      Real. Nightshift security is literally walking around alone listening to podcasts and occasionally shooing sleepy crack heads away from the property. it's the closest job that exists to getting paid to do nothing. Dayshift security is being yelled at by a 40 year old mixed race woman for half an hour because the store manager told you to tell her that she can't park in the fire lane.

      Can confirm. Current day shift unarmed guard here, previously unarmed night shift. It’s maximum comfy and easy mode. Money is okay on my area, pays the bills. Decided to go back to school so now I can just grind out online class work on the clock all day. Not a bad set up. But yeah I do have some interesting night shift stories.
      >haunted buildings
      >copper bandits
      >desert animals that are acting a little too human
      >co worker slapping his meat and getting caught
      The usual night shift antics.

        Amazing, my first thought after seeing all the knives was this guy's a felon but that revolver seems legit. Such interesting behavior

          Honestly this wog is probably about as intimidating to other Black folk as a security guy gets. Getting stabbed is nasty and he's giving off that all-important "I am crazy enough to do it Black person" vibe. They certainly don't give a single shit about sane professionals.

    Very gay. When I started working in security in 2012 it was just boomers who didnt manage to become policemen or boomers who lost jobs in other sectors and became security guards because no one was interested in them anymore. Now, more than 10 years later, its just migrants with all the problems they bring. Its a booming industry though, you can make big bucks when self employed or rise through the ranks in larger companies based on competence.

    t. german who started working for Securitas, became a branch manager, became self employed and now makes good money subcontracting.

        For real. One time I went to an orientation for a position at securitas and I was the only white guy in the room. Walked out ten minutes in it was a bad vibe.

    Worked as a bouncer many moons ago. Was fun but not remotely worth it.

    Got laid more than I would've otherwise, conquered my social tism in a lot of ways, but the pay was trash along with the people you work with. Decent bit of risk, not just physical, but also civil and legal. Easy fun job most of the time, but not worth the risk for mouth breather wages, with next to no career prospects

    90% boring, 5% of thinking somethings going to happen and another 5% of calling the police on hobos for $17 an hour before taxes.

    I work a k9 for in house hospital security. I've been in so many fights I've lost count. I've released my dog on several people. meth is a serious issue. pcp still pops up. going hands on, taking people down, restraining them is a daily occurrence. I've had knives, guns, people try to run us over. my Healthcare system has to pass the cooper standard that weeds out people not in shape. we have normal morons that are unarmed doing b***h work but also tactical teams that are just big ass dudes paid to fight and stay in shape. our k9 teams are national police k9 certified. for the most part the tactical and k9 guy's are all squared away. there are some dip shits but overall most guys working are prior military/pd that will frick you up and are backed by a billion dollar company. we do not wear body cams, there is no cameras in many areas because of hipaa. literally no one gives a frick what we do as long as the medical staff and guests are protected. I make $2 an hour more than the city pd here being on the k9 side. the RNs and techs get turned on by this shit and you have unlimited access to ass. although these b***hes will eat your ass and let you put it in their butts they are all bat shit insane. I was an explosive detection k9 handler during gwot oifx3, this job is up there in the fun department. I've had my ribs broken fighting methd out psychs. other guy's orbitals broken, stabbed, shot, and numerous injuries that go unreported. with the police having their hands tied, slow response times, and DA's unwilling to prosecute, i think private in house security that is well compensated is the only way to keep your people safe. this is not securitas or allied universal where you sit on your ass and call the police. you are expected to go hands on, fight, and protect the people and guests at the facilities. want violent and fun shit? look at major city hospitals that pay well. do not do contract security like allied or securitas.

    Former armed security officer here. Ask me anything, but I'll list a few things off the top of my head
    >worked primarily with the homeless shelters and local city parks
    >terrible relationship with emergency services
    Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Cops would get pissy if we removed people ourselves, but also get pissy if we called them for people who were just refusing to leave. Same with EMS, and fire.
    >you usually get paid more than the people you're guarding for
    Unless you're at a city government building post, you'll probably outearn the employees at your client building.
    >pretty much everyone hates you
    With the cops, at least SOMEONE wants you to show up to a call. With security, the only one that wants you there is some millionaire who essentially just wants a human insurance policy, and you'll never meet him. Everyone thinks you're "doing too much" if you are effective at removing people, and the clients think you're a blooter if you don't cave someone's cranium in for stealing a candy bar
    >tl;dr: it sucks

    Domestic security company jobs are usually for people who want to become cops or people who were cops and are retired. Not worth a shit on their own, but they're nice as a part-time gig. One perk is that you get to explore a lot of your city that is usually off-limits to other people.

    I will say that if you're current military, you should check out overseas security jobs. Constellis paid one of my current coworkers about $200k/year to stand around and guard a farm that was DEFINITELY NOT A COCAINE/OPIOID RACKET. Worth it if you can get in.

    It’s okay for me to talk about my job, as long as I’m not specific. I am the Sergeant of a three-man Rapid Tactical Force at one of America’s largest indoor retail shopping areas. Although there are typically between fifteen and twenty normal security officers working the beat there, we decided a while ago that it would be best to have a specilized force for violent individuals. We use modified electric vehicles and can be anywhere on a given floor within eight and a half minutes.Naturally, the regular security people are unarmed. We “RTFers”, by arrangement with the local police, carry high-strength OC spray and batons. If we have a full tactical alert and permission from the local LEOs we also have a Mossberg 500 with less-lethal rounds and two K-frame Smith .38s loaded with 158gr. LRN.Basically, the situation is that we get the call, we lock up the situation, put everything five by five, and cordon the area until the local authorities arrive. We’re cops, we just don’t get the glory.
