Mixed workplace.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
In terms of payment, I never had an issue. In terms of communication, they were not really great, I was assigned one store for a year and thought I was the permanent guard but then I got moved without being asked. The actual job is ok. But it feels you are less and less empowered to do your job because supermarket management can be a mixed bag. They can back you up or make you seem stupid by not following procedure.

Avoid this company!

If you can, avoid this company. In the Control room are lazy people, managers are irresponsible, no support from HR, and payroll doesn’t do their work properly, you have to call HMRC by yourself to clarify things, because their payroll staff don't know elementary things, and also the irresponsible staff. Every normal and responsible person who I knew working for this company left them. Because if you are a diligent, responsible person and looking for a workplace where your efforts will be appreciated and you will be treated with respect, this company is not for you.

Avoid at all costs

Almost no training, no communication, no one to one's, poor uniform, constant wrong pay.Then you will be punished and threatened for the smallest of things.

Pros

Area manager is a nice guy but overworked

Cons

I do not have enough time in a day to talk about the cons.

Get ready to be ignored

Job site is great, customers and staff really friendly, company ignores your phone calls for days on end, trying to get in touch with area manager is a no go as he never answers phone calls or messages, salary is horrendous compared to the staff at the site, 17 year olds get paid the same as the security guards!!!!

Easy going, slow paced.

While there, it was fairly clear no advancement, especially on my site or if you could not drive. The site didn't pay a practicularly good wage either.

Constant calls on day off

The job itself is good depending on your location and building a rapor with staff of store you are In. However kingdom management is we're it all goes downhill constantly called on days off to go in even if have just worked alot of 12h shifts in a row, rota changes without being notified, promises about shift changes that never happen, so if do decide to work for company just make clear your shifts etc before start.

Cons

Communications

Do not work for kingdom

Kingdom are a terrible company to work for. The control room never answer their phone, was sent the wrong sized uniform 3 times, the 3rd party guards they send are beyond subpar - bordering on downright dangerous, management don't care about you or your safety and would rather side with the client than stand up for you should any issues arrise.Constantly having hours missed from my paycheque and they even try remove days off your holiday allowance without your knowledge.There's lots of security companies out there, don't go for Kingdom.

Good money, easy work.

Easy to work for, money is brilliant. Haven't had a single complaint yet. Easy to communicate with, whenever there's a problem they're there to help solve it.

Pros

1 hour lunches paid. Good money.

Cons

Work alone.

Worst company

Kingdom is by far the worst company I have ever worked for. And I don’t just mean within the security industry, I mean worst company EVER. Total lack of organisation, total lack of communication and total lack of leadership. More interested in boasting about new contracts than handling the ones they’ve got. Appalling rates of pay too. Avoid at all costs.

Pros

None

Cons

Everything

Work place is good with what is required there.

Excellent promotional prospects, senior management willing to listen. Salary is fair but could be a Little better. Great workplace culture. Hardest part of the job is reacting to emergency situations and covering those late requests. Pay sips issue has hopefully now been rectified.

Avoid

Avoid at all costs. There are better companies out there to work for. They don’t care about your welfare. You are just a number to them. The wages are also very poor and people can do much better than earning minimum wage

Pros

Getting away from them

Cons

18hr shifts and only 7hrs between finishing one shift and starting the next one

Not a good company

I worked here for a year and I have to say I this is the most stressful underpaid job I’ve ever had. I ended up leaving after I was harassed by another colleague and almost injured due to an incident. I had no support from anyone and I have to say the poorest management and support.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Long hours on your feet, no support from anyone including managers and staff.
