Personally, I’ll say look for federal security jobs. Those have the potential to be a upward from 18 to 30 depending on the area. If it’s a tourist destination than you can make even more! Those, who do not will have a hard time wrestling with 10 to 14H jobs that take if you miss one day!

Always ask about the shifts available. Be firm when stating availability, if you can't work overnight, say so. Ask about starting pay and their sick time policy. Just remember, be confident and firm when asking them, I have 2 years of experience in security and asking questions has given me weekends off, raises and more paid training.

I would ask what the experience and/or training is needed to be considered for a position? Will there be on the job training? If so, is it paid? How much do officers make for start pay? Is there vacation or sick time off? Does the company/site allow for discretion when schedules are made when employees are college students? Are the uniforms supplied including footwear? Is overtime paid x1/2?

The one question I would ask is if the job is student friendly, in the sense can they accommodate student with busy schedules and how would the pay work with that. The second question would be what are the rates when it comes to upward mobility for officers, does it happen more often than not or vice versa.

One of the biggest questions that you need to be clear on is the job right for you. Security is much different that law enforcement and is not for just any body .
  1. How do they manage their SOs
  2. How would they measure your success
  3. What advancement opportunity is available ( Growth with in the company )
  4. What training do they have a certification with in the structure
These are just a few questions that you need to ask. Remember you are selling your own capabilities and you are looking to build you own capacity. Make sure they have something to offer you other than a pay check . In the security you need to strive for a certification as a CPP ( Certified Protection Professional. Join ASIS ( American Society of Industrial Security ) and net work and expand you own training .
