Poor Managment Avoid

Terrible atmosphere at this company , too many lazy and complacent duty managers who are not interested in the staff .Newcomerss are not made to feel welcome and they will do everything to stop you getting your leave days when requirerd and your shifts will be less come the following month .If you raise any concerns or issues you wiĺl not be listened to.And there is no confidentiality from management who thrive on the gossip culture .

Pros

BBC scotland location has great transport links

Cons

Dont ask for holidays they dont like it

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

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
