Steward (Former Employee) –  London29 December 2017
it was a fun experience seeing live events for free. Also ensuring that everybody got to and from an event in a safe way. Another aspect of this job that was refreshing was the amount of people who enjoyed the event with no hassle

Very good for University students
Steward (Former Employee) –  Douglas, Isle of Man8 September 2017
Cameraderie formed with other job workers.

G4S gives decent training to those who are interested in working for them. My job allowed me to work flexibly and meet other students which made the time worth while. The wage I received for an 18 year old was more than appreciated.
Pros
Good team members
Cons
Long Hours

Steward (Former Employee) –  Wimbledon, Greater London8 June 2017
We are given specific roles for the day and we have to stick to them naturally. We get given good shift hours and good pay rate, so it's definitely a good company to work for. The hardest part is probably the long hours, but it will be worth it. There is a decent staff area to have your breaks. Overall, the company is definitely good company to work for.

Fun To Work for
Safety Steward (Current Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester1 May 2017
You would start of by being put in a position , for the said assignment of the day , whether be it an foot ball event or working in a TV studio. Your objective is safety of Others , and to provide a exception experience for members. The managers for the Manchester base of work are great and easy to get along with, compliant to needs and great mentors. Any one looking to gain customer service skills should apply.
Pros
flexibe working hours
Cons
maybe sometimes not enough work when you need it.

Security/Steward (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands11 April 2017
Great company to work for, was able to attend many events and no two days were ever the same. Some days you had the greatest friendly patrons and others i was faced with difficult situations but was able to diffuse correctly due to the substantial training i had beforehand.

Event Steward (Current Employee) –  Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh5 April 2017
To work here full time however is impossible. Constantly made to stand on feet for hours upon end without break, being shouted at by management if you sit, even if it is not in the view of the public. There are development opportunities but they also force a mandatory college course that takes 3 months to complete (FOR A ZERO HOUR CONTRACT) that offers no pay benefits, other than the fact that they can refuse you work if you don't complete it.
Pros
can select when to work
Cons
long hours, low pay, management issues, work rights abused

Security Steward (Former Employee) –  west of Scotland3 February 2017
west of Scotland is very difficult to get enough hours of work ( without traveling 30+ miles for a 5 hour shift) but yet it seems like most events are understaffed and mismanaged, very few positions/shifts that are decent to work at, most are very demoralising
Pros
sign up to work shifts you like
Cons
working conditions and staff

very poor contact related training and help
Steward (Former Employee) –  Edinburgh, Midlothian29 January 2017
Train yourself online in your own time source work and get to your destination. transport help if you're local but get there by your own cost.

The company pay is poor with no help or costs. walk away with £21 for three and a half hours work and one hour travel so fuel and cost to take of this with own time to travel included Great way to get into work or benefit street
Pros
stay a while then move onto benefits great for new people from afar
Cons
all food and travel and time you pay fpr
