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.

Overall left alone. Suits me. Wages always there. Fair roster. No hassle once you do the job. Good HR Team. Good use of modern tech regarding holiday requests.

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.
Pros
Support, communication, emphatic employer, progression opportunities.
Cons
Sometimes insufficient number of employees causes working a lot of extra shifts
