Some of the sites you work on ain't to bad management are poor they don't care that there's bullying going on as long as they get people on seats and treat you poor and you can never have a day off with out them phoneing
As a workforce you don't stand a chance.Managers don't care about you.Good sites are shared between friends of managers.When the vacancy comes up you can apply but job is already promised to managers pets.Imagine being on site for several years as a guard,you know the site inside out,then a supervisors vacancy comes up and you think I deserve it.Then you get a nasty surprise when an office nerd,with no knowledge of site nor any experience gets the job.You try to win a loosing battle with management,who you have done millions of favours before to and basically told to put up and shut up.Or you can appeal lol to the same managers who stabbed you in the back. mafia
This company tells you they have all kinds of hours but fail to let you know it's all over the place. They wanted me to work several different locations with different pay for each. One day at each place with different uniforms.... a real Joke.

bad hours , low pay and expect the earth from you. very bad senior management bad hours , no work life balance, you must cover in a minutes notice even though you have worked your contracted hours, and they push to work or put a black mark against your name
Security guard (Former Employee) – Weston-super-Mare – 6 June 2018
Nothing good to say. Lots of hours. Lots of grief and very little reward . I liked the anount of work load to start with but when they wanted to they could cut hours or work all together. I met alot of nice colleagues who I count now as friends. Management however really don't care about there workers.
Building co-Ordinator (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 31 May 2018
Worked for Securitas twice in the past 8 years both times as a tupe transfer.
First time I had my 50 hour a week contract reduced to 0 hours, got acas and a solicitor involved and was offered two months wages so took them and left.
Lastly moved after 14 months doing 60 hours a week on days Monday to Friday to nights on relief working all over the show.
30 Min break on 12 hour shift Poor management Often called at weekends / days off / holiday being asked to work even though I’d worked 60 hours that week already. Management don’t care about staff wellbeing Couldn’t enrol on cycle to work scheme until set windows in the year open. No xmas bonus No bonus for training other staff Not many good staff with exp and good English language Often numpties with no clue just got off Benefits and got an Sia easy

Security Officer/CCTV Operator (Former Employee) – europe – 19 May 2018
Average Security type work depending on the site you will be working. wages dont differ much from other companies. friendly colleagues some management can be hard to work with as they are closed minded not adapting to current situations.
I think securitas are good to work for my pay is on time and always right only negative thing is the pay I think we should get more we should be paid the same hourly rate as the contracted shop we work for.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – North West – 19 April 2018
I have been with the company 18 months and still haven't got a viable contract. The management is overstretched to the point of incompetency and tend to pay lip service to concerns. Training and compliance for the job use an extremely inefficient system which I don't consider fit for purpose.There is an expectation for staff to be 'flexible' with their hours leading to a poor work life balance and don't expect to get the correct pay monthly, but be prepared to scrutinise your monthly pay statement.
Generally a good rapport with fellow workers.
Inconsistent hours, incorrect pay and extremely poor administration.
