A job is a job, pays the bills I suppose but not much else. Change shifts at a drop of a hat. Not there fault or problem. Manager never available when needed.

Worst company to work for you ask for holidays then they put them in and don’t pay you for them also give you shifts and make out your permanent and if you ask for a transfer to another store they offer shifts but then take all shifts of you and you have to wait to hear about any work and doesn’t help when managers are on holiday and you try phone them without knowing there on holiday they should tell you so you know who to contact I would skip this company if I was anyone else

Don't recommend unless dying for a job,poor management, no direct answers,no where to easily report incidents,no where to add expenses,fired right before furlough scheme started so I don't get enough help during another lockdown. When emailing manager about a question he started talking about How he has a life outside the job when i just wanted an answer when he's available,wasn't telling him to reply at 10pm,absolute low life

Interview was earlier than I thought it would be although I had to chase line manager up for work but when I got the hour everything seemed ok.this was up in liverpool but when I came down to work through a job transfer I found the area manager's in London to been very unprofessional and disappointing as they never seem to care about there client's need,shift are simply pass around there friends and the don't seem to care about there harder working staff members, which is a shame very very slake company to work for...hourly pay is also poor for London.
Pros
None
Cons
Area managers don't care

I found the interview session easier than I thought it would be,although I did have to chase up my line manager in order to start work,but once I was I there was plenty of shift work for me up in liverpool,it was only when I got a transfer down to London that Cordant security became very unprofessional only allocating shifts to friends and not looking after staff members that were doing a good job,was other staff were slacking and break date protection Law and god nose what else. Area manager weren't concerned with there client's needs and request seem to have to many security guards and clearly not enough work..all in all a bad company to work for.
Pros
You got uniform provided.
Cons
Area manager are unprofessional.

5 years worked on same site 4 times assaulted one serious. Management found me at fault every time even after goods recovered."Step Back" is the protocol even if the offender keeps coming at you, don't defend yourself or you are in trouble. But still get into trouble if injured!The Manager tells you what you want to hear and does nothing about it.Never turned up during my shift unless it was to "Do Training"Holidays always rejected due to "No Cover"Expected to stand for 8 hours even after injury while at work.
Pros
A Job
Cons
To many to mention

It’s a big company with false promises they do not care about you they only care about the money they are getting for you working at there sites they also want you to act like a close protection officer for £9 per hour. offered me a 40 hour contract with promises of overtime they don’t tell you that they can’t even give you 40 hours never mind overtime gave me 21 hours a week then a supervisor insisted I “cement my place” then hours will come so I listened an cemented my place in another job instead.I advise every security officer to avoid this company and try to get in a company that actually has clue what there doing
Pros
The jackets are ok
Cons

Contract says you are giving a minimum number of hours, they paint it really hard that you will get those hours, its 0 hour and the only company begging for workers yet they don't even have positions for the already hired, and will except petty reasons to remove you from a location like looking bored while stood in one place for 8 hours and they will try and get you to double shift and ring right near the end of your shift with no extra benefits just the usual wage, no additional pay for Bank holidays or Xmas and forced to work either Xmas eve or Boxing day even if you did the nights priorYou are a filler number, all fluffed and lies, Line managers are a joke, had staff from the location i work at say the company is a disaster as they fail to cover shifts and leave the shop empty and guess who gets the brunt of it when something goes wrong, YOULine manager showed up after 3 months on the site for training, handed me a book that was basically a teaching prompt and told me to lean from it had a better chance learning to code from a Lego manual then understanding that thing, believe in petty lies from store managers if one takes a disliking to you (Looking bored earned me a 'performance review') and was later removed from the position all together with no reasons ever given from a manager that was there a total of 2 hours a week and met me once

I have been with the Company from the Old Securiplan days / Advance / to Cordant -- and I'm still here? -- an old timer.! There must be a reason? There have been good days and bad but you address the" bad ones" with your respective management you would more than likely be successful and satisfied. The question of communication works both ways. Have worked with a number of different \managers over the years and have always had a positive conclusion. One thing I've never had a problem with is the salary - one could always do with a bit more BUT it's always been in the bank - you've never had to fight for it.
Pros
Management. Salary payment date.

I have worked for Cordant for nearly 4 years and I enjoy my job and my work colleagues are helpful and friendly, we all get on extremely well. Team leaders and managers are always available whenever needed and encouragement and support is always given. Since Covid19 we now work from home and I feel we have been given all the equipment, training and support needed.
Pros
Home working

This company are the worst company I have worked for they left me on a site on my own after having a mild heart attack at work the same night and then because my partner stopped working for them they then took all my shifts off me and wouldn't give me any more then while I was sat on holiday they took all my holidays off me they then don't answer they phone I have had to contact 15 different numbers to get through to anyone the managers are they don't look out for there staff they have no back bone what' so ever I also have a attachment to earnings with the court they take £300 a month off my wages but then don't pay it to the court they are such users it's unreal they will either give you no shifts or 90plus hours a week arrogant and disrespectful
