I just got a job as a security guard. Amazed I passed the saliva test, but that's besides the point.

What do I have to look forward to? What should I look out for? I might be at a construction site or it might be a regular building they haven't clearedthat up with me yet.

Apparently the pay is by the security company's client? What kinda pay should I expect?

They said that they don't drug test after you're hired but the clients might. Do you think they will? I can go without trees for a min. but jeez,I'd rather not.

I'm a svelt dude, 5'10 160. If i really did see something go down i'd probably follow my post orders call the cops and go somewhere else. I'mnot solving any mysteries or catchin any bad guys.

Yea they had this little contraption with a dense cotton swab type apparatus at the end. You hold it in your mouth for five mins no M16 then you let it sitfor 10 mins. Then these lines pop up. If a line doesn't pop up next to the drug name then you tested positive. I took two in a row because i threw thefirst one out of fear. The second one was iffy but i was getting my black Michael Cera on so older receptionis lady was like "I know you don't donone of that. This is good enough."

how much you gettin paid?

on my app i said i wanted 13 and my supervisor smirked. she said to expect around 10, but the places themselves set the rates. it doesn't seem like thehardest work though and most people i know are only making like 8 an hour, which is real sad when you're 21.

I did security for a company on 5th ave. here in NYC. the pay was ten bucks an hr. the job was boring standing up for 8hrs on post.

The job could be easy or it can be a huge pain in the !#! depending on your shift and supervisor. graveyard shift is always easiest. I did 7-3 terrible shiftand supervisor was always on my !#!, couldn't even take a seat in the garage.


I left that company and have an interview for a company that does security at JFK. i've heard it's better but again the graveyard shift. which Ican't do. they pay $9.50. I'd say expect any were between 8-10 bucks an hr.
