If you have dignity for yourself, at least apply to a reputable organization in the San Diego area. Supervisors do not care about you, site supervisors have no backbones, account managers will see turnover rate as an accomplishment, SD's office is lazy and never gets back to you, at all. The level of micromanagement to justify having the supervisors at these sites is unfathomable. It's like an extension of high school; no real maturity, basic understanding of professionalism when it comes to dealing with other humans is non-existent, conflict management is perceived as how to further deteriorate relationships as quickly as possible. The tasks at these sites will leave you absolutely bored out of your mind, meanwhile being lambasted you're doing all things wrong.Bottomline: Waste of time, they want you to quit before they finish the mountains of paperwork they wish to build on you to expedite the process. You're on your own with SD sites.
Pros
Pay is ok
Contras
Unpaid lunches, micromanagement, toxic supervisors, no chance of advancement, turnover extreme

The contracts are not for the employees and can change without notice. Management only wants warm bodies on site and will tell you whatever it takes to keep you there. You call the HR department and the selection doesn't go through the automated switchboard.
Pros
A paycheck.
Contras
Will always feel that you are expendable

abusive business. I was overworked, sometimes working for a whole month without getting a day off. lost wages. and worse of all, I was fired from G4S for "defending myself" when i was attacked by a car-burglar while at work. terrible management, they will sacrifice their employees health and safety for their own gains.

I really like working for G4S. I work 8 hour graveyard shifts (2000-0400) 40 hours a week from Wednesday to Sunday. I do wish I could work a morning shift Monday through Friday and receive more pay so I could have a life outside of work with family as well. Working for G4S has been a great experience I learned how to have even better customer service skills since I work at a motel and there are guest I have to speak to all the time. The hardest part of the job would have to be the hours. I never have time off with my family because they have to go too work and school on my off days which are Monday and Tuesday. The most enjoyable part of the job has to be that I like the company and we have nice uniforms.
Pros
Breaks
Contras
hours, shifts not available, pay rate

Overall it's a great place to work if you have reliable transportation and patience. They have a great online system and benefits access. My only con is that the hire volume and amount of work available does not match.

I worked on the Bank of America Account. The upper management was not respectful and made no effort to change how they engaged with employees. Many of the people in the main office were neither LE, military, nor Certified Guards, and were disrespectful of guards and office staff. My most intense gripe is that they wanted you to work 6 days (banking hours) and they were not accomodating about days off or assisting with splitting shifts to permit appointments. When they called to ask that I work on a scheduled day off (which happened frequently) and I (ocassionaly) said "no, thank you", I was given a guilt-trip about work ethic and told I was a "lousy team player". I hear the company has improved, but I would not rush to work here. Their flex opportunities can have you driving all over the county. The pay is not great. There was no room for advancement. I left in mid-2018. **I took the job because G4S is an international company and I was hoping to get a foot in and do contractor work overseas.
Pros
autonomy, little oversight
Contras
no advancement, poor communication

Too many points of detraction from professionalism to waste my time writing out. Just don't do it. Driving cars without basic safety equipment (like seat belts), and lower pay than street beggars.
Pros
Easy work
Contras
Too many to count. Elevator to financial and professional death

fast paced work schedule and not so flexible management. asked to work more than 40 hours in one week end and just paid flat rate when I should have gotten triple time.

very respectful of my background. I really liked that about them. because of my background I wasn't started as entry level with them. they made me a CPO, top of the list, but other companies have started me out on the bottom.

I found G4S when I lived in Honolulu Hawaii- got hired in October of 2015 and believe that instead of putting you in an "on call or Flex Officer position" they should really look at the Talent that an Officer has rather than just looking at you as a warm body to fill in the holes (taking the place of another Officer because they have personal issues or simply because they need time off. It has gotten better because Upper Management always changed due to the "nature of the Security Business" Yes they do have favorites but it all depends on job performance on who they select to put Full time.
Pros
401k plan & Good job
Contras
Healthcare, promotion
