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.

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
