Disgraceful company
20 plus years employed. I have witnessed and have been a victim of their worsed work related practices, to include targeting of individuals like me, isolation no recognition of constant hard work where it benifit the client. Ongoing denial of holidays every single year, only when it suits them. Constant and ongoing bullying tarnishing of your name even before other work mates have met you, they destroyou, in particular management in Limerick, I have witnessed a col a work mate harassed while on sick leave up until he died while on sick leave. Disgusting management and an even worse md in Dublin, who is on the ly

They hire from anywhere taking people with no experience and from mickey mouse companies also managers doing drugs at xmas parties in the toilets
G4S was the pinnacle in security before 09 now they are a joke from HR to managers to NCC to wages staff there so rude unprofessional and ignorant this company has fallen and is a shambles
Pros

Cons
All staff on differnt contracts so pay is unfair, your doing same job as others yet there paid more even if your better than them, they do be asking u how to do stuff

Ero company so they wont pay more than they have to no night allowance awful managers who are clueless they just use there name to get contracts
The name G4S is just a name that is well known and that is how this company get contracts if clients really knew who runs and works for this company they would run miles they employ anyone because top officers won't work for them and leave them G4S is just a stepping stone for those who need experience nobody stays long because it's a rubbish company with rubbish pay

Stressful job with low pay.
They dont pay fair, below other security companies, very stressful work with minimum pay, no job security, very easy to be sent home with minimal error.

Awful
Probably one of the worst places I have ever worked in, it's a about who you know not how good you are, very poor training and support, managers are not very nice and not approachable at all.

Great Learning Experience
G4S is a challenging but rewarding environment providing employees with significant scope to develop and progress within the organisation. Salary restrictions are one of the biggest challenges.

Terrible soul destroying place
The only way to describe this job is that's it's a very easy job made almost impossible by management as they run this place so unbelievably poorly!! Almost has to be seen to believe it! Most of the people that work along side you are great and save this job a little but over all dont expect any help or assistance from management as they just dont care and they will screw you over any they can

Avoid avoid
Absolute shambles of place to work, company have moved to a new premises, basically they have built it in a way that staff can't communicate ie socialise with each other, management are there way to long, most where previously drivers, I think there could be issues regarding there education, not saying anything about drivers getting promoted, but in this case management are definitely lacking social skills, managerial skills, there's no accountability by management, anything that goes wrong they will point finger at staff where ever they can.
Pros
Getting paid always on time

Productive and fun workplace
Work/life balance as a casual events steward is why I applied for the job. As a college student, I really only have time for a part time job. I am called in on weekends for matches and other various events that may pop up. It's a very flexible position, which suits me perfectly.

Overall, I enjoy the work we do. A typical day can consist of setting up the venue, checking tickets, escorting people to seats, providing security for guests and crowd control. I would say the the most enjoyable part of the job is also the hardest; dealing with the public. Generally people are agreeable enough and follow your instruction. You'll engage with some really lovely people, a pleasant interaction with a happy customer can make your day. However you do get a few who tend to make your job difficult. Sometimes it can be hard to maintain composure and a smile but it's important to remain professional. It's always relieving to share stories with co-workers when the work gets tough. I'm lucky enough to work with a close group of people. It makes the job a lot easier when you know your colleagues have your back.


It's a minimum wage position with room for advancement/promotion if desired. I know some people who choose to leave this particular position after a year or two and others who have worked for G4S for years and have moved up into supervisor positions with higher wages.
Pros
Flexible hours, exciting work
Cons
low pay

Some of the worst management I’ve come across yet
Promised the moon & the stars the usual . Throwing out Capital dock / corporate ambassador and the other famous one ‘we have Dublin port’ Dublin port finishes in the summer and staff left with no sites to go to . Corporate bank where their own contracts manager gets barred off the site by the client for poor management of G4S staff . G4S are not the company it was many many years a go , especially with moronic management
Pros
You might get some hours
Cons
Constantly breaking employment laws
