Ok for Night Owl Students and Retirees
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Oshawa, ON12 décembre 2018
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

Decent
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Mississauga, ON11 décembre 2018
I've heard there are better companies out there, but they are decent. They offer training courses (unpaid), work is good but highly site dependent. Not bad overall.

Not a real job
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Mississauga, ON10 décembre 2018
You work rotations that don't fit everyday life often going 3 weeks without a weekend. the work is easy and comfortable, however the shifts are long and the pay is minimum.

Best place to work
SOC - Full Time (Employé actuel) –  Toronto, ON19 novembre 2018
Paragon is one of the best security companies I work with. They even offers you competitive wages depending on the sites. They even offers you different sites if you are not confident about a certain site.

great job
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON20 octobre 2018
If your looking to start your career as a police officer or immigration or anything like that then this is the job you want. Paragon is a great place to work at and is good when it comes to public safety you'll definitely learn a lot from them in terms like discipline and the importance of being early for your shift not just on time. Pay is great as well the more you know (ex.online training) and the longer you stay the more you get paid. My overall experience with Paragon was great.

relaxed and well balanced
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON12 octobre 2018
the place was always good to work at. I had fun meeting new people at various job sites. Though Night shifts were considered to be relaxed, I found it hard cause I preferred meeting new people at the job site

good experience and knowledge learning
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON12 octobre 2018
I had a good experience at paragon security. I was there for a few years. I recieved my first security job with paragon. They are a good company, but i feel like theres no place to grow or move up with that company. Its a good experience when your first looking for a job to gain experience, but not when your trying to move up with them for a better position.
Points positifs
good employees
Points négatifs
no chance to grow

Cheap Security Company
Security Guard (Employé actuel) –  Diffirent locations through GTA26 septembre 2018
This company is a good staring company as you begin your journey withing security field as they hire you right the way. They charge WAY TOO much for their uniform that will need fixing or replacement withing month or two(cheap). So they make money even before you start as you sign papers with them. The pros is that they have good training classes and O.K- HR department, but the other things such. The other things such as to provide you better pay after probation and giving a reasonable distance to travel from your home to work as they always give you the furthest location possible. Training is good paycheck and job security is not as they can fire you if you are sick for more then 3 days or always late within your probation period which is make sense. My rate is 3/5 Stars.
Points positifs
PROS are good training and HR.
Points négatifs
CONS : bad locations, poor personnel change, poor uniform quality(expensive).

Excellent Management
Client Service Manager / Locating Commissioner (Employé actuel) –  North York, ON31 août 2018
Very happy to be part of this team. Having had roles that were largely unsupported, this is a very refreshing change.
The teams are skilled in their fields and everyone displays the same mindset.
Having defined roles and clear expectations leave little room for ambiguity. That in turn then leads to successful teams.
Points positifs
Supported completely, Sr Management believe in employees

Average
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Mississauga, ON26 août 2018
Working there was okay, as work itself wasn't bad, but the pay sucked as they only paid minimum with very fewer opportunities for advancement. Overall experience was average.
