Overall very bad company from management and control room.

Brooknight is a very bad company to work for they expect all the guards to drop everything and come to work whenever they ring you even on days off.Pay is not great they treat all guards like nothing its zero hour contract .When someone off sick or be late for shifts they expect the other guards to recover the hours without any notice the managers will just change your rota and expect you to work extra hours.They dont pay any extra on bank holidays just normal fixed rate while they are getting double for each guard on bank holidays from ther clients.Managers are rude some of them have no experience of security what so ever control room staff are the worst they are very rude and get personal with you .Even when you are genuinely. sick they call you a lier the way speak to you is unprofessional and they will take £50.00 a day even if you are sick .Overall very bad company to work for one of the worst.

Pros

Ok for someone just starting retail security experience.

Cons

Long hours bad management treat guards bad very unprofessional.

Avoid these sharks

Where can I start here ! 3 months on I was still on the wrong pay rate , numerous emails & calls to correct this were ignored, payday arrives & not payed for correct hours, payroll, personnel & management phones & computers must break down as all goes silent when contacting regarding wrong pay although a colleague managed to get theirs payed eventually but not me.Add hours to your portal without notice for extra shifts, you work those hours & they don’t pay you for them.These aren’t mistakes, it happens to often to be mistakes ,be very careful of a lot of these security companies as they are cowboys on the take ready to stiff their own guys come payday.Awful company please avoid if you have any self worth.

Pros

None

Cons

Missing pay, all weekend work for some not others, management & personnel go awol when there are issues

Could be better

If Brooknight spent more time on the recruiting of guards instead of just taking them on because they have an sia licence they would be good company to work for, at present a lot of the guards they take on are lazy and can’t be bothered, the ones who just sit at the podiums or in camera rooms on their phones, guards with DS badges using cctv, the DS badge doesn’t cover public surveillance, DS can use cctv to monitor for any damage to property or identify a trespasser, Brooknight are a third party they are not in-house security, if a shoplifter went to court and they found out a DS had followed them on cctv and stopped them the case would be thrown out, guards complaining about store managers, most prob because they’ve been told to get off their phones or nipping outside every 5 mins for a ciggie, Brooknight seem to go through a lot of managers, they never seem to last for long, there are no incentives for guards to remain with the company, there’s been no tap on the backs for frontline guards working through the pandemic, the rate of pay is lower than the Primark shop floor staff, pay has always been correct with no issues, there are worse companies out there, Brooknight just need to start recruiting the right type of guard preferably with a CCTV licence and not the wasters who just make the job harder for everybody else

Pros

Pay is always correct

Cons

Take too many lazy guards on

Unprofessional Company

Brooknight Security is a company with many problems they have issues keeping managers and guards.A typical day working for Brooknight is a casual however your constantly watching your back be it the site management or other guards. Managers vary but most look at you as a number and do what they want and dont care what you may have planned for the week even after having a rota for over a month, they will also call you and borderline harass you while on holiday.Each site you work at is different there is no uniform standard and each guard is out for themselves and they will try to get rid of you for even the slightest issue just to get brown nose points with a manager that last six month at most.

Pros

plenty of work hours

Cons

long hours - constant harassment from management

They treat the staff like dogs, they hire incompetent people as work partners and then complain the work being done isn’t good enough.

They fire guards and get in incompetent partners who they then sack a few days after, and then complain about the quality of work even tho the work is being done by the people they hire. The pay is terrible, long hours, management barely communicates.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Nothing
