I have been working at Garda World Security

Pros

Garda offers various positions in various locations.
Friendly staff.
Understanding team.

Cons

No chances for advancement.
Sites require no specialties or training.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More opportunities should be available for advancement within the company.
There is little motivation at many sites to want to excel towards something.
In comparison to Paladin Security Garda lacks structure, organization and opportunities for the future. Part-time employment is all Garda is for many.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Dispatch 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 ManagementAdvice

    Have 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 !!!!

    Doesn't Recommend
