It's easy to apply. they have video interview. they might call you to explain you the next steps about submitting documents. they use parim app. you can choose your shifts. the app shows the duty time, pay rate and the notes contain the instructions. Your work may need you to stand for long hours with our without breaks.

Pros

zero hour contract, easy work

Cons

long hours, travel time to work, not a lot of work available

Best security company in Manchester

They are supportive, understanding and really do value you as an employee. No matter how busy they may be with new contracts they will always take the time out to listen to you make you feel heard. I’ve met some great employees through out my employment. Pay is always on time, no uniform deductions and always opportunities for overtime. They use a great app which helps you track your hours and payments and it also offers chance to apply for other work they may have available.

Pros

Great management team.

Place of excellence

It's a nice place to work if d schedule of work is first come first served, not that some people got work before you got and your schedule will never be accepted on parim

great place to work

As a door supervisor I was responsible for the safety and security of customers and staff in venues such as pubs, bars, nightclubs and other licensed premises or at public events. I spend most of my time at the premises' entrance, checking the suitability of people coming in. This may involve checking that the person is not underage or carrying any harmful substances or objects, such as drugs or weapons. In some cases, I was also checking that customers' attire meets the required dress code for the venue or event. To succeed in this role, I had to make sure I had excellent communication and interpersonal skills, A polite and courteous manner and a good level of physical fitness.

Flexible

flexible work when you need it with competitive pay, however, there was often a lot of waiting around which suggests the organisation wasn't the best.

Pros

free lunch, flexibility

Cons

lots of waiting around

Worst company I ever worked for

Bad communication Disorganized Cancellation of shifts over the sudden without notification Do not pay for extra time No respect and devalue their staff They end contract without notification Never stick to their promises Never replies to messages, emails or calls They pay to late every 15th of the month and if you even worked before that they try to delay the latest shifts until the 15th of the 2nd month which literally takes 2 months to pay. simply they try to play with the wording and the system to delay payment which is so frustrating. They want you to travel so far and do not pay fuel, parking and no free transport too. I do not really recommend this bad company to anyone so keep away of such subcontractors who only look for money and have no respect for staff

Pros

NONE at all

Cons

All in all is bad

Challenging and rewarding

A typical day at work consists of providing excellent customer service to customers in order to ensure satisfaction and maintaining customer safety. I have learnt how to prioritise tasks and how to deal with aggressive situations effectively. The hardest part of the job would be the hours as this can be quite tiring, however I find the customer interactions the most enjoyable and reward myself when we get repeat satisfied customers.
