G4S will take almost anyone, you would also have to commit murder to get fired. (maybe) That being said the pay is meh depending on your site. Use this as a stepping stone if you want to get with a security company.
you got a job
They make you feel like you are only a $ sign Will not help you or give you the right information to do a job.. they will not help you are not the right color, they do not want you to move up and will break the law to make more money on you will transfer you without your consent!! Over all I would not work here,
Like many entry level security companies, your success and enjoyment is heavily dependant on the contract you work on and the management you work under. In my experience, the Atlanta branch has been making a very strong effort to vet and empower leadership, and in the time I have worked for them I have seen many positive changes.
Many Different Positions Avaliable
Beholden to Contracts
Everyday I feel so excited,fortunate and honored to server and protect a long side some of the most amazing men and women who has became like family to me. I couldn't had chosen a more rewarding work assignment.
fitness center, peaceful and challenging and rewarding all at the same time.

● OverallSo, right out of the gate i do not recommend working for this company, they are shady, they lie, steal from their employees, they pick the client over their employees 100% of the time. When i was in the site supervisor position i was given little to no training and was basically told hey figure it out. The reason i quit is because the client told them i busted a water pipe(by sitting in a chair) and management took his side. This company doesn't care about you this company will lie and steal from you. If you want security experience there is worse companies out there but this is not a company that would be a good career. Get your experience and get out.
The overall culture is abusive and uses intimidation to maintain contractual obligations. The El Paso District managers have been known to be deceptive with supervisors and are the leading cause of high change over in security personnel. Furthermore supervisors do not get fairly compensated for the work they perform. I have numerous examples of their unfair practices as well as their willingness to turn a blind eye in the pursuit of profits. I am willing to discuss this with anyone who wants to inquire.
Hostile work environment due to management
Typical day involves guarding whatever your contract requires. However, they won't give you the tools to do that job. There is no guarantee that you will be relieved on time. The shifts that they run are not conducive to individuals health. The pay doesn't equate the job requirements and the health benefits are too expensive to afford. They do not look at job experience or work experience when choosing their managers, but rather rely on individuals that tell them what they want to hear. If you're liked, you get ahead. If you're not liked, you'll be punished and worked to the point where you want to quit rather than be fired. The company is about filling cogs in the clock, not about whether the clock actually runs or not. G4S mismanaged the contract so badly, the client will never work with them again.
They provide your work attire
expenses, no flexibility, favoritism, discrimination
I personally don't care much for security work and this company didn't help that opinion much. Lots of unprofessional people working for the company, but I guess thats to be expected in big security companies that just need bodies to fill slots.
My overall experience with G4S was enjoyable. I liked the Management and they tried their best to work with me during tough situations. I loved my co-workers and always got along with all of them, even when they werent working to their fullest potential. I loved the overal atmosphere that G4S gave off and would glady work for them again. The only criticism is variety of job locations near me.
Company don't do nearly enough for the employees, makes it hard to take vacation even you have the time. If you go to another site within the company your time starts over for vacation, can't carry over.
always hiring but big turnover rate
As private security companies go, G4S is a well structured company. Most managers in my experience are decent and qualified for their position. The company likes to promote from the inside, so managers tend to know what they are talking about. The work culture is very inclusive and will take issues brought by employees seriously when the proper channels are followed. The major con for G4S is the fact the company seems to always be experiencing shortage of staff. Most employees view this as a plus, because it means overtime hours are always available. However, some employee who can not stay to cover shifts may find it imposing and interfering with their lives outside work.
Not much in the way of promotions past Captain. Meet a lot of people who were good and knew their job and did it well as professionals should. Some others may not meet that expectation. You might end up pulling a double or triple if there is no one to come relieve you at a site.
Most of the people are good
long hours for little pay, You may not get off work on time
I was twice recognized by the company. Monetarily. It was a great feeling. But they were awful to employees they didn’t care about. At first I was one of the ones they liked. They worked with me. Until they hired someone new to take my place after telling me I shouldn’t apply for a promotion despite all my “achievements and hard work and loyalty”. They showed homophobic behavior and favoritism based on their clients bad behaviors and prejudices.
They will fire anyone who tells them they are wrong
It’s a job. Don’t expect much and you won’t be disappointed. Also, don’t expect fairness and you won’t be disappointed. If you are white male under 30, you’ll have a better chance at succeeding.
If you’re not white male under 30, you’re screwed!
This company is a fraud and racist. I would never refer anyone to work for this company especially in the state of Ohio. This company does not follow protocol and allows violent people to work for them. They allow there officers to make false accusations against people in higher positions.
Leadership is absolute trash, they show favoritism to those they like, and does anything they can to ruin good officers. they OVERPROMISE and UNDER-DELIVER. If you are an exceptional security professional, I highly advise against this company in the Chicago area
Raises are few and FAR between. If your site is shorthanded be prepared for all the OT you can handle, which is a double edged sword because the OT is about the only way to survive with this company. No real work/life balance. No PTO or sick leave. They don't care if you work 6 or 7 days a week as long as the shifts are covered and there are no open posts but at the same time complain about OT. Be prepared should the client not like you or want you gone, because, if they do there will be no one to back you up. All they have to say is get him/her out of here and it's done. More concerned about having to pay OT than their employees well-being
Usually plenty of hours
No time for family, no one backing you up, no real time off without financial penalty
