Stressful
Written by Gatehouse Security (Current Employee) from Chesterfield on 9 November 2018
The site has to be guarded twenty four hours a day and seven days a week. The work is spread on a rota system between three guards who cover the same pattern over three weeks.

Nights can be fairly uneventful and days can (and often are) rather stressful. Being polite and courteous is all well and good until suddenly you find yourself being told - more... to one thing by person A and then being told the opposite by person B ... which gets you reprimanded by person A. - less
ProsNo two days can be the same
ConsLong hours, stress
