Bad all round most of the time

Based in London job, abismal communication, paid wrong or late. Not valued or listened to. No real concern for health and safety, lacking on ppe and uniform for all types of weather. The pay was sort of decent but not worth the stress you have to go through on a regular basis.

ops manager were first rate but the MD an arrogant

I had an interview with the ops manager , she was focused on the paper work at first and then stepped through what was expected ,I felt this was a professional company but later felt the MD was of poor character ,It was like dealing with a spoilt child that had not developed any social skills ,I got TUPed over and politely asked if they could send a conformation of the holiday i was entitled to ,And he got all petty and personal, really low calibre of person ,the kind our industry should leave behind until they learn to act with some dignity and grace

Pros

no just snooty arrogance

Cons

Well the con was the first rate, ops managers made us all feel like one team, then the child MD, throw his toys out of his cot

Worse Security company in the industry

Worked for Duval FM for 6 months as part of TUPE. Worked on my site for over 13 years as Site Supervisor and along came this poor managed so called security company. They couldn’t provide the customer or their security officer with service which in fact is standard procedure. The contract manager has no security experience at all in fact comes from background of pest control. Her English and grammar was terrible and had no knowledge even to run this proactive site let alone get basics right. Whenever something went wrong it was always security teams fault not managements. No wonder all officers still work here and management don’t.(that’s saying something) the MD is just a jumped up little man, gives the whole big talk but can’t do notning. Offered him loads time to come see me but think he met his match. Another guy that has no knowledge to run a business let alone so called security company. I can go more and more but will be here forever. I’m glad my time finished with these waste of space company and actually now working for proper corporate security company. Most good reviews are bunch of lies on here I had first hand experience of these. Someone that looks after 8000 people and has over 15 years of security experience can clearly say Duval FM is by far the worse company out there.

Pros

Nothing at all

Cons

Everything

Official response from Duval Security

23 January 2019
First , you've never looked after 8000 staff and we know that for a fact as you've been a Security Officer all your career and not a Operations Manager or Director Secondly , you made no effort to work with Duval FM and worked against the company since day one and we know the reason why !!!!Thirdly, it would have been helpful , if you didn't actively criticise every body at Duval including your own Security Officers whilst you were in our employment Lastly if you havent got anything constructive to say , Whats the point !!!p.s i see your wages were correctly paid and on time ,
