Disappointed

manager is a cocky person who tells random people he's the manager, always expects you to cover shifts, we were also promised work after Christmas so I stayed instead of joining mitie, and they would say mitie staff are mad they're losing work to us, all lies now I'm unemployed, don't waste your time

Didn't feel part of a team

Work politics, it was mostly staff I was working with on shift that gave me the bad experience .I have had the same experience in other security roles , didn't feel like a team .

A fantastic forward thinking security company

Secur-it is not just a guarding company they offer various security solutions for clients. There is a variety of job opportunities within their business from Elite guards, account managers, administration assistants, installation engineers, cctv controllers, projects managers, sales team, plus many more. A great company to work for offering opportunities to develop oneself within the security industry. Listen to ideas and keen to move with the times introducing new state of the art products to offer a bespoke service to our clients. The negative reviews were a while ago secur-it are going from strength to strength and I am proud to be part of the team.

Pros

competitive salary paid on time

Elite Security Officer

It is very unfortunate that Mitie have pulled out the contract for Sainsburys from Secur-It, as I really enjoyed working with them. Management is upfront, helpful and efficient. Pay is wonderful and paid on time always. Excellent company and well managed.

Don't do it

I would not recommend accepting a job with them, they treat their staff poorly and you can never get hold of management. Zero hours contracts so you just have to hope they can find you some hours.

Bolton site

After working at secur it for a few weeks what I thought would be a great job turned into something else. After now waiting over 2 months for my payment I suggest anyone going for this job with this company look else where. As am still in process of getting my payment but being Ex forces this company is very UNPROFESSIONAL!

Cons

12 hrs shifts

Terrible company.

Terrible company to work for, avoid going for a job at this company. they expect all from you but don't want to give, they will not pay you on time, take money off you unlawfully threaten you with no work being zero hour contracts which is basically the sack if you try to phone in sick, the list goes on.

Pros

none

Cons

Not a good company to work for

I worked for them for over a year. They only took me on because they could find nobody else to work over Christmas. The only good thing I can say about the company is they pay on time, but then a lot of companies do. The management is not flexible in any way, they expect you to do work miles and miles away even if you rely on public transport, and they don't even pay for breaks. not the best security company around so look elsewhere if you have just got your SIA badge, in my opinion.

Pros

None

Cons

Expecting you to jump when they tell you to. No notice as such.
