Management are morons
Security Officer Babcock Rosyth (Current Employee) –  Rosyth15 November 2019
Management are not interested in their workers only themselves, no support,quick to criticise. You have to check your wages every month. A lot of backstabbing goes on particularly from supervisors

Cleaner (part-time) (Current Employee) –  Barrow-In-Furness15 November 2019
Management is poor, you dnt get stock orders on time, broken equipment takes ages to repair. Management donot contact you to find out if there are any problems. There are no visits to staff. You are basically left on your own. Only contact you if there is a complaint. Wages are paid fine, but you won't get your overtime without a fight,an you cannot log into your wage slips.

Billings Data Assistant (Former Employee) –  Waterlooville, Hampshire11 November 2019
Fantastic place to work! We were like a small family. So much experience with all the individual staff members. It was a shame that they had to close our office to centralise.

Great job to help others
ACA (Former Employee) –  Kent10 November 2019
Fast pace , job satisfaction comes from helping the sick and lonely , curtainly not the work life balance or the wages. work colleagues support each other however total lack of praise/ support/ direction from middle management up. If your face fits you get left alone , the work ethic sticks as is ....total lack of communication, goal posts there are none ! the more trouble you cause the more likely of promotion!

Decent pay up to a point but cant give allocated yearly ad hoc leave
Prison Officer (Current Employee) –  Featherstone, Staffordshire7 November 2019
Pay freezes after 2 years unless you gain promotion. Also holidays dont always get given due to lack of staff and you dont get sick pay. Promotion is only if your face fits rather than skills required to perform roles.

Rubbish Company
DWP Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Glasgow, Glasgow6 November 2019
Management have no people skills, avoid this sham of a company, they are that short staffed they are sub contracting guards, they are bound to lose the dwp contract the next time it is up for renewal. The guards, most of them are pensioners and aren't interested in backing you up if any trouble starts, they need a complete overhaul of their recruitment process.

Don't do it
CPO (Current Employee) –  ALL OVER16 October 2019
THE MOST unorganized company(BOCA) I have ever worked for and with. I can not begin to tell you about the inequality, unprofessionalism, sexism and racism I've seen with this company. Let's also not start on the low rate of pay, but the managers, directors expect so much from officers. It is said to be one of the better security companies, LOL! Side note there are some managers, supervisors that do their best to work with officers, usually overshadowed by the POLITICS.
