When I complained about this I was fired
The next week. There road supervisor said I complained about having to use my own gas for a twelve hour shift. I felt I should be compensated for having my personal car used four days a week in an extremely bad winte

Great place to obtain Security License they teach you the basics and prepare you for the test. I had done the course at the Oshawa paragon all staff had been very helpful.

On a normal day I would come in my casual clothes and not change into my uniform until about 4 hours into the shift. For the entirety of the day I would sit and watch Netflix, and sometimes I would order food. The job was very easy and completely stress free, it was so easy in fact that a monkey with minimal training could do this job.

I was hired at the Oshawa office. After asking me way too many questions about site preference, I was given a COMPLETELY opposite site. Figured I may as well just give it a try. After first two days I came to the conclusion that the schedules, location and distance do not work with my other job, I asked for a different site. I was told they would get back to me and to contact Toronto head office in the mean time. As I was waiting for a reply from the Toronto head office, i reveied a call from dispatch for a no show?? I let them know my dillema and two days later i get a call saying I’m fired. Fast forward two weeks my first paystub missed a whole day of work, when i called in about it I was literally yelled at by the manager at Oshawa office, claiming I harrassed him by not coming to work? Dude was losing his beans and at one point said he WOULDN’T PAY ME; until i let him know it was illegal to do so..

MY ADVICE: SAVE YOUR $200-$400 COURSE MONEY AND GET A REGULAT MIN WAGE JOB CAUSE THIS IS NO DIFFERENT. WHY GO THROUGH THE PAY GATE TO GET PAID THE SAME??

I worked at Paragon for just under a year from various "floater sites" (random sites the scheduler books you in for usually the day of) and at a permanent position at Durham College/UOIT. Pay is pathetic at $14/h, when you get hired you are to pay a ridiculous uniform fee (ballpark of $300+) which you will be deducted in your pay, and will most likely keep getting deducted AFTER you've already paid it off so make sure you keep track of your paystubs. Also if you work overtime do not expect to get paid for it, again make sure you check your paystubs and your hours. I would recommend you document every shift you work to properly account your time. Still it is a very easy job very common with students as it's an easy way to get the odd shift into your school life. Would not recommend for a career. This is simply a "bum job" as I like to call them. Clock in, do your patrols, make sure you don't fall asleep. Job can be very lonely depending on which site you are place, whether that's a good thing or not is up to you. Just make sure you have a book. Even though in my time working here I never got into a physical altercation with somebody, the job can be uneasy at times depending on your location. Also you are immediately placed into a union that will never stand up for you (they actually hung up on a coworker of mine twice) but will never forget to take the money from your pay.


Honestly most of this review is bad because it is a pretty lame job, but if you're just looking for a job to get in some long hours quickly, this is most likely your best bet.m; as long as they pay you

They're always hiring new guards, because there's always a need for security and because a lot of people quit. Training is good, and everything seems fine when you're first hired. As long as you're willing to work long and weird hours they've always got a position for you... if you get a good manager/dispatcher. If you don't you can go days without work, even after repeated requests for more work/hours.
Points positifs
Easy relaxed job with good training.
Points négatifs
you're screwed if you don't get a good dispatcher.

If you have some experience in the field, Paragon has some great sites to offer. Obviously it can also be a place to gain more experience. Great place to work if you are looking to become a police officer.

Promised more than they could deliver and management isn't very professional. They sent me to complete 3 days worth of training in Toronto for no pay and had to find and fund my own transportation which got VERY expensive. Had to pay for uniform, once on the job, the pay absolutely sucked and they expect you to be flexible and dedicated to their company only. Scheduling was a pain, they said they would work around my work/life but couldn't manage. If you're willing to look past the flaws, it's not bad.
Points positifs
Easy to contact.

There is very little room for growth with this company. They also advertise higher wages than they actually pay, you will start at minimum wage and if you get a raise it will be at very most only a dollar above minimum wage. The job is very easy and you work with great people.
Points positifs
Fun Job
Points négatifs
Long Hours Low Pay

I am very happy working for Paragon Security. I get enough hours, the employees are professional and friendly and it is a very secure job. The downfall is that I work 12 hour overnights and this is hard on my body due to my weekly schedule, but there is nothing wrong with this, it is simply a personal opinion.

Paragon Security is a big giant lie company, they promised me full time work right after I did there 300$ course, plus CPR and First Aid, Smart Serve ect. I got one temporary job at a fair and they promised they'd call as soon as there is a full time position and it's been months now.
Points négatifs
start above minimum wage
