    Pretty good for mall security.
    I agree. When I applied at a mall they were offering $10.00 USD. Ten bucks and they want you to confront and arrest violators even though you are unarmed. I don't think so.

      You can do the job of confronting and arresting violators unarmed (without a firearm, not without other weapons and restraints), but you have to know what the hell your doing, get regular training from somewhere in defensive tactics, and have body armor.

      As much as I like the idea of arming folks, lets face it, several countries over the pond don't arm their average street cop. They're getting some officers killed, but that's a risk they'll take.

        No gun, no body amour up here & I do make arrests when necessary. (I also work alone most of the time). 30 years working in downtown hotels & have never had a weapon pulled on me (yet )
        I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

          You also don't have the gun and knife culture we do.

          Does Canada have a knife culture?

            Unfortunately, for those of us who work for a contract company it's all about the bottom line.Fortunatley the company i work for has distinguished itself here in town so he is able to ask for more and (sometimes get it).Most of the time you have to live with the lowest bidder syndrome.Most poeple simply dont are about the quality of guard,they care about the cost.i have no health insurance,provide most of my own gear and dont get paid a lot.This is offset by the amount of overtime 60 to 70 hours most weeks.Nature of the business i guess.I am lucky to have a boss who trains us a well and treats us well so that is a good thing.Huge turnover is a problem everywhere so nothing to bitch about.I love this work.

              There are killings with guns & knifes in Montreal but I think they tend to be domestic or drug related. The motorcycle gangs were very active in the past few years. More likely to happen on the street or at a bar or club than in an hotel. I'm speaking generally of course.

              Toronto also appears more violent than Montreal. They have a big gang problem there.

                That is absolutely good for mall security. When I was doing that job in 1998, I made a whopping $7.50 per hour. In 2000, I worked at another mall making $9.50 per hour. Now they make around $10 per hour here for the same job.

                  Keep in mind, thats a foreign country. I'd want to see a spreadsheet on wage comparisons. For all we know, the kid behind the counter in the food court makes that wage.

                    That is true, but average wages also vary across the United States. If that is typical of the wages there, I would say they have a pretty good economy.
