Security Guard Supervisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 December 2017
If you are willing to waste time and go nowhere in life this is the job for you. This is a job that is best for students, new immigrants and old people (or some combination of the three). Just beware that security experience isn't actually something that people respect. Just working here will tell you why,there are lots of people who don't know what they are doing, blatant favoritism and stupidity all around. Most of the competent guards have either quit or have been fired, or like me are slowly being pushed out and realizing what a massive waste of time this job has been.Don't ask me why I've been here so long, its an easy job to get complacent in. That is, until they start trying to take advantage of you. In some ways, I'm actually grateful for the wake-up call. Now I'm ready to go.
lots of hours, easy work (at the right site)
bad management, low pay, won't let you take sick days or holiday, high turnover rates, hard work (at some sites)
MOBILE SECURITY GUARD (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 29 November 2017
one of my first real jobs ever. This mobile position gave me the opportunity to be responsible and detailed oriented. This job tought me so much responsibility and gave me a great sense of pride. I would do it again.I enjoyed travelling around my patrol area, helping my teammates, getting the job done and being professional. Securitas was so good to me.
Ability to work in all evironments. perimeter and interior patrols. alarm response.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 2 October 2017
Securitas was my co-op placement which became a part time job. I enjoyed working with my team members. Did not get to know the office workers as much because I only had one placement and had a supervisor to deal with on daily basis.
poor salary, good benefits, good for first time job in security
Replacement supervisor (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 29 June 2017
It is a good opportunity to gain valuable wxperience. The biggest downside to this job is the salary. Not very competitive. Depending on the sites you will work on you may have some great benefits though so it makes up for it. Overall a good place to start ones career in security.
Agent de Sécurité (Former Employee) – Laval, QC – 29 May 2017
Les superviseurs ne démontrent pas l'exemple, retards non motivés, décisions douteuses, excuses non valables. Malgré cela le travail en lui-meme était bien mais l'avancement vers un meilleur poste se fait dur.
Security Guard (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 17 May 2017
Many opportunities to gain knowledge and experience. The longer you are on board with Securitas the more work opportunities you will get. The people that give you calls are easy to talk to and very helpful
Steacy Adams, Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 1 May 2017
I worked for the traffic control branch of this company,which is no longer in existence (to my knowledge). I can't really say much about the company as a whole, as we were subcontracted to NB power, and for all intents and purposes, worked for them. I had a supervisor from Securitas that I kept in contact with, and they were really nice, but for the most part, didn't have to do much with regards to our division. Was a nice summer job, unfortunately no longer available.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – London, ON – 26 April 2017
.A lot of what you got out of this company came from how long you were there, seniority did matter. I recieved my only stable placement there after being with the company for a few months and spent most of my time with the company at the London Life Call Centre.
Sometimes you'll need a part time job between contracts.
