I enjoyed my time working with them.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I am only allowed to work 16 hours a week, they adapted to this instantly and the manager is really friendly and welcoming.If there was a problem with signing in or anything relevant, there was always a member of the team I could text or phone. The issue would then be resolved.

Pros

Very quick response time

Cons

Having to prove myself constantly via video links.

Brilliant place to work

FGH is a brilliant place to work, from the top level of management all the way down to the newest steward, everyone is all about the end product, a positive customer experience.As with any company of this size the odd bad egg does slip through the net, but once identified they are dealt with appropriately, be that further training in the first instance or in extreme circumstances removal of that staff member

Pros

Really positbe workplace and ethos, the development opportunities on offer and second to none

Cons

Long hours, but this is not hidden from you, this is one of the first things i was told about at interview

Great Experience

I titled this review “great experience because that’s all I’ve had while working with FGH, the management of the company are amazing people who will really look after you and have your back, but due to the nature of the job be prepared to work hard. To be honest you want to work hard cos you know your working for a bunch of great people.

Pros

Paid Lunch breaks, getting annual leave is an easy process and they really protect your time

Cons

don’t like standing you might Not like but you’ll defo enjoy the ppl you work with, that’s about it really

Dynamic

Shifts are never the same. Helps develop customer service/communication. Management nice but sometimes unhelpful and not respondent. Comradery among stuff. Best part is meeting new people. Worst part is sometimes working with incompetent staff (interviews should be tougher).

Do not believe this company's hype!

On boarding was great and then it all went down hill from there! I'll simply list the issues I experienced. • Lack of management engagement, support, and consistency. • Frequent and regular breaches of data protection. • Cover ups of assault against staff members with no follow up or aftercare

productive fun to wok with

fgh have some great events that I have been involved with and has thought me a lot. As a security guard I have been giving variety. the main one I enjoyed as a responsivity is safety of customers to staff to artist and guest visiting the venues that I worked at.

Enjoyable and professional place to work.

Friendly and fun place to work. Long hours, but they were enjoyable. Given lots of responsibilities. The management were very good and supportive, there was a real effort to integrate new staff. Family culture. Over the festival season, were part of a team that kept 5 million people safe.

Pros

Free lunches, free travel, good communication from management.

Cons

working away, lots of long travel.

Rewarded for hard-work

They provide security services across many different venues across the UK. If you show potential and can work on your own initiative, you will soon find yourself climbing the company ladder and given better roles and positions.

The hardest part of the job

It was fun to start with going to all different festivals and then it got a bit worse if you were just a steward like myself the people with licence SIA AA they took the mickey out of you. You worked 12-hour shifts sometimes more 8 in the morning to 8 at night or 8 at night to 8 in the morning it was different all the time I'm I remember doing a 20 hour shift and that does knackered me out

The work is varied and fun and I have never seen another security company in the UK look after the employees like FGH. You can speak to anybody regards any issues that may arise from your supervisor to the company CEO who is right out in the fields working alongside you

Pros

Great support, great staff, great benefits

Cons

You if you leave it’s hard to work for another company
