The Fourth Reich

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A company adorned in it's own self importance, a senior management team of yes men/women and a structure built on pure nepotism, massively lacking in integrity. A huge organisation with a small company mentality

Pros

Some great people sadly working for such a poor setup

Cons

lack of integrity and encourages poor behaviour in order to advance

Security

Would never work for these again. They never get wages right and then you spend weeks chasing it up. Absolute joke company and they treat you terribly. Managers are rude and clueless. Definitely stay clear of this Company.

Pros

None

Cons

Shocking company to work for

Having to constantly watch your back with office and senior management. They would rather stabb you in the back instead of trying to support you. Some one needs to remind them there's no i in team work. Avoid - there's other better companies out there

Pros

Isn't any

Cons

Bad senior management

Rubbish company

Company is useless. You work overtime and dont get payed. Senior supervisor is always sat on backside or smoking her head off outside sky building. No stock to do job properly and no decent uniforms. I suffered mental health issues and got no support which has left me feeling worse.

Pros

No

Cons

No

Experienced Security Officer

Unique & varied role covering around 10 stores. The role teaches me much about myself. My role is often challenging, both mental & physical, but also rewarding when a theft is successfully prevented or when potential conflict is overted. Building good working relationships with Store Management & Police is important. My hours are contracted to 45 per week, however overtime is always available increasing my income, £21-23k pa easilly achievable. Also I recieve double pay for Bank Holidays, pretty good for a Security company. Personally I have had no problems with my pay, but I always keep a thorough record of my hours so I can easilly identify any errors. Job security is also good, Yes the shifts can be long & very tiring, & yes homelife / social life takes a hit. This is not an easy career option, & not a job for everyone, but a job which demands a large element of self organisation & determination, but the rewards are there! The Security Industry is a people using industry. The company needs to fill shifts, that is its prime concern & yes to a great extent you really are just a number. The secret is to use the situation positively for you. For me, my career in Security gives me much, including the ability to support myself & provide for my family. So the using can work both ways. A career in Security can be full of surprises both good & bad, its how you accept both as a person that will decide if its for you. Is Mitie perfect? No. Would I recommend working for Mitie? Yes. My tip: Do the job & have fun!

Pros

Good industry pay. Unique role. Can be fun.

Cons

The mental & physical toll.

Most honest review you'll read

Where do I start with this shambles of a company. Get paid for 6am to 6pm shift but in actually fact you have to be on site 5am until 6.30pm. No shift allowance. Work either a 60hr day shift week for 2 days off, or work the 3 - 4 shift pattern of 3 days, 4 nights, 3 off, 4 days, 3 nights, 4 off Your expected to wear the clothes you take home in an active radiation area unlike any other company on site who have to wear special clothes, mities answer for this is that officers don't touch radiation, they seem to ignore the fact that we touch people who do touch such stuff and so we can still get contaminated. Management are under qualified and only have their positions because either their face fits or via default. A normal night shift in the sites main office is one quick drive around site, order take away, watch a film and then sleep. They thrive off of conflict, and sit planning how to cause the next clash of heads between officers, but hate having to sort it out if they have pushed it too far. They employ everybody and anybody! And I mean that, if your lucky enough to fail an interview, that's ok they will offer you another and make sure you get it this time. Display psychopathic behaviour and threat others? Brilliant your now a supervisor. Decent wages, but you give up your life and soul for it. If standards management see you smile or being polite to the customer, your getting pulled up, but if your walking around in worn out uniform with holes in for months they don't mind because "a uniform order has been put in" or "they are changing supplier"

Pros

You may meet a few nice people

Cons

Long hours, lack of management, lack of employee care

Outstanding place to work! But is full of babies.

I dont know how the management team copes.with some of the idiots who work for them. I mean if your joining a job in the security industry 99.9% of the time means long unsociable hours! Hats off to the management team who have to deal with idiots that dont realise this, and create fictional (yes fictional!) Ailments/reasons why they cant do the basic of tasks/hours and create more work for their already hard working colleagues. My experience with Mitie was great! I came to work, worked the hours, done the job, and got paid a small fortune for my troubles. Cracking! I dont think that anywhere can be the perfect place to work. But i do think if this management team can weed out the unnecissary complainers, the unwilling workers, or the compulsive liars, i think that it wouldnt be far off. If you are looking to join. You will work long hours, you will be out in the rain, you will be expected to do your job. And if that is a problem then the solution is DONT JOIN!

Pros

Great pay, plenty of work, progression availabilty, secure job.

Cons

Picking up other peoples slack, recruitment not strict enough.

Avoid at all costs

Worst management team I envisage I will ever work for. They are all friends who promote each other (none of whom are suitable for management roles) Uniform is of the lowest possible stanard, equipment is poor, no recognition for a job well done brutal hours almost impossible to take your annual holidays, pay often wrong, company is only bothered about squeezing every penny possible out of the workforce. Almost impossible to loose your job as management standards are so low and they are too incompetent to enforce them properly

Pros

Pay

Cons

Everything else

people i met have become good friends.

The management are absolutely useless and are no help when needed. A " pass the buck" approach is clearly at play! They dont care about their employees unless your prepared to slave away for them and they dont care if you have family! Would never work for them again.

Pros

Making good friends

Cons

No life / work balance. on your own with no support.

Great wages, little to no support from management.

Well paid job with the chance to make many friends within the industry, however management and payroll are extremely poor. Wages are often incorrect, and uniform is very very difficult to obtain. Management also have very little interest in your wellbeing and personal life, you can easily become a victim of your own success i.e it seems you can gain job security by performing poorly and doing the bare minimum. Very frustrating place to work if your used to working hard or making any type of effort.

Pros

Friendship and reputation building.

Cons

Incorrect wages, impossible to use your holidays, little or no uniform, constant harassment from managers who can’t cover shifts, unreasonable requests, no regard for wellbeing.

Mitie drowns in its own size

Mitie became so big management can't handle it anymore. Mitie bought our small security firm and the contrast was huge Operation managers came and went .. lot of pressure for them Our salary was unbelievably low and sickness was not paid. You feel not valued at all

Pros

Lot of staff

Cons

Management lost control

Don't approach this company.

I was working my job plus a vacant spot they could not fill sometimes 6 days a week for months on end. They told me it's expected of me. Management only interested in themselves and getting up the next rung in the ladder. 0 hour contract. When i resigned was told I had to give them notice. I laughed and said read the contract.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, no breaks, rubbish pay, lousy management.

Company is a joke

Tupe transfer over. 12 months after that redundancies happened unsafe place to work. Expect a lot for the shocking wage they pay. Pay was wrong some months and also overpayments other impacting every month until I become a team leader. Didn’t have tools for the job no contract and they still say it’s legal

Pros

The other officers and stores you work

Cons

Bad company worst ever in 20 years
