Average Security firm

Average Security firm, mostly retail based. I was lucky enough to work in a SOC at a well known pharmacy company. As a result my experience working would be different to most officers at the firm. My pay was good for CCTV work, especially the part of the country the site was based in(not London.) The client was fair enough but quite cheap and didn't invest in business enough to meet their high standards. Control room staff at TSS are rude, unprofessional and incompetent, the guards, especially out of hours were lazy and the control room team wouldn't chastise them for sleeping on duty etc. The guards themselves were rude and should of been sacked multiple times over. My managers were fair and worked with us well, read your contract and ask for clarification on parts as the contract both stated we'd get outstanding holiday pay whem resigning but it cannot be carried into a new holiday year and be paid upon leaving. Though it doesn't explain that well and as a result 4 days holiday wasn't paid to me when i left the firm. I tried to take this to HR and was ignored. Constant asking for overtime at my place of work to cover sickness and holiday though this is common working 4 on 4 off. This is a typical security firm in the sense that standards are low and TSS meets that, don't expect a great deal, but they're usually hiring so you should be able to get a job. Take what you're entitled to and don't give them the benefit of the doubt as they shafted me(when i gave my notice and asked to take holiday hours before leaving) and will likely do the same to you.

Just a waste of time

I have worked for octaga for a few years, the staff is always complaining and doing the bare minimum, the management is very bad, they dont listen to the officers and dont care about your well being, all is well if you do everything they say but when you stand your ground and try to do the right thing they Will make your life miserable and do everything to fire you. There is also preferences according to Race so if you are mixed Race or imigrant from another country with an accent forget it, they Will never treat you siceriously. No sick pay, very few annual leave entitlement. What a waste of time of my life.
