I have been working at Garda World Security full-time for less than a year

Pros

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

Cons

This 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 ManagementAdvice

Work on your communication with your employee's PLEASE!!!!

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

    I worked at Garda World Security full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Garda World Security

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
