Working is not a problem, i work good no lot of pressure and i learn lot of things, the problem as a security is to work long hours but you pay little money as all security and their companies rate per hour is too small

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
Pros
Salary on time
Cons
Lack of good communication with staff on sites

I have had to visit various sites to perform security. The hours were irregular and night shift and became used to it.. It was also considered risky but with the appropriate experience and knowledge gained I performed well in my position.

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.
Pros
Non
