Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall not a bad company to work for. Management is a bit of a joke. I once waited over a month for my manager to reply to my message. He doesn’t reply properly now. My shifts get taken off me for no reason, without anyone telling you this. You have to wait 20 minutes plus to get through to the call centre for anything including reporting an incident or sick line. If the control centre ring you and you don’t answer (even if you are at work) they put it down as no contact. You are moved from store to store, so you don’t know who’s barred and who the local shoplifters are.The company is crying out for staff but won’t give you much work.

Pros

Work during Covid-19

Cons

No contact, Bad Management.

Good and lots of work

Its ok company with some advantages. Area manager was ok and helpful and I was given a decent amount of shifts every month if I was willing to work at short notice and travel long distances.

Pros

Cons

Some time can feel over worked

No Respect no life

if your looking for a company that's none appreciative, liers, awful team members then this company is for you all I got is abuse from staff members, false accusations and when the time came I was thrown under the bus for all the mistakes that happened. You work long hours basic pay and a lot of work to do that's to much for the money you get paid.

Pros

Payday

Cons

Long hours no social life

It was Okay

Cordon Security is not a very organised company. your line managers is not interested in helping their employees. When employee is ill and wants to go home because he or she cannot work. Cordont will charge them fine because they are ill.

Decent pay

The hours are very long and unsociable. A typical day involves you turning up at the site, taking over from the officer and dealing with a range of issues. The management wasn't too bad as there's always room for improvement. The hardest part of the job i guess is the long working hours.

Pros

Decent pay. Way to make good money whilst not being under pressure

Cons

Unsociable hours and loneliness

Go nowhere job

If you want a job that will go nowhere and minimum wage this is the job for you. Only 7 hour per week contract. Very rarely see you're manager, can never got hold of someone at control room may be on the phone for 20 mins plus. If you work retail you get asked to do one thing at the store and Cordant want you to do it another way. Iv seen guards ask to leave store as they didn't like them, just for how the looked. You need to stay on the stores good side as they control if you stay at the store not Cordant, if you get asked to leave that's you're hours gone Need to watch you're back as other guards will try and grass you up for nothing and brown nose management. No support, no help, no nothing. DON'T WORK FOR THIS COMPANY. Only thing that I would say is good is that the staff at the stores are brilliant to work with, made some really good friends.

Pros

Good staff at the stores you work at.

Cons

No help from management, poor pay, no chance of progression

shocking company

Shocking company to work for, area manager you see once a blue moon and when you ring them they don't answer. The company want you to do one thing and the store another thing. No chance of promotion at all. pay is minimum wage, if it's you're day off they ring you up and put pressure on you to do a shift somewhere. I work 6 days a week and still get phone calls to work my day off.If you're face doesn't fit in the store you will be gone iv seen this a few times with other guards. The only reason I'm with this shocking company is to provide for my family as soon as I get something else I'm gone and I can't wait for that day to come. STAY AWAY!!!!

Pros

Good staff at the stores

Cons

Long hours, poor management, poor wages, shocking hours

Not Bad

I have worked for this company for a while and they seem good. The management are not bad either even-though there is room for improvement as its the case with many companies. On a daily basis, i enjoy most parts of the job but the long hours are a killer.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Long hours
