How on earth do these muppets keep getting these multi million pound contracts ?

If you pay peanuts G4S....you get monkeys..........and your firms full of them.
I visit a lot of power stations in the north of England, and most security booths are staffed by these G4S fools.
Now it may be me, but i would think a decent command of the English language would be mandatory for the people protecting the countrys power infastructure..........NOT SO FOR G4S !

I applied for a job with G4S at a local airport about 6-7 years ago. When I went for the interview and found out just what the rate of pay was I said 'No thank you' at the interview.

I can't remember the exact sum per security person G4S were charging the London Olympics for the duration, but it was well in the 20k bracket. You can bet your bottom dollar those guys were paid not far off basic for their time so I dread to think what G4S were making from that very lucrative contract.
