This company promises alot in their job postings and simply do not deliver on anything. There is zero training, management is terrible on all levels, no opportunity to advance and to top it all off the hours suck and can be changed without any notice. I don't suggest working here unless you're truly desperate.
Securiguard was a good company that took good care of me while employed with them however it would be nice to see some of the excessive splurges on management be passed on to some of the guards who are working extra hard to make the company excel and be what it is.
Management treats you poorly, no training is provided, they didnt even gave note taking or radio usage trainings, expect your shift to be cancelled without even being informed and they dont pay the wage rate they tell you.
The staff is super rude and unprofessional. They were supposed to relocate me in June but they never reached me. Even when I used to work in one of their sites, my supervisor doesn't use to give us the break (Not even to use the restroom) just because we were at the front desk and we weren't allowed to leave the desk without his permission. And he never permitted us.
Worst security company ever! They will offer to pay for your lisences if you sign a contract for one year. They have terrible contracts available. They constantly lie to employees. They offered me a Stanley park driving position. During training they brought a bike. Wanted me to ride a bike around entire park, dishonest. Lowest pay in the industry. On call they sent a small female to guard downtown Eastside McDonald's during graveyard. Don't care about employees
Don’t know about other sites but the management for Detainee transport officer are the worst. The assistant manager and manager always say the opposite things. The main manager makes up random rules as he goes just to always be right. The job itself is great for experience and advancement but I’ve never seen such bad management before. High turn over rate due to management.
Hours are pretty normal for a security position being 12 hour shifts. They lie to you during the interview saying the new Surrey center is going to open any day but it never does. Management tells you inconsistent "rules" and are constantly making you sign new policies which they either don't follow or they change again. If you are looking for experience in a correctional environment, then this job works well for that. The pay is not good for the duties you perform, but if you can get past the pay and the bad management, then the supervisors and co-workers including all the officers you meet are awesome.
Poor management. They usually don’t know which member is supposed to do what shifts, do not give a leave even when the guard is unable to work, switch shifts and inform a day before. Very poor. Don’t give cheque’s on time!
Site manager constantly contradicts with the assistant manager about policies and lacks experience compared to the assistant manager.
Operations coordinator sends the schedule out the friday of the week before, but is constantly making mistakes and changes. Sometimes even without notifying the employee. Does not communicate well with the employees as she sometimes does not respond to questions via email.
