day at this job
security officer (Current Employee), Wentzville, MOJuly 19, 2014
Cons: favoritism, drama among co-workers, and boring
I get to work re-leave the person that is at my post. I have door times to watch employees go in and out for lunch/break. I check bags of employees that come in and out to make sure they are not taking parts or any other objects out of the plant without proper paperwork. We respond to medicals/fires where employees need our help.

Event Staff/Safety Steward (Current Employee), Edinburgh, SCTJuly 10, 2014
Constantly speaking with the public and assisting in providing important information to them at a variety of events from football to festivals.
It is great to see all the live events, however you have to deal with people being rude and offensive because they can't do/get what they want.

I personally loved working for G4S.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Tuscola, ILJuly 8, 2014
Pros: hours, every other weekend off, quiet.
Cons: sometimes dealing with truckers at 0300 is unpleasant.
As a night worker, I stayed at a chemical plant for 12 hours of the day.
I would go around making 'rounds.' There were certain places I had to go through to deter anyone from trying to break in or cause a ruckus in the area.
I would keep track of all traffic in and out of the gates.
My boss, Holly, was fantastic to work with. She always had the schedule – more... out promptly, and would help other security officers (who placed in a request early enough) switch schedules around to compensate them. She was always smiling and a great pleasure to work with.
My co-workers were all very professional, and all had great attitudes. Sometimes it can take me a while to pick up something(I learn through practice, practice, practice!) and they would always help me until I understood common procedures. They were a joy to work with.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with loneliness at night, as I worked by myself.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. I loved working with my co-workers, and meeting plant workers as well. – less

NOT FRIENDLY OR FUN AT ALL
Gm Lobby Security Receptionist (Current Employee), Warren, MIJuly 7, 2014
When i applied for the security position I was warned about the rules and how the job has mandatory hold overs. At that time I had a 2 year old little girl and any job would have to do for then. Starting off the job duties was easy and worth the pay rate. After years of working security I've notice changes in management and co workers. I felt like I – more... was in high school again. I would not recommend this job to anyone over 21 years old. You can not live off of the pay rate and this job has no benefits. – less

DIRECTOR/REGIONAL MANAGER/BRANCH MANAGER (Former Employee), ChittagongJuly 4, 2014
I joined the company as Branch Manager but rose to Director of the company. It was very demanding and a challenging job as new challenges were being faced every day. The deteroating law and order situation made the job even more demanding.

Very very poor company
cco (Former Employee), ScotlandJune 26, 2014
Worked with G4 just over a year now. Management get over their own head and have their favourite staff..
If you can't make a shift that's optional they take more shifts off you. .
All politics in g4s
The wage for this job is terrible 30p over min wage, for this type of job that's pathetic for the amount they charge clients.
Not allowed to leave site – more... even to put money In the parking metre, without phoning a manager.
If you have a death in the family you will get 3 days off and that's it!
Stick to benefits rather than working for them. – less
