Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The security industry is a very demanding industry. I normally started my day with checking my manager's e-mails. Typing of minutes, preparing reports. I learned a lot about the security industry, which I found very interesting. The company have some of the best managers that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Fidelity is like a big family. The hardest part of the job must be the fast pace, I enjoyed working for such an fast growing company.

Pros

Training of staff

Cons

Fast pace

the company was serving good

The company was dong good except that they did not pay my for 2 months and that was the reason why i left.so it was better to work as a security guard than to work as an inspector because the guard earned more money than inspectors.

Pros

i used to work even durring the lunch

Cons

i used to work long hours maybe when there is no one to releave me.

very productive

When the clients call at once looking for service while vehicle standing with a break down . How to handle pressure and how to manage staff Managers are different but its always a pleasure to have some one who's very strict coming to deadlines When you should work with out anyone helping you while you have to manage 80 plus staff members including clients

Pros

Cons

We working long hours sometime if problems arise or we have a meeting

fun place to be at

The site they place me in is ok at times,the client would come with instructions that go against what we were taught as security guards and also our hours were dropped to top it all I leave my house as early as 6 o'clock in morning and getting back home.at about 7:30 in the evening but only getting paid for 8 hours.I would have loved to stay with the company but with all these it has become unbearable

Cons

long hours on the road which not getting paid for

bad company

a day at work is like a day in prison ,u sit there from 6am -6pm and get 30min tea break and 30min lunch break ,you have to work 21days in order to get R4250 which is called a "basic salary",before getting the job there is a polygraphy test u need to do than after u got the job they charge you for it R200 for 4months and the charge you for headsets you have to use at work R216 for 4 months ,the hardest thing about this job is knowing that there is people who work lest hours than you do and they still earn much.

Pros

non

fun working place

when my colleagues are playing instead of working. I have leaned an admin job even though I have no certificate of this particular job. my managers felt in love for what I am doing and they communicate with me.the hardest part of my job is when I am running 4 post at once. I enjoy using computer and communicating with colleagues via telephone and 2way radio.

Pros
