Horrible management

Management that are meant to have your back in situations will instead be dormant in their role, never respond to messages or make the effort to visit the staff office. Shift patterns so be a 4 on 4 off basis but have absolutely no wriggling room its their way or no way. Promises of other times being offered and overtime all depends on how far up the pecking order you are or who you no. You will work with outdated equipment i.e Stab vests the most important part of the uniform and they tend to not have your size. Workplace is toxic with plenty of clicks that in the vast majority of situations you’d question if they have your back or are willing to ‘throw you infront of the bus’ Would not recommend this job unless you are willing to never be at home

Pros

4 on 4 off

Cons

Long hours, poor management, inside clicks

Worst

This job made me feel I wanted to leave security. They want to much for low pay. No work/life balance, no benefits. If you can find something better, go for it, don’t waste your time.

Pros

None

Cons

No benefits at all

Expect To Much

Ask for to much for rate and there's no overtime rate and it's unsociable HoursSays £9.89 but in reality £8.89 an hour as you don't have the option to take your own lunch and easily spend £10.00 a day on lunch (add that up and your spending £200 a month on food and don't have a choice)They job should have a lunch allowance You never know where your going to have lunch, You could be at huge station enjoying the facilities and next day sat in a shoebox of a room eating your dinner whilst someone's using the attached toiletYour always on duty so after you've bought your lunch you might get a call telling you to deal with an incident 30minutes awaySecurity officer made to look like a police officer without the powers and without the pay rate.Because of the vetting many people fail and know they have something to hide so start being jobsworth to prove themselves and reporting silly thingsVery high staff turnover. People.tgatbstay it's because it's the best job they've ever had

Pros

Free Travel, See Sites

Cons

Long unsocial hours, Bad Hourly Rate, Two faced colleagues, No backup from BTP, No set lunch hour/area, On your feet all day

Waste of time and hopes

Worked for them 8 months, hard worker, always attend to work never missed one single day.Even attended to work with a twisted ankle and nasty neck pain .Wasn`t appreciated at all by the so called management.It doesn`t matter how devoted you are, it matters what others say and think about you as a person . I wasted my time working for them while i rejected good job offers.

Poor place to work

Attitude or managers was very poor, especially when the cleaner is a higher grade than security and dictates what shifts you are on. Managers don't listen to employees views. Lots of work place bullying and no back up from company. No stab vests yet work in a high risk area, and no back up as not allowed to work together. Asked to do nights when your going away next day. Very poorly run company. No regular shift pattern so this in turn means you have to use leave to cover shifts that you would normally be off for.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours for bad pay

Don't work here

Bad pay long hours, no bonuses, earlies and nights in same week, no extra pay for nights or weekends. Hard to get holiday you have to earn it 1 hour holiday per 8 hours worked.Not enough shifts going at the moment yet they decide to hire more people. And you only get your shifts for the following week on a Thursday or Friday so you can't make plans.

Pros

Colleuges

Cons

To many to list.
