A small number in a big machine
Relief Officer (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 1 February 2018
Worked for vsg as a cover guard for over 7years on multiple sites.
Always work available if you're willing to travel,
Some sites close to home,
Double time on bank holidays,
Gain security experience in retail.
Univiting and backstabbing core officers,
Pay sometimes missing,
Uniform takes too long to arrive...had to buy own,
Nightshifts paid at same rate as day,
Not respected or appreciated just a body on site to be used,
Maximum stress....will eventually make you stressed,paranoid, aggressive and even depressed,
Monitored and mocked on CCTV and behind your back by co-workers & management staff,
Disturbed by control on your rest day via phone.
Added duties to shift routine some wasn't part of security job description....like cleaning duties......
I'd only recommend working for this company if you can get a local site otherwise the bad outweighs the good in my opinion.
Avoid the heartache and hassle and keep job hunting,
I genuinely worked at about two sites that was bearable the other sites was aweful at best.... constantly walking on eggshells in a toxic workplace, co-workers was backbiting and team morale was low.
Leaving not to return
