If you have nothing else going, this job might keep your head above water.
Security Services (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 March 2019
If you have nothing else going, this job might keep your head above water. Sometimes the situation between civic responsibilities, board of directors, property management, site supervisor, and regional supervisor, are a minefield. But you can always float.

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.

Projects exciting job opportunities
Pre-Board Security Screening Officer at YXS (Former Employee) –  Prince George, BC11 October 2018
It was an exciting job opportunity working at the airport, interacting with the passengers and knowing what you are doing is so very important in ensuring the safety of everyone, not only in the air, but also on the ground. It could really be a great company to work for if there wasn't so much back biting going on in the work place.
Pros
good pay/ benefits
Cons
2 sets of rules for employees, depending on who you are and who you know.

SECURITY OFFICER (FULL-TIME) (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 May 2018
As a full-time employee, I am so happy to work with this company. The great think is perfect combination of multi-cultural people. Most of management team is good except some employee in some cases. However, the team not fulfill the commitment which they committed on recruitment process.
Pros
To meet multi-cultural people, and sharing knowledge & experience.
Cons
Senior employees are suffering because a group of staffs are getting more benefit than others.

The workplace culture with G4S is high morale, motivation and enthusiam
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON and Cornwall ON26 March 2018
G4S is a great company to work for, I worked at both sites, St. Lawrence College Kingston site, and St. Lawrence College Cornwall Campus. The managers are very professionals and promote a healthy work environment, as such it has been a pleasure working for this company, Approximately one year ago, G4S no longer held the contract with St. Lawrence College and it was transitioned over to another company. I will not comment on the other company as they are new to the college and are just starting to get a handle on their new contract, so presently there is allot of stress and chaos in the new company and their expectations.

You have to enjoy working with the many needs of the public carrying out your duties with a high level of customer service.
