management Works with employees at very hard times

The people that you meet and the company output is amazing. When you're at the job site, With the uniform on, you just feel like you need to help people.

Good place to work

Good place to work if you find a fixed site. Better pay than similar security companies. Sometimes they mess up scheduling if you don't have a fixed site, so double-check them yourself.

A chop shop security company that does not care for their employees

What is the best part of working at the company?Stay away, company will write you up for non-infractions or terminate employment based off heresy/no investigation taking place What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Constant fear of disciplinary action from management and a true lack of leadership from any management members What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Most co-workers are great to work with. Management doesn’t care about employees. Garda is a chop shop security company that will not train you properly for your role thereby putting you at risk of legal consequences What is a typical day like for you at the company?Long hours as shifts are usually 12 hours long. Quite often you will not be able to take a proper break as you will usually be working by yourself and not allowed to leave post or be written up

Very Professional Management and Employees

GardaWorld name is enough. Smart and hardworking people in management. Everyone is doing his/her work very professionally. Best opportunity for me so far in my 3 years experience working with this well known name in security industry. It is my pleasure that am working with GardaWorld.

Not that bad

Ok company overall. Its contract security which can make things a little difficult at times due to lack of good trainable staff and hr support. Benefits are so so.

Stay away

They claim to promote within but that's only for the people they like if you don't fit into there click you won't get promoted. Some accounts manager are ok others watch out for. If you don't want to advance and be treated poorly this is the place for you if not I would strongly suggest staying away.

Not consistent, changes constantly

Your schedule can change in a dime. The managers can’t do anything as they’re not union. Trying to stay consistent is difficult as things change constantly. It’s partly the nature of the job and atmosphere but also the lack of leadership from upper management. Be aware that coming into work, doing your job, going home, isn’t typically how it goes.

Points positifs

No overtime

Points négatifs

No consistent management

Uncaring behemoth of a company to work for.

The company is huge, and you feel it every day. Expect to be treated with minimal respect, lied to often, and expected to be switched on and ready for anything at all times. All the work of being a police officer with none of the training, half of the compensation, and little to no expectation of job stability unless you find yourself with a rare breed of supervisor willing to stick their neck out for you. Management is extremely hands-off, and will only ever deign to speak with you after you've done something wrong. Long, grueling shifts with the occasional random check to see if you're paying attention from the mobile guards, who are stretched so thin they hardly have enough time to finish all of their needed checks in a shift.

Points positifs

Easy to get a job here, many amazing people working

Points négatifs

Management are openly hostile at worst, and simply uncaring at best, Long hours, pay is barely above minimum wage, and you are treated as an easily replaceable body like a sword of damocles hanging over your head

Poor management

Sometimes they ask to extend shift with a very short notice when you're not prepared. Delayed or no replies to your emails. No vacations prior to completing one year.

Good Company

GardaWorld is very similar to most private security companies, very money and results driven....but what company isnt. Management team could use more people for the workload but they do try their best for what they have. Friendly people just trying to make it through the day

Good place for work

GW is a great company to work for. I put emphasis on work. However, it's not a place to make a career. While I was treated good, I witnessed others that weren't as blessed as I was. I was brought in via head hunted. If you're not part of the "in crowd", advancement is rare. Even though I liked it there, the nepotism I witnessed was disheartening. A lot of promising young professionals took their talents elsewhere after they were looked over for a person that did not have pedigree. Please note that I was an account manager and carry two degrees; I cut my teeth and did my time to get this position. Overall, I found this place to be great for work and life balance. The salary is mediocre just enough to get you by.

Points positifs

Management always available, great team atmosphere

Points négatifs

Always on call, nepotism and local HR (S.W is the initials of said HR person) is very unprofessional, angry and a tad bit bigoted

Easy Work and Pay

Working here was great. I really enjoyed working with MOST of the people here. The work itself isn't hard but there is a lot of oversight from management. You're constantly being watched. You could pickup shifts and make good money if you wanted to grind. There is a bit of politics between the union, management and staff. Overall though, there were good people that looked out for you and were nice to work with. I left because of a higher paying job. Some bigs cons i noticed were mostly from the coworkers. Either very rude and backstabbing or completely lazy and unprofessional. Lots of rumour spreading and people who complain although i can see some of those rumours being true.
