Not the best place

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

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.

They have to many places to fill and not enough staff me and others were constantly left on doors by ourselfs with no back up. Every place I worked the managers of the bars had nothing but bad things to say.The pay always goes in fine and there's no shortage of hours

Not as promised

You have to pay an insurance premium out of your wage which is low in the first place. At interview you apply for a corporate security job after a week of working for the company you are diverted to other types of security. Constant promises that you will get full time security work which never materializes. I got a rude message after telling them I was not feeling well and could not attend. Difficult to get a uniform from them.

Pros

You are not on the dole.

Cons

I believe I was discriminated against and was getting the bad sites most of the time.

Avoid at all costs

Worked with securigroup for a year until i found something else and all i can say is it wasn't worth it! Pay is terrible put on 12hour nightshifts for minimum wage and harassed if i missed any check calls and not in a "we want to make sure you're alright way" in a threatening "you will be sacked" way and control are a bunch of c***s happy to stab you in the back. Management hide behind texts it's a struggle to get hold of them unless they like you.

Pros

None

Cons

Wrong pay, ignored by management, lies by management, guards have no clue what the word equality means, some guards stealing or just going home during shifts, treated like a number not allowed a social life.

excellent place to work

Couldn't ask for better staff to work with doing long hard shifts are very hard and am normally knackered but having staff that support you and make the shift bearable makes this a lot easier

Long standing employee

It's been an excellent company to work for. My manager is really understanding and I would like to thank everyone at the company for believing in me. I always tried my hardest to get things done. I have a confidence problem that made me thing I couldn't do it right but with the support I've had I proved myself wrong. If you put your heart into something you can accomplish anything...many thanks for everything.

Pros

great management

Finally an improvement

Working as a corporate officer I have seen many managers however I have finally managed to get manager support. He visits site regularly and offers his time to everyone. Speaks very highly of the company and is honest with feedback. The company are great and can honestly say I am happy in my role. Looking forward to progression and working with an excellent team

Pros

Support from Area Manager

Cons

security guard

company is ok runs on zero hour contracts which should be optional as not everyone can afford to be in employment that doesnt need to worry about giving the employees enough hours to live on

Pros

well known employer

Cons

over populated with employees with not enough work to give fair amount of hours

Terrible Hours

On most occasions you only get a few hours notice for a shift. And if the job requires long travel you don't get compensated. So if there is a football game far away for example Edinburgh i would have to get a train to Edinburgh spending around £20 for the fare and around 2+ hours travel. And the pay for the day would only be the 2h of the setup, game and closing on minimum wage.

Pros

None

Cons

Multiple

Interesting Workplace

During employment at SecuriGroup, I have learned a vast array of skills and knowledge that will help me, such as; Customer relations, Customer service, Problem solving, Teamwork and Communication skills. The hardest part of the job would be the ever-changing environments that I have to work within. The most enjoyable part would be meeting new ad interesting people from all over the world and different walks of life, understanding/learning about different cultures.

Pros

Team Working and efficient workplaces.

Cons

Unsociable Hours

very good place

Day to day job was doing security around London and making sure that everything was intact and locked. I learned how to secure some places in parts of London regularly. Management was good and pretty well organised and co-workers were very outgoing. The hardest part of the job was the long hours. The good part of the job was meeting new people. Leaving the sector to work as an electrical engingeer

I am in this job just to make ends meet

I have been doing this job just to make ends meet. With this just I was able to study while working as a security guard so that I'll be able to pay for my rent and bills. My ideal job is in the field of Computing and Technology.

Busy,Productive,Social,Fun.

What I like about this role is that your not stuck in the same place all the time theres always different events and areas to work, it also has some good perks like seeing different events some of last years include The royal highland show, TITP, Glasgow2014, The ryder cup and of course football games and concerts.

Pros

Different events/area.

Cons

work is not guaranteed.
