    I just got a call from G4S saying they havent got my bank statement a month after my interview -_- I had it on the day aswell

    So bloody disorganised, I have to go in tomorrow to give it to them. Then its going to take a extra 2-12 weeks from when I give it.

    I don't think I'll have enough time to do training
    ohh thats sad -_- yeah not very organised..hand it in asap get the training over a done with init, follow them ..havent you done any training yet ?

    Just a quick update, still to meet with G4S rep, scheduled this week, from info I have so far you should all know the roles you will be doing before you get to the venue.

    I am still unsure how and when you will be assigned venues, but you will at some stage get Venue specific training, or should do at least.

    Your accreditation at the UDAC should give you a clue.

    All roles will be Security in one form or another and most customer facing, though there is jobs for Admin-y type bods at some venues.

    Sorry if Ive repeated anything you knew already but will strive to find more asap

    To be honest no one real knows whats going on. I had my interview back in december, i done all the training days there ask for. But i still have no idea what am going to be doing and when.
    Hey! I got an email about training today, and I was just wondering...what do you wear for training? Is it like formal or casual?

    They ask for smart casual dress code in their email, but to be honest they don't really care as I've seen people go in with normal daily clothes... so up to you really.

    its 8.30£ for further training with g4s per hour and sia is £6.50 or something but we dont get the sia training money until we do the first 5 shifts because i order received my payslips regarding further training...
    Thanks for the info! Seems better than I thought, just under £500 for my 8 days training.

    Has anyone actually failed the interview?
    To be honest I think you can only fail if you fail the physical tests such as sight, smell and colour. I was told if by G4S they will fail the interview if you can't read the letters on the paper, however the question/answer don't really matter. Like I said when they asked my friend what you know about G4S he said "Nothing... erm you do security..etc" bloody genius still passed.

    Hello,

    Is all training done in London even if you don't live anywhere near London?
    They asked me to do training in London when I applied/interviewed in Newcastle.

    Has anyone done the X ray training, and if so is it worth bothering with for the extra £1 an hour? I have lots of exams coming up so I'm not sure I have the time for it.

    Just finished my door supervisor course today for the week - hallelujah! :woo: No more getting up at 5am for now . I'm also starting to feel a bit more optimistic about the future, knowing that I now have possibly (if all goes well) and finally landed a decent temporary job and extra skills that will hopefully open up more doors for me in the future

    Gonna use up the rest of my 7-day travelcard by wandering round London for the next 3 days

    read this, now am having doubts that after all the training we might get turned down if it comes down to g4s picking out people as they have certain limit to how many people can be hired... :/
