Top 10 Reasons to Join Paladin
Paladin Security is committed to offering the best employment and career development opportunities in the security industry because we want the very best and brightest people our industry has to offer.
We go to extremes that are unheard of within other companies to ensure that our people feel rewarded and satisfied with their role in Paladin. The following are just some of the reasons why we were named as one of Canada's Best Managed Companies with the 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures, as the ‘Employer of Choice’ in the security industry.
Superior Pay Rates
Paladin Security is one of the highest paying companies in the security industry and we believe our people are worth it.
Comprehensive Employee Benefit Programs
Among other things, we offer a comprehensive benefit plan to our staff that includes dental insurance, extended healthcare coverage and life insurance.
Extensive Company Paid Training
As a company that is committed to delivering the highest level of training and education in the industry, Paladin provides over 50 safety and security related courses to our staff in order to encourage their development and advancement within our company.
Promotion From Within
Our belief in promoting from within, coupled with our strong record of growth, has provided countless opportunities for our members to grow within our company. With our extensive training programs and impressive growth, members of Paladin can easily develop a successful career path within our company.
Site Variability & Compatibility
As one of the largest full service security companies in Canada, we have an extensive variety of challenging assignments and positions within our company. We work with our people to accommodate their interests so that they enjoy their assignment and feel challenged by their work.
Accommodating Shift Schedules
A Paladin career does not have to mean sacrificing all of your spare time and compromising your life’s schedule. Whether you are looking for full-time or part-time work, we will work with you to find a shift schedule and a location that works for you.
Company Paid Licensing & Uniforms
Most security companies charge their employees for the training that they provide them with, and make them pay for their own security licenses. Additionally, they also make them pay for uniform deposits. Paladin Security is different. We pay all the upfront and ongoing costs for your security license, your uniform and your training.
Employee Care Coordinator
Many companies in our industry talk about their commitment to their people, but few demonstrate their commitment through their actions. To ensure that our staff members are supported and valued, we have created a senior position in each branch called the Employee Care Coordinator.
The Employee Care Coordinator is responsible for putting together programs and systems that increase the overall satisfaction of our large and varied workforce. Among other things, the ECC is also responsible for developing and administering reward and incentive programs, organizing company parties, and resolving general employee problems if and when they occur.
Reward & Recognition Programs
Paladin Security leads the security industry in reward, recognition and incentive programs for our people. Each branch has Performer of the Month Awards, daily Field Manager's Choice Awards and weekly Client Service Manager Choice Awards to recognize and thank our people for doing such wonderful work. These are monetary rewards and all winners and runners-up are also mentioned in our monthly newsletter, The Paladin Pipeline.

Open Communication & Feedback Mechanisms
Paladin listens closely to our people. Not only do we hold regularly scheduled site meetings, site supervisor meetings and management meetings, but we also conduct extensive employee surveys at least once a year. The ‘Paladin Report Card’ solicits advice and suggestions from our staff on how we can improve the delivery of our services – both internal services, such as administering our benefits plan, and external services, such as providing security to a site.
We are a company that believes in constant and never-ending improvement, and the motivation for change comes from both our clients and our people. This is the foundation upon which Paladin was built and is one of the reasons why our company is so successful.
