    At Boeing where I work $14.25 - $30.00/hr. These are 1st shift wages. 2nd and 3rd shift wages are more due to shift differentials. We are all armed, proprietary security officers. We get all the same benefits as any Boeing employee.

    The 3 hotels I work for have the same principal owner & same senior management but are registered a individual companies. Therefore pay & other things are not the same at each hotel.

    The largest, the downtown hotel, pays $13.48/hour after 1 year. (It starts at around $11.50). We also give free meals. Free parking. Prescription drug coverage. Free rooms when you have to do 2 shifts with only 8 hours between them. Employee rate at any of the chain's thousands of hotels world wide. 7 legal holidays per year (double time if you have to work). 5 sick days.

    The Officers working at the 280 room hotel by the airport are considered employees of the downtown hotel & receive the same pay & benefits. The downtown hotel bills the airport hotel. Both a francises (sp?) of the same chain

    Our newest hotel which is right next door to the other one at the airport only pays $10.00/hour with almost the same benefits but no sick days.

    We are In-House.

    In Quebec most Contract Security Officers are unionized. Those that are not are covered by a government decree. (I don't know exactly how this works since I have not worked contract security since 1976!) I believe the set rate for the contract people is presently $12.50/hour. (Sounds high compared to what a lot of you in the US are making but remember Quebec is the highest taxed place in North America-granted we have free medical care-government car insurance etc-also it's in Canadian dollars so we need to pay about 20% extra for a lot of the things we buy from the US).

    Depends on the position and grade you're hired at with us. Starting is roughly 15.00 an hour for field officers and much higher for dispatchers and lead officers, averaging 19-22 to start. As they have several pay grades and steps its usually all over the place and takes a crystal ball and some runes to explain to new hires. But much better than comparable contract pays.

    Nationally, the median wage for security officers is $1,660 per month ($9.60 per hour). Half of all security officers earn between $1,370 and $2,090 per month ($7.88 and $12.06 per hour).

    Canada is weird that way. Some provinces don't make you pay for 'basic' healthcare (Ontario for example) and some do make you pay (alberta). Anything extra, like eyecare, dental etc, can be covered by employers, or it cannot. For example, i get 100% coverage on dental, medical, prescriptions, but only get $600/2yrs for eyecare. Each company is different.

    Most companies do not offer, any benefits to any part-time employees. Usually f/t and up. Furthermore, if you work for a gov't agency, the benefits are usually MUCH better. In addition, you don't really pay for the benefits. There are plans you can buy through private insurace (bluecross, etc) that get you benefits. And yes, our taxes are much higher than what you guys pay in the USA.

    In many provinces most dental/optical work isn't covered; as well, private insurance often covers dispensing fees for medications, as well as stuff that isn't covered by public health insurance (such as anti-acne creams).

    Salary

    Here are some Canadian stat's:

    The average wage in Canada for a security guard/officer is around $10/hr. That includes LPO's. Most contract companies do not offer benefits, however, most retailers offer benefits for FT employees.

    I am employed as a Special Constable (peace officer) and the pay range (depending on experience, who your employer is, etc) is $38,600 - $57,900/year. I've been here for a year, and have 8 yrs exp and bachelor in crim justice, and i Get $49,750/year with full benefits.

    PI's can make some serious $$$, depending on the caseload. Corporate security advisors can make up to $70K here in Alberta, and higher in B.C and Ontario.

    I have a friend that owned property in Brooklyn and his prices are through the roof..starting at 600 a month.

    Comparative Cost of Living Index vs. Pay Scale.

    "Comfortably" is variable.
