Useless management and organisation

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have worked for kingdom for over 6 years on and off, since I started the company has expanded beyond its own control and it shows. There I no organisation by management because they have no clue what they are doing with very limited experience within their fields, their control center is a joke and will constantly call you as they cannot get staff because people realise early how bad it is. Pay is rubbish and management cannot say no to the client so expect more and more work without extra pay with zero opportunity for progression.

Pros

None

Cons

Pay is rubbish, no organisation, management with no experience

Awful company that works you insane hours

Difficult to find the right words to describe the way this company works and its attitudes towards staffing levels and training. I was in charge of a team of disgruntled security officers whom were trying to perform for a demanding client who had no confidence in my superiors ability to deliver the service they required. Team members were constantly pressed for extra shifts due to recruitment issues and having non site trained external site officers dropped in as cover officers just to make up numbers, then not paying the officers for time they were forced to work on top of rostered hours. I have never been able to find anyone to say good things about Kingdom since leaving.

Pros

None

Cons

Excessive hours and no interest in teamwork or staff welfare

A progressive company

I’ve worked for Kingdom for 4.5 years in both a distribution and retail security role. Rates of pay are above average on the sites I’ve worked. Any minor issues with pay are rapidly resolved. Management are approachable and helpful especially where personal crises arise. The nature of the security business often necessitates a flexible approach from both employees and management and I’ve never found that I’ve been discriminated against if I’ve said no to additional shifts.

Pros

Subsidised works canteen, colleague discount in store

Cons

Long hours on occasions

Well run company

Started a year ago and have been completely satisfied with the job. The care shown by management and the control room proved to me that they truly do care about the front line staff. Would recommend this company to anyone looking for security work.

Pros

Respect, wages, hours

Cons

None

Challenging But Awarding

I have worked for Kingdom Security (Retail) since October, Since working here it has been challenging at times but very awarding knowing that I play a vital part in protecting and supporting the colleagues and deterring theft from store, Kingdom has been a great company to work for even after hearing stories and reading reviews I’m pleasantly surprised with how supportive management have been, At first I thought I was going to be in a relief guard position but since working here I am now a full time guard working 44 hours a week with possibilities of gaining extra hours.I would definitely recommend working for Kingdom Security and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with a proactive and productive team.

Pros

Pension, Discounts

Exciting & Fast Moving Environment

Kingdom Services Group is a diverse and exciting workplace, with my job role being fluid and giving me the opportunity to develop and learn. Kingdom also offers free apprenticeships and training to its employees which helps further development and learning. Kingdom is a fast moving environment and always keeps me on my toes!

Pros

Free training courses and apprenticeships

Fast paced place to be!

Kingdom is not for the faint hearted - they are clearly very passionate about raising security industry standards and as such, will not stand for work shy people. It's fast paced and the work ethic is strong. I've always had communication from HQ in a timely fashion and support/ guidance when needed.

No time for yourself

started with kingdom in December. Management change your rota at short notice giving you less than a day notice. Doing very long hours 16 hours a day 6am-10pm for Monday Tuesday and Wednesday for a few weeks they would rather you work and work than spend any time at home. On average I’m on 240 a week but because I don’t drive most weeks I need to get a taxi to work which cost 14 pound each way 28 pound a day out of wages that leaves me with 100 to myself every week. When your ill management still try to get you in for shifts because they are that short staffed (tells you a lot about the company) as yet I’ve not seen any pros in this job. If you apply for this job don’t think you can spend any time with your partner or family every day off I get a call about doing a shift when you do around 5-6 days in work already. Management can be ok if your doing what they ask but if you say no because you can’t or something cropped up they will have a go at you. Anyone doing this job good luck

Working for kingdom

Easy interview system, they offered me the job right away, very impressed with the uniform and the amount of items that were issued, you get paid every Friday and so far I havnt had any problems, all correspondence is done via email and it's difficult to get through to actually speak to someone on the phone, overall I'm impressed by the company

Pros

Paid lunchbreaks, good uniform

Cons

Not enough hours and a zero hour contract

Worst decision of my life

Avoid like the plague. Too many chiefs not enough indians. A small company that got big too fast. A combination of bouncers and keyboard warriors. Got into the habit of buying other small firms out and ruining whatever reputation the existing staff had. Then they got thrown out of liverpool when they tried to issue fines to people for littering. Mainly targeting smokers in the city centre. Bad contract. For a company that should specialise in retail security they've taken a few wrong turns and most of the good staff have escaped.

Pros

Good comradery between depending on who you work with

Cons

Modern day slavery

Avoid at all costs!

They will get rid of you straight away if you don’t hit targets (6 a day) avoid at all costs you are expected to follow smokers and wait for them to throw there cigarette on the floor. Management is the worst I have ever come across you do not need to give your details to these people if you are approached and if you refuse there isn’t anything they can do about it they say you’ll receive a bigger fine or ring the police to scare you that’s if you refuse just tell them to f**k off and walk away it’s that simple they are most corrupt company/job going.

Pros

None

Cons

Everything!
