Place sucks
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON16 juillet 2019
The company doesn’t compensate the Hard working Employees. It lets the Slackers get away with doing nothing and the Hard workers pick up the Slack. Having a Union is the Worst. It Protects the Weak and the Hard workers get SCREWED. Some Managers are Great. The others are Stupid and don’t have any Contact with their Employees.

It was a stressful job.
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Regina, SK7 juillet 2019
You had to deal with different situations and still keep calm. You had to be professional at all times. The bonus was some of the people you got to work with.

Nothing good with the company! The worst security company ever.
Securiy (Ancien employé) –  Fort McMurray, AB4 juillet 2019
Pay wasnt ever as promised. Getting ripped off every pay period. Contracts werent always completed. Never work in the same site/camp always being sent anywhere. Jobs are not stable and getting fired for simple things. Great job for someone who likes to be here one day and another place another day and sometimes there is no work for long periods. Never told in advance when the work is completed. They will come to your room while your sleeping and reating for your nightshift and rudely awaken you and tell you to pack up and go home because job is done. No warnings or nothing. And when you need a ride from work anywhere its the longest wait ever especially just coming off nightshift and your so tired from work.
Points positifs
Depends sometimes. Camps offer free meals and room
Points négatifs
Long hours with pay that was promised but not delivered in the end. No stability

Difficult and unappreciated by employer
Agent de sécurité privé (Ancien employé) –  Chicoutimi, QC4 juillet 2019
Being called at any hour on a multitude of different kinds of contracts without knowing before one gets there what will be asked of oneself.

The hardest part is extreme confrontations with the public in certain circumstances and long hours standing..

Then when working at night, long hours (12 hours) of total isolation. in a completely dark environment with no outside stimulus to keep one awake.

Contracts performed during the day in a sunny setting outside in nature.

Commis - Salle de comptage
Commis B1 (Employé actuel) –  Montréal, QC2 juillet 2019
Ça fait très longtemps que je travaille chez GW, dans la salle de comptage. De l’extérieur, les gens ont l’impression que c’est une compagnie de calibre mondiale, professionnelle, et possédant une culture d’entreprise exemplaire. C’est tout à fait le contraire…manque de vision, incompétence, sécurité inadéquate, supérieur immédiat avec peu de scolarité (donc incapacité de comprendre et gérer du personnel avec humanité et professionnalisme, je pense même qu’il y en une avec un sec 3 seulement). Inflexible, zèle exagéré pour contrôler les pauses et les absences. Le directeur du département est le seul à être compétent, sincère dans ces interactions avec le personnel, et humain…que fait-il encore ici?!

Brève description générale des tâches,
En début de quart, on prépare notre poste de travail, pendant que d’autres employés vont chercher les colis à la voûte. À la réception, les colis sont ouverts, comptés et on confirme que le décompte est bon avec le bordereau du client. L’entrée des données est effectuée. D’autres employés préparent des colis pour approvisionnement des guichets.

Il y a une cafétéria, bien aménagée, machine à café, distributrice, cantine, stationnement 20$ par mois.

Présentement en négociation pour la prochaine convention…(l’offre patronale, une augmentation salariale de 1.75%, cela en dit beaucoup sur le respect)

(Pour les temps plein)
3 types de poste dans le département : Commis B1 - 17.88$/hr B2 - 18.77$/hr B3 - 21.09$/hr (90% des employés sont des B1)
Assurance santé: employeur paye 60%, employé paye 40%
Pension MSPP basé sur un % de votre
  plus... salaire. employeur paye 5%, employé 3%
Syndicat: déduction 2% de votre salaire.

(Pour les temps partiel) *Tout nouvel employé commence comme temps partiel B1, et probablement le restera pour très longtemps*
Salaire: 15.23$/hr
Aucune assurance
Aucune pension
Aucun futur
Heures non garanties, peu importe ce que les ressources humaines vous disent (petit «in», le RH va être sous traité dans pas long, à une compagnie externe, et on tente toujours de nous faire croire que GW est une compagnie mondiale, pathétique!)

En résumé, il y a mieux ailleurs. Au salaire payé aussi bien travailler en restauration rapide.

Colègue très aimable, beaucoup de plaisir mais double forcé
Agent d'intervention (Employé actuel) –  Longueuil, QC2 juillet 2019
Centre jeunesse*

Énormément de temps supplémentaire disponible
Équipe formidable
Aucun avancement de salaire on parle de 25 cents de plus de l'heure pour diriger une équipe...
Quart de 16h forcé sinon considéré comme un abandon de poste.
Beaucoup d'erreurs dans les payes, manque d'heures, promesse de kilométrage payé mais il faut faire beaucoup de téléphone pour être payé.
Les bottes de travailles sont misérables
Le salaire est moyen, les agents du gouvernement gagne 21.50 $ en commencamt et peuvemt augmenter jusqu'à 23$ et plus. Garda est a 19.49$/heure.
Beaucoup de travaille d'équipe, entraide. Plaisir.

The focus is on the money
Agent de transport de valeur (Ancien employé) –  Montréal, QC2 juillet 2019
They do not seem to care about their employees. They will make you do impossible shifts and they have no recognition for your work. They don’t have any values, you are there to make them more money. At the end of the day it’s the only thing that matters to them. Very bad experience working there.
Points positifs
Easy to apply
Points négatifs
Long hours, no recognition

No advancement , no raises
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Fort McMurray, AB26 juin 2019
Worked for Gardaworld for over 6 years. They don’t allow you to take your 2 weeks off if you live in camp and they use loopholes to avoid paying overtime. If you make one small mistake you will be written up and put on notice. Supervisors are good for the most part but some go on a bit of a power trip.

The supervisors could use more training on how to manage staff

No overtime, you’re just a number

Wost Employer
Pre-Board Screening Officer (Employé actuel) –  Edmonton, AB17 juin 2019
Environment sucks. Manager/Management does not have COMPASSION. They micro manage everyone. When you request for accommodation they will DENY it right away. Don't want to work with you with issues and they are good with sweeping under the rag. If you are a woman who wanted to be pregnant while employed to them QUIT! Or just do not apply because they will discriminate. If you want to try for yourself go agead! But how i wish I know this before even applying because it is not worth it.
Points positifs
Decent pay

Long standing hours, micro management, discrimination, gossips

At Gardaworld you are trained to perform your duty when placed on a site efficiently with security and safety. You learn the site post orders and the tools you require to do your job. Management is a professional manner and they are fair. The workp-lace culture is of the client command of agency law. The most important part of the job is punctuality.

GARDA sucks...honestly
Screening Officer (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON11 juin 2019
I worked at Garda for 4 years as a screening officer at Pearson Airport in Toronto. The work environment sucks. Very repetitive, you almost feel like a robot. When its busy time goes by fast, when its slow, you feel like your going to die from standing around not knowing what to do. Your constantly under pressure from GARDA and CATSA. Very micromanaged. Managers push you to the limit so they can receive bonuses at the end of the year. They'll hire anyone to be a manager, and the managers dont last long they drop like flies. GARDA and CATSA always have issues with each other on the correct SOP's (steps of procedure). GARDA will train you to do a function one way, and CATSA will train you a different way. If you do the function incorrect while operations is watching, youll get written up and possibly lose your job depending on the individual and what was done. Managers dont back up the officers, they only care about their job not yours. The job is unionized but they wont hesitate to write you up for nonsense to build a file on you and get you fired. I got fired for another officers mistake on x-ray. You have to bid for your shifts so if your a new hire your pretty much going to get stuck with the AM shifts that nobody wants(3am, 4am, 5am starts) and you'll usually have to work weekends unless you have good seniority. Your stuck with the same shift for months so be prepared. If you call in for work or are late a few times, they'll place you on RAMP which is a program to get rid of employees who dont show up to work. There isn't much room for advancement. If you decide to move up  plus... in the company, you will no longer be unionized. Majority of the officers stay working here due to the company benefits, and the starting pay is $19-$21/hr. Most of your coworkers are miserable adults who will talk bad about you behind your back and wont hesitate to throw you under the bus. With Pearson Airport looking to be privatized in the near future, I believe and hope GARDA and CATSA will be replaced by NAV CANADA. Which may mean many officers will lose their jobs. Oh... and for your hard work for the year, the company will give you a $2 Tim Hortons card, or maybe a candy cane, or a christmas card saying thank you...despite you risking your life everyday.  moins
Points positifs
Unionized, decent pay, meet new people everyday
Points négatifs
Micromanagement, very little pay raise, bad shifts, horrible management

Gardaworld "The best of the worst in the industry"
Driver (Employé actuel) –  Montréal, QC9 juin 2019
I've been working there for 30+years, had experience in almost all departments. Unionized environment. If you're asking why I still work here after reading this...i'm retiring soon.

Typical day: You get to work, pick up your equipment & gun, verify everything is there, look at your stops (realized they overloaded your run again & clients will be mad...again), sometimes you can give the extra stuff to another team (which are probably newbies excited to have some hours), than you pick your favorite truck (if available or if not find one of the few that is still working), go to the vault & bring the bags to your truck, drive to the different stops (clients are usually respectful, cheerful to see you, but also 3/5 of them complain daily about the company's so call client servicing. I usually apologize by saying "sorry ma'am/sir, they're cutting again"). On the upside, If you're quick, you have guarantied hours (only for full timers), meaning the faster you finish the faster you go home with full pay.

Some of the GOOD:
If you're full time "you're in the money". 26.34$/hrs, health insurance, pension plan. You can find some friendly coworkers, lower management, clients. There's a nice cafeteria, many bathrooms, a big changing room with lockers & showers. Parking is 20.00$ per month. You have the responsibility of handling a firearm.

Now for the BAD:
For people thinking of working here know that you'll be part-time for ever...i'll take 20ish years to get a full time, they may promise you 40+hrs but its a lie. Your salary is 37% lower, no insurance, no pension. You'll get
  plus... used by management, asked to do favors, but will forget you once some other newbie comes in. No work/life balance. Night & day shifts in the same week. You'll need a second job for sure, but problem is they want you to be available almost 24/7 or you'll be reprimanded.

Higher management has 0 respect for employees. Some of the lower management tries their best to be friendly, uplifting, respectful with unionized employees , but the companies core culture is one of cuts and incompetence. No investments in personnel, equipment, trucks, IT. Only the short term profit line is important. The cash division of the company is eating itself from inside...

Union is incompetent & lacks backbone. Take 2-3+ years to get a conclusion to a grievance. Too friendly with the employer. Never available when you need them. No transparency.

Hire one batch of criminals to stop another
Security guard (Ancien employé) –  St john's NL4 juin 2019
This place has terrible management that will screw you over horribly no matter how long you've been with the company. My supervisor would full on lie to me at every opportunity and frequently violated basic worker rights and withheld weeks of pay. Do not ever accept a job with this company unless you want to wind up sleeping on a park bench.
