Just a name & number

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Not much of a social life.They say they'll help you with anything you may need,but no guarantees' though.Work your contracted hours,then you get a text to ask about working extra hours on the same day.Management are slow to respond if you need time off,or pass the buck between manager & supervisor.Targets to hit with thefts & if you don't get enough,they ain't too happy

Work no pay

Pay wrong frequently, never their fault. Takes ages to sort out. Bring in petty pointless rules that just make the job harder and less enjoyable to do.

Good training knowledge and hours

I worked for mitie for a little over a year and a half but left as the site I was at was closing down, friends dispersed and went to basic patrols and greeting visitors, on the whole though mitie offer good hours and also managers are well trained and experienced so always happy to assist where needed, pay is really good and hours are very decent with a 4 on 4 off role, Progression u wouldn't know about as I didn't get the chance although when asked about training on CCTV or something else this was told as not available but then you found other staff were actually trained on that particular course so felt a bit certain ones yes you no.Other than that small issue I found mitie a great company and always offered roles where short e.g Manchester or Liverpool area, and good team environment

Very disappointed with Mitie management.

Personally very bad experience with my manager. Nasty person who doesn't care about people as you are only number nothing else. Don't ask for help you don't get any.

Pros

None

Cons

You can't enjoy your days off. Mitie control will call you all the time.

Waste of time no clarity , nothing to learn

No clear structure. Don't waste your time. Manager has no clear about what they do.Not sensible patrolling, they wanted to cover unnecessary areas all night.Total waste of time

Current Employee

Pay is very good for what we do. But there’s no human element with the company. They don’t seem to care about people’s health or wellbeing. Whether it’s their own employees or their employees families. I like most enjoy the money side of it. Just wished they cared more

Please please stay clear

Terrible company to work for. Had the unfortunate pleasure of being Tuped over to this shambles of a company after they bought and ruined VSG, Non of my T&C,s were adhered to.Work given at last minute, sometimes 70 miles away . Heartless management, forced to work after undergoing biopsy’s for possible cancer diagnosis. VSG were a great company totally destroyed by cowboys.

They seriously suck.

Don't expect any help from managers who only want to look towards negative aspects of your work and leave you no choice but to leave because they expect you to do one thing then say another. Spineless and immoral, I had a really horrible experience with them and regret every second.

Pros

Paid lunch.

Cons

Bad managers.
