I think the company as a whole are mistaken in putting what the say into practice, which cannot help the company and there communication skills leave something to be desired, I am going to say something now which genuinely upsets me as I really want to work but not for a company like Carlisle support Services.

Carlisle Support Services as a company are great, no issues with pay or holiday but Wolverhampton NHS site is run poorly by the management in charge of that site, excluding the NHS Security Managers who are very good at what they do.


• Lack of Management Experience

The management have no previous management experience, one was once a office person and the other a security supervisor.

• Lack Of Experienced Guards

When full time guards call in sick/annual leave you’re left with agency guards who are very inexperienced and will not help restrain difficult patients/visitors when required. They often don’t know the site and a regular guard is left to do all three patrol routes, ward patrols and car park checks on their own.

• Poor Equipment/Radios/Bodyworn Camera

Personal Radios often don’t work in certain areas of the site, leaving guards unable to reach the control room if an emergency came about or reply to control room messages. This was reported to management numerous times but told there wasn’t a problem when clearly there is. Body Worn cameras are often not fully charged or charged at all and when attending incidents you’re left unable to provide evidence of aggressive situations/assualts/being accused of things.

• Company Van Is Dangerous

The company van is unroad worthy, engine light is constantly on, oil light is constantly on,no lights work other than the fog lights, brakes are near enough non existent, steering often locks. The van has been in and out of the garage but not fully repaired even tho reported to the management yet you’re expected to still

When i started all was good but after first month my wages were always wrong and had to wait until my next payday for what i was owed. sometimes it took longer as i always had to remind them. they always ran out of products needed to do the job at hand and then got a ear full when jobs were not done to standard.

If you find yourself working for Carlisle support services for their railway division, then good luck.
There is a multitude of issues within the company, if not being the overbearing management who are almost incompetent, maybe it'll be the fact that they say you're "trying to pull the wool over their eyes" if you don't have the numbers they expect you to get. The benefits aren't worth the stress, the money isn't either. If you have no other option then good luck, otherwise i'd find any other minimum wage job to apply for.
Pros
free railway travel
Cons
hours are awkward. Management is a mess.

Carlisle Senior Management are fair and the company is overall the best security based company I have for.
If basic wages were higher for junior staff, many would have a better work-life balance which is important due to the stressful nature of the roles they perform.

One or two managers do not like female mangers and will try to set them up the difficulty for them when the female staff are quick to spot their sexism

Having a stable staff is important and managers must learn to retain more suitable staff who have a positive work ethic that can only be realised by increasing better basic wages and start training programs that encourage staff to perform better.

Plenty of opportunities for advancement within the company and plenty of prestige contracts however I go to work for the money and not the love of the job as I have a young family to support and I have a sick wife who I have to care for in between shifts. What I didn't need was constant pay errors that added to the stress of life. Having to wait over a month for an underpayment of wages is unacceptable.

I worked for Carlisle at the Tottenham football ground as a 24/7 security team for 15months, I received no training and very poor management and admin and chronic shortages of staff. The quality of staff was mostly very poor with a few decent ones. And still waiting for my final bits 4 months after having my contract terminated.

Agency staff will always be treated as such at eurotunnel, paid little, blamed for everything that goes wrong and built on false promises.

The work is fairly easy but its mostly out in all weathers, certain thing youre not allowed to wear to keep warm even if the do constitue PPE.


The people you work with are the highlight, but thats all really.

Do not recommend working here, no extra pay for nights, full of kids who chock, management never helpful and haven't got a clue. Shifts each week are mixed up one week doing nights and earlies in the same week. Make you crossed trained for no reason, awful pay and really badly organised and run. The wage is bad and hardly enough money to live on, doing the amount of hours you work.
Pros
No pros at all. Awful company to work for....
Cons
Bad pay, management are a joke, no discounts on food and the same pay for working nights.

Better than most agencies but they rarely have work.
Can have very dry periods.

Steward shifts are very poor and pay is poor.

Arrangement of shifts is bad.

Not a good company at all, they lie to you none stop and the pay wasn’t good though on time, don’t even bother with the management as they are never there for you and they certainly haven’t got the work they say they have, If you smart you will keep clear.
Cons
Lies and not much work

Never says it all... Managerment have no clue could fall over his own shoe laces.... not very truthful and try there hardest to make things difficult and will change there Instructions after telling you to complete and do one thing you will complete it and they will make it out to be something else.
