Security Officer (Former Employee) – Gateshead – 1 August 2018
this was not the sort of experience i was expecting for a well known name within the security industry, I thought this was an absolute joke from the start until breaking point lack of control by management forced me to take the decision to abandon the sinking ship and peruse another company
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire – 29 June 2018
A typical day at work entails ID checks and making sure people have the correct passes and permits to work, including making sure that all relevant paperwork is in date, directing deliveries to the correct drop off point. I learned all about working on a port and have also achieved qualifications necessary to work on any and all ports based in the UK, I learnt more about teamwork and I have started to learn more about using CCTV but I still want to learn more to progress further. Management is at most not helpful when you have a problem for example I have been waiting to this day nearly six months for more uniform which I put in a request for. The culture at the site I am based is not very good as the morale on site is low due to staff being made to take redundancy due to budget cuts and no real information shared by management.The hardest part by far is dealing with foreign delivery drivers who speak limited to no English at all which sometimes causes problems on site. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people.
the middle management , and the operations positions , work so hard to keep everything going , unfortunately not all the effort is seen buy the upper management , Securitas also seem to restructure every 2 yaers , so managers are never that safe , officers are normally safe, and looked after by the operations
Not to bad company but don't expect to get promotions
Security Team Leader/ Lead Guard (Former Employee) – securitas UK – 7 September 2017
worked for this company for about 3 years into they loss the contract to another security company which actually is a worse company to work for. They were good on getting wages correct a few minor mistakes but quickly corrected. Holiday mostly honored but problems where resolved, Management was a mix and match some good others poor so i would have to say i didn't mind working for them but they could improve. The only grip was that they would offer you promotions then say they didn't have the budgets and then not give them to you. 3 times offered a managers job and then come the transfer day told there was not a budget but then a different job role was made up and someone else was promoted to-do the same job you was offered.?? holiday some times was a pain to get booked, uniform was poor quality and not very nice to wear. NO benefits which were worth taking.
