I started working for G4S when I was 18and worked there till I was 25 and honestly the experiences you get are unreal sometimes but you do need to put the work in on the graveyard positions as its not all "free gigs and access to festivals"with the current climate and events being none existent you really do miss the job for what it was as most staff are now doing hospital and job centres instead of the other bonuses that come with G4 like live events, football and conferences.I have no faults with the company other than you can be working long hours and thown about abit so if its not ideal for you don't sign up for the job!

Pros

work when you want, get to travel, paid holidays and breaks

Contras

long hours sometimes in bad weather conditions

Avoid, painful.

The C.I.T. driver role I had was both, dangerous and pressurised. You cannot do enough for the management. Planning is scattered, routes are poorly thought out. Management constantly put you under pressure and threaten you.

Pros

Bank holidays, sick pay.

Contras

Long hours, pressure and threats

G4s

A once good job ruined by substandard / unknolegeable/ unrealistic borderlibe delusional management. Very poor man management all they use is the threat of disciplinary action in an effort to justify their existence and make their bonus. Once a family orientated business now prefers to treat customers and staff with contempt

Pros

None

Contras

delusional expectations from unqualified management

Good place to work

Working for g4s is good for the vents side of things, you’ll see things people pay thousands to see but don’t jump into the job if you can’t deal with people and prepare to have a thick skin

Avoid

Poor management. No proper training. Hostile working environment. Very unhelpful in training but quick to blame if you get something wrong. Felt like a prison. Worst company I’ve ever worked for. Avoid if possible.

Rubbish Company

Management have no people skills, avoid this sham of a company, they are that short staffed they are sub contracting guards, they are bound to lose the dwp contract the next time it is up for renewal. The guards, most of them are pensioners and aren't interested in backing you up if any trouble starts, they need a complete overhaul of their recruitment process.

A very stressful environment

I would never work for this unprofessional outfit again. The managers have no respect for you. They force you to work 72 hours a week and if you don't agree to this they will put you into a disciplinary. G4S take advantage of the working time rules which do not protect security staff in any way. If you are a relief security officer they only want to give you 1 day off a week and when your on 12 hour shifts, this leaves only enough time to have a sleep and recover from your long shift. One of their staff recommended me under a scheme in which they were supposed to be paid. No money was forth coming which means they are dishonest. Thank god I have left.

Security Guard Job centre

You can be sent to sites 40 miles from your home, they dont pay you for standby they expect you to be on call from 6.30 am to 12 incase they need you. Basic Rate for evening, weekend, and night shifts. If you get redirected from one site to another you dont get paid. You struggle to get holidays. The central Scotland managers have no man management or planning skills. Theywinot re

Its money. You get paid.

Go in. Do hours. Get paid. Build shifts. Turn up and be reliable. It is zero hour. Handy for on side work. Advise get SIA licence badge. Its a free course. Check online. Badge cost 220. Lasts 3 years. More shifts available then. Then do door guard training. More shifts. Nice bunch of guys. Straight laced. Good team. Work together. You will get clique groups. But in what industry wont you get that. Even then everyone respects the job. Be yourself. Turn up.....on time. Do job. Get paid. No big heads. Its not that kind of job. Keep that for customers. Good luck.

Pros

Good guys. See events. Good paid breaks.

Contras

Long standing. Javelin employee system.

Slavery

You cant have family commitments with this mob. They expect you to fully commit to them and forget your family. Management couldn't care less, all their interested in is meeting their targets. G4s expect results from paying minimum wage or just above. Job itself can be demoralizing and depressing. My take home pay on a good month is £1350. Not even living wage and just above minimum wage. Pension scheme is a joke. Training is nonexistent but you will fill in training matrix to say you have been trained after you've been pressured in to signing it. Bullying is rampant from intimidation to victimisation. 28 days holiday but that includes bank holidays. No double time for working on bank holidays, (on some contracts). Ill just mention that you cant carry your holidays over. But no doubt you would have used them all anyway. Management will not tell you anything. For example if you have a doctor's appointment your supposed to get paid 3 hours for that appointment after you have produced your appointment card. They keep that a secret for years. Well what do you expect it was eating in to their profits. You may have to take days holiday for appointments. Am not joking either. I could go on about this slave driving trade of g4s but I hope you get the point. 12 years I've been with this company and it gets worse every year. So do yourself and your family a favour and stay away.

Pros

Still thinking about that one

Contras
