good

I have been working for phoenix for a year now and I must say I have enjoyed my work there a lot but the pay is not what it should be for you putting yourself on the line every time you go to work other than that I cant fault the company.

Pros

good guys, nice venues.

Cons

low pay no holidays

Treated me fare

I was with this company for 3 years I got extra hours alot of the time mainly cause I was reliable pretty much favourites get the hours my wage was good but I know alot of new starts get low balled now there management is all over the place someone new in charge every 6 months u r easily replaceable but that's the case with any security company overall I didn't have many issues with this company hours can be a problem

Pros

I was always treated fare and paid on time

Cons

Hours and mcdonalds

good

Working with phoenix is brilliant management try to help you out as much as possible if you are 100% in the right at first you pay tax and national insurance however if it is your only job and you send off your p45 (which can be a ball ache) but my area manager handed it to them personally in the end. it is a great job and a great team to work with no cons maybe the fact of not having more hours and more days working apart from 2 days a week

Pros

honesty

Cons

Not enough days working

Worst company

Illegally deduct money from wages! Pay well below other companies! Hire useless foreigners who arnt good at their jobs.. MD only thinks of himself and his expensive cars (paid for by our illegally taken wages). Much better companies out there such as T3 phoenix will be bust soon as they r messing venues around! Stay well clear unless u r desperate for a pathetic wage

Pros

Good lads to work with

Cons

List is endless

Good place to work if full time hours isn't what you're looking for.

Although my time with phoenix was short due to moving abroad it was probably the best job I ever had, Perfect for me as an at the time single man with very few commitments as the hours were generally evenings/weekends only giving me all the free time I could want. A tough job at times, You're dealing with drunks and wannabe hard-men after all but I had a good team and we kept the peace and in general the locals liked us.

Pros

Short hours, above min wage pay

Cons

none really if you manage your expectations as far as how many hours are available

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?

A fair company to work for

I learned a lot about how to manage different situations involving customers. All the other Door Supervisors are fair and understanding. Trying to get a hold of the area manger was a hassle and trying to sort uniform was a major hassle.
