Outstanding security company to work for!

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Joined a team based in fleet, quickly learned who I was working with and what they expected and from then on tried to progress which happened nicely! Always supported by my area manager and head office. Moved on from head door a while ago but still go back to help.out and earn some extra every so often. Fully recommended company to work for.

Pros

Clear objectives, always supported, paid on time every time

Cons

Providing security in night clubs and pubs

Working from 9 pm until 2-3 am on Friday,Saturday nights mainly but also some Sundays prior to Bank holidays and nights during Christmas.Smart appearance required but coat, tie and high visibility jacket provided by the employer. Free parking behind some night clubs available. Opportunity to meet all types of people from all walks of life. As a security officer you have to carry out body frisks, check handbags and toilets for knives and drugs. There can often be first aid emergencies and you need to be prepared to contact the emergency services. There can also often be some challenging behavior which you may have to deal with. However there is good team work and organisation to help keep everyone safe. You may work inside and also on the Door.

Bridge Gate security

The area manager can be arrogant and patronising. Don't ever think that the venue you are placed at will be your prement venue as he will move you around venues which will change your working hours. They remove £7 off your wages for insurance without telling you and have to jump through hoops to claim on it. The self implode payment manger is exactly the same as the area manager and think they are better than the other staff. You will be constantly under staffed at venues and don't bother trying to phone the area manager he never picks up but will get ahitty with you if you don't pick up his phone call

A good starting company

I fell really safe where I work the team that I’m working along side are all friendly and helpful , as I’m new to the security Industry I am very grateful for all of the help and guidance that I get from the team that I work with . The wages is always in your account when they say it will be there . There’s always good and bad points for every company but for me they have helped me get my experience that I need I’m grateful to them for giving me the job opportunity as they have taught me so much over the time I have been with the company. You are on your feet a long time but nothing you don’t expect doing this sort of work

A good support network

I worked for Bridgegate for 9 years in Notts and was mainly happy. The pay was on time and the hours available. Only left as the venue's were squeezing the hours and not leaving much to work for. A good starting company with good support and training.

Pros

Good payers

Cons

Area manager changes

Never dealt with brigegate directly.

During my contracted position I was working a busy Cardiff nightclub and was thankful for the experience and the opportunity. Overall I haven’t got a bad thing to say about the company as I never spoke direct with them.

Pros

A nice wage.

Cons

Nowhere near enough hours or respect for their relief staff.
