No much loyalty

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

Not as bad as people say

I've been treated good and most managers are busy but over all I've got no complaints, family life balance is good , week of backs and a week of days is decent and every second Sunday off Is good plus other days off, I would say people probably had a bad time Because most maybe let kingdom down and I say Get a rota, work to the rota , don't complain ( unless something needs done ) go work do your job It's a matter of do well Get noticed Kingdom been excellent with me and only been with them few weeks but left to get on with what's needing done Retail sides good 👍

Pros

Good pay and lunch breaks

Cons

No cons that i see

All a CON! Do not work for this company

Absolutely disgusted with this so called firm! Falsely advertised role and hours Shocking staff and rude on the phone when there’s an issue I started and ended my employment within a few days it was incredibly poor management and the contract in witch I declined was completely different to what I’d been told and offered at the shoddy interview they try and spruce up the job advertisement but in reality it’s a 0 hour contract in the fine print and make you work at totally random locations witch is not in the advertisement the company is a disgrace to the security industry I’ve reported them to trading standards your just a number to them and they treat you like rubbish! Beware and avoid! Don’t get conned

Nuisance phone culture

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

A business only interested in making money

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.

Pros

None

Cons

Poor Employer

Don't work for Kingdom - Never sign their one sided employment contract

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.

Avoid at all costs

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.

Pros

Unknown

Cons

Too many to list
