    Dissatisfied

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe training was better than many of the other security companies I have worked for. Staff are unionized so we have some benefits. Pay is consistent with competitors.

    ConsCompany will hire the wrong people and reject people with experience. Mostly will hire people that come through their training academy. Raises are non existent and company ignores employee safety (other than lip service). Sites are persistently understaffed with no backup plan so taking time off is near impossible. Employees receive a letter at Christmas time every year that time off will not be allowed until after New Years due to understaffing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave stricter hiring criteria and pay to reflect that. Check on the safety of your sites. Let your regular full time employees occasionally enjoy holidays with their families.

    Federal Contract Security.

    Security Guard (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsAll uniforms and equipment including firearm provided. Work for the most part is pretty steady. Pay is better than traditional security.

    ConsVery weak benefit package. Management not receptive to the needs of officers on post. Discipline very harsh for minor rule infractions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication news d.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

    Prosmanagemnt, hr people, and trainers are great. you are treated very good, and respectfully. must better than my last company where was treated like a number. wages good after probation, free training corses, medical/dental benefits, paid sick days

    Advice to Senior Managementraise pay rates at entry level, although a nice increase is given after probation (and my site has a yearly increase), entry level starting rate is not great

    Wage of my time

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

    Pros-lots of additional training at the beginning

    Cons-I've been working on call for over 2 weeks now, I have yet to work. When I ask for work I am just brushed off by management.
    -They hire too many people 30+ hires a week but only 10 or so jobs available. Good luck gaining experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter hiring process, too much bloat in the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Security Officer

    Security Officer (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsIf your a floater, you get a variety of sites and it's really freshing. Pay is determent on your location, role and responsibilities.

    Consas with most security jobs, you may be required to work any time during the day so throws off sleeping cycle. pay isnt that great, but definately great for students or seniors looking to maintain a steady cash flow.

    Advice to Senior Managementoffer some compteitive pay

    What a bad company

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

    ProsThere are some nice people working here but they are out numbered by the crappy ones and have become zombies to keep there jobs and a pay cheque

    Consonly keep employees that are willing to be zombies
    dont think for yourself or you get let go
    if the owner knew how bad his csm's treated the employees he would have a fit
    keep there contracts by gifting to the people that are in charge of awarding the contracts

    Advice to Senior Managementlearn how to deal with people

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
