    Pros

    Garda are a huge international mult facet business. So you know they are not going anywhere like Aeroguard.

    Cons

    They are so big they don't take the time to build solid working relationships with thier staff and treat everyone like a number. Management sit in the back office and work with numbers then complain to the staff if they are not hitting the magical metrics that they need to look good. If you ask those Manager's how to change the numbers they will not be able to give any answers that add value.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff that work on the floor and have been doing the job for years. They are going to be able to tell you the areas of improvement required and where things need to get better. The so called management staff that work in the back offices who think they know the best thing for the business do not work on the floor in the actual work environment and do not know what they are doing. Management preach culture and values but do not uphold it or notify staff about what it is.


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

    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.
