I truly enjoyed every moment when I worked with TOERSA. There is no other company that can match TOERSA's work environment. All staff including management are all friendly, approachable and easy to work with.

It always amazes me how quickly shifts go by when working events, fairs and festivals. Working around plenty of people, interacting with people, working with a strong team and being around live music makes your shift go by a million times quicker than most other positions.


One of the best things about working with TOERSA is their scheduling. The scheduling app allows you to clock in and out without having to text dispatch and it also allows you to pick and choose your own schedule. When there are shifts available, managers will post the shifts on the app showing the location, time and duties. If you want to work, you can take the shift through the app. There are times where some of the managers might reach out to you to ask if you can work somewhere but it's all up to you.


If you're looking to work for a security company or hire one, TOERSA is by far your best option.

Regardless if you're new to the security or have years of experience, TOERSA Security welcomes you to their team with open arms.

Nothing is complicated when working for them. Scheduling, requesting time off, clocking in and out all works through an app on your phone. Managers will post shifts on the app and it lets you choose when and where you want to work. If you want to work that week, take some shifts. If you don't want to work, don't take any. The simplicity let's you balance your work life and personal life without effort.


They want to see their employees grow as security guards but also as individuals. They provide their staff with all these new opportunities and positions but you never arrive confused as managers and supervisors are always there to help. This is because of their phenomenal communication and how organized they are.


Unlike a lot of other security companies, you'll see the managers check in on their staff at events and even work in the field with them. This makes every event go significantly smoother and when incidents happen, they will always be there to help and assist their guards if needed.


TOERSA Security has been the only reason on why I'm still in the security industry. Working these huge events and festivals is fun but working with all of their friendly staff is what makes work so much better. When you know where you're working and who you'll be with, you almost get excited to go to work.


Regardless of your experience in security, I highly recommend working for TOERSA. You will not regret it.

I am very happy and lucky to work with toersa security in ottawa. I had a 1.5 year experience in working as a security guard. During my shifts or duty on site, i met some nice people who encourage me to stay longer with toersa security. It was fun and productive experience working as a security guard part time/ full time. Workplace culture was very unique.
Points positifs

Salary and advancement - have to admit, nothing special there. It's a great group of people, they will pay you on time an in full, but you're not going to get rich here. That being said, advancement might be changing - they were growing rapidly when I left, and were always looking for good people.

Long story short, if you're looking to take over the world? Try Apple, I hear the genius bar is practically a Lex Luthor training camp. Looking to make friends, never be bored, and hear & have interesting stories? Get a job here.

Company hires many employees and has broad spectrum of very experienced, menacing, high quality personnel to "first day on the job" young adults. This is because of their roots in event security and the sheer numbers needed to properly staff. This makes for a wishy-washy reputation in the space.

Persons must be serious about work in this field to accumulate hours or gain advancement. Otherwise they will quickly be forgotten post festival season.

Great company at first...Until management start to guilt trip you into taking shifts, unqualified for their jobs, not supportive in the field, would rather replace you than provide constructive criticism. Definitely hired for quantity over quality. The "family" environment they claim to have is one of their biggest downfalls, only those who fit in to the "family" get the good shifts. They will make you feel valued and supported for the first 2-3 months of your employment and then it's downhill from there.
Points positifs
You can choose when to work
Points négatifs
unsupportive management

Toersa is a leader in the Ottawa market. I experienced a good team oriented culture. The work was never routine and repetitive, every shift had new situations and challenges to deal with.

Where they are lacking is training and employee development. For my position, we learned on the job but were given no direct feedback by the team leader. There was little transparency when it came to performance evaluation. It appears that leaders and supervisors made wholly subjective evaluations and did not bother to communicate these to their team members.
Points positifs
Hearing and seeing first class music acts during work.
Points négatifs
Training non existent, job evaluation shared only with site administrator not the employee in question

Within all of the security companies I've been with, Toersa has to take the cake on being the best one yet. Management is absolutely top notch. They're very professional, organized and friendly. Every employee is treated with great respect, they make sure to work around your schedule for friends and family and they're there to help you grow as an individual and as a security guard. Pay wise, they're great. Every site has a different wage but it's never not enough to think "I don't get paid enough for the kind of work I'm doing."

The company itself is top notch. They care about having a good reputation which is shown in their work and employees. Having contracts with events/festivals like Bluesfest and City Folk is absolutely amazing. They're fun to work, really good way to connect with your coworkers. All employees seem to always be reliable, hardworking and likeable which actually makes you excited to go to work.


The only issue with Toersa is when festival season is done, you'll struggle getting full-time hours. So if that's what you're looking to do, you'll have to find another company to work with during that slow period of time. There are some other pretty big contracts during those slow times but they're not consistent hours.

Management, Pay

The managers are great people and make this a great place to work. I actually look forward to going to work. Everyone works together which is the best part about the company. People look out for each other here which makes a solid team and makes coming to work all that much better. It has also been a great learning experience getting to be more social and meeting all kinds of great people.
On top of it there are lots of hours to offer especially during the summer when we have our festivals so even more hours are available which is perfect especially when you need extra money. I would definitely recommend working here.

My social skills have become a lot better and weaknesses have also began improving. When dealing with clientele you learn how to be more patient, more accepting, more lenient and stronger mentally. My self confidence has also started picking up. Management always thanks you and is always respectful of the work you do which has helped quite a lot. It helps you pick up the job faster as well as learning new things about the job faster.

Toersa. The name rings home to me. Toersa offered me the opportunity to enter the securities field. Toersa facilitated my questions, concerns, and growing pains in the industry. The close knit family atmosphere gives you the feeling that you're part of not only a team, but a group of like minded individuals striving for the best work environment possible, and providing fantastic customer service. One of the best feelings I have ever experienced and do experience in my life, is having a person who was against you moments ago, shake your hand and tell you that you're the reason they are still alive, and them thank you for being the voice of reason. I would suggest Toersa for anyone who strives for a safer community for all of us, and who is willing to work with individuals and take extra steps to treat them with dignity and respect. Gone are the days of the bouncer being a force. Toersa understands that there are layers to a situation, and that most situations can be handled if you put thought and care into it, and realize we are all humans.
