Good management structure and the owner lee is always on hand to help

Good company to work for some of the jobs are rubbish but in general it's good and you learn alot and you rarely bothered from anyone which means you can get on with what you need to do without hassle

Pros

Good managment

Cons

Long hours

Poor company worse ever

Worse company ever worked for. They don’t care about you what’s so ever. They try scam people out of wages and holidays pay. Don’t pay on time either, if you due to get paid on 15th each month and it lands on Sunday. They pay on Monday which makes it 1 day late!!!! every other company I’ve worked for would pay Friday not 1 day late. Very rude people to speak to on phone. Thank god im away from this rubbish company. STAY AWAY OR YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLE IVE HAD! they also send ya last wages in a cheque to make you wait them extra days for it to clear!!! Stay away

Pros

Isn’t any

Cons

Pay late. Pay last wages by cheque !

Official response from Duval Security

23 January 2019
Your contract of employment states you will be paid by cheque if you don't return all items belonging to Duval FM , maybe you should have read the contract before complaining and we cant pay you on a weekend , No one can !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lowest of the low

A disgusting company to work for. Not enough space here to write everything. Apply at your own risk. Any self respecting person would not work for these cowboys. Appalling working standards. Wearing suits and driving a fancy car doesnt make one smart or intelligent. It takes decent upbringing, which these lot obviously lack.

Pros

none

Cons

Everything

was unfairly treated

was made to do split shifts morning - night I got on well with some of the control room but company never really treated anyone fairly I got on well with a lot of the traders and management hardest point of the job was if anything extra was put on the sites like events and we was not informed by the management of a site we was under full responsibility of anything what I learned is always make sure the manager of a site makes sure that they inform your company first before anything and to bend the rules on some occasions.

Pros

n/a

Cons

silly shifts
