    Shouldn't be in business, such a joke

    Security Guard (Former Employee)
    Windsor, ON (Canada)

    ProsCant think of any, non zip..

    ConsTell you your going top get full time, then bring in more pt employee's to make sure you don't get full time, which means no benefits, 6 months, one pair of pants , one shirt, how's that for being professional, The only reason I give you one star, is because they don't have any more lower options, or you would get a minus , Garda doesnt want to send me my last check, its been a month now , and still haven't received it, going to the labour board very soon. If you want to be used to the fullest extent , try this place,, good luck you'll need it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet one, you sit in your office all day , why don't you visit your sites, and show some kind of leadership, again what a joke of a company...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very Unprofessional Recruiters!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Calgary, AB (Canada)

    ProsNothing really, other than the location and free parking

    ConsRecruiters are very unprofessional, ask questions very irrelevant to position.
    Compensation offered well below market rate!

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people with experience to work on your Recruitment so that you can get best quality candidates hired.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Co-workers from other companies warned me about Garda, they were right!!!!

    Security Guard (Current Employee)
    Barrie, ON (Canada)

    ProsThe ONLY reason that I'm still here is the fact that it's full time and convient to my residence!

    ConsThis company does not show any interest in their employee's and even try to leave you stranded at the job site for extra hours, without your knowledge!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on your communication with your employee's PLEASE!!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Disgusted

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsBenefit package from local union, and that's with NO help from Garda

    ConsDispatch officers are RUDE, well more like IGNORANT
    Management does NOT address issues in a timely matter
    Schedulers are NOT on top of things, they complain about your vacations, like I'm NOT suppose to take them.....DUH,,, you take yours, don't you !!!??!!!!
    The provide little if ANY of your Union information, they don't want to see you informed..
    I have NEVER disliked a job or company in my WHOLE entire life, that in it;s self is SAD
    The Human Resource employers are actually VERY immature and silly and BULLIES !!!
    Garda says they will give you proper training, more like NOT, I worked at a job for 3 hours and they left me on my own in a condominium, DOWNToWN TORONTO, on a FRIDAY night.. HELLLOO !!

    My overall impression of GARDA is this:

    I would rather be jobless..!!!!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave your Head Office and Over night staff, take a lesson is in importance, respect and compassion. They are the MOST rude people I have EVER dealt with, EVER !!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Stay away from this company, horrible treatment of employees.

    Security Guard (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsHonestly i can't think of any? they treat you like crap, and expect way to much for what they pay!

    ConsYou can never get a day off from dispatch, they will wine, complain and threaten with loss of employment if you dare ask. Going above dispatch doesn't help either, no one cares, your only a number to them and that number is disposable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart treating your employees with respect they deserve. Reorganize the company structure so lower employees are treated with respect and replace dispatch with people who like what they do!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
