Wouldn't bother

Easily the worst company I've ever worked for. Constant circular emails re office hours and contact but "the office" deem it ok to message/phone you in the middle of the night requesting a shift swaps/cover shifts etc..Constantly having to chase up correct shift pattern which hadn't/hasn't changed in years. Used to be done automatically in the background but for some reason "the office" decided to give themselves more work and do it manually and often wrong.Constantly having to chase up correct working hoursCompany would deduct £ for a 2 mins silenceConstantly attempting to move site based operatives in order to suit their terrible planning of casuals/reliefConstant circular emails re Focus Topics and training that (A)Isn't required as part of SIA licencing (B)Has little to do with any sites operated on


After chasing up with UK HR, the company paid me my remaining holiday entitlement to the penny after I left.


Everything, go work in a supermarket.

Is a decent security company. Pays on time and usually without mistakes. The negatives are the usual, low pay and long hours. Plus not many opportunities to develop your career.

Just another company

Always got paid on time, some managers have some issue. You just realise you are another number to them. I moved on after few years. Some sites are good, some are bad. It all depends on luck and connections if you have. Paid the bills.

Great team and management

Management that takes time to speak to you and actually have a care for your home life and not just work. Job is easy enough and was given plenty of training. Members of staff are great to work with. Only negative is that the pay could be better

Undervalued Subject: Expression of Disappointment Regarding Work RecognitionI am writing to express my deep disappointment regarding the lack of recognition for my contributions at [Company Name]. Despite my consistent dedication and hard work over the past year, I feel undervalued and overlooked.It's disheartening to invest significant effort into my role, only to sense that my contributions have not been acknowledged. Whether it's [specific projects or responsibilities], there seems to be a disconnect between my efforts and the recognition I receive.Constructive feedback has been minimal, making it challenging for me to understand how I can improve or contribute more effectively. This lack of communication has added to my frustration and sense of being undervalued.I believe there is untapped potential within my skill set that could greatly benefit the team, but it appears to be overlooked. I had hoped for a more collaborative and appreciative work environment.I sincerely request a more thorough evaluation of my contributions and a dialogue about how we can improve communication regarding recognition

Avoid St Ives

Site and customer were fine but Securitas have now lost this contract after poor management. Securitas went through 16 staff in 3 years of having the site and never had a full security team 6 days plus a week with barely a day off. Just be aware that securitas lost all their contracts in Cornwall on some really good sires as well their management is shambles.

OK but long hours

Long hours and pay is average due to the competitivness of industry.Clients hold all the power. The job really depends on which site you work on. A good client can make all the difference.

Lots of courses available for development. (Both internal and external courses) m. Pay on the low side. Lots of diversity. Good team culture but not much recognition from management

Productive place to work

Worked for securitas for coming up 16 years. Never had any problems, pay correct 99% of the time, no real issues, only thing I'd say is managers don't seem tomlast long, had probably as many as years I've worked for them

misserable people

This job is going to drain the last bit of your happiness , there is a big variety of staff with different mental issues and unable to do even the most simple tasksmanagement will treat you like an object and whatever you suggesting they will do the opposite Apply if you got no life and low IQ and of course if you want to do stupid hours at unsociable hours

Positive experience

To be fair, securitas are a fine company to work for. Good employee benefits, upper management is friendly and fair. On the flip side some of the site supervisors you will be working with in person can be challenging to deal with.
