Ideal for some but not for everyone

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good place to work if you don't need a definite number of hrs per week although shifts are usually available for those who turn up for shifts/on time.You don't have to take all the shifts offered which is great if you need flexibility.It can be boring sometimes but it is what it is. Easy work, easy money and you'll meet lots of new people. Enjoyed working there.

Pros

Flexibility of shifts on offer

Cons

You'll discover the cons along the way and learn how to avoid them!!

Poor Management

This company has poor management and a culture of favoritism. Security guards are not valued and often given short notice for shift changes, even receiving calls as early as 6AM for cover shifts. If you don’t accept the last-minute requests then you will not be given any more shifts. Additionally, the company operates on a 0-hour contract, showing a lack of commitment to their employees. This is not a positive working environment. Overall, it seems that management doesn't care about the well-being and rights of their employees, and only uses them as a means to an end, without any consideration for their personal lives and schedules.

Pros

Long hours

Cons

Cover or ordinary shifts, No permanent shifts.

Selfridges birmingham..Horrible place to work

The management is the most twisted you’ll ever come across. Theirs a reason why they always advertise jobs here . The turn over in this place is ridiculous an it’s because of the management

Decent site to work on with friendly staff

Really good site to work on. Management are really good and very accommodating. Never had any issues at all. Paid on time and never a problem with pay either. If I've had any issues management have been very understanding

Pros

Very clean environment to work in

Cons

None

Not the best place

Management are childish and petty, if you can get a good one then you'll be good but from what I've seen all they do is pass on the work to someone else and ignore any attempt at contact

No work life balance

Be expected to work 60 plus hours a week, training within the allocated site virtually non existent, expect to not be able to use own initiative or question anything. Job very mundane and robotic, with very little reward. Get told when to have a break, have to ask to use toilet like at school.

Pros

Supportive ops manager

Cons

Long hours, very little reward and breaks

A good place to work

I worked night shifts for securigroup. Working alone on shift for 12 hours can drag. After 6 months, I was moved to a different site (HMRC) working alongside other guards.

Pros

4 on 4 off shift and good pay

Cons

Long hours

I've seen behind the curtain

I've been with them a long time (through several departments and roles) and there is a lot happening in the company, but the company cuts its nose off to spite it's face.Generally about SG: Doesn't guarantee hours for sites that require specific training. Then the client is angry because they get untrained staff or substandard subcontractors (they wouldn't need subcontractors if they guaranteed hours, even part time contract hours) Managers don't actually hear the staff, and can be really difficult to deal with. Ignoring holiday requests, pestering guards on days off asking them to work, being generally difficult to reach with concerns. (There are some exceptions, but a good manager shouldn't be the rare case) Managers tend to burn out really quickly, it's not an easy job and quite stressful, especially for the good ones. When they leave it takes a while before the position is filled and a lot of staff are left in limbo, and struggle to get their concerns heard, requests made, etc. The company has a large foreign workforce and there can be langauge barriers that come with that, the company can be very unsympathetic when dealing with workers who struggle with English or who are non-native speakers. They are big on training and make everyone do a lot of internal online modules but don't bother to assist those still learning english. A lot of people epecially lower level employees feel they are just a bum in a seat/ a number. Those lower level employees you have direct contact with amazing people and the reason people last as long within the company. There are plenty -

It's a job

If you have a great team to work with, then it makes for a pretty good shift. Management are a bit of a hit and a miss. Very little communication from them. Been with the company almost a year, still do not have a uniform and I know I will not be reimbursed for the one I bought myself.. All in all it's an okay job, the hours are pretty good and the wage is reasonable. Really just depends who you end up working with.

Excellent company to work for

I've worked for Securigroup (SGL) for near 7 years in Belfast and its a fantastic company to work for management are great and very supportive and easy to talk to always at the end of the phone even understand when you need time of work. Fantastic people to work with and great and enjoyable contracts.

Pros

Great management

Cons

Not enough hours

Make sure not to have a serious medical emergency whilst working for them

Or you'll be told to stop coming to work and put on disciplinary without even having a chance to explain that you were hospitalised. Management do not care about you at all and they do not back their staff up when clients express uncertainty.

Not best company to work for.

Extremely hard to progress, no clear career path. Rate not that competitive. Hours are okay and if you want over time it is there Management don't care too much about certain things. Loyalty is not rewarded in any way.

Productive and challenging

This company is the best that i have worked for. They care about you as a person and do not treat you as a number like other companies. I have been with them for over 2 years now and ive had no problems what so ever. They pay on time, holiday pays ect. They could slightly improve in there salary side of things especially for night shifts. Overall perfect company to work for without any hassle.

Pros

Excellent management, pay on time

Cons

Salary
