enjoyable workplace with understanding management

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I started working as a fire marshal from Sept 2017. I was an officer in the Camden area doing night shift. This was post Grenfell tower, they needed officers daily which meant you can work 5 to 6 days. It was perfect for me because I already had the hustler mentality and was not discouraged by the hours. My managers were approachable and understanding. PAY! The site I worked at was ÂŁ10 and they never underpaid me or made errors like the previous company oi worked for. If I was unsure about the days i worked my manager would have a tracker telling me exact days i worked for that month. Uniform White shirt, black trousers and black shoes. Holiday Once I accumulated enough days i handed a holiday form and it was processed quickly. Providing the is requested 4 weeks in advance. Flexibility All of my previous jobs i had a contract were i worked Monday to Friday. However being on 0 hour contract it gave me freedom and flexibility to deal with important things like dental appointment. I honestly enjoy working for the company and that is mostly because my team get along very well, no tension, awkwardness or back stabbing. As they say Team work makes the Dream works

Pros

Amazing team that made the shift enjoyable

Cons

uncertainty of contract

Not a good company to work for

Not a good company to work for, the pay rate is not good and the manager is very rude. Their was a time they weren’t given me shift and I started working for another company. They Croma wanted me to do a shift for them and I told the manager that I’m not available, and the manager got mad and told me that, they dont need me.

The ex-military professionals!!!!!

The company slogan is "the ex-military professionals" - This is not the case where I had worked. If you are a veteran joining this company then you will be deeply disappointed and offended by the actions and words of your work colleagues.

Dont go near this company

Unless your in with management don't waste your time as you'll be treated unfairly and bullied by the Manager and nothing gets done by the company. One person is favoured and dictates the shift pattern, u do rotational shifts for minimum wage and they are incompetent at their events.

Pros

None

Avoid at all costs - Especially CCTV

I worked in the CCTV Department on the Camden Contract for just shy of 2 years. I have never worked for a more incompetent company. The 'Management' structure was non existent, leaving CCTV staff to manage themselves, the roster and explain to management what we actually did and the security patrol team as well as fielding calls from residents with zero training in handling stressful calls or clients and then getting disciplined for not using the training that didnt exist. On top of this the client who runs CCTV is an ego-maniac with little to no respect for staff, having been told myself if I dont like it tough, I'm replaceable. The woman is a detriment to the service. Essentially you are paid ÂŁ10.56 to watch people get stabbed or worse and arent even offered counselling once you've witnessed traumatic events. At one point after joining the union, I was called outside and intimidated by the company CEO and told I was becoming a problem as I had joined the union and was urging other staff to do so. Avoid this company (especially the Camden contract) at all costs! The CCTV team is made up of some excellent officers who deserve pay to reflect their importance to both the service and the company.

It's All in the Team

What made my work place pleasant honestly is my team mate. I worked in Fulham and Camden and had very good experience. I noticed few people complaining about management and to be fair that can relate to every company that's just the way of life. They pay a good rate and never made human error to my payslip which is a big deal for me. Imagine working all month and constantly get underpaid, ultimate worry. work environment plays a big part, my team get along so well it makes the shift a lot more easier. It's genuine real friendship without the feel someone is backbiting. I would deferentially recommend people to work for Croma. I have to confess already recommended a friend.

Pros

Amazing Team

Cons

4 in 4 off that changes weekly

Bad place

managers like to think they are in the forces they make you work long hours bunch of bullies in management. you can not have breaks or eat when on the work premises so if you have a 12 - 16 + hour shift it is hard lines if you are hungry. it was a awful company to work at not interested in staff welfare

Pros

nothing

Cons

everything

Good wages, terrible management

Worked at fort kinnaird for 6 months. You're expected to be maintenance/cleaner and security, micro managed by centre management, security managers couldn't manage a coherent sentence nevermind a security team. If you're not a "yes man" I wouldn't bother applying as you will be forced out the door eventually, very clique and at times more focused on traffic management than customer safety or criminal activity. Wages are decent but you do sacrifice alot for them in terms of routine and hours, they tell you you'll be 4 on 4 off but it never works out that way. Rather lamppost in boots than work another day at fort kinnaird.

Pros

Plenty of hiding places

Cons

Management, rotas, hours, yes men staff.
