Many opportunities and flexible schedules
Lead Guard (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 August 2018
Work with a steady Schedule 8 hours 5 days a week is as good as you'll want it to get.

Be aware of how much you're being paid on what's expected and required of you regarding post duties.

Always know what you're getting paid at sites and keep an eye on your pay.

Managment can be really hard to deal with resulting in a lack of respect and dedication to its employees.

You always meet and work with good guards from time to time with a varied number of different sites as an opportunity to choose from.

The hardest part is getting a decent steady schedule with respectable pay and having to deal with Managment and Union when issues of pay and work arise.

Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Saint John, NB25 July 2018
I was security guard at the mall. Had to work by myself. All I had to do was walk around and ensure that nothing untoward took place. The mall was a secure place so nothing ever happened

Bad
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS5 May 2018
Securitas was the worst security company to work for, they constantly messed up pay checks, they picked favorites to give overtime to while other guards struggled to get hours and they were known for several labour violations.

Review
Guard/Secure Facility (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON31 March 2018
A typical day at work I'm securing on site proper varies from food product to securing buildings that are under construction & weddings & other outside events.These places that are given to me on a daily basic requires full attention to details,proper communicating with customers and experience working with Microsoft word office. on a enjoyable day I'm more outside securing events that I'm scheduled for that way there's more communication in between events planner & guard on duty.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
$14 hrs

Will easily hire you but the job locations aren't that great

Pros
Paid Breaks
