Securiguard
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC3 February 2019
Securiguard there is certainly strong possibility to advance with this company. Wages are not where they should be for some jobs.Working as a supervisor I get very slow response from management on issues I have at my site. Not unusual to wait months for results. It appears their Operation Managers are given portfolios which are too big to take care of their smaller sites effectively. This is important if they are going to grow as a company they need to improve.
Pros
Management slow on assiting supervisors with issues and getting things done
Cons
Wages for some guards are poor

This is a great place to work and very flexible schuedling.
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Kelowna, BC13 January 2019
In this job, I learned how to de-escalate tough situations and be more attentive. Interacting with clients was always a joy and fun part of the job. The hardest part of the job is the hours one ends up working. It can be a real struggle to balance home life and work life.
Pros
Flexible work schuedle
Cons
weird hours

Terrible place to work
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC19 November 2018
Leadership team is not in touch with reality. They care more about the contract then trying to find the underlying cause which is high turnover of staff and low morale and below average pay for what is expected of employees

They try hard but don't get what really matters
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC15 September 2018
A poor leadership team that is disconnected from what is going on in the field. They have people leaving left and right and cannot figure out it is not because it is a bad job, but bad management

If I could rate lower than one star, I would!
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Vancouver BC and area17 July 2018
Unfortunately all security jobs are sub par in terms of wage, job security, career advancement and even just basic human dignity.

This place isn’t any better nor is it any worse than other security companies, unless you work in house or for the actual client yourself.

They pay you little more than minimum wage, but charge the sites you work at more than double!

Sometimes to make up full time hours, they send you all over the place and some sites the commute is so long and far away, or if you’re able to drive, you spend half your wage in gas.

Make this a short term career or for making extra money for summer, school or Christmas, but if you have to actually support a family, then get a student loan and invest in yourself for a better career.
Pros
Good if you are a single person and just need some temp work
Cons
If you have a family, don’t bother. No compassion for your family if an emergency arises.

They pay for your advanced first aid ticket if the site you work at requires it

Simply a work experience
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC2 May 2018
Simply a work experience to fulfill my college requirements. The experience was a bit too shallow as the majority of the shifts were to stand by the front entrance to ensure no books leaves the library without being scanned. The job might provide more duties if I were to be full time.
Pros
More security experience
Cons
Lack of duties

Highly disorganized company
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC2 March 2018
Securiguard bites off more than it can chew and has a company keep track of schedules and pay that is consistently inept. Issues with payroll on a constant basis with very slow response time in correcting said issues. They hire you for a specific type of position then try to coerce you into other positions to fill space.
Pros
Good if doing what was hired to do
Cons
Horrible communication, scheduling, payroll, and salary

Not too bad management, very low pay not worth putting your life on the line, other companies pay a bit better but not much for what the risks are to your own personal well being, get a different career, good fellow employees, they don't feel appreciated,
Pros
None really
Cons
Low pay, no support from Management

So much harassment and toxic culture
Dispatcher/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC9 February 2018
A very toxic culture to work in. I witnessed a lot of harassment and unfair treatment toward female staff, and preferential treatment towards male employees. Very typical sexist environment. It's hidden very well to start, but after a year of working there I've had enough of how awful the management is and how they disregard their legal duty to investigate and create a safe working environment.
Pros
Easy to get hired.
Cons
Toxic environment. Incredibly low wages. Management is incompetent.

Fair Company
Screening Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC8 February 2018
Company is fair and even across the board, nothing to make them somewhere you go out of your way to be, nor somewhere you want to avoid. Opportunities are available if you'd like to pursue them.

Not a good company to work for
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Kamloops, BC27 January 2018
Poor Management. They tend to believe their "pet employees" rather than investigate complaints. Some of the longer term employees I met while working for Securiguard were liars and lied daily to keep their job as they were mostly incompetent and probably could not find another job. Don't work for this company. There are a lot of better ones out there that have better pay and better management.
Pros
Easy to get a part time job
Cons
Incompetent management.
