I worked at GardaWorld full-time (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 Management

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

    I worked at GardaWorld full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent and the guys I worked with were good as well. You get a fair amount of vacation time as well.

    Cons

    The trucks are constantly in horrible condition and held together by rust and sadness. With no ventilation you rely on the heat and air conditioning and most of the time neither worked when you wanted it to. The only way you got the air fixed every summer was by calling OHSA. We even had a guy pass out behind the steering wheel from heat exhaustion. Also, you will find they are about as disorganized as humanly possible and will blame you for their problems.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the trucks, treat the workers better and you'll have a much smaller revolving door.

    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.
