Easy stewarding

The job is quite easy but getting paid can take awhile sometimes so make sure all the the documents you are applying with are up to date .if you have any problems they are quick to respond but can take a long time solving it they pay by cheque .

Pros

Relaxing

Cons

Zero hour contact

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Nearly all their stewards do not have any stewarding qualifications.

Easy money, easy work basically the point is get paid and do1 no friendships here managers don’t know who you are and couldn’t give two sh1ts they just sign you up like they did with 1000 others just another name on the book.They also don’t pay some staff some been waiting months.

Pros

Don’t have to attend shifts if you don’t feel like it, hire basically anybody.

Cons

Wages in cheque, Don’t care about their staff, Having to travel from Birmingham all the way to Further up Dudley to get paid.

I enjoyed working at K2 security

Would love to work there again under frank top bloke the other stewards there were understanding it what roles they were doing we were told what to do and we just got on with it and we worked as a team and was a relaxed environment,if anyone was thinking of going to work for K2 i would...

Easy and laid back

Apart from a few drunk people at stadiums that can get annoying. K2 stewarding is pretty good and well payed for the amount of hours and it doesn't clash with other part time jobs I do.

Interesting, professional and enjoyable work

Serious work ethic comes with the role,but it is also fun working for them and the support for employees is very good,especially with the chance to advance your knowledge and skills furthering your career and job propects the tutors on the SIA course I have just completed were well versed and helpful they offer an opportunity to advance within tbe company I suggest that if you are looking to get into security work then K2 are the company to approach,but don' t take my word for it try them for yourself. Every day is different, the hardest part of the job is sometimes the start times are early gut there are compensations for this such as the camaraderie between the employer and employee is really good. As is the support network.

excellent place to work

The company is great and the management is marvellous. I have never encountered any problems or issues with this company. I've been treated fairly and the staff are also great. In addition, the salary and benefits are great and the job work/life balance is also wondrous.

Avoid this unprofessional company

Biggest waste of time, they say they need staff, but I’ve never been contacted to come in and do any hours. Wasted my time even filling in their application form and dropping it off to there office in Dudley. The event manager is full of bs, never seen a manager like this before. Be warned!

Cons

Management

Terrible employer

Unprofessional company with a low regard or their employees. Always looking for an excuse to reduce the already poor wages they pay. Be it a "screening fee" or fines for every conceivable excuse.

Pros

None

Cons

Dont pay you for the extra time you put it. No breaks
