I worked here doing security in 2009. Was doing stewarding for football games. You got 25 quid for a shift and expected to do everything a licensed security guard had to do. Also was not permanent

Overall a good company to work for with a relaxed culture and a fair rate of pay. Generous holidays and overtime available on many occasions at double time.

Working as an employee, as of date, is still a learning curve for me. A massive company with various contract depend on your employment. This review is based only on my own experience, nearly seven years of joining the business. Still a learning curve. 50/50
Pros
Salary
Cons
Not sure

Generally ok but can be quite pressurised at times. Uniform provided, holiday pretty good. Long hours so not great for family life sometimes. Part time works well and the job is enjoyable.

Worst company to work for. The only priorty they have is profits amd what they can get out of employees. They cut so many corners, often putting staff and patients at risk.
Pros
take you vehicle home
Cons
long hours, low pay, draining

Long boring hours, can't leave site until end of shift, i.e. no going out for lunch, can have shortened lunch break if trouble starts in any part of the buildings.

Big no, managers hiding,not supporting you. violent prisoners have much more rights then yourself....no work life balance at all. As long as prisoners are there, you cant leave.10/12 hours shifts on daily basis, flat rate, on 25 hours contract. 21 days holidays (4 weeks) when people spit on you threaten your family and life, non paid sick, etc...

The hours are sociable and the office i work at is close to home which makes it convenient. G4S is a big company and has plenty of work, and overtime is subjective on certain contracts.

G4S event the salary isn't great especially working in London.
You would of thought the money would be higher.

Middle management, supervisors are not very well trained.

All in all I'm not that happy work loads with G4S.

One of the best security companies I work for, been working with them for 2 years now . I Love my job, work is flexible and i can choose when I want to work and choose shifts and there are plenty of shifts on going all year round which keeps me busy and pay rate is excellent. Holiday pay is a bonus. Overall I would recommend this company to family and friends... I have referred friends and they have started working for the company to.
