A Officer need to stay abreast with all current change within his/her Security job.
(exsample)if there is a new style of gun. Take time and go to the gun shop/range and inquire about the new gun. The more you know about your equipment, the more valuable you are to your Security job.

Pay rates are often dictated by the monetary vaule of the contract. For instance one construction contract may only require the services of an officer that can write a report and deter activity. However there are no further quailifcations needed. I tend to sell these contracts at a lower rate and only sustain a pay wage of $8.50 - $9.50 per hour. On the other hand a construction site that requires an officer to track incoming and outgoing traffic, report on materials arriving and departing the site, must have constant contact with clientele or public interaction will demand a higher contract price and thus a higher quality officer. The point here is officers that have the ability to interact with the public, have all industry certifications (Firearm, OC, Baton, First-aid, CPR, AED), are computer literate are a commodity in this industry today and can have the potential to be paid a higher price. You have to question what you bring to the table.

If you have the luck to pick a company thatgives you a test when you are first hired,it will set whether or not you will
be considered for advancement.The rest of
the time you will have to brown nose the
area manager to promote you. If he doesn't like you, or he belongs to an ethnic group that you are not in, you won't advance unless management has to meet their quota under the Civil Rights
Act. If you get a transfer to another site you will have to start all over again impressing the boss. And if you come from another company, good luck! Most companies won't give you any credit
for past work unless you already are at a
supervisory level when you apply.And the
older you are, the harder it is to advance. Some companies layoff the older
guards just when they have experience to
handle most situations without panicing
or doing something stupid as far as company rules are set (in stone).And even
if you do everything right, you can still
be laid off because of the client's change of post requirements.This used to
be a secure job but not anymore!Save your
money.

William Gordon in Lombard, Illinois said: I'm looking for a good paying security job in the western suburbs, like naperville IL, wheaton Il,or elgin Il, I have 0ver 300hrs. of law enforcement training. I'm also an auxillary police officer, are there any jobs that pay above 13.00 dollars an hour. I'm looking for an armed position.

I hate to tell you, but unarmed pays more, unless you are armored truck security such as ATM/Bank.

I suggest going to Securitas or Initial. Securitas is in Downers Grove and Initial is in Naperville, they will probably pay the most (for contract security), I currently work for Titan Security which is the trailer park of security in Illinois. Find a good company and move up in it or with your experience I suggest becoming a private investigator then opening your own security company.

Yes Carol you're right and I may add that when you see new people constantly as new hires, that should tell you that the company has an human relations problem. It can't hold the majority of it's employees. These kinds of companies are called revolving door wbc jobs. This means that employees that are hired don't stay long but leave very soon. Some reasons are is that the security companies don't pay very well and put way to much responsiblity on the newer employee exspecting them to do a great job. I tell you this industry need fast improvements.

A friend of mine just opened a Security company about a month and a half ago Phil. He just bid KellyUSA so if interested call me at (210)781-6470. We are a smaller company so we do not have the turnover rate of others. Plus we treat our people with respect and that goes along way. Our company was built by Security Officers for Security Officers. www.metrosecurityforces.com

Hi
Carol, I came across this site by just browsing the web. Its nice to know there are other people out there doing security work who are basically in the same boat as me. I have fourteen years security experience, I started with supermarket security and have worked my waqy up in terms of level of quality. I am also noticing a very bad pattern of alot of companies going the contract route, which is not good for either party involved. I have also noticed alot of foreigners doing security work in NYC where I live and it makes it even harder to find a decent paying job. Alot of companies continually fall into the misconception that they are saving money. Another problem I face is reasonable accomodation-I hurted my back a few years ago-I can still work and want to work, but I cannot stand for eight hours straight.

Unfortunately there does not seem to be a consensus, please keep in mind that "security" is the poor man's police dept. or hired punching bag, alot of contractors out there want to make money, and if it means paying their employees little or nothing, or hiring / exploiting foreigners, so be it. Contractors also seem to have a never ending laundry list of wants and never want to advise you of what they have to offer in turn. Then theres my favorite: Nepotism, favoritism, and good old fashioned under the table politics. You can have a doctorate in security work and still treated like garbage.

Security in Texas has come, and is still coming, a long way. I'll save you the thorough report, however, there is still MUCH room for improvement. Texas is by no means a pioneer State when it comes to private security. Indeed, States such as Virginia and California, pretty much lead the way with Officer authority. However, Texas is no longer "frowning" on Private Security. Many tools are in place to advance the Private Security Officer, and many more are in the works. As of today, a Private Security Officer may now carry his duty weapon with him in the course of his travels to or from his duty assignments. Furthermore, an Officer may carry his weapon with him while performing his duty. For Vehicle Patrol, this is a HUGE leap in Texas handgun laws. Furthermore, Texas is trying to pass laws to allow Private Security Officers civil immunity from lawful citizen's arrest. Also, Texas is trying to incorporate "simple" trespass as an arrestable offense under citizen's arrest statutes (most violated law confronted by a Security Officer). But more importantly is that local District Attorney's are S L O W L Y recognizing citizen's arrest as they pertain to Security Officer's authority. This evolution is a timely process and I probably won't live long enough to see it completed as I would like to, but, I will be happy with baby steps for now.
You may be asking how this pertains to this forum? Simply, the more responsibility given to a Security Officer, the more training will be required. The more training required, the more pay demanded. The more pay demanded, the better the morale. The better the morale, the less turnover. The less turnover, the fewer misaligned companies...etc. Trust me, you don't want to be a COP in this day and age. Security is definitely were it's at. We just need to stick together to beat the "system" so that we are able to get the respect, pay and careers that we deserve, serving our communities as paid professional Security Officers.

Hi Chance, It is good to hear that some states are slowly coming to their senses, however, here in NYC we are still in the dark ages. I strongly feel security should be treated like the police dept. or military-where people can actually go and get real training/ benefits / pay / etc. I have worked with other security people who have been injured some mildly some seriously and there has been little or no action done to help us- we are viewed as punching bags, and a law needs to be passed nation wide where if one attacks and or hurts a security person you will be charged with a felony, regardless. Currently there is no such law in NYC or to the best of my knowledge in NYS. But there is such a law for NYC bus drivers though and rightfully so . In other countries, I have been advised that security is on equal footing with police and military. I respectfully disagree with your theory of more responsibility leading to more training leading to more money, in an ideal world Yes, I am all for it. It has always been and always will be an employer's game- regardless of your level of training, one will be paid terribly, case in point-myself. I have 1) A considerable level of experience 2) I have different types of licenses 3) I have attended some training courses and successfully completed them 4) No criminal record 5) Worked weird hours more than normal hours-which is beneficial because I have been at jobs where you are working for the same company but there are different procedures on different tours 6) Different types of security and yet, it is still impossible to find what I am looking for. For now, I am just going to "roll with the punches" and try harder to find a real job, this is not a dignified job for a grown man to be doing. This comment was not intended to offend any of my colleagues in security, I feel alot of people in security feel this way. We want to do a good days work for a good days wage, we want to be treated with dignity and respect.

Yes, JAIME, it is also a 3rd degree felony to assault a Security Officer in Texas. This is the exact same penalty as assaulting a Police Officer.

YaaaY for Texas once again! We just recently extended our "Castle Doctrine" to our motor vehicles and (more importantly) our work place! This law does WONDERS for private security in Texas. The most sought after Law Suit by sly attorneys wanting to slam Security Officers for performing their jobs WAS, duty to retreat. Simply meaning that, a Security Officer is a private citizen (in Texas) and therefore had NO exemption for duty to retreat while protecting his client's property/patrons. These law suits have seen the last of there days, as Texas enacted the Castle Doctrine "extension" to create civil AND criminal liability so long as the action of the Security Officer was lawful (which it usually is).
Slowly but surely, earning credibility.

I would say that anyone really interested in security should do there homewrok on the company first. I've been in security since I was 18 and I've worked every kind of security there is. I've done two malls in WNY and a hospital and everything in between. I was offered jobs a "patrol supervisor" but use my own vehicle as the patrol car. Not only is the gas allowance that the companies give low but and I'm speaking from experience people feel uneasy about seeing the same car around there place of employment and not knowing who or what they are. Word to the wise if a company offers a "patrol service" make sure you get a company car.

If anyone is interested in Security (or a job for that matter) in the Dallas Fort Worth area, Craigslist.com, is a very worthy site. Just go to DFW craigslist and click on "security". There are TONS of companies ALWAYS hiring on there. Job salary range is from 7-25ish/hour. I highly recommend a company called "Heartland Security" and "Statewide Patrol". Happy hunting!!

Security company's in Illinois
Illinois security is really bad, but there are two company's i would recomend. Metro Enforcement-Merchants Police, or S.P.I. (security professionals of Illinois). These are top paying "armed" security jobs, and the "power" they have is extent. Both company's work hand in hand with local law enforcement, and both company's are contracted all over illinois. Each officer is highly trained, and has to go threw monarc police training to even quialify. Security pay is different every where, but these two company's are top paying. Forget about the 9.00 an hour crap with these guys.

I am not bragging, as I think it is crap pay in Vancouver, one of the most expensive city in North America. In Vancouver, 50 grand is poverty, and it is hard to believe that a police officer can make less than my pathetic pay since they have to carry firearm and do much more difficult work and deal with situations whereas I only have to observe and report, being a warm body.
