I can say that anyone can take offer from them

In the workplace they don't have culture. They pay in time although you'll always to do pay queries. They give you a chance to gain experience and knowledge of security sector

Lack of communication / accountability

The working environment and management are toxic. There is no accountability nor communication between management and staff. I will not recommend working in this environment as it has a high level of stress, long working hours, no accountability when it comes to delegating authority or work.

Pros

Salary is above average

Cons

Long hours, no communication from higher level to mid.

Pros

No pros

Long hours of work and poor management

nice working place and always busy

Yes its nice to work for this company. I have learn a lot because I started here with no experience of dealing with different kinds of people, bridge operater and working in a reception. Sometimes its too cold and management is always putting pressure BT money that we get is not enough . it is nice during the summer because sometimes we get tips. And rewards.

Cons

long hours

Stressful environment, no social life

I enjoyed seeing both internal and external client issues resolved. My fast and accurate typing speed added value to this potentially great company. Some good team players and basically, it is what one makes of it. I may still have been there, had my contract not expired.

Pros

Close to public transport

Cons

few or no breaks; loads of stress; no benefits
Was this review helpful?

I prefer a friendly working enviroment with people who are professionals.

I worked for thorburn security solutions for over three years. They would give performance bonuses every month, some taken to do short courses. I worked as a security guard but use to assist with capturing of cars dilivered from Nissan to be stored at grindrod logistics for distribution.

Pros

Why not free lunches if possible

Cons

Normal working hours
