Enjoyed working there as no two days were the same. Quite a secure job as when I was there, they struggled to recruit/retain staff. Left due to over worked and not getting two days off together. I believe the shift manager has now changed
Cons
No quality of life due to shifts

To many jobs on each run, sometimes impossible to complete, if you dont complete all jobs you get in trouble, hours are long, doesn't pay enough! I cant wait to get out of the company!

If you really want to do this kind of work, go to one of the other providers, they pay more and the vehicles are better maintained
Also make sure you are provided with a satnav and the correct addresses and access routes for sites you will be visiting

Or better still, don’t bother with this kind of work

This is a very poorly run company, the rota which is done by management is beyond the joke. Rota goes up, you go home at 6pm afterstarting at 5am and they have you down for a 5am start the next day. The next day you arrive at work only to notice the rota has been changed and you are now down for 7 or 8am start on a different route. A simple phone call would work, but that would be to much hard work. After working 8 hrs at most places your hourly rate usually goes up slightly, not at this place. It stays the same whether you work 12hr, days or nights, absolute robbery.

Apart from your uniform you are provided with no PPE, like protective gloves or waterproof clothing, even though you are are out in all condition using a tail lift most of the working day and moving steel cages and vaults by hand. Then theres the current fleet of HGV vehicles, they are old and mostly falling to bits. Drivers are expected to take their breaks and eat in these vehicles, but they are very dirty and management simply ignore this.


From what I witnessed I would very much doubt that a risk assesment has taken place for loading and unloading HGV vehicles, if it has then it is blatently ignored by senior management and other staff. There is not a safe working practice in place, if someone has not already been hurt or injured at this company, for sure somebody will one day.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, low pay for hours done, no time for family, friends or hobbies.

I used to work there on a very unsociable shift 3pm till 11pm. The workload split between the 2 shifts is ridiculously unfair as on the afternoon shifts there is about 20-30 jobs whilst on the 7am till 3pm shift there is a couple at max. There are certain management who get away with doing nothing and been penalised for bullying which have forced colleagues out of the door and others to be off mentally ill. Any grievances you take up with higher management last for about a week before they go back to the old ways. Management has never done any of the jobs they ask you to do and tell you how to do them with out of date and broken machinery. The shift says 3 till 11 but basically work till done so can be 11 at night 2 in the morning or 9pm. The staff you work with on the same level are good to get along with but management do not care about you and will throw you under the bus at any given opportunity to save their own selves. The staff turnover is ridiculously high whi hshould be a massive warning sign for people and for literally just above minimum wage it isn't worth the hassle in the slightest ask. If you are good at your job or the only one who can do the job they block you from proceeding higher up the chain which again has caused people to leave. They try to get blood out of a stone out of one shift and let the other do whatever they want because the bosses are on that shift and don't want it to reflect bad on themselves. In closing I would not recommend this to the worse criminal going never mind any normal person just run away from hefe

Rotas done one week at a time so cannot plan anything. Rotas can also change on a daily basis and it’s your responsibility to check it daily for changes. No actual work pattern to working weekends. Some people get preferential treatment, if your face fits. Can’t have holidays when you want them then you are told when to take them which suits the manager. When you leave they take money from your final pay for SIA licence regardsless how long you have worked there .

The guys you work with are great, the guys in the depot are great, everything else is terrible.
Vans are old and dropping to bits, uniform is terrible, any bump or dint costs you money, training is sparse at best, routes/drops change day to day, information very vague, stressful and thankless.

High pressure long hours
You were a commodity, the company has no consideration for you as a person.

No support provided from upper management and ignored health and safety

Security plus are the small fish in a big pond. They dont have a clue what they're doing and do everything on a budget. All staff are expected to work long hours with low pay and basic pay rate for overtime.
Interview process and training is laughable or should I say almost non existent. Drivers are expected to know every route and if they dont they get mocked by the managers. VCS are supposed to supervise but arent allowed to and processers are expected to do everytjing in betwen.

Good job but fast paced and low pay for what you do. You are told at interview about fast pace and if you can handle it great job it is. Once your out your left alone unless behind or potential security risk. Run is kind of put together for you but could be better
Pros
4 days on and every other weekend, Weekly pay, Left alone but support there, Can talk to management if needed
Cons
Eat on the go between calls or be behind, need own sat nav or maps on phone

Some jobs are high pressure as there as much as 50 drops/day. Mine not so. Driving 7.5 tonner and on tacho. So had to take legal breaks. Management were good. Unlike the reviews of other depots.
Pros
7.5 tonne & hgv steady job. Tacho breaks mandatory.
Cons
If on small vans can be around 40/50 drops a day. Only for the younger driver.

Early starts and can be longs hours in the day, however this is explained in the interview process and only 4 working days a week so personally I would rather work long days in order to get more days off during the week. In my personal experience management have been good and have been helpful. Pay could be better for the kind of work but there a lot of worse jobs with worse money.

Worked to the bone, the harder you work..the harder they work you, long hours no appreciation very heavy lifting for long periods of time, the pay most definitely does not even come close to the variety of risks you are exposed too
