Poor pay, borderline insulting for the work load that gets piled onto you!
Court Security Officer (Current Employee) – Lincoln, Lincolnshire – 25 July 2017
Minimum wage for working in a court with potentially volatile people, people off the street drunk, high, looking for trouble and then we are expected to find time to fill in numerous pages of paperwork, carry out our patrols and other duties, and then end up having to do jobs that should be down to court services but they would rather palm it off onto us than do it themselves.
Use us as handymen when it pleases them because they are too tight to put a job in and have to pay for it!!
Ludicrous workload and hours, for peanuts.
Cant say management is any better either, Barely a concern for anyone's welfare, just protect their own back.
long stressful days, peanuts for pay, badly managed by both G4S and the courts, achievable work loads.
