The management and operations manager are self centred. No matter how problem you have on site or with sit manager they will take side. And the colour

management is better but pay structure does not increase regularly. Workplace culture is okay but it depends on the site you work and the management you work with.

A thin veneer of trust and good intentions. Once you get settled you start to notice the cracks and the dirt pushed under the carpet. The company is a fast paced company with high staff turnover. Salary is reasonable and the opportunity is there if you are willing to turn a blind eye and knuckle down. Operations are slovenly and unsympathetic. Business come first, leave integrity and honesty at the door, you wont need them.. Rules are side stepped, scrutinise everything, keep hard copies and hold fast to any dignity you have. Culture, really why do they portray themselves as having one. Old management left over from the beginning weigh down the company and hold it back. Those at the top either never get to see it, or accept it. Want the money, don't really care, this is the job for you then, got to start somewhere right. Good luck. If you look hard enough, there are some good guys here, but most have no choice.

I have to say after being here a short while that this company has a great working culture, it supports you to develop and makes you feel like you are part of it from day 1. If you are looking for somewhere to work to progress your career and expand your skills and knowledge, this is the place to be, you feel like you are part of something that is going places. I very much enjoy working for Ward Security Ltd.
Pros
Working Culture, break out area

Worst site manager I have ever worked for, worst turn over of staff due to poor management on site and from the main hq Manager onsite is two faced and moody and very childish,I have lots of security knowledge but was never allowed to use it as the manager felt insecure and that was a shame because the job was very easy but he just has to make it run harder
Pros
Hourly rate
Cons
Four nights on and two off, no time to see family

It was fun we were allowed to walk around not just stay in the office. I did many different jobs which made it interesting everyday. I opened up making sure I counted out the cash register for the day and all equipment worked. I answered phones, replied to client emails, promoted company gift cards, promotional events in the mall, gave customers general mall info., Rented out wheel chairs, handled customer complaints, and learned a little Japanese, Korean, Thai, and Chinese. Very demanding physically. Management was young as well as co-workers. Most enjoyable part was meeting all the multi-cultural customers and putting a satisfied smile on their face.
