The Hardest Part Of The Job

The hardest part about this job is not knowing if you are doing things right. At the site i am at, training is very short and they will look down on you for not knowing things

Pros

great for college students

Contras

training needs improvment

great environment outside of management

Given the contract and what I saw throughout my time there, G4S proved time and time again that the contracts mattered more than their own officers and that just wasn't something that sat right with me so i had to leave.

Pros

pay, lots of hours

Contras

management, lots of hours

Slow and no way to advance

The management has favorites and they would advance people based on personal issues rather than their work experience. The management should advance people based on merit and work history/record.

dont work here

No pay raises. Barely anytime off a year. Management is horrible. If you are absolutely desperate for a for coming out of the military, it is a decent stepping stone. Nothing more.

Pros

none

Work place culture

Depending on what site you work. Depending on who supervisor you have to fully give training. Team members you work with. Things going on day to day basis.

Looks great at first, Don't be fooled.

The hours they force you to work are ridiculous. I didn't mind working overtime (and originally I welcomed it), but the schedule is unbelievably inconsistent. They will expect you work work a 16 hour shift one day, get off at some late hour, then be up for first shift the next morning, work another 12 hours, then show up that night for a 12 hour 3rd shift. Bottom line, don't EVER expect time off. I understand that some people want the overtime, but I can assure you that with the pay rates at most sites, you will be bumped into the next tax bracket and you will lose ALL of your overtime to taxes, making it not worth it whatsoever. You'll gross $2,000 and only take home $1500. I worked flex (meaning you work all the sites, and lots of overtime) for about 6 weeks, and finally they burned me out. I asked to be taken off of flex, and they agreed. Then they slowly starting asking me for favors helping out at other sites, and now I am basically a full blown flex again against my will. You may think it is worth the pay, but I can assure you it is not.

Better than most Security Companies

G4S trains their employees more than your average mom and pop owned Security Company leading to a more professional work environment. They also stay update on retraining especially when it comes to firearm training and escalation of force practices, which makes it's staff more confident and knowledgeable about handling aggressive situations and communicating with each other. The pay is a little bit better than your average Security Company and they try to set up incentives and bonuses to their staff. There's also room to move up. Not sure if that's a good thing though and have seen a lot of upper management fired or quit. Overall a good company to work for. I would recommend them about other Security Companies.

Pros

International Organization

Contras

Quick turn around for Management

I have never worked for a company that displayed such utter disregard for their employees

Rampant cronyism. As far as G4S is concerned they own you. You are expected to be available at a moment's notice at all times. If they want to call you at 3am to ask you a question about a line item on a report you did 3 weeks ago you had better answer the phone and you had better have an answer for them. Utter disrespect for their employees. They'll lie to you they'll scream at you, they'll cuss you out. They think this is acceptable behavior because they make it clear from day one that you are Emminently replaceable. When I worked for them they literally could not hire people fast enough to make up for the people who were quitting

Pros

If you get on the right contract the pay is a little higher than average

Contras

They pay isn't worth the garbage you'll have to put up with to get it.

poor management

Leadership cares little for employee families and life outside of work. I would not return to this company but if you don't have much of a life I guess it would work.

A Great Job

Only thing about this company is that they don't hire per job per seniority. Others can come aboard and get the higher paid jobs . A really great opportunity to learn about others .

Pros

great staff

Security

The company always asked a lot of its employees but never compensated employees enough. Some locations of work were a lot of fun others not so much. Work life took most of the week just to keep enough hours to be paid enough to live.

Incompetency at its highest level

The management in this company, is similar to most security firms. They are disconnected from entry level employees, with regard to functional and solid leadership. Additionally, as with most contracted security jobs, it is a "one size fits all" mentality. An example is the hiring process where a prospective employee can have a GED or Bachelor's degree plus extensive law enforcement/military/corrections experience, only to be paid the minimum salary, same as the employee with GED and little or no previous experience. This, along with unpredictable scheduling, obsolete and ineffective training, unprofessional management, and basic disregard for its employees, I would not recommend g4s as a company or the job to anyone I considered a friend.

Pros

I saw the opportunity to leave (and took it).

Contras

Incompetent, Unprofessional, Lackadaisical management

Great learning experience

I worked with G4S Secure Solutions for close to 4 years. I enjoyed working with this company. Also, I enjoyed the luxury of being able to transfer within the company. I learned a couple new computer programs and was able to learn CCTV. I enjoyed training and learning about new policies in the company. G4S allows you to continue your education and earn certificates. I enjoyed working with each co-worker I had. We all worked well together and had fun getting the job done. I enjoyed talking with my bosses and they were all open for suggestions.
