Productive work place.
Upscale Security Officer (Former Employee), Memphis, TNJune 11, 2014
A typical day at work would be coming in signing in on computer and phone. Relieving previous officer, setting CCTV channels as needed, answering phone lines to unlock gates (allowing employees entrance), searching employees as they leave the facility, giving the upcoming officer a pass down, enforcing clients rules and regulations, training other officers, – more... just to name a few things that would happen within a normal day at work. – less

Security Officer, Post (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 10, 2014
Pros: they gives you uniforfms depending conserned area
Cons: they moved you to cover a lot of different places, never stay to long in same workplace
Good place to work if it's a full time job, if it's part time is always in different places or companies, 3 shifts schedule, good benefits but not a good scheduling organization. different management depending who is your daily supervisor even if it's the same workplace.

Of course, every work place has it's faults and this company is no different, however, this is not a forever career. Anyone wishing to advance in this career should not have any hope of doing so.

Pros: room for advancement.

Wonderful company to work for. Employees are always willing to assist when necessary. Lots of teamwork, and sometimes very long hours, but working for this company is worth its weight in gold.

Custom Protection Officer (flex) (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAMay 28, 2014
Cons: bad hrs, no time at home
I enjoy the people I work with, but whenever we need something like uniforms, or shoes, even after we fill out all the required paperwork, we still don't receive them for at least 4 months.

Great Company
Security Officer (Current Employee), Tulsa, OKMay 25, 2014
I personally enjoy working for G4S. It's a great company to be in, they're international and all over the country so if you need to be moved or are moving you could potientially have a job with them waiting for you when you get there so you wouldn't have to go on the hunt again. The pay varies per position and location that they put you in. The people – more... who work for my office in Tulsa are great. Very helpful people who really pays attention to what you have to say and what is going on so if you have a problem they will identify it and help out as much as possible. – less

Not a good place to work.
Security Officer (Current Employee), Dallas, TexasMay 22, 2014
This company has poor benefits and does not recognize a hard worker. I've been here for over a year and they don't give pay raises so your stuck making the same pay. Their benefits are awful the management is unorganized.

Stable, well paying job
Security Officer (Former Employee), Arden, NCMay 16, 2014
Pros: independent work environment
Cons: long hours
When you go to work you clock in or call your supervisor to let them know you arrived at the job site. You may not work at the same site every day. I learned to write reports and to perform surveillance. My Supervisors were informative and easy to work for. You work alone mostly, however, when you relieve another officer from duty they give you a report – more... of what happened while they were on shift. My fellow officers were timely and performed their job well. The hardest part of the job is that you sometimes have to travel up to or more than an hour away from your home. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning about how to control escalating situations. – less

Another big company with small minds
Custom Protection Officer (Former Employee), Lakeland, FLMay 7, 2014
Pros: above average pay, insurance not great but okay. most coworkers are decent people except those on the "inside".
Cons: contracts come and go, at the mercy of over zelaous clients, pay scale not commensurate for some jobs, people who are managements pets get transfered even if they f'up really bad, others get the boot.
It was great at first getting settled into a job that was above average pay and the work was proactive and you did your own thing. The usual mirco-brained managers and a few over zealous road captains now and then tried to gum up the works but other wise it was not only productive it was FUN. However this company has POOR client relations and looks – more... at you as a number. When people loose positions due to client changes they put you in stand-by mode or run you around to different places. Ether way they hope you will quit but unless its a serious offense they will not let you go and just let you hang in limbo waiting to be called back to work. This company has more guards than it does jobs. They most certainly play favorites to those that kiss the companies assets or it's a client who has someone they want "inside" the company to control what goes on BEHIND the scenes. A quote from one of those so called inside people who gave a speech once. "When you fall down from making a mistake we will help you and pick you up and dust you off and get things right again!" Right, more like help you find the door or put you in a state of nothingness hoping you will go away. Shame on you. – less
