A Lot of Smoke and Mirrors
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Commerce Court/First Canadian Place – 23 March 2018
When you first arrive at Head Office Paragon, it looks very professional. However, unless you are selected for a flagship property, you will be working for very low wages and expected to work on a moments notices, is is a good thing if you're not concerned about work life balance and want the overtime. If you are at a flagship property, you will have to continually deal with transient guards with no site training, a low level of personal pride and professionalism and lacking the required equipment. Paragon is always hiring, due to the high turn over, this is usually based on the fact that after a very short while (unless you are new to the country and have little command over the english language) you discover there is something better out there.
Management is liken to used car salesman, lacking in leadership skills but filled with many promises (beware what's really behind the smile).
Advancement within the company is impossible as there is limited room, if you have any skill you will be stuck and remain exactly where there want you, not where you wish to go. If security is an industry you wish to follow, contract security companies are not in your best interest, in-house and municipal positions offer better pay and the respect as a person you deserve. Trust me, you will not find it with this company.
