Sucks the life out of you. Not exciting and people looked down on me. Music and very immature mindsets is what I got when i walked in for the interview. They put me in a residential and commercial building connected as first time concierge. They asked me to take a 12 hour shift on my 2nd day of training. Barely any proper training. They dont care about their employees. I had to ask 3 times about record of employment and paycheck. Better of working security for another company thats cares and wants to see its employees grow.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
No growth or advancement

These people love favouritism. They don’t listen to your complaints or even care. They forcibly ask you to do tasks that are beyond one individual’s capabilities
Pros
Nothing really
Cons
Pretty much everything

A bit of stresses due to the nature of the job, well organized and established organization. Income and benefits coming from this company worth’s the hardships

probably the most unorganised place i have ever worked for, frankly Iam very surprised they are still in businesss because this place is a mess,

i was called almost evry day and every day it was something else.



One of my coworkers once had to work 3 shifts in a row meaning she was at work for over 25hours straight,

i dont think this is even legal!!

In my opinion, they are the most flexible and professional company in the industry, eg you can choose which hours you want to work and/or the site, in addition to that they offer competitive wages which is important
Pros
Networking
Cons
Dealing with irate residents and contractors

I had a ghastly experience with this employer, one I never wish to repeat as I was discharged from one location to another on a weekly basis, often lacking any communication on the reasons. Hours given just to find out this was a tactic to get me to pick up extra shifts as they would be get cut right after I was used for whatever purpose I was needed. They use, lie and cheat you, then expect you to be happy. I wouldn't work here again, even if this was the last security company in Toronto.
Pros
none
Cons
lies, cheating, misleading information.

Great company to work for, lots of opportunities to make money this company also pays more than some of the other security companies out there. And they value their workers.

Routine clocked hours of work with dynamic challenges on occasion that require improvisation dealing with luxury/high end environments to various miscellaneous issues. Allows for improving one's customer service and interpersonal skills. Part time positions are ideal for students.
Pros
Flexible, better pay than competing organisations
Cons
Little to no upward mobility within company

i thought this would be a high end company, the promissed me good wages, nice buildings and a great uniform. everything was really good on paper and during the interview but when i started it became way too much way too quickly. I had an issue with my supervisor because she kept showing up 15 - 20 minutes after the shift time. I complained to the company but was basically told she was not movable and would keep being the supervisor a the building because the residents liked her too much. In addition to that they told her about my complaint and she started picking on me, switching my hours, deleting reports I had completed, complaing to the company until eventually I was moved.

Totally unfair! the site are very nice, some staff are nice but thats about it! also i found out that people who were working less then me were making more money
Pros
good buildings and nice uniform, seems very promising but its not!

Its a different thing every single day. you get to work and then have to go to another location because someone booked off. I have been getting moved all over the place for the last 8 months. very rarely do i get all the hours promissed and have had many pay issue. some taking upto 30 - 60 - 90 days to reslove. unbelievable, but security is a horribly industry.. i dont recommend this to anyone. not like security jobin dubai
Pros

This company has a very good scheduling department. They give you the hours you want and try and place you in a condominium where you are comfortable working. Most of the buildings that have the contract for is a high end and most luxury lifestyle condominiums. The pay is average and good be better but they do pay industry standard. The scheduling department is the best that I have worked with.
Pros
Good hours and flexible scheduling
Cons
Pay is industry standrad very hard to get above $15 per hour

This industry is very prominent due to the ever changing world we live, the job requires a great deal of work and responsibility and the salary is not great. It seems to be a good fit for students or anyone that wants to work until they find a career of choice.
Cons
Low wages and basic benefits and hiring too many individuals that don't really care
