Flexible work environment but poor management

Been with the company for over a year & witnessed the good and bad. G4S as a whole doesn’t look after their employees as they should. During the BLM, Asian Violence, LGBTQ movement nothing was said to whether they stand with the movements or against. When COVID hit, employees were not provided with sick pay or even a get well soon card. Extra coverage wasn’t provided & was advised work within ( = figure it out amongst yourselves even if you’re overworked). the job pays the bills, puts food on the table & clothes on your back.. nothing more and nothing less

Pros

Flexibility

Contras

Benefits, Poor Management, lack of diversity training

Employees Are Not Valued As People

I spent 4 years with G4S and it was honestly one of the worst companies I ever worked for. Poor management, poor negotiation of client contracts, employees at small accounts are forgotten/neglected. I have a relative who also has been a loyal G4S employee for 20 years. She fell sick on the job and was in the hospital 2 weeks. Not so much as a fruit basket was sent. All she got was a phone call asking when she would be returning to work. I'm surprised the Memphi branch lasted as long as it did.

Pros

Employment

Contras

Pay, Benefits, Management, Morale, Structure

Serious no fun

Like most of those companies that are in this industry, they promise all sorts of benefits. When you start they become more interested in how much of you time you can give. There is no career advancement structure in place to make you feel that you are an asset to the company.

Pros

none

Contras

Long hours indeed.

My experience

Depends on the customer where you're assigned. Working at HCA in Hopewell, Virginia was a great experience, but in Richmond it was terrible due to "favorites" and lack of management and supervision. Upper-level "leaders" (corporate) do not lead, they dictate. The HR department does not understand that employee advocacy is a function of HR. No room for advancement in most of the locations. On the plus side, if you work for a customer like hospitals, you're almost guaranteed job security. Pay is better than most private security companies as well.

It's a decent job for someone in retirement.

Honestly, I don't think we can ever expect too much out of a security firm anyways so comparatively speaking, I'm probably being too harsh on them. They'll hire anyone which is good for inclusion but not so great for a dedicated employee who has to come in a fix everyone else's mess ups. Whether it be lack of dedication, only showing up for the paycheck, people who just blatantly don't care or respect any aspect of the position, or those who you teach 500+ times and they still never grasp it, fear not because you have a job with G4S AND you'll probably earn a higher status before the better candidate does! The company themselves doesn't care about its employees and the clients don't really either. Pay is okay at my location but I'd be making more at Walmart if I applied. Communication is a struggle between job sites and management. I guess overall, if you're just looking for a side hustle, this is a good option. Don't apply if you struggle with accepting underachievement though, it seems to be a trend with G4S's employees.

Contras

Low pay, high turnover, bad employees, bad/no benefits

San Diego site's are a hotbed breeding ground of micromanagement for slave wage

If you have dignity for yourself, at least apply to a reputable organization in the San Diego area. Supervisors do not care about you, site supervisors have no backbones, account managers will see turnover rate as an accomplishment, SD's office is lazy and never gets back to you, at all. The level of micromanagement to justify having the supervisors at these sites is unfathomable. It's like an extension of high school; no real maturity, basic understanding of professionalism when it comes to dealing with other humans is non-existent, conflict management is perceived as how to further deteriorate relationships as quickly as possible. The tasks at these sites will leave you absolutely bored out of your mind, meanwhile being lambasted you're doing all things wrong.Bottomline: Waste of time, they want you to quit before they finish the mountains of paperwork they wish to build on you to expedite the process. You're on your own with SD sites.

Pros

Pay is ok

Contras

Unpaid lunches, micromanagement, toxic supervisors, no chance of advancement, turnover extreme

Overall a good company to work for with decent pay

I worked for the company for almost two years and the only reason I left was because I moved to another state and couldn’t find any job opportunities with the company.

Extremely dull with no room to grow

This is merely a job. Nothing more nothing less. The management might as well be one person that's diagnosed with alzheimer's because they are slow to respond and when they do they never seem to remember us talking to them about company things.

Worcester

Supervisor is great. Employees judge co-workers before getting to know them. There’s always overtime. Some nurses are nice but others give you attitudes without knowing you. Some people take advantage. Some think they are above others because of experience. Not given fair chances by other co workers

It's always the security Officer fault, the client is never a cause of any problem.

Never transfer. If, unsatisfied or the post that they choose for you doesn't work and is not flexible it's your fault . You turned down your assignment.

Pros

You get to meet a lot of people mostly G4S is hospital related

Contras

no lunch. keep your HCA credentials up-to-date you won't be able to work

Wouldn't recommend

Very poor management. You'll get written up for missing 2 days with a reasonable reason.No holidays, no paid time off. Definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone unless you want to o work forever and not get any gratitude.

Pros

None

Low pay

Productive and fun

An enormous amount of responsibility at far lower than normal security hourly rates. The Walmart of the Security World. Sam Walton would be proud.

Meehh

Don't bother working for them. They can remove you and won't tell you if you're fired. Even if they accuse you of making a tweet about poor working conditions. Even when they don't tell if the tweet violated anything secretive in company policy. You're literally expendables working for cheap pay. Lots of dirty things occurring behind the job.The whole management office is a joke. Favoritism is everywhere in this company. No loyalty, quality or professionalism. No wonder people are quitting left and right. No accountability, no management, no service.

Enjoyed the position

I’ve enjoyed working with G4S sadly this was a temporary position. The Bank Captains were very helpful as wellI would have stayed longer if it was a permanent position.

Pros

Not at a desk, on your own through the day

None

Its ok

Pay is good for the area but the job is a little mind numbing. During Covid last year I had too little time off because co workers were out on quarantine and no support from home office to cover shifts.

Pros

Good pay for this position

Contras

Long shifts

Easy work, But you're overworked and unapprecoated.

Worked here for 2 years. Was told they don't pick and choose from seniority. If you do good work and have the skills they'll promote you. That's a big lie. I change shifts often because they need coverage on other shifts. I work as much overtime as they ask me and I am one of the very few guards on my site that knows how to do everything. But I remain unappreciated, overworked, and used.

Pros

None

Unorganized Company

If you like coming to work and don't know if you're going to have a full staff then apply now. Terrible company to work for. They don't care about your life outside of the company
