I ran for the hills. Negative work environment getting paid minimum wage while being treated poorly without appreciation or support to staff. Many employees are demoralized which is unfortunate. This is a great place to refer jobs for people you do not like.
I cannot recommend this company to anyone. Management is abusive to their staff and will hold your pay for training shifts, which is illegal. They cost cut so much that it is the guards who suffer in the end. Some of the guards you work with are great people, but unfortunately the poor leadership for this company really destroys it.
Guards are fantastic hard working people at certain sites.
Low pay, no training, lack of uniforms, constant pay issues, too much cost cutting
This company is infamous for hiring terrible management, they have a very high turn over of employees. You won’t make more than minimum wage. You will have new task added on to your job outline constantly without any pay increase. You will be contacted at crazy hours without any care or regard for your personal life circumstances. This company will use you until they find a reason to disregard you for a new lab rat.

This company is not well managed, the owners don't care about giving the employees a good and fair wage, the equipment is poor and not taken care of. They don't provide you with any use of force or criminal code training, they don't care if you tell them about issues with guards or equipment. They don't manage their sites well and hide issues from their clients. Poorly run company with management that only cares about making money for themselves and don't care about giving their clients what they pay for.
Management doesn't care about guards/no benefits
Enjoying my time working, had some issues at the condo I was working and the management backed me up. I realized I had missteped but instead of firing me, they brought me in for additional training and mentoring. Absolutely love it, they real showed they care about there guards.
I would definitely recommend synergy, standard security sites, but a real responsive management team and lots of room for growth. I started at one of the constructions sites in Ottawa. After school Imoved to Toronto and they found a home with good hours within a couple of weeks.
Flexible and reasonable management
Some time residents treat you badly
The site I worked at was an amazing site. Had lots of fun and interacted with a lot of people. Managment at Synergy is a different story, very disorganized and will pay you way less than the client is paying them for your services. The only reason I stayed was to stay at the site. Synergy also loses a lot of sites. No training provided. And they don't pay for anything,won't pay your overtime hours either. Great employees to work with though, all despised of management operations.
Good site (not there anymore)
Low pay, Bad management, No compensation for overtime hours worked
