Operational Support (Employé actuel) – Calgary, AB – 24 juillet 2019
Working at Xpera and ESM has been a rewarding career. The management is supportive and encourages growth among the employees. They also ensure that everyone has a work/life balance and are supportive of those who choose to serve in the Canadian Forces and work for Xpera at the same time.
Investigator/Close protection (Ancien employé) – Vancouver, BC – 7 février 2019
This company is horrible. Straight out of the gate from the condescending attitude and games management plays. I've dealt with other companies where the owner is from Xperia, CPK Global, FIC or Mustang. The treatment by management is the worst of my career. Upper management will blame it on the bad employees the acquired during one of there many takeovers but even after they are gone it doesn't stop.

Do not bother with this place the supervisors are a married couple that pick and choose who they like and dislike and team up together . They make up their own rules as they go after incidents occur and put blame on to you. Lack of training and expect you to know everything on your own and punish you when a mistake is made.No washrooms on most sites and you are not allowed to leave so your forced to hold it. Never guaranteed work so everyone is always picking up whatever scraps are available. The supervisors will never recognize the good work you do but let others get away with everything.If your ever in trouble your best to call 911 because noone will be there for backup. For a minimum wage paying job with everything involved it is not worth the risks .You can get paid the same wage doing any job with guaranteed hours and/or benefits

They play favorites and run off good guards. Don't work out of town if you have a family you will stay out there can be very long time upwards of a week to 10 or more straight with no days off. Management says one thing and does another causing confusion and stress. Most site don't have toilet facilities so they allow you to leave site. How do you maintain integrity of a site when you need to leave. It is against human rights to work a site like that. They don't respect guards if it's hot they don't provide water or light uniform jacket. They expect you to have data on your cell phone incase of emergency or to call them with issues and they don't even offer to pay a portion of your data plan. If you smoke you won't be allowed to work certain sites which to me again is against rights. They look great at first however you can see the mismanagement and lack of direction once there! Pay issues happen as well... Many guards got shorted hours or didn't get a check for a 2 week period and they don't even try to rectify that at least give a cash advance or counter check. I personally didn't get a check one time and I was forced to wait till the following payday to get it. That made my check bigger then normal and got much more taxes taken off because of it.
DON'T WORK THERE IF YOU RESPECT YOURSELF OR WORKPLACE
You get to sit in work supplied vehicles on some sites
Investigator (Ancien employé) – Hamilton, ON – 14 septembre 2018
It is in your best interest to stay far far away from this dysfunctional company. They are trending downwards. I have nothing positive to write. The leadership of this company is a mirage and employs below average investigators.
I left voluntarily and will never recommend xpera to anyone whether employee or client. Not worth your effort or money!
Senior Investigator (Ancien employé) – Toronto, ON – 18 mai 2018
Worked as a senior investigator there for 2 yrs and they never increased my wages. No respect from managers who mostly think you should obey them like Gods, and the workload required after surveillance is ridiculous for what they pay for reporting, video dubbing etc.
Senior Investigator (Ancien employé) – Hamilton, ON – 7 décembre 2016
I worked at both companies that eventually formed this monstrosity of a business. I was treated like a dog and even overheard management call the investigators dogs. The corporate structure of the company is infected from top to bottom. Prior to the merger I was relieved of my position a month before Christmas with a toddler and newborn. I was relieved of my duties as senior investigator because I stood up to the morons who run that side show. The only people who are capable of sustaining a career in this company are spineless cowards who fear insignificant threats. Leaving this company was a blessing and I have flourished since myou departure. Xpera is a lame name as well. Lol
