From the beginning the management doesn't communicate with Field Supervisors. Each post is different depending on the experience of the Post Commander. An officer can't expect things to be done in a timely manner and often has to wait for administrative changes to be made.
Pros
Since the minimum wage was increased the pay is better
Contras
Don't learn much at posts

People fight over each other to get higher power, don’t expect pay increases unless switching job sites. Mostly easy work and decent pay but people will trample over you just to try to get higher in company.

I enjoyed working for G4S Secure Solutions because of how relaxed the environment is when working at Northgate Mall. The only bad thing about the company is if you want to advance in the company to becoming a shift supervisor or higher, you have to have supervisory experience even when some of the vacancy announcements does not state needing the experience. The reason I say this because I was unable to become a shift supervisor for the company even though I met qualifications according to the vacancy announcements that I have applied for. Other than the bad thing, the company is going to be really big after being bought from Allied Universal; which will then increase more job opportunities for anyone that is interested. The pay rate that I receive from working at Northgate Mall in Durham, NC is 14 an hour which is decent pay for an unarmed security guard in the South. The job security is good though with very little worries of lay offs or reduction in guard force. The company is strict on absences: meaning you have to call in 4 hours of advance notice to your supervisor that you can not make it to work for extenuating reasons like being sick or injured or for what ever reasons you have. If you do not call in 4 hour advanced notice to your supervisor and do not come to work, you are either deemed fired or have quit and won't be able to work for the company again. If you decide to quit G4S, please make sure you put in your 2 week's notice; so that if you ever want to come back to work for the company, you can do so.
Pros
Discount at Gyms like Planet Fitness, Discounts at Stadium 10 Movie Theater when it was open to the public.
Contras
someone quit's or is fired from G4S at Northgate the manager will have to increase my working hours.

Not much to say.G4S is not as cheap as are the other security companies. They pay decent to good to great pay rates it depends on client/site you're working at. Management sucks - basically there's no management, communication between office/employees is worst than horrible. No room for growth at all. No trainings. no challenges. Monotony with capital M. As I mentioned in review summary - just a job, not a career.
Pros
Pay
Contras
No true leadership, no management, favoritism, lack room for growth

I am thankful for my job, especially during the pandemic but there are A LOT things that needs to be changed within this organization. Pay is extremely low for the amount of work they expect you to perform at your assigned site. Benefits suck as well. No room for advancement, no raises, NOTHING. If you have a degree or college credits, that means nothing. This company also shows no employee appreciation whatsoever. There have been other companies who have employed people throughout the pandemic. Those employees received bonuses/hazard pay. G4S gave us NOTHING! Since the beginning of the pandemic, entering my workplace every day is a RISK! G4S does not care. Also, no personal leave/sick leave, not even for those who have been employed with the company for years. That is all...
Pros
Chance to meet some decent people
Contras
Pay, benefits, Pay, no personal leave/sick leave, little to no time for vacation

I worked as a customs protection officer at G4S for 2 years. Job responsibility and pay will shift depending on the post you’re assigned, but mostly the guards are there to “observe and report”. You won’t be doing much except maybe walking around a particular property. I wouldn’t recommend it as a long term position as there’s is no learning involved and very little growth opportunities.
Pros
Training was paid for by employer
Contras
No growth opportunity

I was thrown into what was described to me as a “hostile” environment with little training outside of my prior knowledge. They love to hire ex military so if that’s you then here you go. Throughout the pandemic I was provided one mask, I had to get my own or take from the clients supplies. I was promoted because I was there longer than anyone else and that was only a few months.

I'm a CPO at G4S and my experience has been a fair one. However the experience can be a bad one as well. The management team seems like they're incompetent. When you need to call them for any reason they will not answer or call you back. When I'm placed on an assignment I'm on my own as well. If a emergency arises I'm on my own. I get along well with my district manager However, he let's me down also. But I made great money working the overtime. In the 5 years I have been with g4s i average over 50 thousand dollars per year.
Pros
A chance to make great money!
Contras
Bad management, your rate of pay fluctuate, and no advancement.

Working for G4s was actually very fun and I loved the people that I worked with. The benefits suck and are very expensive but the job itself was good.

The scheduling was very unstable, no room for growth if you didn't have a college degree, so made people not care for the job for long. Force to work more hours than expected due to call off or quitters. It was hard balancing the social life cause I was always at work. Literally.
Pros
overtime
Contras
no benefits, long shifts, no room for growth.

In terms of working stateside and not working on a government contract, it’s hard to find any company that pays as well as G4S. There’s always work for you too.

Some management is better than others just gotta be under the right one. Turnover rate is high but if you have a vehicle and can do flex it's a pretty decent job if you qualify to be a customs protection officer. Reasonable pay if you have that position. Work life balance will depend on your ability to manage your time properly between shifts. Best advice is to keep good communication with your management. The only complaint I have is that the health insurance even the best most expensive one they offer isn't very good.
Pros
Decent pay
Contras
Health insurance is lacking

I worked out of the Boca Raton office for a little over a year. I loved it at first. Then I got a new area manager (former cop that thought he was still a cop). He was a complete pita. Then we got a new general manager (an even bigger pita). Both of them made my work life with that company unbearable. My old area manager was in the process of making me a supervisor at my site but this new area manager gave my schedule to a new employee which cut my hours and then he removed me from that site. I left the company and have been so much happier ever since.
Pros
None
Contras
Upper management

G4S is a good company to work for as a security officer. They offer stable hours plus overtime and decent benefits such as health insurance/ Blue Cross Blue Shield, 401k, vacation time, good training and a host of other good benefits. Management is highly supportive and will work the best they can with you. There are also many different sites to work at armed and unarmed with many opportunities for promotion/ advancement.
Pros
Full time hours plus OT, benefits, flexible schedule
Contras
Like with all security companies pay varies according to the site you are working at.

Your job is just a plaything for the management to toy with. Especially over here in DE. I’ve never been in a position where your management make you feel bad for working your actual schedule. Here it’s bad if you don’t kill yourself with overtime when they should just hire more people. But hey what do I know
Pros
None
Contras
Everything ( not exaggerating)

G4S like any typical Security company are changing hands, Try something that will offer benefits and a pension plan. Hospital Security has a high turnover rate due to the poor equipment, Micromanaging, and ill treatment to those who they want to pick on and harass through the day. Upper management is unsupportive and condones abuse so there is no support group to make complaints to matter that will be of any useful documentation that would make a difference because it’s a buddy system and also a good ol boy environment.
Pros
Easy to get hired
Contras
No pension plan

Easy enough work. I was stationed at gated communities. Most of the time shifts were handled poorly and I had to work three different shifts in one week. Most of the time they didn't give consecutive days off. I mostly got Tuesdays and Thursdays off.Pay is horrible for the posts that were available in my area.
Pros
Easy work
Contras
No breaks and low pay
