Sacked with no warning despite being best officer on site
Corporate Security Officer (Former Employee) – Royal Tunbridge Wells – 14 June 2017
10 guards at my site, I was the best by far, 1 sat with his feet up on the reception desk, on camera seen by management, nothing done! 1 smoking in the office, on camera nothing done, 1 always late and sleeping on the night shifts, evidence seen by management, nothing done, I could go on! Then u have me who worked in a team of 2 and only lived down the road, it was quicker to go home eat dinner and go back then to pop to the shop, baring in mind it's late the site is secure and empty and the other guard is on site and more than happy for me to go eat as he used to eat his pack lunch and watch TV for an hour or two, so one night I go to eat, have a major family situation to deal with, short story is I was off site about 2 hours but the guard didn't phone so all was ok but management found out and instantly sacked me, no meeting no questions nothing. Not even a chance to explain what happened. My family 👪 became homeless we lost everything, whereas the guy who used to sleep all the time is still there!!! I was happy at corps until this and had no support from my superiors. Not even the decency to text me or anything. Disgusting and I would have taken it further had I not had to worry about my family and children. Oh and I was the least experienced guy but was training and showing others how to do certain aspects of the job.
To be honest I loved it till this happened.
No support when it counts, management all out for themselves.
