Not a good place to work

Always getting called in on your days off because someone didn’t show. If your relief doesn’t show up, you can’t go home. Manager is constantly tinkering with the schedule, sometimes changing your shift on your day off, then not letting you know that your next at-work shift has changed. No advancement opportunities. High turnover because of low pay, low morale, and ever-increasing work responsibilities. You have to sign away your rights to breaks and lunches in order to get hired, because providing you with breaks would “create a hardship” for the company. So you work 8-12 (sometimes 16) hours with no breaks. You get vacation time, but you can never use it because your site is always under-staffed.

Pros

Lots of overtime if you want the extra money

Contras

No breaks, expensive healthcare, low pay, no opportunity for advancement

Boring

If you aren’t part of the management you get treated poorly. Always calling you in on your days off. Writing you up for petty things . I was sent home for flu like symptoms and when I came back they tried to write me up for not calling off on time...

Pros

Pay

Contras

The insurance is outrageous the job is boring. Scheduler is unprofessional

Company does not care.

The company and management does not care about you, everyone is always quitting and your pay is Always messed up for some reason. Forget about the company trying to help you solve those problems cause they seem to not care what so ever. They will Wright you up for any to BTW so watch out. 2 out of 5 would not recommend.

I love it!!

G4s is a great security company to work for, everyone is your family! We all get alone and find great ways to help and secure others. I wouldn't rather work for any other security company. 😊

Enjoyed my worksite very much people there were great to work with

The only complaint would be that corporate would not back up what the worksite wanted to do to help out employees at the site like me coming back to a desk position after having my amputation.

Pros

Great people to work with

Contras

Corporate

Great atmosphere.

My typical work day is to sign in on the company phone, call the lead officer and let them know I'm onsite.Set up my Security Officer's Report form, check email's on whether there are any special events happening. Allow people in before the doors open (open at 8a.m.) for testing or meetings as needed. Once the doors unlock on the timer I help customers with directions, where to find Lost And Found. Help get them proper forms such as a claims form or a form for the transit lift program if they have a disability. My management team is awesome. If I need a day off due to a family medical issue they are always there to say go and take care of your family first. Hardest part of my job is getting customers to understand some things are beyond my control. Such as the Lost And Found department being closed and wanting their item. Most enjoyable part is interacting with customers, clients and other personnel and helping them.

Pros

Free bus pass.

Contras

Customers at times.

To many unknowns with company

Good short term job. If your planning on going to school or just in between jobs . Only good pay is on a very few select contracts. And the pay on others is no way enough for the job.

Good as far as the Security Industry Goes;

I thought G4S was a pretty good company to work for as far as the security industry goes. There were a few problems with management for the area, but I am not sure what they were exactly.

Pros

Above average compensation for the industry, ample hours, decent work/life balance, strong culture of ownership and employee engagment

Contras

Issues with paperwork getting lost or not turned in, still security

Working with fellow Security Officers in a professinalmanner.

You would check in with your security badge , log in on computer. Relieve officer from previous shift depending on agreed 2 hour rotation you would either start at lobby checking CCTV monitors, monitor people checking in with ID badges. Or you would do exterior patrolling of grounds and interior of building.

Pros

Day shift

Contras

Grave yard shift

Stable

This company is great for something stable. You could come in and work your scheduled hours and days and everything is great there would be times of mandatory over time which would suck but they were pretty good at rotating who had to stay which is nice.

Overall

Overall working with G4S isnt all that bad, however, the upper management is always having issues with retaining people due to them delivering on contract promises

Poorly managed and places low value on employees

I was hired and signed a contract for a certain rate of pay, and then was never paid that. Instead I was transfered around for a few weeks to fill in for other people, working at a lower rate than I signed up for, then was never offered a permanent position. The stopped returning my calls and never gave me any more work.

A respectable place to get started in Security

G4S is the largest security company in the world, and it shows. G4S is able to offer many things that other security companies struggle with. Uniforms and equipment will be provided, In-house training is the norm. The biggest thing that G4S brings to the table, for many security officers, is the opportunity for constant work. There is very little having to wait by the phone hoping for a call. If you want to work 40+ hours a week, that can nearly always be arranged. There are some issues with being the biggest company in a field though. The in-house training, for example, is heavily tailored to working at G4S, rather than teaching state-wide rules and regulations. This means that while your certifications are transferable to another company, your actual training may not be. You will be provided with a uniform, but getting it replaced can be troublesome, and they may not have the right one for your assigned site available right away. Advancement is another issue. If you are a motivated self-starter, you may find it frustrating trying to advance. Once you are in a contract, it can be difficult to move to another one, and may not be possible at all to advance within that contract. Advancement is available, but you cannot expect that advancement to be smooth or rapid. Additionally, you may find yourself working with people who are far from ideal coworkers. Because G4S has contracts of all sorts, spread out across the state, they are forced to be in a constant state of hiring. They also lose some of their ability to be selective in choosing applicants. As pay is kept low, - 

Pros

Training and equipment provided, job experience, transferable between states

Contras

Low advancement, high turnover, indifferent management

A job where you are easily placed and forgotten about

Worked for them for a year and never had my supervisior come check on me. No direct management at some sites indivduals are easily placed at a site and quickly forgotten about.
