    I got a job offer at Securitas and an interview at G4S on Wednesday. I’ll probably end up going with G4S as it pays better (assuming they offer me a job). My ultimate goal is to use this security guard job as a stepping stone into law enforcement.

  4. tripodurra on June 13, 2020 at 12:01 pm

    I have a D and G active and I’m always trying to be undercut by everyone

  5. Common Sense on June 13, 2020 at 12:01 pm

    I hated G4S. For anyone applying there you have been warned.

    I used to work for Walden Security. The company is horrible and the lack on communication is terrible. I worked there for 3 years, I payed for my own training outside of the company to hopefully get advancement but they refused to advance me. "We need you at your post, we can’t afford to advance you at this time since you’re too valuable to 2nd shift there at your post" -Walden Security. "Hey, train this new person to become your post supervisor", even though I was supposed to be the next post supervisor but after that I left. Now they can’t keep anyone at the post that I was assigned to for more that a month since I left. Now I work for my local government doing parking enforcement. Plan on joining the city police department soon.

    Hey sir, I am a Security Enforcement Officer in Indiana. Am I legally allowed to freelance as a Security Guard? What steps do I take if so?

  9. Daniil Seryy on June 13, 2020 at 12:04 pm

    Some companies they want you to work, but they do want you have fun, but instead get boring, they usually say you here to work not to have fun, and that’s time when you feel like quit and hate your site like I am. Most of the time companies only care about clients and not guards so much, and treat guards like some dogs

  10. Siera Lihuku on June 13, 2020 at 12:07 pm

    I m security but work nothing her mtata, I got training certificate at 2016 job nothing

  11. Ethan Conroy on June 13, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    Alot of the jobs really depend on your site director or manager iv worked for allied for 4 years had one bad director the rest where great as for securitas I heard so much bad they will throw ya under the bus for anything iv heard just as much bad about allied but in my experience depends on the higher ups

  12. cash storeone on June 13, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    The security guards I see on Youtube seem like they are all high school drop outs.

  13. Grego1776 on June 13, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    How good of a security job in the States can I expect to get with several years in a combat arms job in the military plus security contracting experience in Afghanistan?

  14. Daniil Seryy on June 13, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    I work good company, but site they gave me, I hate it so bad, that I just hate to think about

  15. Eric on June 13, 2020 at 12:11 pm

    Forgot to mention that I have a 3rd degree ack belt in kenpo and a red belt in taekwondo and currently studying aikido the best thing I’ve learned is self respect and self restraint

  16. NWA Adventures on June 13, 2020 at 12:12 pm

    Some great stuff here. I’m currently employed with a company that holds federal contracts. My post is typically at my local Social Security Administration. Armed, highly trained, continuous training, and commissioned/contracted under The Department of Homeland Security. It’s has its high and low points but I love my job and can say I do it well. Security professionals get very little info/respect like you provide. PSO/CSOs like me thank you.

  17. Toby Goff on June 13, 2020 at 12:12 pm

    Is there a difference between armed hospital security and regular armed security?

  18. Kevin M on June 13, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    Some things are self evident. For every management level position with a good salary and company supported benefits there are hundreds that don’t pay well, offer nothing in the way of benefits, and experience a high rate of turnover. These base level jobs and the working supervisor positions are staffed by folks that are either poorly motivated or looking for other opportunities.
    Security work is a good work opportunity for those attending college or a trade school, but career opportunities are very limited, and unfortunately involve schmoozing potential clients while attempting to maintain staffing at current client sites.

  19. The Fox on June 13, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    Garda World it’s the best security 🤘👏

  20. Chuckie Payne on June 13, 2020 at 12:19 pm

    Big fan of your videos! I’m currently in the process with Illinois State Police, what part of illinois do you work?

  21. Richard W Bennett on June 13, 2020 at 12:21 pm

    you asked what would be the most important skill?…..Report Writing?….effective report writing…..facts, descriptions, details details details!!!!!!!!
    The most frustrating thing for a site supervisor to deal with.
    Communication is key for most any security professional.

  22. Not a Liberal or a Republican on June 13, 2020 at 12:23 pm

    I do Mental health watch as a Hospital Security Officer. The job is stressful for most people, but if you enjoy being hands on and diffusing situations then do Hospital Security! Bigger Hospitals are better

  23. Blue Maize on June 13, 2020 at 12:24 pm

    These guys are idiots

  24. Christyne Long on June 13, 2020 at 12:26 pm

    I’ve worked security post after security post after security post and none were even close to similar
    They’re all unique

  25. Richard W Bennett on June 13, 2020 at 12:26 pm

    Absolutely…..totally agree…guess I was looking at it from my level ….trying to figure out what is being communicated….and translate to a client.

  26. Anastacio Rodriguez on June 13, 2020 at 12:26 pm

    loving it

  27. Computer Wisdom on June 13, 2020 at 12:29 pm

    The scary thing about being a security officer/guard,is that most do not carry the proper tools like law enforcement do.Even though you are the authority figure for the account that your assign to protect.The only protection that most guards wear,are their uniforms that resembles law enforcement for deterrent purposes.Sadly this can also make you a target with out the proper knowledge and gear to defend your self.

  28. MG Knows on June 13, 2020 at 12:29 pm

    Some people just dont understand that everyone’s security experience is not just based on the company they work for. It’s all on the office of that company you get hired into, the management that’s in charge of you, and the contracts they throw you under. I’ve been with Allied Universal for 2 years, and to be honest my first year was trash because of the branch I got hired into. Thank God I moved, and left on good terms because the Allied branch In the city I live in now has a much better management team running it. I don’t know how much longer I would of lasted in the last one, but the office in charge of me now has been taking great care of me.

  29. Tanner B on June 13, 2020 at 12:30 pm

  34. Bonginkosi Khohliso on June 13, 2020 at 12:33 pm

    I would really to work in the U. S as a security officer. I think it is better than what I have here in South Africa

  35. Eric on June 13, 2020 at 12:33 pm

    To be a good guard I think you need to have great customer service skills and honesty and integrity

  36. Diana & Jorge Loyal Ones on June 13, 2020 at 12:33 pm

  37. Lohst on June 13, 2020 at 12:36 pm

  39. TheThejaketucker on June 13, 2020 at 12:39 pm

    I work for Securitas Temecula office . They are kind and understanding managers. Some assignments are so lame , checking IDs at the over 55 community sucks a hard knob . But the assignment I have now is sitting in an empty parking lot for 8 hours. I have played dozens of poker tournaments on my phone . Thanks for keeping me company

  40. CJ on June 13, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    I’ve been doing security for close to 15 years, and I’m starting to hate the fuck out of it.

    I’ve tried to get into armed security, but; I had my money stolen from me by those "companies" that you had to pay to get a job. Over $3,000 out of my pocket lost☹️!

    And, even if I wanted to get a job in armed security, there’s no guarantee that I’m gonna get hired due to the fact of me not having a law enforcement/military background.

    Why do most companies always want retured LEO’s for armed security? Can someone please answer me that🤷‍♂️?!

  41. RkR5 RkR5 on June 13, 2020 at 12:44 pm

    Again, excellent points! Some security companies tell you one thing during the interview and on board training. Once you actually get to the site you will find out what the job duties consist of. Each site is different and it matters if the site supervisors are good. If you run across issues such as bad attitudes, complacent officers, zero training, and your soon to be coworkers on site simply do not care. Run! Safety is a big one especially working at power plants, chemical plants, fracking sites, and other industry type sites. So many dangerous things can happen that can kill you being around these sites. I always ask where is the MSDS book and emergency site plan and compare the on site post order instructions. I taught all of my officers where the chemicals are stored and what those chemicals are at the site I was on. It was a coal fired power plant. This includes tanker trucks hauling different material like ammonium hydroxide, caustic soda, liquid methane, etc. I even made sure they knew what those chemicals can do to you, and where all safety equipment is located if you come into contact with whatever is on site. Spills, leaks, and break downs can occur at any time. If an emergency happens know who to call and report to. Know exactly what to do for any situation that may occur. If you ask these questions when first arriving on site for duty and the supervisor or officers have no clue what you are talking about. Run!

    I work for G4S in Maryland. I ‘ve an A A in criminal justice with additional 9 credits in criminal justice. I ‘ve 9 years of security work experience.
    What is G4S a good company to work for, or should I look for another company?

    Thank you,

  43. Louis Castillo on June 13, 2020 at 12:46 pm

    Aloha as someone new into being a security guard, what are your views on big companies like securitas or g4s?

  44. G B on June 13, 2020 at 12:47 pm

    I used to work in security, then I got an opportunity to improve myself and climb up the social ladder , I now pick up litter outside McDonald’s!

    Great video as always!

    I’m sure you’ve got a lot of video requests! Perhaps you could do one on general investigation techniques?

  47. Brad Joiner on June 13, 2020 at 12:50 pm

    I can’t seem to find part2 of this segment.

  48. Computer Wisdom on June 13, 2020 at 12:50 pm

    We should all go back to the old Pinkerton days,before the government gave are jobs away to law enforcement.LoL
