Good company to work for. Plenty of shift work. If you're sick, they happily find cover. Shifts are mainly bars and nightclubs. Some locations are one man, 2 man door etc depending on the venue.

Pros

Always shifts available.

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.

Brilliant company.

Before I started with this company, I heard mixed reviews from people. But as always you have to make up your own mind and see it for yourself, so I did. I've had absolutely no issues whatsoever with this company! Been there for 4yrs, they've looked after me in terms of work, and it has all been very professional on both sides. They give me the hours if they are available, and it's not difficult really is it?!?! You do your hours, be part of a team, do a good job, enjoy your work and get paid on a set day, job done. It's extremely easy to get hold of someone from HR, if there should be any issues, they get resolved immediately.

Pros

Great team work and venues.

Cons

None

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

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

Was this review helpful?

Its a good job but its not for every one.

ok so id start work at ten o clock every Thur,Fri,Sat night and finish at about half past two.I go in make sure the owner/manager is ok then id sign in with the cctv,once thats done i put my other co workers in position in side the venue.we normally have a nice night were every one is happy.The hardest part of the job is if some one has had to much to drink or if there is an altercation inside if this does occur then myself or my co workers will deal with it accordingly. For me the best part of the job is to know every one has had a happy and safe night.

Pros

get to meet new people all the time.

Cons

unsociable hours to work

productive and a good work enviroment

very warm and welcoming company staff are very friendly was easy to settle in. The hardest part of the job is the late night hours but once you get in a routine it isn't as hard. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet new friendly people and to watch everyone having a good time.
