Just remember to make time for yourself , work is work no matter what always ensure you do your job to the best of your ability and what you are trained, never think of your duty as just a chill and paid .. critical thinking and sharp observing is a must in security and is strongly needed to be taught in the class course cause .. no offence and no disrespect in any form however there is a culture of tradition amongst foreign student gaurds that seem to just go on job site kick back and play music on their phones , whatch videos of half the shift , sometimes you have gaurds that don’t care to do patrols and that’s not fair to the client … but anyways work life is great full time I’ve don’t beat of both worlds so it’s safe to say expect the unexpected for your gaining of experience..sometimes the environments are fun and helps your time go fast some environments are neutral and weird but funny some are down right sketchy however they allow you to put what you’ve learned in your course to work .. I should know so yea work is good some sites are more than others. That’s cool.

Pros

Depends on the site

Contras

Expect the unexpected

No future in this company

Poor pay, management, they dont care for their employees at all, very unprofessional. Theres no future in this company you wont get any raises or no appreciation.

Do not work here

Not a good company to work for. Don’t care about their employees. Raises don’t happen. More work less paid, managers don’t lead by example. If you valve your mental and physical well-being DO NOT WORK HERE. All you are to this company is nothing but a number. The reason they are “Urgently” hiring is because they can’t keep guards, they won’t pay a descent wage, you pay for your uniforms, and anything you may need. They won’t support you if the “client” wants you removed, whatever the client wants they get.

Pros

None

Contras

Low wage, bad management, poor work like balance

Good place to work

Great hours for someone whose in a supervisor position (mostly due to site management), scheduler was easy to work with. Good benefits. Need pay increase for site specific.

Work place and pay is good, they provide basic pay

Management is too worst. They don't allow you to take off for 1 year, even if there any personal emergency and even if you remind them week before.. They say it's in contract. Don't get scammed by this guys . In case if you ask for off prior, supervisors and managers talk in filthy language.No benefits and nothing... Also they charge 365$ for their uniform, which we should return when we leave job. Every biweekly they charge randomly 25 or 50$ for no reason.

Trash company

Terrible company won't back you up at all. Worked for a site in Hamilton and the managers there are out to lunch and always remind you that you're replaceable. Client manager from Paragon reminds you of that as well. When you get a better job everyone is bitter and jealous. Catch ya later bums.

Pros

None

Contras

Everything
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Favoritism at its finest

This company has potential, I will give them that. However, after working there for a few months it became obvious that management only promoted those close to them or who they 'liked'. Owner at the time pretty much ignored anyone who wasn't a manager. The "little" people count too.

Pros

Stable hours

Contras

No room for growth, low pay

Great Security Company

I am currently working with Paragon Security Since December 2011 and accomplished many obstacles in which I understand and the experiences which I learned and training is fantastic and educating the Security Guards which has become more important and have become aware of their surroundings. The courses right now are advanced by the PPI Teams and the Managers bring in their leadership and their expertise and have put into actions where the guards are learning and improving. The Paragon Security Management are fantastic management

Pros

Courses have been improved and training is fantastic for the new recruits to come in
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Solid In-between job

A major downside is they make you pay for every piece of equipment/uniform. The job itself is easy. Chances are the guards and direct supervisors will be there for you. Bit of a misunderstanding sometimes with expectations/dangers of some sights when on call with dispatch but that may just be how downtown is.

Good company to start.

Flexible hours. Really good for students. Lot of hours available depend on your availability. They’ve lot of sites and if you’re not interested in one place to work for full time, can talk to the management and they’ll find one that suit you.

Pros

Flexible hours

Contras

Low wages

Bottom of the barrel

If you're from India, and a international student that has no passion for law enforcement or a work ethic, Paragon Security is your destination. Sadly, this has become the new norm.Pay rate is a joke in Toronto. Take the financial district for example. One site, the Supervisors could be getting paid $21 dollars an hour, while the site beside it, the Supervisors are getting $25 dollars an hour. Same work, same company, but a different pay rate.Worst of all, is how the new international students are being used to fill the open full time positions. At best, you'll get an individual for three months and will need to replace them afterwards with another short term guard. And when it comes to replacing, a month can be the wait period. Meanwhile, if a Supervisor leaves for another site or another job that pays a fair wage, there's no one to fill that open full time position because how Paragon has conducted its hiring decisions. This has ultimately resulted no one with the needed knowledge of the site to be an effective Supervisor.

Stressful and you deal with everything

This job is not a job that will pay for you living costs and it takes up most of your time with difficult hours. You usually start at night shift for a year and then if you prove yourself you get an afternoon shift if someone quits or an opening arises. They will give you a raise after a year which is not a big raise at all.

Pros

I can’t think of any pros

Contras

Long hours that conflict with actually living your life
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Nepotism and drama included.

Poor management decisions. Improperly trained and/or incompetent supervisors.Ancient system for shift changes or site changes.Not going to go anywhere at this company.

Low pay with no advancement

6yrs working at minimum wage, started with above minimum wage but as the government increased the minimum wage Paragon never adjusted the pay rate, only to the minimum so you actually got a decrease in pay. They are crooked and have no family values and force you to join the fake security union so they can deduct more fees off your paycheck. They just keep the money for their buddies.

One should not apply for this company

This company should not be in business. They don't have any respect for employees. I would advise people not seek job through this company. They make you lose self esteem.

Pros

Little

Contras

Many

Easy to get job for new comers.

This company is friendly and new - comer could get job easily in this company. Its better to gor for walk to be hired quickly. Salary range is not good but overall this company is good for getting security experience.

Not awful to work for, but pay is below standard

Paragon is good for part time or full time, expect minimum wage and very little room for growth or pay raises unless you are willing to sell your soul for the company. This company is not meant for long term employment, it is merely a stepping stone.

Pros

Autonomy, flexible with schedule

Contras

Pay, advancement, management
