You just stand there. 4 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours pick your poison. You like the Raptors? Watch their farm team, or not, get put at some wall to face. Better than factory work for sure.
Pros
No one cares
Cons
No one cares

I’ve been working with this company for a while now been a a year or more .and the work load in the Summer amazing. But in the winter they dramatically slow so that means not a lot of pay .some of the supervisors are are amazing , and some feel like the world revolves around them which was annoying. On to the owner now he doesn’t know how to speak to people with respect.

If you are someone who suits up...shows up and does their job , to the bes,t of their abilities, then you will be treated fairly, and learn skills that will help you in the future (ie supervise, customer relations, establishing a commanding presence)

I worked for one shift and already do not like it, I was put in a vehicle with a very disgusting person who proceeded to do drugs with me in the car and then said if you tell anyone I’ll make your experience in the company hel, and I was promised full time hours but only get 4 hour shifts and just got fired because I can only do Tuesday to Thursday now.
Pros
Free games and concerts
Cons
Bad team members and bad management

Job Culture: Mostly fine co-workers, a few too many talking about getting high, pretty sure a few were high while at work. Management: What a joke, they don't know how to schedule for the life of them and get upset when you can't do a shift with only 12 hours notice. Regularly sent to the wrong location or had too many guards scheduled for a location. Job Security/Advancement: There is none, don't bother. Salary/Benefits: No benefits, salary is just ever so slightly above minimum wage, they make you buy your own uniform. Job Work/Life Balance: There is no balance, get ready to be all over the place, doing 10+ hour shifts on a moments notice. They treat you like you are on call but don't pay you as an on call employee. I got terminated because I didn't answer my phone at 9 pm. I don't care who it is, I am not picking up my phone when I am getting ready for bed.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Long hours, little pay, no respect

show up to a post and stay for a couple hours. You document your own hours and send it to whatever email they want you to send it to so make sure you keep track of all your hours.

Unless you are a fan of being treated like nothing, and paid MINIMUM, then this is the place for you. I worked 2 weeks for this company before I had enough of the missing pay, the bad management, and garbage work life this company offers. A lot of the people who work for this company will say the same, but honestly at the end of the day, if you're desperate for money, then the choice is all yours.
Pros
none
Cons
everything

Each day is never the same due to the rotation of different work venues and the type of event that we work. I have learnt how to difuse conflicts, apply reasonable use of force and interact with different ethnic groups.
Pros
Enjoyable working environment
Cons
Not much room for growth

If you like a fast paced, high pressure edge of your seat work environment then Securtrust is definitely a company to consider. Between the concerts, music festivals and other exciting events around the city, Securtrust is a company for people who like the thrill and adrenaline rush that only the event industry can provide.
Pros
Free concerts and good staff
Cons
long hours, standing, may be too noisy for some

A day on the job is simple, you will be working for events happening around Toronto securing any areas that doesn't allow public access and providing security to necessary posts you are placed in. You can be working hours up to 10-12 hours a day and will be standing for most of the time. Payment is $12.00 and after speaking with some people their pay has not went up, so I am assuming that, that is the payment they will be giving you the entire time you will be working there.
Cons
Long Hours

A typical day at this job can go from standing around doing asset protection and perimeter watch, to roaming at a festival breaking up fights, ejecting intoxicated individuals, and bringing people to emergency medical services. Then the next day you could be checking accreditation at a security checkpoint. Management could be a little more organized and the shifts could not only be more consistent; but also be given out a little bit earlier. The people there are a great group of people to work with. The hardest part of the job for me is taking people to emergency medical services, especially the kids that attend the festivals. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is hard to choose. The concerts are great, the moments where you get thanked for being good at what you do by not only the client, but sometimes the patrons as well. All in all though, it would have to be the public relations work that you get to do.
Pros
The jobs you get to work are just amazing; the concerts, the festival, all of them. Also, every so often, if you`re good at what you do; the venue might hook you up with a free concert every now and again.
Cons
The hours are all over place, and given out with very little heads up causing you to cancel plans such as social gatherings, family arrangements, and even doctors appointments.

Securtrust is a little different from most security companies in that it is quite informal in structure. You get notified about shifts via text message and/or phone call and/or on the spot before starting a shift. The management is a bit disorganized, and if you are a stickler for perfect order then don't apply. Coworkers are fun and laid back for the most part, but take their jobs seriously and you will be noted by both your teammates and management if you don't perform well on the job. Lots of flexibility if you are good, you will be given a hassle for any favours you ask for if you aren't good.
Pros
flexible scheduling, lots of hours available, casual atmosphere between coworkers, strict yet reasonable management
Cons
unpredictability regarding how much work available when, minor infractions could be punished severely at discretion of management
