Pros: The Clients
Cons: Everything I mentioned.
As an On-Site Supervisor you have kind of the best hrs, but your pay is bad! If you work over 40hrs in a week, you do not get 1 1/2 your pay, you get the pay that your employees get. Which is considerably lower than you would at a normal job.
If you get sick, G4S is more worried about whether there is coverage for your shift, than how you are doing. It's truly about the clients and not their employees.
There are no sick days period. You only get vacation of 5 day AFTER a year at the job that pays you the same hourly rate with NO pay raises. There are no promotions if you are at a site that has only 4 people...You are it!!
Where I work, on my shift, there are no breaks. Bathroom is a football field away. No lunch breaks(part of the no breaks) and standing on your feet 8+ hrs a day. I must walk close to 2 miles a day just checking out the trailers leaving the facility. You are out in the elements everyday.
Upper Management does not stand up for you. All my guys do not like this person. He does not listen when you are talking, he already has in his head what he wants to say, whether it pertains to the subject or not!
