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

Sometimes great fun mostly routine

It was an easy job but found the local management micro managed the day to day business and sucked the fun out of the job. The national management was a lot better.

Pros

Light duty good training

Cons

Long hours very political atmosphere

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

Interacting with people and seriousness when necessary

I had the chance to work in different sites to another, meeting new people and learning more skills. The management is not very well adjust due to the shifts rotation. My co-worker are very approachable and welcoming. The hardest part of the job is that there isnt enough shift nowadays. What i enjoy most is that i havent got any disciplinary siting on all of my career.

Pros

meeting new people and learning more

Cons

not enough working shift
