Avoid

One of the worst companies I have ever worked for no one has a clue what’s going on I once booked some holidays which were granted and then they called me up asking if I wanted over time and I was the only one able to cover due to them not having many sites up here, told them that it was my site and my holidays, always came on site unannounced trying to catch you sleeping as I worked in the middle of no were, supervisors were clueless and never in uniform

Pros

None

Cons

Everything

We have a number of contracts in and around Leeds !!! Maybe you weren't suitable for any of them and yes Supervisors do attend unannounced and check you are awake and working !! THATS THEIR JOB

My wife is much more happier

Since starting with Duval my wife has been happier as i get paid more for doing less hours and as my wife is happier that makes me happier we have more time for holidays and walks

Pros

I have never laughed so much

Since starting on a contract 2 years back i work with a team of lads and girls who make me laugh so much going to work is enjoyable and that shows me there isn't no stress working for Duval , i work with a team of 18 people security guards and cleaners and not one of them have ever complained about the job , pay , pension , holiday , uniform some of the lads should be on stage they are that funny

Pros

barrell of laughs

Pros

Excellent Training

it was a shock

I was shocked when i started with Duval that i actually received a contract of employment before i started with the company , i have worked for 26 years in the security industry and never received a contract of employment before i started and some companies i never received a contract at all, since then i have been well looked after by the management and my pay has been pretty much correct all the time , The helpdesk could be better but i never talk to them really as i work the same shifts , overall pretty satisfied with this lot , the ladies in personnel are really nice and helpful and have sorted issues out form me from the home office, never met the big boss but i heard he's very tough , so its probably best i don't i have 5 years left to retire so i hope i can stay with this lot if they keep the contract

Pros

good managers

Cons

i would like more money but who doesnt

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?

Rude. Disrespectful. Liars. Scammers.

If you have any self respect at all, do not work for these people. They are proper cowboys with poor upbringing and no ethics on how to talk to or treat people. Poor working conditions. Pay issues nearly every month. You are better off working in some factory packing sausages or something. Trust me.

Pros

nothing.

Cons

everything.
