Boring repedative ,treated like a number.
If you want a job with no promotion prospects ,long hours/ shifts , with managers that dont care about staff as long as the shift is covered.They will take anybody with an sia badge , so the calibre of guards dont matter, and it shows in their attitude to their work., prefering to play on their phones or tablets when not checked or supervised.Yes, this is the career for you, if you cant get a real job!

Unless you are a friend or a family member of someone who already works there unfortunately you will not progress in your career or be given any opportunities to. Very clicky place to work.
Security Supervisor in Kent

Maybe premium name, not premium employers
Removing where I worked, whilst working for G4S, myself and the team I worked with had zero support, from assistant area managers upward. No query took less then three weeks to get a response. The client was allowed to alter and add, well outside of the scope of contracted obligations, leading all team members to have a serious contemplation, on both career and lifestyle. This would of cheekily added up to maybe tens of thousands for free. Client was a bully, and G4S up to the regional level we’re pretty spineless. I have left, and happily never looking back. I’ve heard some others have the opposing experience. I advise to approach with caution, if you don’t like being left in the dark fending the client off yourself.

For a temp role it was good
Was inducted well and supported throughout my first weeks. Considering it was a temp well I was treated as if I was a permanent employee which was a nice change.

Do you drink pints or top shelf stuff during the week

Shared on 26 September 2017

It's a really easy interview (for me anyway). They're desperate for more staff as turn over is very, very high due to low wage and over working staff.
