Do not work here

This is not a government job with a government pension and a stable salary. You work for a crown corporation managed by a security company. You are a security guard! You get no federal pension. You get bad hours of work and zero evening/night bonus. Turnover rate is higher than a mcdonalds! Zero advantages, z - e - r - o!Dont work here!

Pros

colleagues

Cons

no evening bonus, no night bonus, some employees are more equal than others, no advantages, high turnover rate

Amazing team

Helped me enhance my knowledge and skills. Have an amazing group of people in the team who encourage and help in overall development. Great place to work.

Boring

Role is not satisfying. Most of the time you are stationed at one location either sitting or standing. Job can become boring really fast and would not recommend to anyone who has a slight interest in law enforcement. Advice: look for a security guard role where you actually have tasks to complete.

Ok as a temporary job while waiting for a better opportunity

It was not a good environment to work in! Staff were resentful and other than medical ins. there were no other benefits. Pay rate wasn't enough to survive on!I would not recommend this company to any other person!

Pros

Nil

Cons

Long hours and rotating shifts.

Lousy place to work

Dog walkers earn more per hour with less training. Treatment of employees is decent but average for most security companies.The hours are OK but they pay NO NIGHT PREMIUMS,NO PREMEUMS FOR BILINGUALS,NO PREMIUMS FOR HIGH RISK WORK. All in all, I suggest taking up a career as a professional dog walker.

Good work environment, some days can be stressful.

Working as security officer is a challenging task. But with wise decisions your day can go smooth. Plenty of open shifts to pick until you are assigned a full time job site.

Co workers are great, HR and Upper management skim $ off of pay stubs

They advertise a certain hourly pay, and when you are hired on its entirely different. Scum of the earth company to work for. They don't tell you about training wage in your interview so prepared to be surprised when it is not what they advertise. Be prepared to check every single one for your pay stubs and make sure you cant your hours, ESPECIALLY OVERTIME because HR will not include it if you don't remind them. They take forever to respond to emails regarding concern and if you request time off are extremely reluctant to give you any, unless you find people to cover for. Basically HR is just a job title here and guards are there to their jobs for them. They advertise themselves as the largest and most profitable security company in the world except they do not compensate their employees at all.

Pros

none

Cons

Long hours, terrible schedule, HR is a joke and you have to do their job for them

Just ok

I got lucky with securitas and got a full time contract right away in a good location and got promoted to supervisor within 6 months. Overall I like my job but I’m not paid enough for being a supervisor and all the extra tasks I need to be doing compared to a regular agent. I’ve met a lot of different people who came as replacement on my contract when needed and a lot of them mentioned working for securitas for years and still not having a full time contract and they have to be on call which is not ideal for most people. We supposedly have insurance yet after being with securitas for over a year I’ve never been able to get answers from anyone how to use it. Overall good job depending on the contract you get assigned to but not everyone seems to be lucky as I was.

Pros

Paid 45 mins break

Horrible company

They are one of the worst companies to work for, management was horrible, the pay was garbage, the hours were horribly long as well with the stupidest procedures.

Misleading

Written Job description is much different than the actual job on-site. Be prepared to be surprised. Not much of a chance to move up, and management disorganized.

Pros

Quick to get job

Cons

Lies

Poor management

Toxic environment to work in. Will give you stress and anxiety all the time. Needs a better manager and a supervisor. Its all about power tripping and micro management.

Air of team players , individual when needed.

It was a learning experience day to day .Always different people, situations n coworkers. Most pleasant helpful and welcoming . Not a lot of computer training as each site has different paperwork . Clarity on procedure when emergency happens! .
