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.
Pros
None
Cons
Many

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.
Pros
Guards are fantastic hard working people at certain sites.
Cons
Low pay, no training, lack of uniforms, constant pay issues, too much cost cutting

Great company with strong and friendly leadership team. Some slow work times but I used that to elevate work life balance. Always ready to get you the resources you need to accomplish your task.

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.

Like any other company. Can be long hours and also very low pay. Much better is to get job in labour or some other feild. Not very supportive from management also.

I just started with Synergy. Everythings seems good. Paid training and unfiroms. All scheduling is online and easy to follow. I don’t like the amount of patrol and scans I have to do but I may ask to switch sites
Pros
good supervisors
Cons
to many patrols

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.
Pros
Steady Hours
Cons
Management doesn't care about guards/no benefits

I really enjoyed the work environment. The Manager in the Ottawa region is extremely hard working but suffers from spreading himself too thin. The pay is often only minimum wage.

I work for this company more than a year and it was the biggest mistake of my life. They treat you like a slave. The word "dignity" has lost its meaning with this company long time ago.

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.
Pros
Flexible and reasonable management
Cons
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.
Pros
Good site (not there anymore)
Cons
Low pay, Bad management, No compensation for overtime hours worked
