Good people that work hard but need focus
Regional Recruiter - GTA West (Current Employee) – Toronto, Ontario – February 19, 2015
G4S has been a pleasure to work for the past 5 years. I have been granted several opportunities to be promoted from a Mobile Supervisor, to Scheduler, to Scheduling Supervisor all the way up to a Regional Recruiter.
I enjoy coming to work everyday and working with such great people. From the Executive level all the way down to the front line staff, the majority of people really are trying to do their best.
The hardest part of working for G4S is the lack of focus and direction that a large organization needs to keep the machine rolling. It feels like we are just stampeding through one challenge or another without really taking the time or making the effort to understand why we don't have better control or infrastructure to handle these situations. G4S also seems to be very reactionary to the challenges of the market, whether its technology, employee culture or competition It seems like we are always playing catch up with our competitors and the needs of the security industry.
Overall, its a good company to work for. It just seems like it really needs to knuckle down and get to the heart of what makes a good company great!
