    I worked at G4S Secure Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Might get a decent post that's close to home and works with your schedule (if you're lucky). I was fortunate enough to work Monday - Friday dayshift with weekends and holidays off (client was closed holidays and didn't require coverage).

    Field management, while being constantly short-staffed and lacking sufficient quality guards, were generally fair. A few had a tendency to micromanage and didn't care if you had other guards that would be late or no-show.

    Cons

    They will not pay you out properly when you leave G4S; took them 15 days to pay me out. At least as CA labor law is concerned, if you give at least 72 hours notice they have to pay you out (pay, PTO buyout) on the day you leave. At-will employment works both ways.

    No advancement unless you're former military or retire LEO.

    Advice to Management

    NOTE TO CURRENT G4S EMPLOYEES THAT ARE SOON TO BE FORMER G4S EMPLOYEES: put in for a PTO buyout a couple weeks or so before your last day. It'll probably tip your hand that you've found (or looking) for another job but upper management doesn't really seem to care anyway.

    Taking G4S to the Labor Board and looking at a possible $1800 settlement...wish me luck!
