I agree with you, since starting this thread I've been reading more into it and also remember my own training which was filled with mostly 18 year olds who have never worked before. No disrespect to young people, but if the security checks are going to be mainly done by people who weren't paying attention during training and have no experience of what a 12 shift feels like working full time... I personally don't want to be near the olympics if these are the people checking for weapons and explosives!!

The issue runs deeper than the problems you are describing. For me, the main worry is some of the people they HAVE employed. One whistleblower has stated how employees were falling asleep during training, listening to music, and then also failed to detect a variety of weapons or bombs despite having been trained at x-ray and detection.
has more information.
I came out of training feeling very uneasy and was in two minds about the whole thing. Yes I'm pissed off I failed vetting for some unknown reason and that G4S are messing up big time... But I'm starting to feel like I dodged a bullet.
