Loss Prevention Agent (Ancien employé) – Toronto, ON – 20 octobre 2017
Long hours, boring work, great for people who have no life or family to attend to. A good job if you just want to sit around and do nothing and get paid minimal amounts of money for minimal amounts of work.
Paid to sleep becuase the jobs are Secluded lonely and boring
fun workplace, although serious job and must stay focused, overall great job experience

Mobile Operations Manager (Ancien employé) – London, ON – 18 octobre 2017
Able to move up quickly through supervisory positions. Enjoyed the variety in the job and the freedom to work at your own speed. Company vehicles sucked at the time but seem to have improved since then.
Without going deep into details, I can say that GardaWorld is a good place where a security guard should work. I come to this conclusion because of the management, the team, the benefits, the way the work is conducted and many other things.
Gardien de sécurité (Ancien employé) – Montréal, QC – 13 octobre 2017
J'ai travaillé a la paie ou les dizaines de filles employées sont toutes des roumaines ou de l'est et on peur de parler de l'ambiance horrible qu'il y a dans ce service. J'ai parlé, je pensais en toute confidentialité, aux ressources humaines d'un problème, qui sont allés le répéter au responsable de la paie et ont licenciés la personne sans vrai motifs Aucun respect des employés

Security Guard and Security Concierge (Ancien employé) – Toronto, ON – 21 septembre 2017
Everything! The people are all super nice and friendly, probably because we are all treated with respect. Really relaxed, family style atmosphere but doesn't stop your ability to work like some places. Great benefits and snacks/drinks provided. Management really take the time to talk to everyone and listen to opinions. Training budget is great and you are encouraged to use it.
A good opertunity for those who like a challenge... not so much for those who enjoy their sanity...
Rather not say (Employé actuel) – Ontario – 19 septembre 2017
Working on a site that was acquired by GardaWorld meant trying to integrate the new company mentality/approach with the old company ideology to service delivery. There have been many struggles along the way and there has been a lack of support from the upper management team in delivering on our clients basic expectations. At a site level we often struggle to meet the basic expectations of the client, as there is little support from the scheduling department when regular and special coverage shifts go unstaffed. Often times when shifts run open the work is then reallocated to patrol staff on site. This leads to a reduced quality in scheduled duties, and increases the stress on Patrol Guards (who often have to forgo their full breaks to accommodate the increased work), Dispatchers and Supervisors who are expected to figure out how to run a shift with multiple extra coverage or even core coverage shifts open, accommodate breaks for fixed positioned staff and respond to unforeseen circumstances and emergencies, and then come back in 8, 12 or 16 hours and do it all over again and again. When guards are assigned for shifts from the scheduling pool they often arrive unequiped for their duty, lacking basic uniform items, claiming they were never issued them from the uniform department. GardaWorld management seems to come up with excuses or band-aid solutions rather than addressing head on the issues that they are faced with. There is also an apparent mentality that it is better to run a shift open than to incur overtime. This only exacerbates a downward spiral in staff turnover, lowplus... employee morale and the reduced deliverable of performance to the client. GardaWorld is trying to be a high end restaurant while training and paying employees at drive-in resuarant expectations and rates. If the company doesn't come to terms with its shortcomings and find a way to change it's course, I expect they will lose many major contracts in the coming months and years.moins
A challenging work environment, for those who are willing to step up to unpredictability on every shift

Very negative place to work. Your movements are watched and you are judged always. The stress level in this place is toxic! Your breaks are never on time and you have to wait if you asked to go to the washroom. Everything is put on the screeners shoulders and management is never accountable for anything!
