Excellent benefits, good pay (danger). Periodic firearms training and certification. Schedule choices depend on availability at signup, priority granted by seniority.

Cons:
-clients can request you be removed from a site for such reasons as "general defiance"


-some people REALLY hate security guards


-you work some long, boring hours (12-10) doing nothing or being in constant public eye


-Management do not believe you; they believe in the client more because they need to keep contracts. Union rep says the london branch manager has 4 complaints levied at him in 5 days. Really speaks for itself.


- schedulers get fired like GOT characters meeting an end. I worked at G4S 8 months and have had 4 schedulers get fired or quit. It makes life difficult.


-you want to work 12 hours? and drive 2 hours (14 in total)? be my guest. and for peanuts too, some sites offer $14.50.


-post orders can be on point or include nothing at all. No, I am not kidding you. Some post orders include what you need to do, what to know, where to go etc. Other times you will receive an email stating "talk to X when onsite" , and when you get onsite, things can get real lost in translation and the client can be very manipulative and authoritative.


A typical day at G4S:

Pre COVID:

want to sit in an empty warehouse all day and night? punch in code xyz0 at the door and sit in the lunch room with fruit flies and god knows what stuck on the walls. Oh, and also the bathrooms are all clogged with huge number 2's.


During COVID:

"Welcome plz sanitize your hands and follow the arrows"


customer: "no i'm fine"


*reveals hands covered in blood and dirt with a filthy bandage on it*


customer: "that stuff really stings"

Great management, helpful staff. Fast-Paced, liked working here. Learned a lot. laid back work culture yet productive, less stress to work around when you know you can talk to your managers any time.

Not everyone contributed to the success of the team, salary was a joke, no room for advancement, I stayed only because of the few good employees there.

There are few crew members who make the job fun, however the benefits to work life is basically non-existent and the pay is a joke, they talk a good game but when it is time to deliver it EXCUSES, EXCUSES , they FORGET ALL the GOOD you do, but if you MESS UP ONCE or few times, oh LORD have MERCY on your soul.
Points positifs

People are complaining about no job advancement.. Its security... Not much higher u can go then supervisor. Pay is mostly more than minimum wage.. If you want a high paying job.. Go to University. As for working lots of hours and no family time... Say no not available for a shift or 2. No big deal. You work however many hours you choose to work unless you have a perm site. Every job is what you make it. Benifits are good as not many companies offer that. Also G4S has a union. Your protected. As for people saying people don't listen... Did you talk? Ive never had a problem go unsolved... All n all its a good company for security... Its security... You get what you get!
Points positifs
Diff sites.. Higher wages
Points négatifs
Its security

Management and Supervisors are lazy, poorly trained, unfair, and do not want women working there. It seems they are threatened by women because they follow the rules. They hire people that don't speak English well and you have to train them not the Supervisor or manager. The pay is usually different per site and you never have a secure position no matter how good an employee you are. Management and Supervisors don't know security, like Fire Lanes, and don't care to learn or follow-up up with employees that have taken the course but don't know anything. You may immediately lose your position from lies told by other employees so they can get your position or their friend can, there is no investigation. They allow law breaking to appease the contractor. Safety means nothing to Supervisors. Also, no one does anything about other staff being late. Some are consistently late by up to half an hour and you can't leave your post or you are fired.
Points positifs
None
Points négatifs
They are losing contracts

Worked 3 rotations in a camp setting with this employer.
The group of guards I worked with were cliquish and if they didn't like you made sure you didn't last.


The work environments in the camp were gossipy and childish. There is 0 support from management.


The camp guards are treated like "mall cops" from the shift OC all the way up to the head of camp security.


The staff were nervous about losing the contract to a competitor so were telling the gate guards to include useless info in their log book in order to give the appearance of being busy.


Management and staff are very insecure individuals.


Pay was decent but one could get a labourer position with another camp employer and fair just as well or better
Points positifs
2 week rotations
Points négatifs
rules for the sake of rules, a childish, gossipy environment

May be big company and this is why some mistakes go unchecked. This company is greedy, no management skills to run it. They can change your wage any time they want. Management Never checks with employees about their sudden rash of judgements. Other people mistakes may land on your page and you may be dismissed without knowing why. This company like wagon that runs on three wheels that runs only on a flat road. If the guard spends hundred years working for G4S he will never be noticed or rewarded or actually getting pay raises (may get pay cut). bad work culture. Over all, not good company to work for.
Points positifs
you are invesible, do what you want
Points négatifs
same pay for 15 years

For this short term employment I did not enjoy. I felt that I was bullied where I was located with the company. For 12 hours I had to sit in a chair not able to move and watch patients that had been considered unstable and were placed on "forms." When a patient in the hospital is "formed" that means they have to be monitored all hours of the day and night till the form has expired or been removed.

The hardest part for me is the fact I was not able to move around and it being a very slow pace job. For the 12 hours we were only allowed to have one 30 minute break which was hard as well on the body.
Points négatifs
Long hours with 1 short break, no stable hours, rude co-workers, no benefits, low wage

Its a good place to work, lots of proof reading is involved. It is hectic at times but pretty steady. Management is pretty cooperative.
Points positifs
Paid Lunches, Overtime, Enjoyable Work Environment
Points négatifs
Everything is Timed. You can get behind schedule very easily if not alert and prioritized.

The management does not care about staff, and will do anything to make themselves look good. very unorganized and demeaning.

G4S was a good place to work. Sometimes they have the wrong person in Management, and this causes problems with the staff and Clients.

Loved the job, but not the company; and it appears they did not like me too much either. Never knew what day you might be working, or whether or not you would keep your shift. Management was fair, but intimidated by the union. My co-workers, if casual, where decent enough, but full time employees, well they lacked professional qualities, in my opinion. Personally, I would not work for this company again.

G4S is with out a doubt the worst company i have ever worked for as a armed guard in edmonton the managers are the worst people in the world they will treat you like a tool and suspend you when you refuse todo unsafe work they brushed of the employees that are stressed out over the university shooting no concealing available. With out a doubt the most corrupt money hungry place to work ever.
