Security Guard/ Secondary Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 May 2017
Working with the members of my platoon has helped me grow as a guard/ person. I've learnt how to efficiently perform every day tasks and developed de-escalation techniques. The best part of this job is providing support to our clients and helping to make their day safer.
great company to work for.Everyone gets along and always trying to help your workmates

Secretary/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 February 2017
I worked for G4s for about 4 years. I was an entry level security guard but I loved my site. The problem came, when I was expecting my pay raise, it never came. I was paid at entry level rate right up until I left to further my career.
Second issue is I felt there was no way to advance as a security guard in the company unless you had friends in upper management.
find a good site
long hours, very little job security, no pay raise.

G4S is the world's largest security company and as such has a wide range of operations. If you are interested in law enforcement, being a security guard gives you a good opportunity in dealing with many people and handling conflict situations.

first of all.
they waste your time. they are not helpful all the people in the office seen like they are tired of their lives or something. I'm a good guy if not great and very respectful but I could not stand anyone in that office and they are just rude and not helpful.
what a waste of my time will never ever go there again.

a typical day at work is always the same. i learned that i do not want to work in the oil industry due to the fact i wasn't able to practices my skills. the management was alright but they never really encouraged us to do better. my coworkers were all lazy. sitting in the the vehicle all night with nothing to do. being able to see wildlife.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 12 January 2017
Love everything to do with this company. I have worked for hospitals, Mayors, police, and with a lot of people. A lot of shifts when I worked. There was day shifts and night shifts. Patrols were great and the desk jobs as well. I don't have any negative words to say about the company
