Not the best but definitely not the worst.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

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

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
Was this review helpful?

Plenty hours if you want them.

Pretty standard security role. One of the better management teams I have worked for, although haven't seen much of the manager due too the current pandemic, they are always easily reachable. The only real problem is the lack of free time due to the amount of hours worked. I have never worked for a company who approve annual leaves but don't actually cover all of them and have too call you in to cover your own holiday.

Pros

Simple Job and plenty of hours available.

Cons

Not enough time off.
Was this review helpful?

Stressful

You are just the number to them and the control is the worst if you get sick you will be bullied by them. The management never listens and will ignore.

Pros

Flexible shifts

Cons

Hypocrite staff.

Security officer retail

I worked for this company for 4 years. The sites I was at were nice and friendly. The problem is if you get into trouble the Cordant Maniger will always take the clients side and move you to new location even if it’s not your fault. The pay is a joke ok it comes every month on time but don’t think you will get much as pay is gov flat rate. No bonuses. If you won’t to get hold of your line manager forget it he spends more time on holiday than at work and when you do get him it’s what do you won’t ! All in all rubbish company stay way from them.

Pros

No

Cons

Ok
