excellent working experiences

Evaluación destacada de Indeed

La evaluación más útil según Indeed
Training is good. Some staff have attitude towards certain races. It is unionized so senority is a headache. Some Indian sups have preferences only to their race.

Union keeps bad workers safe

Good people, but the union keeps all the bad people safe. So many people take time off faking sickness, especially on a sunny day! Union steps in when management wanted to discipline them.

Productive and fun place to work

I found that your thoughts and what you bring to the table matter here. They are inclusive, fair and open. The team matters and their health and safety are first and foremost at this family run company.

Terrible work culture

If one is looking for supportive, good work ethics, professionalism and integrity is paramount to the organization, do not even apply here as the culture is so terrible.

A position meant to be there for everyone to blame the operation on

No appreciation of work what so ever, you could be the best worker in the company but if you speak up you get cut off instantly. Please do due diligence before signing up.

Stressful!!

Your breaks are never on time. Passengers are very rude. Managers do not have your back when passengers break rules. You will often be given graveyard shifts.

Decent pay but an unbalanced/unfair scheduling system

The training is just about adequate. there's a lot to learn & remember at first, but the flow comes with time. The job itself is ok & it pays well for what you do, but the work/life balance and schedule flexibility is very bad. Like all companies, everyone respects the seniority of other employees, but G4S (under contract from Catsa) operate a totally unbalanced & unfair scheduling system. Employees should not expect a shift including a single Sat OR Sun off for many years and the same for booking a vacation week during the peak seasons of summer and the holidays. Shift modifications & leave of absences are also seldom accommodated for all but the most extreme circumstances. Sure, they have a shift giveaway/trade system, but it's old-school archaic, slow and getting someone to work a weekend shift is practically impossible. There is no accommodation for students and people with other jobs, the company will expect you to put them before all else in life. The union appears to focus on protecting the feelings of the more senior employees. Immediate management are mostly friendly & try their best to help you out, but can only work within the parameters they have.

Pros

Pay, benefits, a mostly friendly work environment

Contras

Shift and vacation scheduling, An inefficient union

Terrible place to work

Been working with G4S for over 2 years at YVR Airport and I absolutely HATED it. Management and Scheduling don't care about you. They treat you like dirt. You want to modify a shift or take a day off? Forget about it. They won't ever approve it even if your dying from cancer. They've started to doggy tag everyone, tracking everyones moves. CAN I NOT USE THE WASHROOM IN PEACE? They hire complete idiots, everyone is two faced and A LOT OF DRAMA GOES DOWN. Everyone sleeps around with each other just to make it to the top. You have managers AND coworkers sexually harassing the females. You have everyone spreading rumours about each other and what does management do? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. They don't care about anyone or the health of their employees

Pros

Health Coverage

Contras

Management & coworkers

It's okay

I really enjoyed working here the first year, then I don't know what happened in management but it went down hill very fast. Scheduling makes this job extremely stressful, to get a day off you pretty much need someone on their death bed before they will give you a day off. You need to be here minium 5 years to MAYBE just MAYBE get a Saturday or Sunday off. They also implemented some tracking devices you need to punch in where you are going so they monitor your every movement even if you go to the washroom. Flexibility used to be fantastic till G4s decided they didn't like the shift give aways and made everyone take full time lines so no one can give away. You will also get in trouble for give away shifts even though it Is our right and in the union hand book They are very behind the times everything is still done by paper and pen. If you speak French you will get very bad shifts as they have different bidding lines (shifts) for them. People who have been here 5+ year who are French still get terrible shifts. They get shifts as if they just started. Students will be screwed over, you will definitely not get a part time line (shift). They do not accommodate students. In fack they accommodate no one. There is room for advancement into management but I suggest you be very good as a screening officer and make sure everyone upstairs likes you, do as they say and raise no questions. You are not a Human being to the people upstairs in that office all you are is a number, they don't care about your life outside of work, and its extremely sad.

Pros

Benefits

Scheduling, flexibility, management

Pad your resume and get out

Crazy culture where they are constantly changing the goals. Zero support for middle managers. Basically disposable employees as there is constant turnover in all departments. The union is strong and the brains of the operation. The company bows to the union and will sacrifice their young (managers) instead of fixing issues.

Pros

Resume builder

Contras

Zero job security

great team, poor management

G4S is a relatively new company on the air security market and they care more about their profit then their employees. Team is great, that helps to go trough the daily stress load, demands from management are high but the salary is average.

Pros

flexibility, benefits, carrer opportunities for emploees

Contras

management, stress level

Not too bad but can be better

Its not a bad place to work for but there is plenty room for improving. Management staff are most often professional. Not too much room for advancing in my situation but for others it might be different. The communication needs improving down the pyramid lines to the employees. Also there can be improvement in caring for the well-being of the employees such as lunch room and the stocking up of these lunchrooms, timely breaks. No extra benefits such as coffee or simple things that other companies offer for free so its very basic in that department but again maybe it depends on the job description or position. The best advantage is the flexibility of schedule can work more or less as there is a very active shift trading.

Pros

Flexibility of schedule

Contras

Breaks, no coffee or such

Professional work environment

The work environment is definitely positive and welcoming. The staff is very understanding and helpful. I do not think there is anything difficult with this job as it is pretty straight forward. However it is extremely repetitive which really causes you to become robotic to the job. I understand there is routine related tasks in every and any job however most of the jobs I have worked it has always been a dynamic environment. My co-workers are very understanding, helpful, and mature. Management I think needs a little bit of work, there's always room for improvement but I think they are headed in the right direction.
