Typical large security provider

Zero work to life balance, management that doesn’t communicate across the board, varied policy enforcement, lots of nepotism on individual projects. Some projects are so mismanaged you get new supervisors every week. One week you will get the schedule two weeks ahead, the next week three days before Monday. Hours are terrible, rotating you through shifts with no regard for sleep or life schedules. Can get 60 hours one week, then without any reason have no hours or one shift the next. Company just got bought out by an even bigger company, likely to only get worse.

Pros

Decent entry level pay

Contras

Terrible to no benefits, no retirement, nepotism to the extreme, wildly varied policy enforcement

Depends on the day

If you worked security before it’s not bad at all actually most days were pretty great, but if you’re new to security you will feel growing pains trying to settle in at first for your position

The company is always understaffed for the client

Promised a stable schedule, but because they are always understaffed for the client, the permanent officers with tenure are always having their schedules change. Unable to maintain a viable work/life balance.

Pros

None

Contras

No work/life balance; overtime without breaks; unstable scheduling

Not good

Avoid like the plague. No raises, management is terrible. Never work for a contracted security company, as they will take most of your pay, and not even give you a reference.

Pros

very few

Contras

plenty

The working environment at G4S was not very good

The area that I worked in at G4S was not very interested in my development. If there was a problem with access to a site the supervisor in the office was more interested in going home himself than dealing with the customer; this could mean that the access problem isn't resolved so that if an alarm the same reason comes in then we have to go through the procedure again. Mainproblems with access are dea

Pros

Being able to work on your own

Doing interior and exterior patrols

There are some great employees that work there that can help you achieve success outside of the company. They are very helpful. There are places outside the state where you can advance in the company and there are people who are willing to help you on how to advance to the next level.

G4S is a stepping stone for better.

at first I enjoyed working with G4S. Then I realized the training I received was inadequate for the location I was sent to. When I moved locations due to supervisor disagreements, I enjoyed my new location until they no longer cared about my mental health when over working me and me needing time off.

Pros

If you want to work a lot, there is always an opportunity to hustle.

Contras

Not enough training.

Not employee friendly

Make you feel guilty for needing time off. Family isn't important. Can't get enough employees. Employees Feel mistreated by supervisors and for being a security company it is very relaxed.

Has age discrepency

This company doesn't want older people with security experience working for them. They prefer young people who don't show up for work or doesn't want to do their job.

Always on Schedule

Time is money with this job, patrols are done on time,and there radio checks and PDAs' to ensure that you are on time.I worked at the DuPont hotel in Wilmington,DE. 11 floors,2 kitchens,close to 50 keys,a parking garage, a ballroom, and all require an unlimited amount of checks.

Unappreciated career

Stressful job that requires you to be alert and on your feet. You have to entertain yourself during slow times. Due to high turn around there is chances to pick up over time. Most need for workers is grave shift so you have no opportunity to work any other times even if they have a 24 hour operation. HR is bad with keeping people and providing work hours. I say this because I went from working 40hrs at $15/hr to 32hrs at $15/hr. This dropped my salary per month because it is like working 40hrs at $13/hr. I also did not get scheduled when returning from basic military training. When I turned in my two week noticed for a better job they stop scheduling all together, so i was pretty much laid off when I got back. I was lucky I was in the process of working somewhere else during this time. This work is the most unappreciative and non respective in terms of helping people, since we can only watch and try to passively and sternly deter and/or keep violators there until police arrives.

Pros

Overtime work, management is good, steady work, parking provided

Contras

Dealing with people that don't respect what you do, dealing with activity that could put you in danger, not provided with self defense items, have to wait till police arrive and not chase or hold people, mostly only have grave shifts available

Decent Employment

Working with G4S has not been a bad experience at all. However, I do believe that there is room for many improvements. I don't feel as though area supervisors really care or take in consideration the distance that people are willing to or have to travel for work. Also, there isn't much room for advancement depending on your site.
