Loved the work, but management was under-trained and focused on negative instead of positive training methods.

Pros

Great place to help people get on a plane with less stress, and flexible hours. Good training, but anal retentive managers in some locations.

Cons

Poor hiring practices for managing positions...seniority is only prerequisite for advancement.

Advice to Management

Less manipulation more cooperation...too much testing without trying to help employees really grow.

    Pros

    A reasonable balance between work rotations, conditions of work average for the industry.
    Administrative issues usually resolved quickly.

    Cons

    Not quite fully established with the correct positions / understanding for the high threat division.
    Regular problems with equipment supply and cost cutting due to company bid policy

    Advice to Management

    Correctly establish the high threat division and listen to much of the advice given by those put in management positions. Centralising all decision making only leads to problems, there is little point appointing managers or supervisors when they are not allowed to make decisions, this is reflected in the attitude of those further down the line toward the company.

  2. Basic - Almost like factory work

    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 Management

    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.
