Usual large security company

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Typical large security company where direct contact with levels above you is very limited (unless something unfafourable happens). Quite often understaffed so many hours are available (it depend whether it is a pro or con for you).

Pros

Enough hours if wanted.

Cons

Long Hours

We work fairly well with each other.

I am happy at my work Place and am grateful I had the opportunity to work there since 2015.The Company is good to work for if you are dedicated, a team member and you are serious with your work.

Pros

We do not get free lunches. But the staff room has kitchen facilities for our use.

Cons

I don't have an issue with working 12 hours because I Prepare myself well for that .l

Lack of help from Management

Badly paid job. Always paying different rates. Management of the poorest quality. Only met manager once in 10 months even though he promised to come each month. They do not care at all about your well being. No progression whatsoever here. Many emails sent to sort out pay still haven't sorted it out. Thank God I've left. Only good thing was the staff at lidl who helped me alot.

Shuld Prolly Juss Sleep

The business model means they have financial incentive to keep the position filled over the short-term whilst management truly do not care about the long term prospects of individual sites. If you are an honest worker you will feel penalised for actually following instructions whilst those who choose not to bother have no consequences for their actions, are paid the same as you and in some cases given extra shifts. So if you like the idea of being paid minimum wage, to be associated with juvenile, dishonest co-workers, for a management that do not care and a business model doesn’t differentiate between good or bad behaviour then this company is the place for you.

Pros

Paid correctly and on time

Cons

Multiple

Very good company to work for.

I’ve been working for Noonan’s now for over 4 years I’m a casual working working at various sites I’ve never had a problem with them the management can be a bit lax but other than that all is good. Wages are good and always paid correctly and also paid every fortnight which is handy also.

Headless chickens management

The only good thing is salary always being paid on time.It is gatehouse security job.One guard inside gatehouse , second guard stands outside by the gate regardless of weather conditions.

Do not recommend to anyone

Very stressful job and favouritism everywhere. Managers are only think about themselves. They do not care about staff. Do not recommend it to anyone.

Not nice people

Management and team leaders are not nice people and are clueless. They have no idea about how to treat people well or motivate them. There is a very negative atmosphere and culture.

Brilliant workplace

Brilliant company to work for great management who work with you and help with anything that is required. Regular contact with welfare visits and training.

Bad management

No training, have to fight to get your holiday pay, work life balance is a joke. Can't put all the blame on Bidvest as these problems were here when they brought out Axis. They will also cancel your holidays at short notice and come out with rubbish that they are at full capacity and don't have enough cover guards.

Pros

None

Cons

Everything mentioned above

Depending on your site you get

Not really a bad company to work but has had too many managers who don't know how to do their job never mind training their own staff. They promise you the world and treat you like dirt. Some managers haven't got much experience and just want an easy life and they don't care about your wellbeing.

Pros

No perks

Cons

Long hours and broken promises
