    I have been working at G4S Secure Solutions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at G4S are just fantastic - polite, accommodating ~ these folks actually ASK if you would like a post - they don't shove it down your throat - they treat you with respect and do not skimp on benefits - training is A+ - just the whole nine yards more than you could ask for if you want to work in the security industry. I've worked for the "other."

    Cons

    None ~ I just can't think of any

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

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

    Pros

    It gave me an opportunity to work with the public in an armed capacity which would help in the future when applying for a law enforcement position. It allowed me to have a close business relationship with the local police and fire rescue. There were plenty of opportunities to work overtime if I wanted. I was able to secure a post in a high profile residential community that really appreciated all that we did for them (Main gate, marine patrol, marina gate, radio dispatched vehicle patrol, HOA assistance with policy compliance)

    Cons

    Takes a little time getting used to odd hour posts some times. e.g. 3:00am -11:00am shift at Publix for deliveries.

    Advice to Management

    Continue placing quality people in the Road Captain's position.

    I have been working at G4S Secure Solutions part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I made my biggest and best learning strides and advancements when I was in Hawaii, where I originally started with Wackenhut/G4S. Good training, Class Room and on-line education. 99% of the people are helpful, considerate, and great team players. I love my job of service and that means reporting for a good experience.

    Cons

    Don't put so much on a supervisors plate that everyone gets discouraged when they need helpful . . . . .Help and there really, is not a helpful supervisor available.

    Advice to Management

    Listen! do you really care? Follow through, get back to the person asking for advice, with some positive input and helpful resolve.

    I have been working at G4S Secure Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    G4S offers opportunities to those people seeking to be a part of an organization who was founded based on principles of professionalism with integrity, Employee advancement opportunities with this organization are unparalleled for qualified people and the success stories if told of people who have advanced to the highest levels of the corporation that began their careers as uniformed security officers is astounding. I would encourage any former Military or Law Enforcement or Seasoned Security Officers or Sales professionals to take a look at G4S and see what they have to offer.

    Cons

    G4S is not for everyone as the company is committed to seeking out the best people

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and never lower your standards to compete on price
