They like commitment and flexibility

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If you show a professional attitude, wear the appropriate uniform provided for each job, and show an interest and flexibility, you will get more out of the job. You can say 'no' to work, but as SGL is in a growth stage at the moment, they need as many staff as possible for as many jobs as possible. I believe you get out of it what you put into it.

Pros

Variety in the work, great team

Cons

Some work is only offered at short notice, so flexibility is needed to take advantage of some shifts.

Terrible employer

Very poor management who don't care about there employees and very bad pay. Boring job overall. Terrible atmosphere in jobs the wage isn't worth the hassle you get from customers and management especially when drinking water is considered "unprofessional". Been waiting months for my money back for returning my uniform in which management won't reply to any of my emails even when you leave the company screws you over. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

Everything else

Dont apply

The majority of staff is on zero hour contracts and quite a few on minimum wage which leads to no future, no moral, shifts change last minute if you don't agree you get no shifts. The CEO should speak to staff on the ground to find out what is actually going on. They also have to many managers.Area Supervisors are non existent. Just all round a horrible company to work for.I would

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours

Good place to work but poor management

I loved working for SecuriGroup, I was tupe’d over from another company and I was happy about it. Then I met the area manager for the north. A total joke of a human being and a waste of time.If you’re living in Manchester or the surrounding areas, avoid SecuriGroup, not because of the company but the manager.

Pros

Paid on time

Cons

Poor management

Not a bad place to work but improvementsare needed

The workplace is not bad, as the work was frequentBut the pay was not the best and some of the supervisors they hire are just idiots who are purposely looking to catch people sleeping even when they are not,The company could do better with progression routes and not hire everyone and anyone, hence why many people in the company are out of work and when they try to fix that they affect other guards full time rotas to make up for their stupid mistake.

Pros

If u wana sit with your baws oot then this is a good job

Cons

Long hours, no contract

Bog standard security roles and pay, Head office roles, good starter position to get experience

Worked in multiple roles. As a security guard Door Supervisor. Bog standard pay and no different to any other security company. Is cultures, what it is, in the current Zero Hours. a security role is a security.I worked mostly in head office. Which was good and bad, my department managers where excellent, can not praise them any higher, but not all departments had the same, it really depends on who is your manager, I worked in compliance and was excellent, I would say most departments where ran well and fairly. Management give staff responsibility and develop you. If you do well and stick it out with the company you can move forward. However most HO roles requires degrees, yet only pay slightly over NMW, only suitable for young graduates to get experience before moving on, to bigger better things.

Pros

Good management mostly

Cons

Poor pay, zero hours contracts

Job description & pay are good

No problems doing the job. Pay is good and work load is great too. Depending on your shift full time or part time I can guarantee you will always find help among your colleagues.

Don't give them your time!

I worked for this company for 3 months, in that time I had no support, no training, and was expected to be an expert in my role immediately. The contract says they are not obligated to give you a wage increase except for the legal requirement to maintain the national minimum wage. This, their overall attitude, and zero support structure, should indicate to you how little they will care for you. Go work for someone who will respect you, treat you as a person and not a number, and earn a wage that is fair for your role.I came down with Covid symptoms, and called 119 while on shift, they told me I had to isolate. I organised everything through the night shift control, and was approved to leave shift and head home to isolate. During my isolation, not once did the management get in contact with me or check if I was okay. This just shows to me they literally don't care if you're dead or dying, as long as they have someone on site doing the job, nothing else matters. As Security we have to pay for our badges every 3 years, and yet these joke companies believe minimum wage is adequate. We deserve more than minimum (ESPECIALLY in these times of an international pandemic) and should be paid more since we have the training, qualifications, and responsibility on our shoulderd to maintain a safe and customer friendly environment.Do NOT work here.

Pros

The walk to work helped me lose weight

Cons

0 support, joke wage, a lying manager, and no respect given to workers

Poor Management

Branch managment not speaking with Area managers, making poor decision in favour of returns not realising the impact on sites or the moral of security officers.Don't trust anyone in Management. Very sneaky, untrustworthy and a culture of lies & unfairness.
