    I have seen worse, But so far the best

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

    ProsThe entry wage is pretty fair to be honest, they don't let you play out of your league and it is a very strict customer service oriented sites, unless if you are working downtown which is a very unique environment for each and every site. But they don't force you to do something you cannot handle.

    ConsI don't really see my self advancing to higher positions in this company, the more advance positions (such as mobile and screening) in this company need long term dedication with not half decent pay and a lot of work load. It is really a shame, when you realize you will jump aboard to other companies that are offering more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am fairly aware of the contract competition, but I would just like to say, It is a job, and not very much a career, the money is what most of the people are in here for.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsManagement is actually involved and cares what employees thing.

    ConsSome site are not suited for any guard and some people you work with are not theft good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemove the poor performers so the rest of us who do hard work can be seen.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
