Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at G4S full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A nice place to work depends on site and assignment. Meet some amazing people that make up your team. There is a relaxed approach to work and alot of the time just consists of keeping an eye on an office building

Cons

When you start you will get the whole hoo haa of amazing support training and opportunities to move up in the company. these are basically so rare you are more likely to find a dinosaur in your garden. You have to push your manager to give you training courses, and the 24/7 call out expectation is rubbish

Advice to Management

keep on top of your workers, you have so many that have huge potential that is just drained away because of lack of training and opportunities to move up

    I have been working at G4S as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easily accepted without an interview!

    Cons

    This is for security guards :
    1- pay you minimum wage in most locations
    2- prmise you that you will have a permanent side easily , but you will work as a floater for a very long long time!
    3- NO PAID HOLIDAYS FOR FLOATERS
    4- NO PAID SICK LEAVE
    5- NO PROTECTIVE BULLET PROOF VEST (BODY ARMOR ) or safety shoes
    6- you will pay for your uniform !!plus their jacket will not let you feel warm enough in Toronto winter
    7- no duty belt , or gloves , nor anything!
    8- No respect for human rightts or working hours ( they will ask you to sign a waiver that allow them to let you work more than regular working hours, so you can not protect yourself or sue them !)
    sometimes they ask you to work for 18 hrs / day , sometimes for only 4 hours , somedays you will not work at all !
    9- Although they changed the term ( on call ) to a ( floater ) and you do not have regular hours, they will not allow you to have an annual leave even if your sister is dying and you ask to go and help her.

    Their business is growing quickly cause they offer very cheap prices for corporations to take contracts from other companies, but security guards pay for that price

    Advice to Management

    Have some mercy on security guards they are human beings
