pretty chill job
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON30 January 2019
not too bad of a day just wishing you could be living life outside rather been stuck at a particular place. team work is key. management can only do as much as they can but its never fair to everyone. good people just be careful of snakes. dealing with customers can be challenging at times.
Pros
good team makes great shift
Cons
working in inappropriate weather

Poor management
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON9 January 2019
Loved working in a hospital setting, I felt important to staff, and patients. My job meant something. Management at G4S was poor, the client service manager for G4S at the hospital was never around and incinerated with guards once a week if that. I was also fired for whatever reason they're not telling me three months and a week into my posting. This is just another company that values profit over its employees.
Pros
Free training
Cons
Long shifts and bad management

Worst
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 January 2019
The management themselves dont know the task and duties and they themselves are not aware of what kind of duties need to be performed on some sites. If you get injured no help or support from the company while you are on work. Staff memebers are rude and lack customer service. Scheduling department never picks the phone and if they do so they will not have the shifts. No advancement or future scope unless or until you are friend of the management or someone who is close to you inside the management.

It was okay
Security Site Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 December 2018
Everything else was okay except the Management. There were some flaws in their approach towards their employees.From 2008 to 2013 the company was flourishing. As soon as their management level was flawed, it looked really weak.
Pros
They do give you hours
Cons
Bad management

It paid the bills
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Niagara, ON1 December 2018
That's about it. This is forcing me to write a review. I mean, I sat in my car and made mediocre money doing very little. It was not challenging, but got the bills paid.

Co-workers get you through
Security Guard (Full Time) (Former Employee) –  London, ON12 November 2018
Management has no regard for labor laws or employee compassion. Ask for a day off months in advance and they always say no, force you to use vacation days.
Always asking for proof of days off called in (bereavement, sick, emergency, personal)
Company is a joke. Management talks behind your back. Union does nothing for you, absolutely nothing.
Co-workers were the only reason I kept going to work.
Ask for new uniforms, they take 7 months to get you any.
Terrible company. Promise raises, never happened.
G4S wonders why they can't hire or keep employees, maybe you should realize how terrible you treat people.
Pros
co-workers
Cons
everything, mainly management
