Horrible company to work for.

Twice they took me on for a contract as soon as contact ends you get dumped because they have no more work for you. Absolutely ridiculous I would never go near them again. Manager was a total horrible man n that's me putting it politely.

Pros

Leaving

Cons

Falling for same con twice

Scheming management

This company schemes to replace guards who are at post with their own people after they take over a contract. They also charge emergency tax on tgeir workers instead of putting their tax code straight. Management are unhelpful and are rather looking for opportunities to fire people.

Pros

None

Cons

Bad account managememt

Excellent company to work for. Very proffesional.

It is my belief that Corm Vigilant is one of if not the best company to work for here in London. Any problems are dealt with immediately and in a very professional manner. Always willing to listen and oblige whenever possible. I would definitely recommend this company.

Bunch of crooks

If your face doesn't fit you get no shifts, forcing you to leave. They all think they are managers but they aren't. They disaplin you for the smallest thing. They deduct wages before you get them. They remove the log book when things go wrong.

Not good but could be worse

Not the best company. If you want to get your 4 days off on your 4 on 4 off contract u might as well say bye bye as you will be gone in no time. Dont expect any praise or thankyou as you are just a number to them. On the plus side... you never see them they only show up when theres an issue.

Slave drivers

Not a good company to work for if you have not got a forces background the management are very predjudist and there is a bully culture at this company . They think they are tough guys and if you dare go against them you are in for trouble as they close ranks . There is no respect from the management to the workforce and think they can treat people like in the army camps These reviews that give a good company review must be from themselves as it is not true.

Pros

None

Cons

Troubled company where management live in the clouds

Sort of an easy job at night

Day shift can be hectic but day goes by quicker. Nightshift can be soo slow so make sure you have a book or movies on a drive to pass the time between patrols learn to read astronomy as the stars are your company till morning be sure to count up your hours

Pros

Easy enough work good if you'r a loner you will have lots of you time

Cons

Can be a bit boring if its not busy wages need to be checked and counted against your hours

Enjoy going to work

I am still at Croma Vigilant and I have been there for nearly a year and half, I am enjoying it. I would stay here as long as I can but if something good does come my way I do not mind going for it.

A good mix of daily challenges

Great working environment, hands on training, very competitive pay rates and the people are just great! The corporate culture is relaxed while there is a major feeling of being a part of a team. The company mission statement is clear and it seems that all employees really are there to help people find jobs in their own way. Expectations and goals are high but the support is present to help all employees achieve set goals. Management wants to help their teams succeed.

Pros

Competative salary

Cons

Long commute
