Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I got the job because I worked for the previous area manager before and she asked me to join. It’s only weekend work so not enough to live on but it’s extra money to top up my salary. Always paid on time but occasionally it’s not correct. Don’t get payslips but always work available. There’s been sometimes I haven’t had shifts but that was because the area manager left but after a few months the new one called me up and I work every weekend. Been a few hiccups along the way but otherwise ok. I do get sent all over the place. Would like to have a set venue, otherwise fine. I have a cp license but work on doors of venues on weekends. A lot better than my other retail security job (I work for 3 companies)Can be stressful when there’s an incident but that’s part of the job. Generally no problems working for bridgegate. Some of the staff are lazy or not good otherwise fine.

Pros

Free food at most venues, paid on time, plenty of shifts available

Cons

Not always paid correctly, have to request payslips

I worked there

I worked for them for a short time. It was a fill in job. I did not enjoy it. Just like ensuring I write a minimum of one hundred and fifty characters for this review, which I don't want to give.

Pros

They paid me

Cons

No communication

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

Good Company to work for

Typically the team begins at 10pm, my colleagues and i are supervising the clients as they are queuing. Removal of intoxicated clients from the Que and inside, breaking up any fights that occur, detaining miscreants for the police and administering first aid to any victims of alcohol and violence. As a door supervisor my primary role is to limit any confrontations on the inside and surrounding areas by refusing entry to clients who are known to the staff as trouble makers and anyone compromised by alcohol. All persons seeking entry to the clubs are requested to show formal identification as proof of age. We are there for the safety of the public and our fellow members of staff and have to be ready to deal with any situation as it arises, secondly to ensure the club makes money by having a safe and happy atmosphere where clients are happy to stay.

Pros

working with a good team

Cons

not contracted hours so subject to weekly changes in salary
