    I have been working at TSS (Total Security Services) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Actually given work, Uniform that fits.

    Cons

    Will add shifts to your work portal assuming you can do it rather than asking, Uniform fits but expect to go through a pair of trousers every few months, don't expect tesco staff to back you up if something happens, it's always your fault not theirs.
