The job assignment was great However, the lack of employees following policy was the worst and lack of disciplinary actions by management. It was disappointing to see the double standard for a international company.
Vorteile
nice uniform

Does not abide by their company policies

A security job asking for a heavy background to get in, prior police, military or a 4 year degree, just to get mediocre pay at best, some posts have you work non stop for hours, and others are just a constant presence of security, aka standing around. Definitely nothing long term to get here.
Vorteile
Some clients are nice
Nachteile
Terrible benefits, no sick days, bad management

G4S is like every other big security company out there, they don't care about you and you are just a number to them. Typically with these big security companies your experience comes down to what contract you're on and your management. I was on a decent paying contract, but had horrible management and the clients management was even worse. Prepare to be micromanaged. If you don't mind walking aimlessly in circles and scanning tags every 10 feet or standing in one place for many hours, this is the job for you! I have never heard a company use the word or phrase "fire" or "you will get fired if____" so many times in my life. They will threaten termination for just about any little action as a scare tactic from the very first day of orientation.
Vorteile
Pay depending on contract
Nachteile
Horrible benefits, You are just a number to them

If you want to get after it and put in hours, come in with the right attitude, on time and with the correct uniform and you’ll be treated like a professional. Pay is better than other companies I’ve seen and you’ll work with higher quality teammates in your guard force.
Vorteile
Great locations
Nachteile
Standing post, but that’s the job right?

I joined G4S in NYC at the beginning of 2019 being very optimistic and passionate about my new job (I switched my career from retail management). It turned out that G4S in New York is horrible. People in the main office don’t care about employees professional growth. Once they put you on the site you have to deal with biased supervisors, favoritism, lies, manipulation, sometimes disrespect and mostly lack of appreciation. Favoritism and biased supervisors, manipulative HR along with lack of appreciation, horrible communication and lack opportunities for growth are the biggest problem in this place.

No job security, they can not sustain their accounts, poor management, no advancement, the pay is ridiculous, one minute you making $19 the next minute you're making $12. Very high turnover rate. There's somethings you can like about G4s but it doesn't like you back. If you really need a job go ahead and work but be looking for something else.
Vorteile
It's something better than nothing
Nachteile
Everything else

I enjoy working for G4S. They are very supportive and will help you advance as long as you're pro-active. I see a lot of people complaining on here but I think its because they expect something for nothing. You have to speak up if you want something.
Vorteile
flexible work schedule.

Little to no hope for advancement in the company paired with terrible pay and a terrible attitude from the corporate offices ("G4S doesn't pay you, the client does.") make G4S a terrible employer. Stay far, far away.

There are no opportunities for advancement. And a lot will depend on your post. I worked the Publix post and here are the pros: -Plenty of overtime available. -Bike/Outdoors uniform is pretty cool and comfortable. -You get to meet and socialize with plenty of people.Cons-No advancement opportunities. You can’t make a career out of this. -Standard regular uniform and cowboy hat are goofy and silly- looking. -Standard company- issued firearm is .38 Revolver, which is very outdated. -No brainwork involved. A lot of 'doing- nothing'. I felt like a loser. -No authority to do anything. I felt very useless. -You get in trouble easily for simply doing things out of good faith. -Management shows no appreciation. -Management always sides with client even when client is wrong.

I've worked with the company for 1.5 years and have dealt with 4 different home offices for different assignments. The running theme is poorly trained office staff due to high turnover, which ends up translating to lack of support for officers. Office staff play hot potato with responsibility because so few know what's going on. The only upside is plenty of OT, which is merely a symptom of it being a poorly run company.
Vorteile
OT always available
Nachteile
No benefits, meager wage, have to deal with incompetent office staff

like watching paint peeling. Just sit or stand for hours with almost nothing to do, especially the places were you just stand there and enforce masks. They hire anyone with a pulse that can get a guard card. Cause you know what this is a job to no where. If you love doing nothing all day this is for you. If you work down town pay your own parking yeah you get to work your first hour for free so you can pay for parking. Get a break..... no way. Wear your depends. Eat at your chair no real lunch breaks. They just need warm bodies to fill a post. Got college..who cares, watch the paint peel. What a joke, get a real job, this is a joke not a job. For this you went to college.

you get to do nothing all day

As for the interaction between site supervisors and guards, Its OK. They usually work a shift same as you do. As for upper management in office, oh heck no. They care little for the guard that has to put up with clients the are borderline or outright racist. The will do everything the can to appease the client at the expense of experienced and will guards. They will lie to your face and expect you to smile and nod. When it comes to advancement in the company, if you haven't scratched the back of nearly the entire office staff you can kiss any decent site goodbye. As for pay and requirements per site, you are expected to make the client happy, even if it means doing tasks that are outside the scope and function as security and SOP of the site. You are expected do these tasks as "Best assisting the overall contribution to the client workplace."
Vorteile
Decent pay, lower management is ok, most sites simple enough
Nachteile
Almost nonexistent advancement in company, stagnant pay despite industry advancement, favortism in upper management
