Security Officer (Former Employee) – Manchester – 26 January 2017
Working as a zero hours contract increases flexibility in balancing work/personal/academic life, however supervisors had personal preferences for allocating jobs to staff they knew and liked over other members of staff reducing available opportunities to select shifts around academic timetable.
Additionally supervisors at a famous football training academy would call within an hour prior of shift commencemetn to be undertaken and if unavailable to take the shift at the "last minute" supervisors held this against staff for future shift selection and allocation. Overall poor management and supervisor skills resulting in less professional and more personal management styles.
Flexibility in job and shift selection for zero hour contracts
Management / Staff relations creating unequal opportunties in shift selection

Security Officer (Former Employee) – Manchester City Centre, ENG – 16 November 2015
You can get lucky and get a good site. Good shift pattern if lucky again. Can be easy money. Job security is good. Advance to supervisor is easy cos no one wants it. Beyond that , no chance. The biggest problem G4 has is the management. I have never meet so many true psycho's. And I was in the army. Join if you want, take your wage and avoid any manager ever time
