Laid back job with plenty of free time.

Evaluación destacada de Indeed

La evaluación más útil según Indeed
The amount of responsibilities is quite minimal and the sites basically take care of themselves. This leaves a lot of down time. Most of this down time is spent talking with coworkers or doing extra responsibilities to fight boredom. Overall the pay is not the best, but it leaves plenty of time for homework which is optimal for a college student. There is no fullfilment at all, it's just another job that happens to appeal to prior military or college attendees.

Pros

Free time and decent pay for the responsibilities

Contras

Poor, expensive benefits, incompetent managers, moving up in the company is a myth and only for those whom management prefers.

It's a job and nothing more.

G4S is the same as most other large security firms. If you get hired as flex officer you'll work a lot for the first few months but once everyone is done going on vacation you'll be lucky if you get twenty hours a week after that. They will expect you to be available 24/7 at first, so looking for a second job is out of the question. Most security jobs are pretty easy though. You're basically just a receptionist who also might have to do CPR and first aid. The people at the Colorado Springs office(i.e. management) are gossips. People at one site whom you barely talk to will know your business when they obviously shouldn't. It's obvious who tells them these things. Getting time off requests approved always takes multiple attempts.

Only Good ad Supplemental Income

The sites G4S has are staffed with mostly friendly and hard working people. Problem is the pay per contract tends to be very low at most locations. Also the office branch management is terrible. They don't care about promoting officers already at locations. Only getting warm bodies to fill slots. So even if a better paying position opens up at a site your contracted to and on site management for the contract may want to promote you they tend to get bypassed by the main office. Which is unfortunate. Good as a temporary job or for supplemental income if you're retired or have other income coming in. Not as a main means of income. Could vary by branch responsible for officers because most issues outside the benefits being sub par and expensive appear to be due to local branch management.

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.

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.

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.

Great workplace

Working with G4S was a great experience. I was a roving security officer, and was in charge of closing down the campus I was assigned to. The people I worked with I still keep in touch with today. Very great group of people. The best part of the job was the people I met, and helped out.

Pros

Benefits

Contras

Conflicting schedule
