Try to find work elsewhere, if you can. This is not a good job. Only get it if you’re desperate for money. In other words, if you’re poor, your credit is horrible but you’re an attractive enough woman of any age, they will hire you. Make sure you’re good at faking not being poor by a well groomed exterior and personable demeanor and your chances are even better.

Just like all the others out there and just as bad. It’s a low-paying, low-skill survival job that is all. I’m not sure what future, when at present they’re more disorganized compared to the company that just lost the contact at my site. They don’t have it together at all. Morale and respect is low because they’re not there yet and probably never will be.

No micromanagement from anyone most of the time. You’re underpaid building sitters for the rich property holders. If you’re lucky your manager takes no interest in your post location or is too busy or incompetent to bother. You’re pretty much left on your own to run the site with your co-workers.
Make sure they’re decent people! Very few demands or issues from management if anything at all. If anything demands from management are trivial. This is not a security job first, it’s a customer service job first and the illusion of security or so I was told by a manager. Management doesn’t bother to listen/hear anything you have to say if you need it, or can’t follow through and are inconsistent at best. You use your own judgment on post on how to deal with situations as they arise. Most of the time it’s extremely boring.

It would take about thirty days to get hired for this field of work. To acquire my position working for securamerica there were a few steps and they weren't very lengthy. I had to complete a background check, go through training, and orientation.

They two weeks wait for a paycheck when you are part of the working poor. You survive from paycheck-to-paycheck. Yes SA hires poor people and profits of their earnings while withholding paychecks for 2 weeks and paying bi-monthly. Along with the wait for a paycheck, you're stressed out because the pay is low and if you're part-time you lack health insurance and benefits on top of being poor!
