I really like when I take up an New challenge as it's more experience to me and I learn from it and when I have executed an task I really feel happy it was an good experience working for kingdom security
Project Support Officer (PSO) (Former Employee) – Kent – 11 October 2017
Not the best of places to work. The managers really do try their best to ensure the company is run smoothly but employers actually make it difficult for them, which was not very nice. The companies main aim is not in the interest of the public but for themselves! Not a great place to work but managed to endure it.
Corporate Security Officer (Former Employee) – Manchester – 25 September 2017
well i have had the experience of working with this company and my experience was awful,you hardly seen management and the staff training and productivity was a joke.pay was rubbish and the client relationship was a shambles.no one was bothered about anything and security was dictated by people that didn't have a clue and put it to the bottom of the list when it should be a priority in this day in age. the list is endless i could go on.
they isn't any pros
staff training, being a puppet to the client, management, hours, pay, stress
Worse place i have worked literally awful. Management = actors (they have got a clue) low pay for rubbish I have no other words but just avoid! over worked under paid simple you really got to be desperate honestly
How these guys obtain contracts i will never know!
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Saint Helens – 30 August 2017
Not able to book in using automated book in system, simply not effective. Despite this, payroll know how many hours you have worked and constantly underpay you. Managers do not listen to concerns, they are just obsessed with achieving 100% attendance across sites. Managers are paid a bonus for employees 100% attendance, when it is the front line troops who do all the hard work. Don't bother with this company, you deserve better
Support (Current Employee) – North West – 19 August 2017
If you work hard and have a positive attitude it is a great job. If other people don't support out in the field it is hard. Same as any other job. I understand the nature of security is not as easy as some jobs but this is not the Company's fault and they get a lot of blame for it. Positive head office staff always on hand to help. Would recommend for driven individuals as a great opportunity
Concierge (Former Employee) – North East – 9 August 2017
I would recommend working with kingdom to any one who wants to do concierge work. I learned that every one has a part to play within the company. the hardest part of the job was not becoming g friends with the clients.the work place was very welcoming.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Liverpool – 11 June 2017
It was good until it changed It gave me better experience but I moved to naother company because i wanted change. I had to look at ID cards for students which has difficult especially when they have lost it.
I love the building I work in, along with the companies that are based here. I'm am given sole responsibility of the reception on a job share basis.
The one big problem is the management do not organise cover for people who have booked holiday and sickness and I am always asked to cover the day before, I do not mind covering (12 hour shifts) however I feel holidays etc. should have been sorted out weeks in advance as I do need to arrange child care and we often have to remind them to arrange cover for our on holidays they where booked months before.
Enforcement Officer (Former Employee) – Brent, Greater London – 2 February 2017
As enforcement officer you are hated by the public, And also what we enforce environmental protection ( act ) 1990 which initially interduced to stop pollution and dumping toxic waste ect. And private companies using it to generate money from the public.
Security officer (Former Employee) – March – 28 December 2016
Worked for kingdom for 1 year,good points fast delivery of uniform,management are useless! Never met my area manager but had atleast 4 different ones in the short time I worked for them,worked on a corporate site for them me and another guard,only one key between us so constantly driving to each other's houses no help with fuel costs from kingdom,sometimes couldn't get onsite if other guard was away client unhappy with this,raised the issue with kingdom numerous times nothing was done,shifts added to your roster without telling you then they phone you up ask where you are,book on system always down,site was broken into on other guards shift no management even came to see the client,I could go on and say lots more in the end the client got rid of kingdom I only found out as I got to work one morning and the client said you don't work here anymore phoned kingdom they said "we forgot to tell you"AVOID
Useless managers lose all there contracts no job security, they send guards that are not fit for purpose
