  • Your post and or your job?

    I would say "in house" would be your job and "contract" would be a post

    My post: Huge corporate/industrial site

    Routine day: Start at 15:30 getting my officers out and on rounds, I then catch up on paperwork from any previous shift. I drive employees of the site to the train station if needed, lock gates, take down flags. As it slows down and most employees have left the complex, I will fall into rounds with my officers. I respond to all alarms and any other incident that may arise, during the shift, we have an INTENSE fire alarm system. If really slow I will preform my monthly safety checks, write up any hazard, and make sure everything is in order.

    Just curious about you other folks jobs/posts, gives me an idea of reasoning when I read replies from you all

    I'm the Assistant Director of Security for 3 hotels but I also cover one of the shifts at the largest hotel.

    My day starts at 15h00. For incidents in an hotel this is the busiest time. During the day most of the guests are out. Overnight they are sleeping.

    The first part of my day is dealing with administration issues. Checking mail, e-mail & voice mail. Doing the payroll & the dreaded scheduling!

    I usually schedule meetings for 16h00.

    As the Maids leave for the day they turn in the items they have found in the rooms. They have to given an item number & recorded in the computer.

    The Maids turn in their key sets as they leave. All have to be accounted for & searched for if not turned in.

    In the 8 hour shift I usually can only squeeze in 2 top to bottom patrols. (25 story bulding). Fire extinguishers & sprinkler shut off valves are visually checked on every patrol. Maintenance is advised if something is not right, The Houseman & Room Service is called if things that people can trip over are left in the hallway. (Room Service trays etc).

    A we are completely responsible for the electronic lock system including repairing & replacing locks, a good part of my day is spent doing this. With 500 rooms there is always something preventive that needs to be doen.

    I am also responsible for the restocking & ordering supplies for the 4 first aid kits that belong to the hotel. (The 2 kitchens are concessions & have their own).

    We also have to inspect rooms where Maids have reported that there is still luggage inside but the guests were supposed to have departed. If they are not in the room & haven't paid for another night or haven't paid with a credit card we have to pass a new key card in their lock so their card will no longer work & they have to pass by the front desk when they return. If it is someone who we have had to chase to get payment we sometimes double lock the door. This prevents any key from working so even if an employee accidently makes them a new key card without checking that they owe us money, they can't get in the room until we remove the double lock.

    We respond to & take reports of all damage claims in the garage.

    Through out the shift we act as First Responders for all emergencies from disturbances to fire alarms to medical/accidents.

    We report to management all safety hazards & employees breaking regulations.

    During my shift I'm on call to give advice to the Duty Managers at the other 2 hotels. (We don't have 24 hour a day security at these 2 hotels.) If they have a lock problem that can't wait until the security comes in I have to try & direct them over the phone how to take care of it.

    I finish at the hotel at 23h00. Sometimes I stop by the pharmacy with the chip from the digital camera to have photos printed. I get home around midnight then I'm on call mainly to give advice to the Officers working overnight at the 3 hotels. We say that sometimes two heads are better than one! On a rare occasion I would have to go to one of the hotel for an emergency but usually it's enough just to give guidance over the phone.

    My boss takes over the on call duties at 05h00 but he hasn't done any shifts in the hotels in about 10 years now so I'm still woken up once in a while to deal with something like "where is the key to open x door". Otherwide I sleep from 05h00 to 13h00 .

    I think that's my day!
    I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

        My job?!?!

        Title: Director Of Security

        Type: Mall Security, Corporate, In-house

        [B]Hours:B] Hours range, during weekdays, except fridays, its in the office at 9, and varies way to much to when I get out. Some days, I am lucky and can blow out at 6 or 7, but generally I am done by 10pm. Fridays and Saturday, its in a noon till 3 or 4am.

        Duties: Well, there are so many. But, I typically handle getting new training in, ensuring policy and procedure guidelines are followed, public relations with a variety of people and organizations, meetings on safety and security issues with mall and community, Mentor and advisor to the mall management and corporation, deligation of responsibilities and special assignments for the staff, development and impliment new procedures to combat safety and criminal activity, HR topics, accident investigations, and of course any of the basic duties the standard officer would do as I have time to do.

        There are so many other things I am sure are not coming to mind, but will hit me first thing when I go in..LOL.. When i first took over this department, I thought corporate hated me, or someone was just being aweful. It was a mess, along with the staff. After cleaning out issues and personnel, and getting in high quality personnel, I found that assigning them some of my own duties not only gave them new things to accomplish and taek pride in, but kept them from going insane when it was boring!

                Title: Security Officer
                Type: Contract, corporate: 1,600+ employees, 5 building = 44 stories.
                Shift: 1600-0000 weekends 1530-0000 weekdays
                Location: Downtown

                Duties: Duties differ between shifts, weekdays and weekends. During the week between 1530 to 1700 a perimeter patrol. The rest of the night patrol all buildings floor by floor inside and out. Check alarms, door checks and escort employees to parking garages. If I'm lucky I get a cleaning detail and I stand around from 1700 to 2000 doing pretty much nothing, boring. During the weekends same thing except no perimeter patrol and no cleaners. Third shift performs card reader checks interior and exterior at least one a week. First shift has a Lobby Officer. Safety patrols are done everyday, but rotates between shifts and buildings.

                    Director of Market and Development.

                    I start at 9am and work untill 5pm.

                    We work areas that have high residential crime and contact the business managers in those areas. We also work off of information given to us by our intell division that supplies us with contracts in jeapordy run by other security companies, its cut throat, but when ours are in jeapordy we refer other companies to come and take them. Its a good setup, this way we are all working together instead of against each other.

                        TITLE- GSA contract guard
                        TYPE- Contract
                        SHIFT- M-F, 0600-1400
                        LOCATION- Downtown Seattle
                        DUTIES- Xray, magnetometer in the lesser used entrance...Usually a slower post, but those of us stuck there are there based on our ability to handle what comes up and apply common sense principles to the job. Weapons in about 4-6 times a day, lots of drug paraphernalia, and the occasional (like today) wackjob anti-government-white-separatist-militiaman-conspiracy-theorist with a concealed weapon and an attitude. Used to bounce around a lot on special assignments, but this works well with the wife and kiddo's schedule.

                        I also occasionally pick up EP details on my weekends, and if it pays well enough, I'll take a day off to work one.
