It was ok for a transition job

Avis en vedette

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.

If you are bored and want at flexible schedule. OTHERWISE STAY AWAY

Management sucks, they play favourites. Lots of people are lazy and do not want to work so they make you do it. They mess up your pay a lot so watch out for that. If you like to be micromanaged then apply.

Points positifs

easy to give away shifts and you get paid to do nothing most of the time

Points négatifs

Everything

Only join if you are ABSOLUTELY desperate.

When I joined, it seemed like there is room to grow but now I see that people leave after a couple of months since the amount of drama you have to deal with. 10 hour shifts and a lot of paper work. No breaks for managers. You take small breaks whenever you get time to breath. I along with many others have to stay back after a 10 hour shift, just to finish updating the system and finish the paperwork. Further, there is no overtime for managers. People are more happy when they are leaving the company then joining. The training is also demotivating since our peers are also trying to leave the company. When you join, keep looking for other jobs. When you find something better, leave! Worst part is that there no break room to leave our food. No choice but to buy food from the restaurant and eat on the spot. Therefore no savings.

Points positifs

Some co-workers are nice

Points négatifs

Overworked, Have to pay for parking, under paid for the work required

Stressful/ harrassment/abusive

Security Guards jobs can be excellent, however, when you have upper management that doesn't know what they are doing and is not held accountable for their actions, one left feeling that their service is productive. Also be careful that you do not asked for anything to improve your work and never excercise or points out the rules or policies of the company because if you do, you become a target.

Points positifs

Gift card on Christmas

Points négatifs

No breaks, over work, low pay, no one in upper management respect you or your time, Union works for the company, not the employees

average company

Average security company. Not the best but not the worst. Good benefits plan. Management can be more helpful to employees. They should treat their senior guards specially who has been there for more than 10 years with special treatment. Value their employees as important person to the company and not just a number to them. Compensate for ideal employees who works nights shift or dangerously complicated sites. Compensate for more duties more pay increase. More job duties ewuals more pay. Increase and stay true to the contract of 6-12 months increase on pay.

Points positifs

good benefit plan

Points négatifs

employee rights

Good place to get experience

GardaWorld Aviation is a good place to get experience but it is not a health environment for managers to develop their careers. There is a lot of favoritism that occurs when new positions open up. Normally, in GardaWorld Aviation when a position opens, Senior Managers (GMs) have already picked who they want in that role. Most of the time, it bites them in the BUTT but they never learn from it.

Points positifs

Most of the employees are great to get along with

Points négatifs

To much favoritism, very unlikely of you moving up in the company

You'll hate being an Armed Guard

I was hired at the Mississauga branch as a casual hire, and what a waste of time it was working here for 6 months of my life. The entire facility is unmaintained and extremely dirty, the amount of black dust everywhere is a major cause for concern. The locker rooms are extremely filthy to the point that if you drop any of your black uniform on the floor for even a second, they will have dirt all over them. All their equipment is either damaged, faulty, or jury-rigged to barely work. Their entire system is ridiculously out-dated and everything is done manually in a program that looks like it was made in the 1980s. The trucks are constantly on the brink (pun intended) of falling apart, and there is always issues with them. The managers are very disorganized and really don't care about anybody besides themselves and maybe the full-time guys that lick their boots. The work culture is absolute garbage. People will step over you to get ahead, so trust no one. Everybody is talking about you behind your back, so if somebody starts chit-chatting and asks something like how many shifts you got this week, just don't tell them. They will complain behind your back and you'll either get shifts cancelled or receive not as many the preceding weeks. Don't make friends here, just do your job and go home if you are really that desperate. Everybody here is a back-stabber. If you have the pleasure (sarcasm) of working with a full-timer, they will rush you to get the job done because they get paid their 10 hour shift regardless of how early their work is completed. As a casual you will - 

Points positifs

Look cool with a firearm, people think you're important

Points négatifs

Bad hours, poor management, union politics, horrible work culture

The experience of work was good at this time.

I have started working for Garda when it took over Intercon, I have had success and i have had hard times. However i will say Management, Employee services, HR and Recruitement all have been supportive when asked for by me for assistance. Please i know that people may have had negative experiences, not every experience is perfect ever knocking a company is actually generally is poor taste.

Points positifs

They do give full time and open shifts whenever they need

Points négatifs

They do not give site or shifts when we ask them.

Good pay, very stressful job.

I worked in Protective Service and in Aviation as Screening Officer, in both division management is there to give pressure to the employees. Inconsistent application of the guidelines. Unfair treatment between employees.

Excellent job

Good company to work for, they are all Polite and well mannered. If you want to work the hours are there. The benefits are good and you have a union. Most of there sites are safe and good.

Competitive and progressive

Good for individual and professional growth. It helps you to learn and train better with excellent work culture. Concierge security guard is more of a customer service job with focus on securing and controlling access.
