Not a bad gig

Evaluación destacada de Indeed

La evaluación más útil según Indeed
My experience wasn't bad. I always could depend on this company for a great paying salary. I had military and criminal justice degree so that's what helped. The post were good and didn't have a problem getting time off.

G4S is okay

It all depends on what account you are placed at. Each account is different. Some well paying, many are not. Hours vary greatly. You might have great hours, or you might have the worst work schedule imaginable. Sometimes, you might work doubles at the last minute. They try to keep you and retain you. Their insurance was HMO, which was horrible. Their 401K isn’t matched. . If you get placed at a nice account, the job is awesome. If the account is bad. The job will suck.

Once trained you are working mostly by yourself.

You mostly have clear orders. It is doing the same tasks hour after hour. Working in a safe environment with friendly people. The hardest part of the job is sitting sometimes not doing anything.

Needs better management

Coworkers were good to work with. It was a good place to start in security. They helped get all certifications I needed. On site management needs to get on the ballot when complaints are made and actually take them seriously.

a good place to work.

The only issues I have is the medical benefits they give you are very poor. They make you have to travel a long distance for health care which they base your benefits on where you live if you get HMO or PPO. Not happy at all about that I think you should be able to get which ever one you prefer pertaining to your Doctors that you have not make you see the Doctor's they want to pay for.

Pros

overtime if you want to work more hours.

Contras

Health care

Job security and multiple locations

One thing I love about G4S is the fact the company is one of the biggest security companies in the world. This makes it easier for people who want to move out of state and even out of the country to find a new job, if they wish to continue working in the security field. Talk to your area supervisor if you plan to move in the future, they can accommodate and refer you to sites where you plan to relocate. A typical day is checking in contractors and other visitors. You keep an eye on the cameras and answer any phone calls regarding alarms and other issues, which is very minimal. At my current site, communication between employees and site supervisor is minimal, which can be difficult when an employee needs to take off a day. A few months before I am writing this review, this was not the case. I also feel like there is minimal advancement in the workplace, especially if your current site has a lack of officers who are trained properly. I do not believe that should be another employee's issue. Overall, I do enjoy the benefits. My health insurance is very inexpensive, but it's very limited and I get a discounted gym membership. I rarely feel like I have to work extra days as well. All the officers I work with are friendly.

Pros

Lots of down time, paid breaks and lunch, availability to relocate

Contras

Management is not very responsive and communication is minimal

Security

A typical day on the job was to inspect cargo and monitor who arrived and left the business area. It's slow-pace environment which is great if that's what you're looking for. Coworkers were nice to work with.

Great Company

Management there is absolutely wonderful. From time to time someone will bring in donuts in the morning. Most of the time, you sit at the front desk and greet the employees and check their identification so insure safety, and that is most important part of my job making sure the facility is safe and secured at all times.

Pros

great communication and nice people to work for.

Contras

Not much to do in spare time, and not really flexible with your schedule.

Fine

Security companies don't have a great reputation and with good reason. G4S is like many, but they have good accounts if you have the right experience. However this also means it can be hard for them to fill spots when they need new people, so you might work extra hours while understaffed. Management is good, in my experience, but there is little to no room for advancement if you aren't on the very bottom. Since I have a good site, a promotion would actually lead to a decreased wage. The major complaint is that if you work OT in a Holiday weak, they won't give you both premiums.
