This is a company that you learn new skills daily. A place you can call home. I enjoyed working there and your fellow worker became like family. Super cool to be part of the team.

There is no room for advancement there were officers in same position for more than 5 years. The management doesn’t take anything into account. Just what’s in it for them.

While Working at G4S every shift there was something new happening you would never know what could happen but as long as your outgoing confident person you should have no problems with dealing with new situations, personally I enjoyed it and would love to go back in the future sadly I left due to University,
Pros
Pick your Shifts
Cons
Zero Hours

Typically understaffed with alot of your off days spent being called in to cover a shift. Over all not a bad job for people looking to get started in security but definitely not an end goal.
Pros
Plenty of hours
Cons
Understaffed with the benefits lacking

If you need a regular schedule to be able to plan things at home it seems like they don't really care about you. You are just a number they can place somewhere so that a shift is filled, no real interest in their employees. High turnover rate because of no support from the site manager.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Bad management

From the beginning the management doesn't communicate with Field Supervisors. Each post is different depending on the experience of the Post Commander. An officer can't expect things to be done in a timely manner and often has to wait for administrative changes to be made.
Pros
Since the minimum wage was increased the pay is better
Cons
Don't learn much at posts

People fight over each other to get higher power, don’t expect pay increases unless switching job sites. Mostly easy work and decent pay but people will trample over you just to try to get higher in company.
Pros
Hours
Cons
Managers

I work for a company that has great benefits but the hourly pay does not balance with the cost of living. Depending on work location you may be paying to work with the cost of gas as if this date $2.79. They do not pay for years of experience so most of what they hire is the service they get. Not good. I believe this is a position for those who are retired or for the younger generation to get their foot in the door to Law Enforcement, make money and start saving.
Pros
I get to meet new people every day.
Cons
The pay.

They will eat you up and then spit you out. The management only cares about themselves and their bonus' If they can throw you under the bus, more the better with them.
Pros
None
Cons
The entire job

The pay was very nice, considering the 12 hour shift becomes about 13 and change, because of shift turnover beforehand and waiting for you relief afterwards.

Environment was terrible, no teamwork, no leadership, no mission. Management would remove you from the site based off of alligation. Would not recommend working at the ICE location in Phoenix. Management discipline is based off of selective and not progressive discipline.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Bad Management

Compensation is good if you work 60+ hours a week but you’re gone a lot and it’s nearly impossible to make plans outside of work. Most days start about 4:30 am too.

If you value your time, and want hours, avoid this company… I’ve asked for a full-time site and no overnight shifts, and in return I got offered overnights only… not very accommodating. Also if you looking for extra hours, forget it with this company… I’ve asked numerous times for extra shift or full time hours but get no response majority of the time.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Employees are over worked and under paid. G4S managment is not stable and often changing due to constant shortage of workers because of the negative environment. Stressful job no respect for their employees. Lots of mental abuse by the company.
