They do not care for their employees... This is not a people oriented business.
Poor management.

Salary was good they pay bank holiday, holidays. They charge you for training and you are obligated to do it.

Worked for them for a year.... they never value how nice or talented a person is all they want is a living person who can cover shifts. No appreciation. You are on your own in retail sites with no equiptments. Just good advertisment is their sole source of survival. Although you get rooster in advance but they have worst sites and mostly retail work. Not at all recommended

You will see your managers probably just once - when on interview. If you are lucky! Afterwards there will not be a chance to reach them on the phone or email - you are just ignored and treated like a piece of junk (with no exagerration!).You must be fully obedient robot with no personal life at all. Your personal opinion is non existing-when you speak out-they bite and you become persona non grata!
There is no reason to talking about professionalism of managers - they are just arrogant jerks who imagine themselves as a gods with no basic culture and understanding of specifics of security industry!

They can take you off the roster without any explanation and then leave you with no source of income for extended period of time.

It is really hard to understand how such a company still could be in business!

Respect yourself and keep away from this company no matter what!
Pros
They pay timely and do not make annoying meaningless visits on the sites.
Cons
No personal and professional culture presented. Just four digits on the payroll-all what you become!

Not one thing about this company is professional.
The managers are heartless and DO NOT CARE about their staff.

It seems like the kind of company that would hire a manager because he goes golfing with another manager.

EVERY WEEK there is a problem with YOUR wages that you literally have to annoy them into giving it to you.

As for overtime, goodluck. Overtime is calculated over 6 weeks WHICH WAS NOT AGREED UPON BY EMPLOYEES FIRST!! Sunday pay ? Extra 5euro PER DAY not per hour.

If you have any kind of issue you would be lucky to get a reply from your site manager for at least 3 days and even at that they will try their best to turn the blame on to you.

They go through every loophole they can find to save themselves money (overtime).

If you pull them up on anything they will will try their very best to punish you in anyway they can, i.e, drop your hours.

Please, please please, if you are desperate for a job please go elsewhere, please take my advice and save your dignity.

This is one of the worst companies that exist. always had to inquire why i was not paid according to the existing law. being bullied by inexperienced so called manager, i had to even teach him how to use a laptop while working in a social media office.

Extremely disgraceful behavior towards operators, unless you're one of the favorites. Extremely inexperienced managers, my line manager didn't even know how to use a laptop and he was supposed to support me in taking critical decisions.


I'd advise everyone to avoid this company.
Pros
you get the bare minimum income
Cons
overtime not paid according to the law, bullied by managers

They pay you for what you work, there is never a shortage is the pay, they are flexible enough in most cases.I have never had an issue with them €11.65 per hour is not a great wage but it is the going rate for security work .

Starting with Synergy was not that easy. Too much formalities, but after completing my probation, given me a good place to work. Which gave good work balance and extra time for me. The management cares about their staff and try to the best for us.
I'm always recommending my friends to be a part of Synergy who are in the same field.

Over 3 Years in this...Over that time i had 7 different managers, change my work location 4 times, No contact with manager he just ignore your call, don't try to ask for a rise :)Every time when going for holidays there was a problem with payments, had to call and ask for my money , no night rate , they will pay you additional 5 euro for working sundays, Only one thing wright about this company is they pay on thursday...They will try to make you drive long distances without paying you for it. Don't think HR will help you when needed, they will make you feel like its always your fault..Bad bad company currently looking for different job

I am with synergy security solutions for close to two years. I find that the management and hr staff are professional and courteous to deal with. Wages paid on time and if their are any issues it is dealt with quickly. There are a lot of security companies out there that don't particularly care for their staff, but I feel that if you put in the hard work and prove yourself, you will be looked after.

Not a good company to work for. Signed a contract for a higher hourly wage with the site manager in charge of my location, and found out (my fault for not doing it earlier) that this security company had not kept up their part of the agreement. Have had to go and get a solicitor in order to get the rest of my pay. Its a bad state of affairs when you have to bring a Security company to court for stealing from its own staff. What are they like with their customers.

A Typical day Patrolling the perimeter
watching for potential risks /hazards

Constant communication via the team& myself

internal duties/ reports

Workplace culture is very diverse to monitor large areas & individuals and this gives me great insight for my role, I really enjoy it

The hardest part of the job for me personally is the reporting, I strive for excellence wish to be more confident

The most enjoyable part of the day for me is succeeding in fulfilling all expectations that come with my position
