I have been working at G4S Secure Solutions North America full-time (more than an year)Pros
The pay is good and there is opportunity for lots of overtime. There are opportunities for special posts. You get two weeks vacation after one year. Good healthcare benefits are available, though the medical insurance is a bit steep. Most of the clients are great.Cons
1.There are infrequent payroll shortages and it takes them FOREVER to reimburse.
2. Even if on a regular post, sometimes without notice they will cut your from six days to four and a half days.
3. Firearms are old and out of date and it takes forever to get one, even on an armed post (but at least they do pay armed money while you wait).Advice to ManagementAdvice
You have some good employees who really want to work. It doesn't go over well when you cut hours without prior notice especially when they are the sole provider.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
