High pressure work environment, no work life balance - you are expected to go over and beyond at all times

Toxic work environment where people don't take accountability, constantly expected to work over and above working hours with no financial compensation (only operations employees at branches get paid overtime) and not even a thank you, only get support when you serve notice to leave. Wouldn't recommend working here unless you have no other option.

Pros

Coffee stations, pension and medical aid contributions by employer

Cons

Longs hours Annual bonuses and increments not guaranteed

(G4S Cash Sollutions) Fast moving and client orientated company collecting and delivering client money. activities,

Co-workers are not only "co-workers", you have to operate as a unit, due to the fact that the lifes of employees is in your hands and depend on your action and soberness. One have to be highly self-disciplinned to work at G4S, you have to be honest and take life seriously, due to the fact that one is always a target of criminals and criminal activities.The working place and daily functions, runs like a well oiled machine; everyone knows what is required and expected from them.You should be a person with strong values and caracteristics, not easily be influanced, stand strong in what you believe and then you will enjoy what you are doing. Management is strict but fair.

Pros

Medical Aid, Provident and Pension Fund.

Cons

Long hours and dangerous working conditions if you do not follow procedures.

Pros

No
