I was relatively new to construction site work and the on-site manager was very accepting of this. I felt at ease straight away and relieved that I could work in a relaxed atmosphere.

Nothing to say about my experience with this company, I won't recommend them to someone, they have a poor organisation, they don't pay how is supposed to pay

The management was terrible
Pay was a disgrace that's if you got paid

Was told there were showers on site their wasnt

Was told I could park my car on site after my shift so I could sleep I couldn't

I was forced to sleep in my car as i could afford accommodation

I'd have to go 3 to 4 days without a shower

I've worked in a lot of security companies and this is definately one of the better ones. Sites are quite good and have good variation. Always get paid on time and in full. Management are good and don't interfere unless there's an issue or work related checks. All in all I would recommend them to anyone. I've worked with them for over 2 years and work for them at present. quite happy to continue doing so

I have done work placement with them, which wasn't good as they won't pay you even cent. Security officers with whom I worked complained as they didn't pay properly and I believe the culture wishes to be a lot better.

I work for them a few years ago and never got what they own me,
there was a dispute between my hours I worked and hours that were sent to the office. Of course, they didn't match. When I went to the site office I got my hours but MCR told me they have a different and refuse to solve the problem.

When I took longer and more of my worked hours were deducted I was let go by them because I start to complain to my foreman and he rang MCR.

They don't pay on time!

And try to robe you from every hour you work...

They are very bad agency just stay away from them.

Stay away from them or you get the same experience as me.

They expect you to work every hour under the sun
While ignoring overtime and Sunday allowence that is covered in your contract . They pay you a lesser amount than you are due for bank holidays and holiday pay

Your contract and ero legalisation governing security they ignore it all


When you question your wages payment ECT

You have a meeting with a deluded operations manager who is full of lies


They might start paying you the right wages but then you have to fight for back pay and you receive no more overtime and your work hours are less


Great company to get a start on security industry as they employ any person even people who can not speak or have the ability to write


If you have a choice stay clear
Pros
You will get a start in security
Cons

Started working for this company, or rather, SAR Security (sneaky considering I applied to MCR and found out later they were actually that God awful Security company in disguise). I was promised X amount of days from the start but as soon as I started the job I realized my roster was short days. I rang management and nobody seemed to be able to figure out where the other hours I was promised had gone to. As if that wasn't bad enough, I was working 30hrs with this company but they were only paying me 20 hours and as soon as I noticed this I contacted the company to no avail so I contacted MCR's side of things and got a spiteful email and the following week my wages were for a 6hr shift.... PLEASE, PLEASE STAY AWAY. They are an absolute joke of a company. You won't get the hours you're promised and you won't get your pay.
Pros
Local work
Cons
Poor management, incorrect pay constantly, zero response to resolve issues, bounce you around to multiple people when they don't like what you have to say over the phone.
