Fun and productive

Poor management but has great contracts in the city. I have been advancing in my career in Security. Think of in this company just as a stepping stone to achieve something better.

No love, no hate

Worked for 4 years with the company under a hospital contract. I liked my supervisors quite a bit. Uniform was okay. A lot of payroll issues on head offices side unfortunately

Points à améliorer

  • Rémunération juste par rapport au travail effectué

A fairly stress free environment.

My typical week is set in stone. Monday to Friday, no weekends or holidays. Hours are 8am to 5pm.I’ve learned more than I expected about the operation of the site I am at. Garda management is always friendly and understanding as long as I follow the guidelines set out in the handbook.My site is an office building housed mainly by provincial government workers. Most of them are very friendly people to converse with. The most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom I have to do whatever is necessary to improve the job itself.

Points positifs

I take my breaks whenever I can

Stressful and low income salaries, lack of diversity.

As a Mobile Patroller I find the rôle challenging simply because the company do not care too much about workers wellbeing and safety on their job, the road conditions gets really bad especially winter times and no one checks in on the guards or send a message to tell guards to be careful or just checking in on them. The work gets added on every time without consulting anyone. We drive 12 hours nonstop, all night and it gets pretty tiring as you have to drive site to site, a simple email to say how are you guys doing could be appreciated, and the compensation is terrible considering the fact that the work is overwhelming.And diversity is lacking in the company, there is certain group of people that are always being considered for job opportunities, I feel sometimes out of place because of lack of diversity. Management to bottom is the same kind of group. It is also difficult to move up even sometimes you feel like you are more qualified for the role of that particular position. The company overall has a potential of being an opportunity career orientated, but because of diversity and giving other people fair chance to move up it’s what makes it difficult to rate it positive.

Points positifs

No motivation

Points négatifs

Lack of diversity and long hours

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.

Inclusive workplace

Work is monotonous, lots of training, management not really on workers side. You do your work and go home. Paid the minimum but sucks every bit of energy from you. Okay for a part time and no benefits.

Great company to work for

Garda is great to work for. The pay is decent and lots of hours if you need overtime. Unfortunately the medical benefits weren't the greatest as you had to apply for them yourself as it's not a group plan.

Could be better

I've worked a good 8 to 9 years for Gardaworld and only had to stop due to health problems. Had no complaints except for the continental shifts affecting my sleeping pattern. Have tried to get back to work but finding it hard to get into contact with anyone.

It was ok for a transition job

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.

Communication and site support

Security jobs are an important contribution to community safety and deserves more respect and recognition as the valuable asset it is to everyone. Better wages and more safety protocols need to be addressed. Gardaworld is the best of the security companies I have worked for because communication regarding job sites are detailed and on site support is immediate if needed. I worry sometimes about my personal safety on some job sites but I do feel like I can call for help at anytime.

Good job

Good jobVeryyy good job amazing pay very good environment. Bad union doesn't help you at all. Amazing breaks and meet lots of people. Everyday new task

Good, stress free but requires a lot more sacrifice on your end

Overall the work is not too bad, however the initial scheduling will put people off. The HR is very unaccomodating to your shift change request at the start.
