Long hours sometimes finish 12 hours then asked to do another 12 with no break in between quite dangerous really when you had to travel to next location, as long as you do what they say fine but the company isn't loyal to there staff.
Pros
Left alone
Cons
24 hour shifts

They use telemarketers to harass you by phone ,Kingdome do not put remote interview on AD and do not respond through indeed .Once on there call list you will need to switch your phone off which is no good for night shift security and security on 24 hr call .Kingdom is unaware of the needs of the security officer to have rest and they do not send emails nor text to arrange appointments .Just rude arrogant inconsiderate ammeters causing a nuisance .They do not know our Security industry and it is better they stick to cleaning vacancies
Pros
no pros, it's a complete disaster
Cons
Failure to exercise professional etiquette, just cowboys/cowgirls

I have worked within the security industry and public service for years, my understanding was that when the SIA was introduced the industry would be much improved weeding out companies like these, non professional and only interested in money making, standards would be much improved and staff would be properly trained and paid as a professional. That hasn't happened.

Kingdom Security is not what you think it is............ it is not actually a Security Company it is a job agency and that is all.They are very deceitful when it comes to advertising jobs online, they basically create Click Bait and that is all. They will advertise a certain amount of hours per week, they will tell you if you are a security officer which store you will be working in every shift.......... and where. However when you get the employment contract to be signed, if you bother to read it, it does not state your job role. They state they can give you as little as 0 hours or indeed force you to do well beyond reasonable hours per week. They also state they can change your job role at a whim and insist not only you have to work anywhere in the UK but also the World. Complete and utter madness to sign such a contract and I refused end of. Keep well away from companies that decieve minimum wage workers unless of course you are a desperate shirt filler.

After working for this company for just over three years, I can honestly say it’s been a weight lifted of my shoulders leaving! Targets are how they work! You are expected to get 5 a day and if you don’t they will threaten you with an improvement notice! Wages are never correct! Pay rises only happen if your management or you get a promotion, bonus is spoken about but never seen in wages! Goal posts are changed weekly, no interest in staff safety, head office staff are rude, not a child friendly firm, hours change at the direction and you are expected to just change your home circumstances, not reliable, working on a zero hour contract by far the worst experience of my life they promise you everything but nothing is delivered do not be sucked in by the talk they talk.

Things were great here at the start I’m not going to lie, then I started to meet and get to know the bosses, it’s a horrible company to work for the bosses don’t give a *#@t about you and they set you up to fail, no plans for the future just false promises I wouldn’t Recomended working here to my worst enemy, they hand out disaplinerys For struggling employees getting to and from work because of this lockdown and leaving a near half hour early or wait 2 hours for a train or simply walk 2+ hours home or to work, I hope everyone sees this before applying please don’t
Pros
Not a single thing
Cons
List is to long...

The abuse went on for several days/month Sanctury asked to get moved from site because they felt I was not safe there no more I agreed thinking kingdom would get full time place but only got 8 days of work for whole month. Worst company to work for in terms of they don’t look after security guard

It's a joke company, honestly do not even think to work for them. Minimum pay 8.72 MANAGERS ARE LIARS, YOU CAN'T TRUST ANYBODY IN THE COMPANY, you have to use your own car to visit other sites and never get any money from them to cover your fuel expenses.
