I am a former CPO with G4S. I worked in two states with G4S and have learned so much from my coworkers. The first year I had to work on sites that were not the best, my shifts were days nights evenings. After a year I was promoted and worked the day shift only and my assignments were great. I would highly recommend G4S to my friends.
Pros
Overtime and professionalism.
Contras
Longer hours that were not planned at times.

If you are offered a job with G4S at the Phillip Morris MC, you can come in either as a CPO ($15/hr) or a TSO (I think they get $13). CPOs are required to have prior military, law enforcement, or corrections experience. Frankly the prior military and LEO's tend to be the most reliable folks on the team. While the work is not very challenging, not all posts have an equal workload. (If you like to stay busy, volunteer for interior patrol or F Gate). After a couple of years on site I can say that management does try to be fair to all officers, but often falls short in that area. Better positions are offered to certain officers without being openly posted. Others call out from work on a regular basis, putting their fellow officers and supervisors in a bind but not being held accountable. Dissent and honest grievances are rewarded with a transfer off the account. The upside is that you can usually get overtime, especially if you are willing to come in at short notice for double shifts or on your days off.
Pros
Good pay for the area. Overtime usually available.
Contras
Some posts do a lot more work for the same money.

I dont want to give to much information out on a personal level but there is information that i think people should know before applying. Everyones situation or work experiences will be different. Should it be different? No. Based on the positions? Yes. I was hired in as 1 thing, but then after a couple years i was called in to the office and my title changed to another thing. Why? Because although my backround was verifiable, i needed a certificate to support that information. The managers base decisions off emotion, not reason or logic. This can be good and bad. They only appear to act professional when it comes down to telling you what to do. The benefits are expensive and are not that great. There is no 401k nor do they match. The opportunity for growth isnt worth the chase because there are no decent benefits to sustain that chase. This job is a stepping stone to a better career or perhaps a better career with a different security company. This job isnt meant for longevity and those that are on the job for many years are nearing retirement or are retired from a different job. The pay is decent depending on your backround but if your prior military you have a better opportunity elsewhere. The highest rank in G4S as a gaurd is a CPO...any qualifications and titles that are needed to become that is better utilized elsewhere. Meaning if your a prior police officer, find a different security company that will pay you more...military i would say the same. They accept correctional officers as well and i believe that is more in line with the duties of working for G4S. Everyone - más...
Pros
Okay pay
Contras
Indecisive clients.

The job assignment was great However, the lack of employees following policy was the worst and lack of disciplinary actions by management. It was disappointing to see the double standard for a international company.
Pros
nice uniform
Contras
Does not abide by their company policies

A security job asking for a heavy background to get in, prior police, military or a 4 year degree, just to get mediocre pay at best, some posts have you work non stop for hours, and others are just a constant presence of security, aka standing around. Definitely nothing long term to get here.
Pros
Some clients are nice
Contras
Terrible benefits, no sick days, bad management

G4S is a wonderful company to work security with. They are one of the largest security providers in the world and because of this there are endless opportunities.

G4S is like every other big security company out there, they don't care about you and you are just a number to them. Typically with these big security companies your experience comes down to what contract you're on and your management. I was on a decent paying contract, but had horrible management and the clients management was even worse. Prepare to be micromanaged. If you don't mind walking aimlessly in circles and scanning tags every 10 feet or standing in one place for many hours, this is the job for you! I have never heard a company use the word or phrase "fire" or "you will get fired if____" so many times in my life. They will threaten termination for just about any little action as a scare tactic from the very first day of orientation.
Pros
Pay depending on contract
Contras
Horrible benefits, You are just a number to them

If you want to get after it and put in hours, come in with the right attitude, on time and with the correct uniform and you’ll be treated like a professional. Pay is better than other companies I’ve seen and you’ll work with higher quality teammates in your guard force.
Pros
Great locations
Contras
Standing post, but that’s the job right?

No job security, they can not sustain their accounts, poor management, no advancement, the pay is ridiculous, one minute you making $19 the next minute you're making $12. Very high turnover rate. There's somethings you can like about G4s but it doesn't like you back. If you really need a job go ahead and work but be looking for something else.
Pros
It's something better than nothing
Contras
Everything else

I enjoy working for G4S. They are very supportive and will help you advance as long as you're pro-active. I see a lot of people complaining on here but I think its because they expect something for nothing. You have to speak up if you want something.
Pros
flexible work schedule.

Little to no hope for advancement in the company paired with terrible pay and a terrible attitude from the corporate offices ("G4S doesn't pay you, the client does.") make G4S a terrible employer. Stay far, far away.

There are no opportunities for advancement. And a lot will depend on your post. I worked the Publix post and here are the pros: -Plenty of overtime available. -Bike/Outdoors uniform is pretty cool and comfortable. -You get to meet and socialize with plenty of people.Cons-No advancement opportunities. You can’t make a career out of this. -Standard regular uniform and cowboy hat are goofy and silly- looking. -Standard company- issued firearm is .38 Revolver, which is very outdated. -No brainwork involved. A lot of 'doing- nothing'. I felt like a loser. -No authority to do anything. I felt very useless. -You get in trouble easily for simply doing things out of good faith. -Management shows no appreciation. -Management always sides with client even when client is wrong.
