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

Pay issues and unprofessional teammates

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.

Pros

Consistant in their failings and successes.

Cons

Money issues and some poor quality staff

Not bad company

Area manager is not to be seen or heard of and I guess if hears about this I won’t be needed again but it’s true. No welfare checks or support of just asking how the teams are doing. Defo seen when a problem though and very unprofessional.

Not great

As security it was always tough. Job security is at a minimum. Dealing with some issues lead to unexpected issues. It could be very socially and emotionally difficult.

Pros

N/a

Cons

Management could be difficult

Average security company

The industry is poorly regulated. Because of this many people are opting to leave the industry, which I can understand why. Bridgegate security are one of the better organized employers in my opinion

Pros

None

Cons

Possible missed payments

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.

if youve got a good team then you're laughing!

When I worked for this company there was a good team and everyone watched each others back. It depends on the venue and staff you work with but it seems everyone looks after number one on the doors now. As for the company it wasn't that bad. money could be better though.

Pros

good laugh, doesn't feel like work

Cons

money, career advancement non existant
