Good people but terrible experience
Shift Dispatcher (Employé actuel) –  Newmarket, ON16 août 2018
It's a good place to work with lots of nice people, unfortunately the management isn't the greatest and neither is the salary. Nothing happens at the Newmarket Mall so little experience is gained.

Great experience
Security Specialist for Aviva Canada (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON13 août 2018
Vastly expanded my knowledge on access control systems and national integration.

Avagilon systems (CCTV) were integrated with C'Cure systems (passcard and alarms) for monitoring across Canada and passcard systems are administered centrally.

A very supportive environment and scheduler to work with. The company would support its employees in every possible manner. This is a company where I would love to work again.

Consistency and Stability
Base-Building Security Officer (Employé actuel) –  200 Bay Street10 mai 2018
A typical shift for a Paragon Security officer consists of patrol duties as well as being seated at the front desk to monitor CCTV and greet customers/tenants. When necessary, the guards will be required to documents any outstanding activity and/or events. Otherwise, the workplace culture is welcoming and generally efficient.

Treated poorly
Security Manager (Ancien employé) –  1 adelaide street east25 avril 2018
After 11 years i'm thrown into the mud and forced to quit. There is no such thing as a good contract security company.

I worked hard to advance in the company, and do a good job. Management is no where to be found unless you have on site management, problems don't get solved, you're made into a scape goat

Decent Job for students
Concierge/Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Thornhill, ON20 avril 2018
It's a good company to work for if you don't have issues with traveling a lot. Very inconsistent placements at times and scheduling can be random. Hard to get a permanent placement if you're a student but the schedulers and other team members are nice and help you out if you just ask. Decent place to work if you're young and looking for experience.
Points positifs
Approachable people within the company
Points négatifs
Random placements, Far distances to travel, Don't get placed near your own area or a reasonable distance, Not compensated well in terms of wage if they place you far

A Lot of Smoke and Mirrors
Supervisor (Ancien employé) –  Commerce Court/First Canadian Place23 mars 2018
When you first arrive at Head Office Paragon, it looks very professional. However, unless you are selected for a flagship property, you will be working for very low wages and expected to work on a moments notices, is is a good thing if you're not concerned about work life balance and want the overtime. If you are at a flagship property, you will have to continually deal with transient guards with no site training, a low level of personal pride and professionalism and lacking the required equipment. Paragon is always hiring, due to the high turn over, this is usually based on the fact that after a very short while (unless you are new to the country and have little command over the english language) you discover there is something better out there.
Management is liken to used car salesman, lacking in leadership skills but filled with many promises (beware what's really behind the smile).
Advancement within the company is impossible as there is limited room, if you have any skill you will be stuck and remain exactly where there want you, not where you wish to go. If security is an industry you wish to follow, contract security companies are not in your best interest, in-house and municipal positions offer better pay and the respect as a person you deserve. Trust me, you will not find it with this company.
Points positifs
They offer free cookies while on course
Points négatifs
pretty much everything else

Meet many diverse and interesting people.
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON8 mars 2018
Because of the nature of being a security guard posted in downtown Toronto you come up with many different situations. I've had these following situations, on various shifts: bomb scare; suicide attempts; assisting a assault victim; getting rid of a unclothed guy in the adjacent dog park (and this was at 2pm on a Sunday afternoon!). And more...
Points positifs
Friendly tenants who give gifts.
Points négatifs
Low pay and long shifts.

12 hour Nightshift
Full-Time Tactical Division Guard (Ancien employé) –  North York, ON25 janvier 2018
On a usual Night-Shift period, I would clock in and begin my patrols throughout the building, wrote notes and surveillance on cameras. I also continously repeated that throughout the night until noon. I learned to use my time wisely and work with late hours. The hardest part of the job was the late hours and balancing that with my family life but i did what i had to survive. I did enjoy working with other guards and dealing with problems to protect our community.
Points positifs
Various hours and time period
Points négatifs
night hours

Paragon is a great company for anyone from student to someone who is almost retired and wants to survive.

However the company does not have enough opportunity and room for growth.

Too much politics
