Security Guard (Former Employee) – Ilford, Greater London – 26 February 2018
Everyday was a different day meeting new and old people got to know my work colleagues everything was organised and no complaints had a good set up my only problem would be working extra long hours which I didn't mind
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!
Lead Officer/Security Guard (Former Employee) – Capitol Heights, MD – 16 June 2017
I loved this job because if you put in your work you had a chance to move up. I became a Sargent worked harder and became a lieutenant of 5 different sites. I loved working with the owner who trained me.
traveled everyday to diffefrent sites reviewing and screening employees

Nightmare and a half to get shift co-ordinators to understand what your saying, expect you to just be able to get up and go to a location without access to a car, late finishes and left to make own way home.
Regional managers a nice bloke, colleagues are mostly nice people too.
Overall wouldnt recommend unless you have private transport, dont mind working all hours etc
Not many to be fair
Have to pay for uniform that THEY require you to wear, long hours, no concern for employees
i currently work for Next retail, as a busy store, we have a monthly target, broke down to weekly and always achieve it, i am a team coach, and demonstrate a good leadership of my sale team. i am very open, persistent and adaptable as i have worked with people frm different backgrounds. i really enjoy what i do, from the time i star untill i finish.
Not one of the worst, but down there for a miserable occupation.
Security Guard (Current Employee) – Nottinghamshire – 13 November 2013
Started working for Kingdom about a month now, the pay is just above NMW for what you do not really enough, the job itself is fairly easy CCTV monitoring but is 95% boring, a bit dead end also, my colleague left soon after I was set on, so given unwanted overtime, but now I have a new work colleague, who seems keen on his new job & managed to carve the hours between us, which seem suitable to us & giving both of us a decent break, which is very rare for this occupation, an occupation, which I consider very miserable, for what you have to put up with, but for the time being I do not mind the hours allocated, which I have sorted out, any problems with wages are soon dealt with though, if you are short. Another thing being monthly paid is also a problem. Management very rarely contact you but if you call them, they do try to sort out any problems you may have. Overall if you want a dead end job, with little harassment in a miserable occupation, this is the job for you. My SIA badge runs out in May next year I have no intention to re-new, just want to get out of this business ASAP.
