Great starting job

It is a great starting or part time job to have. The job is not as hard or difficult but you will get to know a lot of people and getting some customer service skill.

Wonder full company to work

it was a great place to work, my typical day at work was to do patrolling, keeping eye on suspicious things, greet and guide visitors and check their id. watch security cameras Write shift end reports. The best things was team work and the worst thing was using stairs for 14th floor building during patrol.

Pros

Free Piza on Fridays

Cons

none

I love the people i had work with

They are the few companies I enjoy to work with and they're encourage you to challenge yourself with confidence to grow with the company. They will help you towards promotions. I know if I ever move back to Toronto or if they expanded outside of Toronto area's towards a smaller city's, I would love to work for them again

Pros

Great staff, they do their very best for their employees, they are kinda people that willing to go for the extra mile

Cons

None

Paragon provides good training

The company is good, but sometimes, it can be a struggle to get a permanent gig. There is some room for advancement, but I don't know where. The management is good, but there is little progress as just guard.

Pros

supportive managment

Cons

few hours and low pay

Part time

Will often give you shifts on the days you specifically say you can not work. Will not specify your kind of work until last minute. Coworkers are amazing

Typical Garbage Contract Security Company

What can I say? Your treated like gold and told the world when hired. However your treated like a number and nothing more with Paragon. The training is decent, however the Management is brutal. Very low standards and professionalism is shown when dealing with issues. Whatever the issue is they will do what is convenient for them. If you need a job its ok, however be aware of empty promises. I would advise any one looking to advance themselves professionally to look elsewhere. Low pay for an company that calls themselves professionals. If high turnover rate, low pay, low moral on sites are what you seek, then Paragon is your company.

Pros

Free Training

Cons

Lack of advancement, low pay, quality of life outside of work
