Work place has a good atmosphere

As a receptionist, you get to meet new people everyday which is great. cuts out the boring routine. There is a team of 5 receptionists across two buildings. We all rotate between the two doing different shifts

Productive at work

One of the best security company I have worked. The management and the staff are very good and has helped me in shaping my career. The over all is good and is recommendable to anyone. The organisation have now emerged with Knightsbridge security and is controlled by Interserve.

Management is a joke

Decent pay rate and good professional sites. But "upper" management is a joke. Constantly changing managers and nobody is informed. They look out for one another and make fake promises for staff. They favoritise and do no care about officers who work long hours.

Pros

Paid lunches

Cons

Long hours

They are a tremendous company to work with.

FSG is an upward looking company that is always driving you to excell in your working endeavours. Working with them gave me a huge experience on how to see diversity as a very strong point. I enjoyed working with them on the BBC site in Central London and if another opportunity arise, I will work with them again.

Pros

Good pay rates

Cons

Less training courses

Awful company to work for!

First Security is a terrible company to work for because their management is absolutely clueless! They are very bad at communicating, they have no personal skills... Do not apply for a job with them! Don't waste your time! Avoid at all cost!

Pros

None

Cons

Scurity Officer

Worked with G4S Security at TheO2 in North Greenwich. My duties are patrolling the site both internal and external, Gatehouse duties and dealing with visitors and members of the public and other security related duties. I enjoyed working there.

Terrible employer

Do not work for this company - they are a bunch of con artists who will use every trick in the book to steal your pay cheque from you. Account managers are lazy and useless Control Room and Resource managers are lazy and incompetent.

Pros

Good

There are positive to say about KGL and few negative too. Salary is good however I was tube transferred from First Security who set the Salary in my work place not KGL Management is not good. uniform delivery is poor and they rarely listen to security officers requests and feedback one good thing with KGL is the Webex database which shows your duties and the days you worked at anytime you want, you just need to login and can see your job information online.

Pros

Webex system

Cons

Poor dealing with security officers

A joke as all security companies are.

High end? £6.50 p.h Pmsl you supply guards who can't speak English.guards who can't be vetted because I'm sure some bloke in Poland or Mogadishu is going to confirm the correct details of some random guard you took on and supplied. But in fairness in companies pay peanut's, they get monkeys.

Pros

none

Cons
