They are easy to get hired by, but hard to get hours from. They make you get all these different apps for your job which probably are just to spy on you and figure out if you are, where you say you are. Basically meh, as an employer.
Shadow Security is for people who want fast money, for a short amount of time while they look for another job. By no means is it a job you want longer than 6-10 months. The hours are very inconsistent and the management can be very rude.
Labourer (Employé actuel) – Halifax, NS – 16 décembre 2018
All the shifts were mostly taken and when you could get one , they give you the wrong address and don't text back. Chasing down work is a must with these people and if you enjoy that i would HIGHLY recommend
While providing security to a outdoor concert venue in Dartmouth during the summer I sustained a serious burns to the top of my head while standing outside for an eight hour shift. I had asked the supervisor to provide me with a security hat that you are normally provided when hired but not in my case. The supervisor did not any hats on site so when my shift was completed the top of my head looked like a cooked lobster and I was in pain for sometime. Now looking back I should of quit before I sustained the injury! Personally, this was the worst experience I have had working for a security company.
Doorman (Ancien employé) – Antigonish, NS – 1 septembre 2018
I worked at the Dooly's in Antigonish through Shadow security and I enjoyed the job a lot but it was just a slow work environment because it just isn't a busy location so I never had to check many I.D's so i found myself just sitting around for the majority of my shifts.
Lots of over time available, helping clients using electronic kiosk to check in. Working team environment and everyone gets along and help wheel chairs or special needs to check in always learning something new. Love helping people when needed. Public transportation is available.
Shadow Security teaches everyone with their own level. Shadow security been a really great company ever since I started. I also enjoy working for a great team. When events come up during the summer, and also other things in between. The hours are there for me to meet with my needs.
traveling, meeting new people, welcoming new security to the company.
Security Guard (Employé actuel) – NS – 9 mars 2015
Patrolling new buildings or new events is interesting and always a learning experience. The supervisors are always there for your questions and to teach you all you need to know. My fellow guards and I share experiences to assist each other in our work. The hardest part of the job for me is not enough hours and at times having to deal with unnecessary medical issues but doing so none the less. I enjoy every aspect of my position and hope to carry on in this line of work with ongoing training.
