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.

Management must try to be transperant,talk with us like why can't we have leaves,the other thing is I don't feel like we have a bonus here,transport is also for others not for everyone, that thing is demoralizing. If the company can't provide transportation, why can't they give us transport money.

i am working as senior site supervisor and i really enjoy my job. i learn how to deal with the stock every how do we count the stock on our site. our management are good to us as they encourage us to study and they give the proper training for the job. the culture is to deliver in the best interest of the company the hardest part is to deal with those who do the scam that end up loosing the stock. To do the investigation if there is some that not right to our workplace.

I worked for ten years between 2003 and 2013. I was taken by one of their client and they gladly wished me good luck. The company consists of regional offices and a head office. Should you be treated unfairly by the regional offices you are able to reach the head office and put your case. So everybody is treated fairly and you arare

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 .

I work in the national control center for g4s a shift consists of 12 hours ,I work with clients and g4s employees on a daily bases (day shift and night shifts ) . My daily task consist of many skills but with company policy it is convectional to the extents . I have learnt customer service , telephonic ethics, working under intense pressure , computer skills , , switch board skills, cctv skills , managing skills , logging technical calls , incident reports . Our management is on the ball at all times motivating , inspiring respectful to the staff as well as keeping the company standards. Our workplace culture is impeccable working 12 hours a shift for 6 days we are very supportive, respectful, committed ,violent ,involved ,work with pride , very clean environment and the most important part is working in a team as sometimes we have to take risks for the safety of others . The hardest part of my job would be working under presser .. The most enjoyable part of my job is my new family and having challengers

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 learned a lot from this company regarding the security services, I was send sent to many training courses and development courses. It was fun working there when I come out of their security training course that was run like a army base at the East Rand. The management was very strict but fare to all of the guards. I still follow their management style and I have achieve a lot through it
Pros
