We doing access control during the day at night we looks after the premises.

I started working there in last 4 years while I had a previous working experience. But they regarded me as learner and not registered. They've been promising to register us ever since. Now they fired all dog handlers and they are forcing us to use the dogs without training of which is a client demand Etc.

Perfect company in deed

I just loved working there in the control room,I have never came across a company that put employees first. If I truly had to express my gratitude appreciation about the company I won't finish. Proffessionality is key,paperless work is an additional advantage for illiterates, U work with assistant and backup always in that company.i If I had to go back won't even think twice about it.go and experience for yourself u won't regret honestly.

Very prioductive

My day starts as early as 06:00 and clients calling in complaining . It is very important to stay as calm as possible. There is alot of pressure in the control room , from management breathing down your neck to upset clients. I love working with people and especially with those whom wants to work....

Pros

Cons

working around negative people

Productive and client focused

A typical day at work is from 6:30 am to 3:30 pm and generaly it is a relaxed iviroment. all my Co-Workers works well together and we help each other when needed. we are very deadline driven so pressure becomes more towards the end of the month as we pay monthly. Managemnt is very good as you get rewarded with good compliments when doing something right.

Cons

Long hours are required when deadline cannot be reached in time.

very productive, enjoyable

Apcan Risk Management was a very sad company to work for. I was a contractor for a site based in Wadeville. I enjoyed my employment at the client. I worked with a lot of friendly and understanding employees. I was always willing to help other employees. I used my time very productively in this workplace. My management was very unprofessional at the time, but the clients management was a bliss. my hardest part of the job was being ignored by my management but yet enjoyable with the clients management. I was informed of my good work by the client on a daily basis as I did my job to the best of my ability. sorry to say, that my employer, Apcan let me go on account of my pregnancy.

Pros

freindly staff

Cons

unprofessional management
