I have been with this company 11 years now and it is the best place to work!The guards I work with have been friendly and diligent-Team members!The management in the company from top to bottom is very professional and helpful!Basically it is the dream job-THANKS GOD and it will be GOD WILLING!
Employee of the month
Ive been with Alpha Omega for 8 months now and cant fault the hours or shifts given, the management go above and beyond to help when needed and although the training could do with being extended there's always someone available to assist when needed. The staff at HQ are friendly and polite. As with any job there's good days and bad days, overall I would recommend working for Alpha, very good workplace culture
overtime shifts available to hard working staff
sometimes youll have to work bank holidays and/or weekends depending on your rota
Don’t waste your time with this company !! They will make you work around the clock with no rest and they couldn’t give a hoot about their staff as long as they got it covered they will leave you on site for hours ! Never know where you are at with them and there is definitely no future with this company at all unless you bark like a dog for them and they will probably throw you a treat.. not a very professional company at all..
No pros at all
Effects your personal life.
miserable rat company with miserable rat management avoid this company with all costs everybody beep on everybody you value less than 0 for them extremely stressful job they cancel shifts without telling you and you go to site just to see there other guard in your place they modify your shifts very often charge for transport 7.2 one way that means that is you are transported by company car you will pay 14.4 a day - 2 transports transport highly unreliable they can forget to put you on transport list, or you can wait 3 hours for it. very long shifts 15-16 hours sometimes sometimes very long patrols 30-45 min/petrol and you need to do one patrol every hour they cancel and or modify your shifts without telling you extremely extremely often and speaking with a manager which wants to modify your shifts again and you realise that the they modify your shifts before and you are learning about this just in the moment when you speak with the manager thiefs - you need to calculate your salary extra carefully because all the time they pay you with some pounds less and take a very long time until they decide to give you something back - rare occasion
Management bully and threaten guards in to accepting shifts they don't have to. On-site training often doesn't happen, with guards left to wander in the dark without knowing where they're meant to go. Get booked outside of town for work and then forced to pay them out of wages to get you there. Feeling sick? Tough, get to work. Horrible company, couldn't be more glad to see the end of my time there.
Senior Managers tend to bully staff . a culture of do it or you will lose your position within the company. No opinions allowed. Not willing to learn from mistakes with a culture of fire fighting all tasks and problems. the most enjoyable part of the day is going home.
Run! In the opposite direction, long hours, management are bullies to everyone, they make you think they care nahhh, £6charge each way to work, don’t train you for any roles your given a map and a you wing it Three supervisors quitting in a short period of time due to lack of pay, communication and the office getting on their backs to bully you into accepting shifts. Your sick? Boo how your getting a disciplinary, apparently GDPR doesn’t apply to this company and the senior ops manager can request anyone medical history he likes to verify why your not in work. Soon back tracked after this was pointed out in a recorded meeting with HR though So glad to see the back of this company
I worked as a mobile driver at numerous sites, seeing the workplace from the static guard side as well as the office environment. The prominent points that spring to mind are: -Unpaid training period on new sites, in my case as a driver a huge amount of hours as I visited a lot of sites even if there was no current need. You then sign off on having received training, but whether that training is sufficient or accurate you won't know unless you do something incorrectly as there is no reference material showing what correct procedure should be. Relevant later! -I was allowed into the control room and picked guards up for shifts so saw different sides of the workforce and much more of the senior positions than a static guard. Guard staff are nothing to them, they speak about you like you're a caged hen or worse. There are few exceptions, such as Caroline who is lovely. -Numerous cases of guards turning down very short notice extra shifts but then being penalised for doing so by having their normal hours cut or other inconveniences such as bottom of the list for getting picked up. -Absolutely ludicrous charges for basic uniform running into the hundreds of pounds, which I ended up avoiding as I never signed for them. -Huge turnover. 3 supervisors and countless others came and left whilst I was there. The attitude amongst those who do stick around is as if you're sticking it together in the trenches. Workplaces attract all sorts of personalities but on the whole I have honestly never worked at a place with such a high ratio of outwardly depressed people! My personal - more...
Relatively easy work depending on your site
Unless fortunate to be on a permanent site the shifts are erratic and prone to last minute change, management likely to say one thing but do another, expect to travel long distances with no recompense for cost (especially with many being shorter shifts).
Lack of shifts unless willing to travel long distance
stay away if you value your life!!! stupid hours stupid management who will ring you 7 days a week you dont get paid the correct amount oh and if you are sick you have to pay them a 100 quid for not showing up stupid company and employees
low wages management is a joke full of morons
Waste of time, the office are nic epeople but the way they manage guards and try to cover shifts are laughable. they try and cover any shift last minute and throw anyone else under the bus to do so. not to mention deceiving staff to work and trying to play it off as they're standard rota. also use to charge people for not being asble to complete a shift regardless or trying to get you to do something else for them if you're gonna be off for any length of time or even holiday booked. Don't bother working for this company as you'd be better off with ANYTHING else.
Long Hours, Expect Blood, Clear divide between office and guards, expect you to work every waking hour
Things were ok at first then it goes down bank. Ideal job if your single, no kids and no social life. Wages always short. Deduct money for no apparent reason then you never end up getting it back. Stupid wage deductions, even if you don't send a text to confirm a shift you get deducted £5. JUST DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THESE CLOWNS
The day i stopped working there
Strarting work there
