Stressful and not appreciated

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The company is ok and has some good contracts but you are definitely not appreciated for all they demand extra if you it’s just not worth the hassle! If you stand up for yourself or someone else you are a target and they will get rid of you one way or another.

Nightmare.

Dreadful work life balance.Be prepared to get phone calls on your days off to work extra shifts. They take £100 pound off your final salary if you leave and say it's for training you've had, that's £100 for every site they train you on. Management don't communicate with each other. Bullying tactics used to get you to work extra hours. Moved from site to site and miles away from where you live. Minimum wage on most sites. Quite frankly the worst and most unprofessional company I have ever encountered.

Pros

None

Cons

Steer clear!!!

Great place

I joined Alpha Omega in August, so I have been working here for just over a month now. I have nothing but great things to say about my colleagues here, everybody has made me feel incredibly welcome. I am thoroughly enjoying working here, it is fast paced, but I was expecting that from my interview. The company is clearly constantly growing, which is fantastic.Overall a great place to work.

Cons

Benefits such as company sick pay

miserable rat company - avoid this company with all costs

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

Pros

nothing

Cons

everything

Wage increases and 0 contracts

I do think they should increase the wages from minimum like other security company . 0 contracts is another problem is like you are hanging in balance if they have no work for you you are on your own. For those ones like me who worked for more than 10years on 0 contracts is not good at all.

Good for a first job

I did enjoy parts of the job but hated most mainly working night alone. You can learn a lot doing the job and may lead to other jobs in the same kind of sector. The hardest part are the long hours mainly nights and working alone most of the time.

Pros

New experienes

Cons

long hours, working alone
Was this review helpful?

Average company

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).

Pros

None

Cons

Lack of shifts unless willing to travel long distance

Dont Even Entertain It

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

Pros

The day i stopped working there

Cons

Strarting work there

This is a job for life if you want it

Its alright if you are single and have no family. Otherwise the demands of the job mean a lot of people cannot stay for long working here.

Pros

You can earn a decent wage

Cons

Long hours account for higher wage, plus no home life
