My company uses G4S security, they are hit or miss. For the most part our "guards" from G4S are either college students or bored retirees. Only a
small cadre of them have stayed on for any length of time, they cycle through new guards about once every 6 weeks or so.
We used to have armed security from them Shudders
Aside from a few 5%'ers they are about as smart as the bottom of my shoe. I am an IT engineer and they FLIP OUT when I show up in the middle of the
night to come fix something. They love to act like its an invasion of the building, even though I have 24/7 building access and badged in through a
secure door. I had one of their guards sprinting into my lab at the office because I had come in at 0430 to get some stuff for an upcoming change set
I find them more funny than anything else, but I have also made sure to make friends with the few G4S guards that have stayed around for a while.
Because of that they keep an eye on my truck for me, unlike other people's vehicles. If someone else's vehicle gets broken into it's basically a
"sucks to be you, not our job", if its my truck they go above and beyond (a few months ago someone backed in to my passenger side headlight, they
ran an enitre WEEKS worth of security cam footage to find who did it).
Just remember to always make friends with Security, the cleaning staff, and Supply.
