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.
Alright on the whole as far as security companies go, however the pay was sometimes late, in some cases it was late by a month, and in one case where I did them a favour travelling an hour from my home to cover another job for them at short notice, I worked a shift at a promised rate and received half the agreed ammount and it was 5 weeks befor I even saw that much. Some venues had teammates who were lax at their jobs, didnt screen customers well enough and at a Bristol venue a customer with a knife managed to get passed 3 staff members and a metal detector befor I searched them properly and found it. Contacting higher ups is virtually impossible sometimes, ure job and safety can be risky depending on where u go and how seriously u take ure job, and the ammount of shirt fillers is impressive, although that's a global issue in the industry now so it's nottheir fault. That being said... the company are better than most of the average security companies out there atm, they do have some employees who know their stuff and will have ure back, and they dont lie to ure face when they say they have short changed you.. they say they have and apologise. So.. give them a go and see if it's betterthan the other companies out there, personally I think their on the better end of the spectrum, even if it does sound bad.
