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.

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!

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 .
