Staff not valued and never appreciated. Pure pay as you go job with no minimal benefit. There's a feeling that staff could easily be replaced when they choose to leave
Pros
Easy going
Cons
Low pay and no benefits, even at Christmas time

The company always looked after for my wellbeing, provided the staff with everything to perforn my job in a professional way (uniforms, ppe, a very nice online training package) and most important gave me the chance to learn new things and to advance in many aspects of my role. Always had a friendly and professional relationship with my Site Manager, Area, Regional and Contract Directors. It has been a great experience working with Bidvest Noonan.
Pros
Good incomes, flexible, great jobsite, great team.
Cons
Nothing to complain about

I have worked with company for almost six years. I have been fortunate to have a great manager and supervisor. They train staff very well in all aspects of the job especially now with our current situation amidst the covid 19 pandemic.

Working here is a sure fire way to find yourself in constant bad moods and lost of all drive, management talks behind all employees backs right down to personal matters, horrible rota rotation, constantly being pressured to do double your contract hours wile refusing to just give you more contacted hours and your hours may change without notice. Hated this job and anyone I know who worked here hated it too. AVOID!!!
Pros
You get to quit
Cons
Horrible management

I have had experience in multiple different locations including a bus station, bank and school. Shifts can be short with lots to do but there is plenty of time given for you to be able to do. The area manager I have deals with a lot of issues you call him about and tries to find solutions with you and for you.
Pros
Set hours each week
Cons
Short shifts

Everyone is out to blame everyone else here. Not even a smell of any teamwork. Definitely one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. So glad I have left them,

For as long as I worked, there was no system as to who does what and when. The amount of work you needed to do in the time that was given was way too much.I'd be almost running around trying to get things done in time. The official hours set in the contract was 16 per week yet I would always have too start working 10 min early and would finish working 10 or 15 min after the end of the shift which would add up to two or three extra hours per week which I did not get paid for.Stay well away from this company.
Pros
Conveniant location
Cons
Pay too low for the amount of work, unethical work environment

Most other guards where getting double time for doing shifts when begged to cover I got nothing some even left around the same time I did and got they're holidays remaining paid to them like 3 4 hundred I got nothing and had about 35 days left as holidays
Pros
Double time bank holidays
Cons
Just a number they pick and choose, who gets paid what, when agreeing to cover but used me as a walk over

Worst company I’ve ever worked for. Treat you unfairly and make you feel so small. Not once have I ever been made to cry by a manager/head office apart from this company, it’s absolutely shocking excuse of a company
Pros
Short shifts
Cons
Treats you unfairly

Pros
nothing
Cons
