  • $14/hr for Oakland Zoo security, including cashier audit, revenue escort, etc???

    Guard Card AND EMT cert REQUIRED prior to hire!

    Ain't Jokeland supposed to be a $15/hr min wage city soon?

    Sheesh, in the SF Bay area I wont even "sleep in a strange bed" for less than $18.

    This job sounds like you would be constantly working hard. "finding lost patrons".

    Oh well, maybe it would look good on resume for more serious position like entry level cop trainee.

    I might be able to top you, Squid. Granted, the position starts at $17.00 p/h, but you are the "Security / Coordinator" at...a Seattle homeless women's low barrier housing camp. (For those not familiar with the term "low barrier," it means you can drink and shoot heroin and not get busted.) Duties include keeping unauthorized persons out of the area while doing janitorial work in the restrooms, the vacant units, the office; checking patrons in and out; enforcing the rules; cleaning and prepping vacant units for the next tenant; calling emergency services when needed. Oh, I forgot "light maintenance" (snake that toilet clogged with women's products and needles). The ad has been up over a month...

      If you don't like it, don't apply, not that you're qualified.

      Why do you continually denigrate jobs that are posted? So they don't meet your exacting requirements, so what? At least it's an openg, and someone gets a job, instead of...oh...I don't know...sleeping while guarding things..? I notice your biggest issue with this job appears that you would have to "work hard." That speaks volumes about your lack of work ethic.

      Someone working means someone not a bum, stealing, using govt funds, increasing self worth and actually contributing to society.

      You, you are the personification of a critic: one who THINKS they know something about everything, but in reality, know NOTHING about anything.

        yeah, and IIRC Seattle is another uber-left high min wage city.

        one thing about all these "shelters" is they got so many weird rules it seems like it would be hard to bootstrap out of job-wise.

        I remember one where it was "in by 6pm, out by 6am". When I'm job hunting I don't even make calls until 10am because office types don't start till 9am.

          work on your reading comprehension

          1/2 my post was mentioning how this sites demanding duties could be a GOOD thing, especially as stepping stone career move

          I mostly mentioned it because it sounded very unusual. How many openings are there for world class ZOO employment?

          Oakland is a major zoo, btw, just did a big expansion. How big? Lots of NIMBYs were up in arms.

            Squid - Yes, Seattle is uber liberal - one of the city council members is from the Socialist Party. The rest are tax and spend millionaires (limo liberals).

            Businesses are getting around the $15.00 minimum wage that cities have imposed - most Seattle contract companies pay $15.00 for in-city sites, but there's at least one that pays $13.00-$14.00 p/h for Seattle - I have no idea how they're doing it legally, except that they aren't based in the city or county.

            Part of it may be that with the active shooter incidents this year, businesses want "protection," but don't want a typical guard just sitting and collecting a paycheck. So they add in a bunch of other stuff to keep them busy. That's fine, but I wouldn't call it a "security" position if you're only doing it 20% of the day.
