Pretty Easy

Salary is not good, lord knows what they charge client but it definitely doesnt pass down to actual guard working odd hours. Not the safest when it comes to Covid safety. Sone rude clients

Pros

Some nice people

Contras

No advancement, non permanent posts. Odd hours for texts at job sites needing coverage

Run away as fast as you can.

I worked as a supervisor for years with no chance of making manager. Favoritism and "pick and choose" of managers buddies before a qualified person.

Pros

I really can't think of any to be honest.

Contras

Everything is just terrible

Team environment

I really loved working for G4S. I felt needed, and appreciated. My manager is very considerate, and wants to make sure that we all are doing good. I honestly have never worked for a better company. They go above and beyond for their employees. That means a lot to me.

Pros

Very easy job

Contras

Covering a shift when someone doesn’t show up for work. But the pay is good.

Not a happy place to work at times

Just go to work, do your job and go home. Hope all things go well during your shift. Not enough staff at critical times. Need more officers during shift after certain timeframes.

Pros

Good place to get started

Contras

Pay scale, vacation time, time offwhen needed. Not enough staff to cover emergencies.

Didn’t work there for long

I didn’t work there for long but it was drama free really. The manager is just mad and have an attitude most of the time. Keep in mind that this job is really boring if your a person that has to be doing something to keep you entertained. You will be sitting there staring at the walls most of the time cause you can’t be on your phone.

Pros

Pay

Contras

Boring

Really good company

Overall G4S is a really good company with good culture and structure. However, everyone that works there is either prior military or law enforcement and that made things difficult because some supervisors aim to make everything a dog and pony show when solutions are a lot simpler.

Pros

Good structure, fair pay, flexible hours, great team spirit

Contras

Some supervisors still think they are drill instructors

Productive work duties

Working under the old management was good however after new management took over, job duties were cut. I recommend this job to individuals who are looking to retire.

Pros

Pay

A fairly decent company to work for

I have been working for G4S a short while now and can say they are a pretty decent company to work for. Typical hours at the JCP contracts 8/9 hours a day. About 9 colleagues on shift including 2 supervisors. Good staff we all get on well. Down points can be stressful job especially when dealing with incidents prepare to face all sorts of abuse and threats from Job centre customers. Booking on and off shifts very easily! Management here is very poor often doing their best for people they choose so there is a lot of favouritism here. The pay is poor for the job you do should exceed £10 an hour. However out of all the current security companies out there G4S has a good reputation. Please managers be fair when giving out shifts don’t pick and choose your favourite staff over others, please change Javelin it is an awful system to use if anything I’d recommend Microsoft office for payroll calendars for shifts and Microsoft teams for all colleagues to keep in touch. Not a bad job to be honest I kind of enjoy it here

Pros

Lunch 45 mins to hour and 2 breaks

Contras

Long time stood about on your feet, dealing with conflict and dangerous situations

Paycheck issues, reduces pay

Payroll is done by hand, resulting in occasional short paychecks. This corrective process typically takes months for correction. They can reduce pay rate and hours permanently. HR forwards all complaints/concerns to your supervisor instead of handling it personally, so don't complain about unprofessional supervisors as they will get worse. Also, nearly everybody in the main office won't wear a mask during the pandemic. Not LGBT friendly, in training they outted a trans employee because "we thought you should know".

Contras

No job security, pay, management, life balance, and unsafe

No training, no direction

They allow their clients to control and dictate what happens within their own company. G4S does not work with you nor train you properly for your site assignment. Then if anything goes wrong or is not up to their standards, you are to blame without notice or proper communication. They have a limited support structure from management.

Pros

On my own

G4S, then called Wackenhut was not a bad company to work for.

This was several years ago 2007-08, but from what l recall, it was not a bad experience. Very organized and professional. The Management or a Representative thereof was usually either available by phone or would come on site. The Pay was decent for the time. The company also took pride in their Uniforms and in the wearing of them: Tan top and pants with the purple &black stripes down the side, and included a Gold Whistle hanging from the right breast pocket.

Pros

Reasonable Pay

Contras

Job Sites

Don't take this job.

Employee turnover was almost weekly. 5 managers in 1 year. OT mandatory. Poor training. Watch your back. Pay changes at every posting and none are reliable. Unless you're one of the lackeys your schedule will change almost daily.

Contras

No breaks. No advancement. Pay inconsistent

They coddle terrible workers and destroy the good workers.

If you do not like to work with lazy,incompetent,cliquish unreliable adult children you would not be a good fit.Coworkers will sit inside on cell phones while others will be working in the elements. Supervision will take the path of least resistance and allow it.Employees will actually defy supervision and do as they please. No accountability.

Pros

None

Contras

Not enough characters to list the cons.

Brainless. Being paid to do nothing.

The company is good in the sense that they try to place you at a POST that is close to your home so that you don't have to travel very far and that the hours are flexible with your outside schedule. The downfalls are that the days are often very long, very boring, and brainless. A typical day at work mostly consists of just standing by the door of a bank all day and nothing else. You cannot play on your phone, listen to music, play sudoku puzzles, read, or even leave for lunch, which is ridiculous if you don't carry a firearm and cannot intervene if there is a robbery anyway. They do not allow employees to work full time (40 hours) a week and just allow them to only work 35 hours a week, which is less than full time. The pay does not pay enough for the cost of living. Occasionally, management will call you at 5:00am in the morning to pick up a shift and expect you to pick up when not many people are awake during that time. In training, you take a class in CPR,/AED and are awarded a certificate, although it feels that you are not truly certified because they don't have you practice on a dummy to see if you perform it correctly and they just show you how to do it instead. No advancement opportunities. My only advice is...take the job if you want easy money or a side job.

Pros

Flexible with location/hours

Contras

Everything

Over time you feel more like a number than a team member.

The contracts are not for the employees and can change without notice. Management only wants warm bodies on site and will tell you whatever it takes to keep you there. You call the HR department and the selection doesn't go through the automated switchboard.

Pros

A paycheck.

Contras

Will always feel that you are expendable
