If you are offered a job with G4S at the Phillip Morris MC, you can come in either as a CPO ($15/hr) or a TSO (I think they get $13). CPOs are required to have prior military, law enforcement, or corrections experience. Frankly the prior military and LEO's tend to be the most reliable folks on the team. While the work is not very challenging, not all posts have an equal workload. (If you like to stay busy, volunteer for interior patrol or F Gate). After a couple of years on site I can say that management does try to be fair to all officers, but often falls short in that area. Better positions are offered to certain officers without being openly posted. Others call out from work on a regular basis, putting their fellow officers and supervisors in a bind but not being held accountable. Dissent and honest grievances are rewarded with a transfer off the account. The upside is that you can usually get overtime, especially if you are willing to come in at short notice for double shifts or on your days off.
Pros
Good pay for the area. Overtime usually available.
Contras
Some posts do a lot more work for the same money.

Its easy to make lots of money working with G4S overtime is always available; Job security is guaranteed you would have to do something extremely stupid to get fired if removed from one site you are guaranteed to be places at another

The Project managers and captains here are evil. They will throw you under the bus to cover their tale and make up things to suspend you. It’s a quick job to get if you’re in a bind but don’t stay long.

To put it simply, they do Not care about you. Overtime is non-existent unless they are desperate or your coworkers drop don’t show up. No compensation for gas if/when you have to drive long distances to get to a site. If your supervisor/captain takes time off, good luck. HR is horrible with responding to you. Your best bet is to email them if you have questions. If someone new takes over making schedules, be prepared for Everything to go out of wack. They change the schedules completely, like they do not check past schedules to see how they were made. If you offer flexible hours, they will run you ragged when they get the chance. You have to hope you work with reliable people otherwise you Will be left pulling surprise double shifts because your coworkers just simply do not show up. There are no repercussions for it either, or if there are it takes Months of repeated behavior to get a slap on the wrist. Some sites have you working completely alone, which does not always feel safe. You get one week of paid vacation if you work at a site for a full year, but if you change sites at any time then it starts over to be careful of that. Awful hours and pay, just not worth it. This job is soul sucking.
Pros
Flexible shifts, occasional approved overtime for special contracts, time and a half pay for overtime/holidays
Contras
No gas compensation, no sick pay, pay is not worth the travel time/distance, poor management/HR

There is no communication and when the managers talk to you they talk to you like you were two year old. Everything that they do is last minute masks and all arrangements to day before
Pros
There are no Pros to the job you work you get paid that's it
Contras
Healthcare is terrible $8, 000 deductible I've never heard such a thing

With G4S having multiple contracts in the area, there were multiple opportunities for me to advance & work extra hours at other locations. My schedule was consistent, luckily.

-Management is terrible, no such thing as a set schedule so if you apply make sure your checking your hrs daily because they are able to change your workdays and times without notifying you. Not military friendly so if you have reserve duty be mindful. Will not notify you of potential work hazards and don't make much effort to accommodate the needs of older employees.

Good job if you are single and have no family at home. Work overtime when it best fits management and they will try their best to reduce overtime when it best fits them. In other words, go to work and your relief calls off, they make you stay a extra 4 to 8 hrs, and at the end of the pay period have a part timer work one of your shifts to get rid of your extra time.........Good luck there....
Pros
Good EMPLOYEES .
Contras
Want so many qualifications for jobs, and pay so little..

A decent place to work, especially if you are a student and/or just starting in life or wanting a retirement job. Not the best for a person raising a family, but every job has its place in life and this is a good way to meet needs when needs are low.

This job needs better management for the employees. Making it more diffcult for you to work with alot of unessercary test that doesnt pertain to your job duties. G4S management are making officers take a Critical Test for a 911 dispatcher so if you dont pass the test you can lose your position. This is not fair for the employees who has been with this company for 10 years or more. Its insane and unfair.

This company is horrible but it’s a job. They won’t fire anyone even if they break rules and regulations. They are sexist and show signs of racism. I got passed up for multiple problems because “lack of experience” but they gave the position to someone has no experience to my 3 years. They allow other contractors to run the company and they have no back bone when it comes to supervisors. It’s a job.

They will hire pretty much anyone so you have a mixed caliber of people. It's fairly hard to get fired no matter how bad of an employee you are. So if you just need a job, this is your place. They absolutely do NOT care about their employees or even the fulfillment of their contracts except to the extent to get paid. I've worked for them twice in two states filling two positions, both were equally a bad.

The rules where changed for each officer as the manager saw fit. You can't print one schedule but change it everyday I have never worked anywhere that this happened in my life.

The job pays pretty low for an armed position and the job itself is very mentally draining. You pretty much stand outside the bank regardless of weather to act as an "armed visible deterrent" against would-be robbers. Speaking of which, you only get two 5 minute breaks to warm up or cool off. Otherwise you're expected to deal with the heat and cold regardless of the dangers it can cause. This is the only armed position you can have if you don't have prior military/police experience or a degree. I was told that the only move up was to become a supervisor, but that's about it. Otherwise, you have no room to advance. It's a very stagnant job that has you standing around before the bank opens and a bit after it closes. You get two 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch break for an 8 hour shift. You also work alone, which feels like a safety risk. I'd feel much safer working in teams of two, but then it would cost G4S more money. So of course you're on your own. They issue old Model 64 .38 Special revolvers that are heavily abused and the ammunition they give you is subpar and old. I had to replace mine with new ammunition that wouldn't pose a risk of not being effective if fired. Grooming standards are silly too. I have a short, full beard that is trimmed and neat but they make you shave everything off except a military-styled mustache. G4S tries to make itself out to be a "militaristic" company, but they sure as don't follow through on it. Low pay, little to no room for growth and ridiculous standards for their "higher end" positions are just absurd. I - más...
Pros
Consistent pay.
Contras
Stagnant, no room to advance.

The management at g4s is ok. They care about your life for the most part. If everyone does their part it works out. Work life balance is good just depends on management
