Do not have much to say.Lousy systems in place to report to.No leadership. Employees are forever compaining especially about their wages being short and having no replacement to swap dhifts with.


Long hours.

Professional for everything

timing for security industry I gain a lot of experience of working with people and being responsible for the for the safety of whole thing around the premise. The Management was so professional .workplace culture was accommodating everyone .hardest part of that job was a patrolling time 55 minutes for every hour for nightshift and standing still for the whole day on dayshift .The best enjoyable part was supervision because you only deal with paperwork, driving ,controlling security officers and follow the protocols of the client

Where i was deployed at it was a great place to work and i just wish i could get another chance to work with thorburn.

All I can say thorburn is the company that taught me how to live out there and even the management was friendly,when it's comes to the coligues we were working competitively to each other just earn the bonus for the work done,I just appreciate the company I had a chance with them and I will appreciate more if they give me another opportunity to work with them.

productive in such a way that you gain more experience working with them

I worked as a CCTV operatorI've gained a lot of experience i.e.: Cathexis Vision, and how to interact among people like clients, colleagues and contactors. It was a very challenging place, a lot of international human capitals attending to the place for some events. I experience difficulties some of the times when there's more than one event takes place, there will be lot of criminals attending in terms of stealing their belongings like laptops and phones also some of the staff taking chances by the time. and some of the cameras on site are being faulty and we didn't have enough CCTV screens to Thorburn staff we worked together, some got awards like certificates to show appreciation from the company.


allowance for no absenteeism


30min patrols during the night

Thorburn is one of the best companies ever!

Thorburn is one of the best companies that I have ever worked for. There is nothing hard about doing my job. The management is also very helpful. For me the most enjoyable part of my job is to work between my colleagues each and every day. I learned how to make the best out of a bad situation.

Thorburn is one of the best Security companies i ever worked for in terms of management , salaries etc .

I still think I would return to the company as long as i am in the Security Industry. While at Thorburn we used to get performance bonuses , top ups i mean everything that would motivate the staff . If the site has the allowance , Thorburn would give that allowance to the staff . I rate them 100% when it comes to taking care of their staff ...
