Management are helpful and accommodating and will provide a back up structure. The management listen to their employees and are quite helpful in seeking a happy medium for both parties Good professional firm
Good Management structure
Worked in most securitas sites in the greater dublin area, some sites are great and have all the facilities on hand. Fellow staff is the problem with this company, too many old school, power driven, set in their ways type of people, who hate change and believe their way is the best way. Not great for an employee wanting to progress forward, Management are good also as well as HR, never an issue in my 3 years with the compamy, always paid on time, good comms to staff communication, and understanding when running late etc.
Management, wages, sites, communications
Staff on majority of sites, securitas should have more young enthusiastic employees and less geriatric pensioners
Definitely the best security company in Ireland. Management staff is knowledgeable, experienced and supportive. If you are a hard worker they will definitely push you out of your comfort zone, give you an opportunity, but also support you and help you in your career development. They really take care about their employees. Most sites have more than minimum hourly rate with additional allowances. Excellent company for career progression.
Support, communication, emphatic employer, progression opportunities.
Sometimes insufficient number of employees causes working a lot of extra shifts
Be careful when signing the contract! Know your rights and don't let them full you. Very impolite senior security staff and management. Big disappointment!
Pay on time, good pay rates
Bad management, changing roster all the time, rudeness from senior security
First of all, they will promise you anything when you start your interview. Belive nine of it if it's not on paper. Second: If you're lucky, you'll get your uniform in time (read if you got a site that is important to them and the client is a high importance one). And third: The management and those guys in comms have no interaction between each ither. So they have different files on you (talk about efficiency and simplicity) and if you told your manager you're not available on per example Mondays, the comms will send you a roster with Mondays because the management didn't pass on the info on you, so you have to call comms to make them aware of your availability. To make it even more complicated, a branch manager has an assistant, and miraculously he has an assistant too. :D Anyway, if you hmHAVE to work with them, the way to deal with this company is to be very persistent and bore them to death with your requests (even though they were supposed to be given to you without even asking). PS: Sunday allowance means +0,5€ per hour, and night allowance means you have to sleep with someone or bore them to death.
Loads of hours if you want to have nonlife / Be on call floater.
No life, they'll call you even on holidays, let laone on your days off.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Securitas?
Would not recommed this company to anyone.Management are a joke and never show up to sites wont answer calls or emails for weeks. Pay wrong every pay packet , then have to fight to get your sun allowance (50c extra an hour) No chance of advancement unless you are friendly with the office staff or are willing to work for nothing.Theres no one to go to with a problem as all the managers and HR are friends also when you complain your hours are changed to mess you about .Avoid at all costs.
Workmates are sound
To many to list.
In this position as a security officer I secured the premises and its personnel. I also maintained staff ID's and kept up to date records.
Great experience, always meeting new people.
Not guaranteed to stay put, could be moved around at the drop of a hat.
Keep looking if you are considering working for Securitas Security Services Ireland Ltd. You will be treated like dirt by this company. The picture management have of this company is completely different to what it actually means to work as a guard for them. Management ignore you 99% of the time. You are never congratulated for a job well done, but the slightest error is met with vicious harassment.
Other guards are great people
HR & Management
Good company to work for. Lots of hours available and good rate of pay. Good prospects if you are willing to put in the effort. As security companies go in Ireland they have a good system in place between management and staff.
Lots of hours
I dont have a permanent site
