One of my biggest issues with G4S is that once upon a time there were known as 1 of the greatest security companies to work for now being on the inside I'm learning that you lowered your standards and anyone can get a job there is no set skill set or plan put in place so that guards can work their way up the being and security officer. I just I define a security officer as someone with credentials in some history behind Them. There needs to be better contract negotiation the cost of living is insane in the northeast and as we just keep working and suffering get paid the same exact wages nothing's being done to elevate our way of life especially when we take care of the client it's not on the client that you have people writing contracts that can't negotiate contracts or pushed through a 1.5% increase yearly for cost of living and obviously there needs to be a cap at 7yrs. Also vacation leave as a joke a single year after being on a site for more than 3 years and providing exceptional service is just not enough especially to an individual that has a family. I believe once an individual hits 3 years they should get 3 additional PTO days.

Give raises to those loyal to company and have step plan. Pay at least 3 days sick time and give a personal day a year. Pay a part of 401k . Like 20% more will use it.

Pay people what their worth, instead of high turnover of employees leaving for better pay, instead of the INSANE amount of overtime compensating for people leaving for jobs with a chance for advancement and the cost of living.

1. Working of HR department is not good. They do not care that after
selection and background check you have got the Proper duty or not.
2. You have given much power to site
incharges and they always misuse the
Power. They never give proper hour to new joined employe.

If any employe mail for this to HR.
HR never reply any mail. Hence I
Recommended to timely check the
working of HR and site incharges.

Stop putting people into Management/leadership positions just because of their longevity. This DOES NOT qualify them as Managers. All it does is give you spineless yes men who will do whatever they can to protect their own job. Leaders who sit in their offices all day with the door shut, and only react when someone screws up bad enough to force them to do something, is NOT what you want.
