North Bay Hospital Management is a disaster
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  North Bay, ON12 May 2019
Management is racist and is not aware of their own standard operating procedures. Staff gets disciplined for no fault of theirs. Plus the manager has an inflated ego. Would rather be on welfare than work for them again. Its a MYTH that if you work here its easier to make it to law enforcement.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Every thing

Keep Looking!
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Ajax, ON3 March 2019
High stress, low pay, minimal training that changes with each surprise task thrown your way. Bullying from the Account Manager and her hench-girl straight out of Mean Girls.

Watch your paychecks-they'll be wrong and good luck getting that corrected!

Expect calls just before you leave your shift to stay longer as somebody quit again/didn't show for a shift; days off will be interrupted repeatedly with pleas to fill in. (Not that you'll get acknowledged or rewarded for your sacrifice.)
Pros
It's in the GTA
Cons
Need more space

Just a number. Hired and forgotton
Guard (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON12 February 2019
Underpaid. Under appreciated. They will expect favours from you the employee, ie. Extra shifts with 2 hours notice... and basically bed you to work it. They wont pay you correctly, so watch your paystubs are track your hours.
If your just starting out its ok place to work. If you sre 70+ years old and are bored they will hire you on the spot.
Pros
Hmmm ?
Cons
Low pay. Pay cheques are usually incorrect. You are just a number to Management

Horrid
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Ajax, ON19 September 2018
I recently worked at the Ajax location for a short period of time, while rotating between front desk and gatehouse shifts. Throughout my time here, RSSI has went through many guards however they do not appreciate the guards that remain throughout the problems. The company does not appreciate the people who take shifts and come in all the time. Not worth the time to stay in this company. They complain about different shifts and create uncomfortable work experiences for guards. They truly only care for the client not the guards.
Pros
shifts
Cons
long hours, poor management skills, poor organizational skills

Good company
Security Officer - Full Time (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 June 2018
Its a midsized company so they take care of you. If you have any problems just voice your concern. They arent too flexible about cancelling shifts tho so be careful.

Fun place to work
CONCIERGE/SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 February 2017
Fun place to work, great people to work with, developed great bonds but management is extremely poor. There is a lack of care for the people that work there. We risk out lives everyday of potentially getting shot or stabbed and the pay is very inadequate
