As with any company, you have to start at the bottom. This can be frustrating for some, but others it gives the opportunity to highlight your strengths and excel through the ranks. This company is one of few that provides full-time, entry level positions. While many other companies only offer part-time or "on call" jobs, Gavin de Becker has hundreds of opportunities to get your foot in the door.
If you get into this line of work thinking that you'll be traveling the world on a private jet 30 days after starting work, you have some more research to do. The reality is that you'll be starting on an overnight shift, learning everything you can about the company and the protectee. With time, experience and opportunities you'll do more, but it won't happen overnight. Many come and go from this organization due to their own internal struggle with this.
You have to put a lot into this career, with this company or others. There are many sacrifices that have to be made, but I do think that Gavin de Becker does a good job of taking care if it's associates and rewarding those who show commitment.
Excellent entry level opportunities, All full time positions, nothing part time, strong benefits program, opportunities for growth/sucess.
Long shift days, have to work shift rotations (days/nights), must create opportunies for yourself.
