There’s no such thing as a job description With what I learned from the company is that you have to be flexible and help around in other areas even if it’s not part of your area of expertise
Pros
No pros
Cons
Less salary more work

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.

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

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've had a really good experience with the company, i mean the work environment, the working hours, management, equipment. When you are new at G4S you get someone who will take you through as to what happens in there, the full training is provided. When you are a hardworker at the company you get noticed and appreacited, hours there are not do demanding unless its during the busy time that is at the end of the month, that is the only time you get to work insane hours. One gets an hour lunch break for the day and you get to choose your day-offs. Theres room for growth there if u showing interest in a higher post you be given a chance to prove yourself.
Pros
End year functions and trips

They employ people just to retrench them 3 months later. If you are in favor of management, you will get incentives. If you don't have children, you have to work over holidays. In 5 years they had 8 CEOs. You never get recognized for good work. Never ever work for this company!!!
Pros
Lunch
Cons
Long hours
