It was ok for a transition job

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
It was ok for a transition job. As a newbie you get the shifts nobody wants. Difficult as you encounter unruly, frustrated passengers who feel that they are above every one else.

Toxic environment

Management and Human Resources are awful. Good luck getting any help. The Union is also very incompetent. There are good people working there but the majority is horrible.

Micromanagement, dealing with the public, unsupportive managers, favoritism, have to get someone to cover you to go for break or punch out, gossipy work environment.

Terrible company to work for that underpay and will take advantage of their workers. They will double book shifts without coverage and leave one worker to do a 16hr shift

Uncertainty in this company

Being the worlds largest private security firm, it should but has no room for moving up. They hire inexperienced staff for field work so they can pay the lower hourly wage levels then majority of the time, hire externally for management. Even management has been seen to come and go like a revolving door.

Points positifs

Works with staff availability

Points négatifs

Minimum wages, no/minimal opportunity

Unhealthy work environment - fast paced

I would not recommend this job to anyone. The environment is unhealthy, there is no work-life balance, you're babysitting grown folk, you're underpaid for all that you're required to do, and the management is toxic. Everyone talks about each other and some managers power-trip. Screening officers threaten managers with calling the union and they have no respect towards the managers. They hire young people who have no care about the job and then there is the older folk who are limited in what they can do. You're expected to do things with limited resources and no answer is acceptable to them. It is all about numbers and money, the officers take a backseat as long as things are moving. I would say, use it for experience but don't stay in it for too long.

Points négatifs

Long hours, babysitting

Active and fast paced.

Imagine going to an airport to travel but never actually traveling. The place is a mostly clean and well lit environment. High stress depending on the position, definitely fast paced during rush peaks. Mostly stressful right after training but once the repetitiveness kicks in it's just that...should be better paid but to the company they seem to see it as a labor job, so why pay more for repetitive labor.

Short staffed, underpaid

Short staffed, underpaid, gardaworld has rude HR reps that don't care about you, union doesn't care either. Pay wasn't bad back in the day but they never raised it in 5 years even though minimum wage increased

No Real Upside to Working Here.

I started my journey at GardaWorld as a Tactical Scheduler a few years ago. I really liked the job! It paid the bills, and my coworkers, and managers were super friendly! I moved to Portfolio Scheduler about a year after joining based off of my work performance. I still quite frankly liked the position, however sadly that is where all the positives end. The turn over rate is beyond bonkers, and managing OT for that is near impossible. You are dealing with clients, internal staff, managers, administrative work; entering coverages, keeping track of staff pay rates, bill rates, payroll, pay complaints, tracking opens, new hires, training, attendance of all staff under your portfolio all while providing excellent customer service ON TOP of all the never ending coverages, and opens, and you are blamed for anything that goes wrong as a portfolio scheduler. You can be an overachiever, a hard worker, dedicated to your role and it will not be noticed. Everyone is looking out for themselves, and you will be left with nothing but stress, anxiety, and the feeling of toxicity among the workplace. You will be hired most likely at a higher rate than loyal employees who have been there for years (hence no visible pay rate- they gotta hide it from the current staff just in case they look it up; not that the money you will get for the workload with equal the pay. Seniority. Does. Not. Matter.), and that might seem like a great offer but you’ll end up in the same boat in about two years. During my time there, after my initial switch in roles, for the next three years we were given no raises, however -

Pay is a joke. Management no help too much politics. Coworkers are not helpful pay is a mess Just look for another job and you’ll be fine. Get out of security

Great work environment

Great flexible workplace environment with ability to switch shifts with multiple employees when needed. Unionized position that allows access to advocates for many workplace concerns.

May be good for fresher

Minimum wages with all day long standing job. No support at all from seniors. Hours were not stable for me and when I complaint about it they said you can leave the position.

Great place to work and very flexible

One of the best jobs to work at Pearson International Airport with great benefits and opportunities to advance beyond screening and security. Highly recommend if you are looking to work at the Airport

Points positifs


Points négatifs

No weekends off as the Airport is 24/7 operation

As a security guard in a bank I found the work quite boring. Did not always receive a relief guard and sometimes could not take lunch. Difficult to get into contact with management.

Overall come to work knowing you’re there to work not thinking you’re there to “look cool” wearing a gun. It’s a place for grownups not whiners that still live at home with mom and dad.

Good for casual if it’s your only part time job and you’re fully flexible in when you can work.

Full time means nights. Positions based on seniority. Lots of hours available for casual but that can change at anytime. Good for people needing a couple years job history for applying to be a LEO or for older folks wanting long-term casual. The job itself is fun if you enjoy being on the road, no boss over your shoulder.

No fun

I hate this company. They think about money money money. They don’t care if you’re overworked. The process for training is long and they will hit you hard if you fail. It took me 5 weeks before I got called for training. People in HR are very unfair too, not all though mostly.

Constant turn over with false promises of full time employment

Constantly hiring new people while the full time layoff point is well past 15 years seniority. Senior management is very confrontational and takes a fire first and sort it out later approach
