Ok to work for. However different venues, different pay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have worked with Elite for 3 years. They usually only have door work so if you are willing to work weekends then great! Sometimes they do have mid-week work but its little/ none.Managers are ok and easy to get on with but they do like to take there time. My area manager is quite responsive and does get things done.Everyone knows everyone else so its easy to get on with everybody.The hardest part of the job is dependent where you are based but they put you were you are most comfortable but if you want a busier venue they will look to accommodate.Overall, there ok to work for. Just check wether your employed/self-employed as they like to try move you around and not tell you this information. Days off are usually granted if given well in advance.

Pros

Responsive management

Cons

Certain venues low pay

By far the best security company to work for!

Elite is the best security firm out there not only is it just a job they welcome you to their family! I have never had a security firm that had any office or management staff on the front lines before, Elites back office staff AND owner are our regularly to ensure that not only staff are doing their job correctly but to support them with anything they need. By far the best I’ve experienced!

Pros

Great team, great leadership

Cons

Unsociable Hours (but that’s why we do the job)

Good company

One of the best Door Supervisor company's I've worked for, easy going as long as you get the job done, great managers and regular shifts, expect to work pretty much every weekend but that's standard practice with door Supervisor positions.

Pros

Good managers

Cons

Should concentrate on static security contrqcts more to up hours for employees

Good Company, though promises not kept.

I find Elite Security NW a good company to work for, however I was made promises that have not been kept regarding the amount of hours I would be working. There has been no professional training or development. Also little to no communication or support from area manager.

Fun and Flexible

Very good work ethic and always looking out for one another. Co-workers are friendly and always willing to help. Hardest part of the job is staying vigilant when nothing is happening but gets easier with experience.

Pros

Free Soft Drinks

Cons

Mostly Night Shifts
