Fulfilling career in Security.
I have been with PSG for 8 years now and I’m proud to say I have moved up considerably. I now play a crucial role which is challenging, yes, but I all feel fortunate that all the parties I coordinate with are all cooperative. The company’s highly diversified culture makes it fun and enriching to work here. We work in shifts so we still get ample time for our personal lives.
ProsTheir training program is the best - the envy of other security companies in Canada.
ConsDealing with emergency situations, but really, this comes with the profession.

Poor management and hiring standards
Can be a very great experience depending on where you are working. Training ranges from multiple courses to literally nothing other than your basic security license. Some sites are great and provide lots of experience, others involve sitting all day on a chair looking down an empty hallway. Pay is poor and management gives off the feeling that you are expendable as a guard and have no job security.
ProsGood experience
ConsPoor pay

Empty promises.
With my employment with this company I was offered several different positions or titles and training and there was never follow through. Although, the sites were convenient they all pay close to minimum wage, for working nights 12s. There were constant 12 hour shifts that turned in to 16 or even 18 hour shifts constantly due to the morning relief calling in and management unable to find a relief.
ProsLots of locations.
ConsDead end job.

Equal opportunity employer with great opportunities to expand knowledge and grow within the company
Overall working for paladin Security has been a gratifying experience… as with any large company, there are growing pains, but beyond that, in the 4 years with Paladin Security, I have been treated well. And have enjoyed the opportunity to work with many great people in our diverse culture.

The Team at the hospital was great.
I found the hospital security management didn’t care about the security guards. I enjoyed helping people at the hospital and keeping the hospital staff and clients safe.
ProsGood team leaders and guards
ConsOne work week is too long. It should only be four days
Security Guard | St. John's, NL | Jan 27, 2023
Great place to work if you can get the hours.
I only a casual so it was great in the summer when everyone wanted time off. but going into winter they didn’t have many shifts and casuals got the sick calls for the most part. expect last minute calls for overnight shifts.
Security Officer | Vancouver, BC | Feb 21, 2023

Professional work environment working with professional people at Verizon.
Paladin Security was a good company to work for... before they went out of business. The security officers were above average and hard working. Management gave promotions and raises based on merit.I learned about computers and security consoles on the job at Verizon.The hardest part of the job was getting the Verizon employees to keep their ID badges visible in plain sight. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting the job done in a professional manner each and every day and working among good people.
ProsPaladin was not a company that pressured the Security Officers.
ConsHealth insurance was high.

This is a good business
I enjoyed working for this business . I have no bad words about this security business. If I was to have a security business to guard my place of business it would be Paladin Security. On any typical day you would run in to a few hard cases but most of the time every one would be nice and friendly to you. How to be a better security officer. The management was a super bunch of nice people. My coworker were really nice to work with. There was nothing really hard about this job . Coming to work and meeting different people from other states and countries.
ProsYou would get a Chritsmas bounce
ConsNo benfits
Security Officer | Waco, TX | Apr 9, 2020
Good management and nice peers
I commend our management for setting the optimistic tone of our workplace. We perform our job more effectively and efficiently because we have respect and confidence for each other. I cannot see myself working anywhere else. While it is usual for us to come across difficult cases once in awhile, I get through them because my co-workers are friendly and supportive. I’m fulfilled on what I do, and I’m happy to be a part of this dynamic and happy team.
ProsMy colleagues are nice and friendly
ConsThere’s a high level of professionalism required to be effective
Security Officer | Waco, TX | Jun 19, 2020
Good and Highly-professional Organization
I appreciate everything that the company has done for me. Working here has given me the opportunity to build a career. Paladin is highly organized and has well-defined roles. This gives you a sense of structure, something that you don't see in other security companies. I work with a team of professionals who care about doing a great job. Friendly managers who make it a point to check if everything's okay. All in all, good work environment.
ProsStable hours, Competitive pay
ConsStraightforward job, No surprises here
Security Officer | Irving, TX | Mar 30, 2020
Effective culture of recognition
We have effective managers who set a culture of recognition. They evaluate our performance and commend every job well done. They are also present tp provide assistance should we need any. This inspires us to go beyond the bare minimum. I'm also happy with the sense of teamwork that we live up to in this company. Every employee supports each other which makes our working conditions pleasant and inclusive
ProsCompetent managers, purposeful work and nice environment
ConsOur productivity is closely monitored.
Security Officer | Waco, TX | Jan 30, 2013
Great people to work with, best security company in the business
This was a wonderful job. I really enjoyed the security business. The owner is a great man with good values and a sense of pride in his business and his employee's. He always made sure we were dressed well, clean shaven and extremely presentable. He provides vehicles for long distance jobs and for patrol. Plenty of advancement opportunities for those who display a good work ethic.
Prosgreat environment, exciting field
Conssome of the older officers are a little high and mighty
Security Officer | Security, TX | Oct 18, 2022
Horrible upper management
Only cares about upper management not the real workers. Very Bias and never listens to workers. Anyone not a guard gets better treated. Does not listen to ideas or problems. No empathy towards there workers. Forbidden to express your feelings or frustration or there’s a chance of termination without any chance of explaining yourself or you will be terminated due to them not caring about your thoughts.
ProsGets paid
ConsNot worth the garbage pay for ways expecting and the way ur treated
