NOT ENOUGH HOURS AND LOUSY PAY
Security Officer (Current Employee), Ashland, KYJuly 20, 2014
I've been here for a bit and I've worked maybe 8 days within a month. Making about $105 a week. A person can not live on that in this economy.

day at this job
security officer (Current Employee), Wentzville, MOJuly 19, 2014
Cons: favoritism, drama among co-workers, and boring
I get to work re-leave the person that is at my post. I have door times to watch employees go in and out for lunch/break. I check bags of employees that come in and out to make sure they are not taking parts or any other objects out of the plant without proper paperwork. We respond to medicals/fires where employees need our help.

I personally loved working for G4S.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Tuscola, ILJuly 8, 2014
Pros: hours, every other weekend off, quiet.
Cons: sometimes dealing with truckers at 0300 is unpleasant.
As a night worker, I stayed at a chemical plant for 12 hours of the day.
I would go around making 'rounds.' There were certain places I had to go through to deter anyone from trying to break in or cause a ruckus in the area.
I would keep track of all traffic in and out of the gates.
My boss, Holly, was fantastic to work with. She always had the schedule – more... out promptly, and would help other security officers (who placed in a request early enough) switch schedules around to compensate them. She was always smiling and a great pleasure to work with.
My co-workers were all very professional, and all had great attitudes. Sometimes it can take me a while to pick up something(I learn through practice, practice, practice!) and they would always help me until I understood common procedures. They were a joy to work with.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with loneliness at night, as I worked by myself.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. I loved working with my co-workers, and meeting plant workers as well. – less

NOT FRIENDLY OR FUN AT ALL
Gm Lobby Security Receptionist (Current Employee), Warren, MIJuly 7, 2014
When i applied for the security position I was warned about the rules and how the job has mandatory hold overs. At that time I had a 2 year old little girl and any job would have to do for then. Starting off the job duties was easy and worth the pay rate. After years of working security I've notice changes in management and co workers. I felt like I – more... was in high school again. I would not recommend this job to anyone over 21 years old. You can not live off of the pay rate and this job has no benefits. – less

hi turnover rate
Security Guard (Current Employee), Lauderdale Lakes, FLJune 21, 2014
Fast paced work environment always on the go. I have learned how to be more patient with kids and get to know them a little better. management is very disrespectful and has no compassion for employees. the hardest part of the job is breaking up fights and making sure that one does not get injured in the process.the most enjoyable part is talking to – more... the youths and giving advice that might hopefully impact their lives after detention. – less

Avoid At All Costs
Security Officer (Current Employee), Belvidere, ILJune 18, 2014
Cons: everything
G4S is one of the most worst security companies to work for. Don't care about the employees or their families. No Benefits! Forced over time due to poor management skills.

broken promises, no integrity, belittle you and pay is lousy
Thaddeus Stevens College guard (Former Employee), Lancaster, PaJune 18, 2014
Cons: everything
Worked here since April 21, 2014. I was promised 40 hrs but when arrived at the college was only 32 hrs. I was told they have plenty of work and would make sure I got 40 hrs. Never happened. I carried a firearm for 26 years hold many certifications (more than the whole management team and employees put together) but was told I couldn't carry here because – more... I didn't meet the qualifications. What a joke. I am leaving today to work for a better security company with better pay and benefits where I can carry a firearm. I suggest do not waste your time working here unless you like dead end jobs with no integrity.. – less

military type of job
BPO Bank Protection officer (Former Employee), Baltimore MDJune 18, 2014
Pros: good uniforms for the job.
Cons: they don't show any care about there employees well being
great uniforms, guns need to be updated, and management need replacement. If management can't lead by example did who do we learn from. If we as security officers uniforms are clean , then our managers uniforms need to be clean too. If we as security officers are trained and fit for the job, then our managers need to be as well. Lead by example.
