Good atmosphere

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have worked for cordant twice .I enjoyed it but needed to move on .second time there was more seasonal and once it changed it was time to go elsewhere. I would recommend giving them a go as like military service some people love it and others don't.

Pros

There wasn't any

Cons

Long hours and travel.

Pretty decent

If you do what you’ve been hired to do you will have no problems with management tbh. Just like most other jobs you have to know who the bad apples are at management and avoid them as much as you can.

Pros

Job selection

Cons

Pay could be higher but it alright

Disgusting Company to work for

Whilst you are at work you are constantly being monitored by the site security manager via cctv and your always under threat of losing your job and your so called work mates stab you in the back. They give you a 0 hour contract and threaten you with if you don't work overtime we will cut your hours down to nothing and there is no work life balance and this is the same story of all security companies I know I've been around I think the best remedy for this is to get out of security work all together it is a joke

No stability

Always get moved on it seemed. a High staff change over I had no problem with cordant management just the store management of matalan who had an employee waiting to replace me I didn't give them the satisfaction and moved on quickly.

Not the best but definitely not the worst.

As far as security companies go they were not the best but a far way off the worst, as with most security jobs the pay was poor hours long and management and support non existent.

Pros

Paid on time

Cons

long hours, stressful and no support.

Dont bother

Dont bother for more than 6 months. Good to get starting experience but no good as a career. Staff are under paid and management is non existent. They are also known for terminating contracts an stating staff as AWOL just because you turn down certain shifts.

Pros

None

Cons

Low pay. No management involvement. Unhelpful and rude HR staff.

Typical Retail Security

Basically after getting the job nobody bothers with you if you do job correctly. However if you don't there are some retail staff that will speak behind you to your manager.

Pros

You are on your own

Cons

Have to deal with rude and racist customers

National Drama Center

I have done work with few other companies . But this is worst company I ever worked with. I had conversation with few cleaner as well , they are working for this company and 95% of them said. Cordant is the worst company they ever worked with. If you say this is day light robber company . It's 100% true........

Pros

Nothing free

Cons

Long hours

Company is a bunch of Gangsters.

Would only work for this company if you are truly desperate for money. I'm still owed sick pay/holiday pay and trying to get through on the phone to payroll is an absolute Joke. You are simply just a number when it comes to companies like these and that's all you'll ever be even if you're the best at catching shoplifters. Just a stepping stone on to a better job if you're desperate enough to get the experience.

Pros

None.

Cons

Long Hours/No life/Holidays all rejected.
