Ex Aetos security officer works 320 hours a month and injures himself

I used to work at Aetos…first day of work was at Woodlands and got activated to do 8-hour duty after finishing “orientation lesson”.

After that continued for 16 hours, person who is taking over didn’t come till later – ended up doing 20-hours shift.

During my 1 year of working there, I clocked about 320 hours a month till I injured both my knees due to over exertion.

I ended up spending my salary to recover by physio, left the job after I recovered. The highest I earned was $3.2k including CPF – was it worth it?

Yes till the point that I injured myself but if I look at the bigger picture, this kind of hard labour is not worth the money. Even bangala construction worker get more rest, I had to endure countless hours checking cars, breathing in fumes and enduring 37c heats during the mid day.

Many think we aux police nothing to do but all I can say is please go and work there since you think it’s an easy job…even a fit commando couldn’t take the work and gave up.

    Is the company in breached of the Labour Law when they requested u to do overtime non-stop? Did u worked >12 hrs 6 days continuously without having a break? Have u highlight ur overtime or injury to ur company? If not, u r just another kpkb typical Sporeans doing yourself no good..If u hv highlighted & authority couldn’t do anything, that’s to show our gahmen is good for nothing..its ur own choice..take it or leave it..health or wealth..dun lament but fight on ..it’s a sad employment scene here as many r left in a lurch to fend for themselves..

    the sad things is that uniform group like SAF,SPF,SCDF,CISCO, AETOS are not covered by MOM or could they apply to NTUC or join any union group
