Poorly ran management
Security Officer (Current Employee), St. AlbansMarch 29, 2015
Management sets an atmosphere of ignorance and disbelief. Night shift workers never see office personnel unless it benefits them.

Productive workday
Security Officer, Supervisor (Current Employee), Westchester, ILMarch 28, 2015
I learned how to multi task and to deal with different personalities on a professional level.
My co-workers, in general were easy to work with to maintain a professional atmosphere.
A typical day at the job was to come in, handle different alarm codes, work with the client professionally. I would observe and report any wrong doings while I verified different store loads on trucks.
The most enjoyable aspect of the job was the multi-tasking and working with other people.

Lack of communication
Security Guard (Former Employee), Shoals, INMarch 22, 2015
Company offered benefits are okay.
Company communication within organization is to be desired.
No real prospects for advancement within.
On site job training (in certain locations) is something to be desired.

It's a job.....
Uniformed Security Officer (Current Employee), TuscaloosaMarch 20, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: micro-managed, narsictic old farts, chaos at times, favortism to certain employees
Took this job because I had previous experience at this hospital and I needed a job while going back to school at Alabama. It has become micro-managed since new software and systems have been implemented. You have to deal with a bunch of old geezers that take their job TOO seriously, I mean come on, you are not working for Black Water. Uniformed Security Offices can not have any type of weapon, we are not supposed to help any patients with physical contact without the consent of a nurse, whom are often to busy. There is NO room for advancement unless you have former military experience and the pay sucks at $9.20. The night shift can get crazy since this is a college town, there are about 3-4 shooting victims a week and the whole family usually shows up causing the triage area to get hectic. The benefits are really good and is the only reason I have stayed. As soon as I can find a better job I am out of there!

dont get the insurance
Lead Security/Safety Officer (Current Employee), Zeeland, MIMarch 18, 2015
Pros: you get a paycheck...most of the time.
I love the assignment, I love everything about it. g4s however leaves everything to be desired. I was promised 90 day bonus and never saw it. My doctor said the insurance is the worst she has ever seen, please don't waste your money. I felt like I was cloak and daggered into this job and suddenly I am left standing here having no idea how to do my job (ZERO training before dumping me on the client) You need to check your pay EVERY hour and know that you are probably not getting it all. Figure taxes out because I think that's where I got the most "accidental errors". FAMILY INSUARNCE IS OVER 530.00 A MONTH. Management isn't worth a darn, if you have questions about pay or anything to with the job, you are better off googling it. I know times are hard and a job is a job, but don't expect anything. You are a number. don't get the insurance is my last repeated advice.

Good for first time job.Not for careers
Receptionist (Current Employee), Fremont, CAMarch 14, 2015
Management and environment could be a lot better. They do not compensate employees well. They are very unorganized and you will find yourself being under unnecessary stress. They need to update protocol.

A typical day at work can be stressful because you have people willing to cooperate and others don't. Im still learning and don't expect to stop learning. Management is okay just wish more money per hour was offered.

Like the hours but the job is boring.
Security Guard (Current Employee), Stillwater East Boulder Mine 30 mi so Big Timber.February 28, 2015
Pros: free ride to work on buses (40 miles one way)
Cons: boredom with a low activity job.
I like the hours I work, i.e., 3 12 hour shifts per week. The job is sometimes very boring. Co-workers are great manegement not so much. I liked the small business atmosphere of Guardian compare to the large corporation of G4S.
