Very Busy
Can be very busy, some great staff but also some not so great staff, you can make the job work but when you first start they start you on a Annualised hours contract which is terrible for a work life balance. As soon as poss you need to get on a core contract then life at the airport becomes more bearable.

Great place to work
Really good people, good clean office space and a feeling of belonging. Great investment being made in to the structure to bring the airport up to modern European ones.

Awful place to work, unfair management, dishonest supervision, nightmare shift pattern
The passengers were generally lovely, and the team I started with were great, but as the company rebranded and changes implemented all the best staff left, 33 in two months!

Ridiculously face paced
An insane target for customer throughput - it is clear to see that the company expect unreachable targets one way or another -which creates a high pressure stressful environment .

The pay is not great, you work long hours and you don't even get recognized or get payed enough. Your sleeping pattern is all over the place, the managers only care about themselves. Currently looking for another Job

No family life what so ever
If you enjoy going to bed at 3 in the afternoon and getting up at midnight go for it. Staff bus is always full, hard to find parking, cars get damaged no cameras. Not allowed to sit at any time. Get spoken to like rubbish and that's just off the managers. Passengers are even worse.

Its just getting worse!
I am surprised I lasted 8 years at this place. To start with the bad points

- They will employ literally anyone even though you might not be suitable for the role.

- Management on security don't care! its all about figures and through-puts of bags & passengers.

- No support of team leaders if you get an aggressive passenger or get put into a difficult situation.

-They make rules as they go along to please themselves.

- Faulty equipment

The list goes on! You do work with some great people.

Worst job ever
During the summer months you're not bothered by management or anyone and are left to the job you were hired to do. As soon as the holiday season comes to and end this is when the problems arise. Staff refer to this as sacktober. The amount of stress people are put under is ridiculous. You are constantly watched on cctv even though this is not the use of cctv. You will be out under intense pressure. Oh and if you leave will get a bill of around 800 quid for reasons that's seem to be made up and threatened with legal action.

Challenging but Rewarding
Excellent opportunities once you are there and a great environment to work in. Everyone gets on and helps each other whichever company you represent and the time passes quickly.

MAG Security job
I have worked at Stansted first for BAA now for MAG for over 12 years now
I enjoy the contact with the passengers and believe I am very good at customer care which in security is also a big part of the job

I wish there was more consistency with management but other than that I am ok with the job
Pros
For me the team work and my colleagues are a big pro plus the interaction with passengers is good
Cons
Management don’t u derstand or even care sometimes On the stress to staff working shifts in security
