    I have been working at Paladin Security Group full-time

    Pros

    Paladin has set a toxic-free culture that encourages growth of employees. My co-workers are happy individuals who are motivated to go to work all the time. Bosses are supportive of our endeavors. They monitor us closely as they can and provide assistance. A nice place to establish a stable career.

    Cons

    The job can be quite tough sometimes. It is a must to stay critical minded.

    I have been working at Paladin Security Group full-time

    Pros

    Good company culture and core values. Supervisors and peers are very respectful. I’ve been with several security companies in the past but this is the most organized and professional. I am able to focus on my job without the politics and drama. The job can be challenging at times but having a great team behind you makes everything manageable.

    Cons

    I don't have any concerns, been working as a security guard for more than 5 years and conditions here are definitely better compare to my previous employers.

    Pros

    It's a nice experience when you know your company prioritizes their employees. Good hours, comprehensive benefits, flexible schedules, and lots of posts to choose from. They also offer help with certs and training. This is my first job and planning to make this a career.

    Cons

    Really nothing to complain about. Night shifts and working on holidays but that comes with the job.

    Good starting point if you're looking for a stable job that pays decently. Heard a lot of good things about the company and they did not disappoint. Got some training and help with my certificates. They make it easy to get a job here. Lots of room for advancement.

    Cons

    In general, i don't have anything negative to say about the company. It's just the nature of the job that you have to work nights and holidays.

    I have been working at Paladin Security Group full-time

    Pros

    I'm glad to have a stable and secure job. I enjoy working with different people. Most of the employees here are friendly and helpful. Paladin Security is really a great company to work for. You don't need to be experienced at all. They help you with uniforms and with the BST training just from the start. I have a nice supervisor; we collaborate very well. The payment is on time and there are some good promotions and raises based on work dedication and involvement.

    Cons

    There is nothing really hard about this job. No pressure. The work is stress-free.
