As was working for G4S I never got a warning also if I have problem with the manager they solve immediately so I was happy to work for them and I wish I can join them again
G4S is the good company to work for as it accommodates all races due to their qualification and also gives better chances to those who work hard within the company as I can honestly confirm that.
Why the company went down the problem is at the management level. Security officers give the best but management don't appreciated the jobs from the officers. Can u tell us why the company still pays the officers on a 8hours and they don't let the officers sign for the 8hours rate .
During my time with G4S I found the company to be professional however the management left a lot to be desired. I had in many cases had to arrange for the site to run properly where it was the managers' responsibility. Another eg. is to my great loss my manager failed to registered my A Grade course which I did with the Company and personally paid for subsequently I am still B Graded. Since then I was informed that the Company G4S has fired the manager and has lost many sites due to his incompetency It is tragic to see a big company like this producing these results. I was very unhappy and unsettled. It affected me so to leave the company and seek other employment.Things have never been the same since
Salary on time
Lack of good communication with staff on sites
Sometimes I used to work under a lot of pressure but I afforded, sometimes work condition were unfavourable but I managed. Enjoying working with diversity groups.
I enjoyed free lunches
I was always available whenever I was needed to support somewhere
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

I'd to work in a place where I could learn something new everyday .It can be productive with benefits and lot more.Being a security is risk boring.You got undermined,disrespected by your bosses or being treated like a slave.I work outside whole night,the conditions are too bad.I stand in a concrete whole night whether its rainy or sunny.I feel like my healthy is in danger.
Long, cold and boring hours
I enjoy being at work.I've learned a lot like monitoring all types of cameras,exporting some footages and saving them,playing back the cameras etc.The management is very kind.We work as a team and help each other.I dn't experience any hard times in my work and i enjoy everyday at work.

A typical day in the office involves IR related issues as its a daily challenge due to the type of Industry. I've learned how to deal with militant individuals and bargaining skills. Management are at times available to assist when guidance is needed. Great Co-workers!! Having to dismiss employees Dealing with issues and having a successful outcome whether it be a grievance or a CCMA case.
