    One of the scale operators at the plant where I work refers to us as Watchmen all the time. "Here's your paperwork and bill of lading and this stack goes to the Watchman on your way out."

    Keep in mind, Wackenhut is in a fight with several unions, and some people in the media are sympethatic. Anything that can be used to prove "Wackenhut's gross incompetence, which is why YOU need to join the SEIU RIGHT NOW" will be published, so it can be touted about as THE WORD OF GOD HIMSELF.

    Because we all know the media can only print the truth.

    (Note: It was ruled that television stations have no duty to report the truth, after one was sued for basically making stories up. The court found no fraud or actionable activity on the part of the station or the reporters.)

    The wackenhut ad here, states you must have a year of experience. Isn't that kind of hard for a 18 year old?
    Generic Security Company Interviewer: So, to work at this company, you need experience. What security experience do you have?

    18 Year Old Kid: For the last two summers I guarded my uncle's construction site at night.

    Interviewer: Did you ever fall asleep?

    Kid: ............ .............. Yes.

    Interviewer: How often?

    Kid: ............ ............. A few times

    Interviewer: Did they ever catch you?

    Kid: No.

    Interviewer: Welcome aboard! Leave payment for your security licence and uniforms with the receptionist (cash, certified cheque or money orders only), and we'll give you a call to set up your training day.

    I find it to be a very odd story. First of all, TSOs are entry level, no experience required, USOs require a year experience, CPOs require a much more strigent requirements (experience-wise, we still get dumb CPOs).

    They said they were 18 and 19. So I would assume that they were TSOs. I don't know that area but in most areas anything Transit like that required you to be a CPO with LE/CO experience. But I'll refrain from Monday Morning QB'ing.

    The point of the matter is, people steal. I don't care if your a cop, s/o, burger-flipper, janitor, what have you.

    I once was a shift supervisor for security at a major international airport in MI. The only people who could get into our office, was the Shift Supervisors and Airport Police Officers. We literally as supervisors had to let our people into the office. We also had to open the door and supervise housekeeping when they cleaned the office.

    I had purchased a brand new fancy smancy pair of patrol gloves (kevlar puncture protection, bio protection, etc). I was very much happy with my purchase. After my shift one day I left them in my pigeonhole by accident.

    Do you think they were there when I got back?? Nope.

    If they were from some rinky dink local company it wouldn't even had made a mention on this board probably.

    We have several Wackenhut employees here.

    (Hi, Tim.)

    So, how do you prevent this? Hire people over 25? Hire people wit... with what, actually?

    Two kids (18 and 19 are children to me, I'm sorry, I'm old.) stole a PS3 or 360 or something. (A DS is a bit small to put "sophisticated tracking devices" in...)

    No matter what their ethnic background they make all of us look bad. I mean, thefts are so bad at a facility which has contract security assigned to it that the police have to conduct an investigation? That alone is sad. But to find out those very SOs are the ones breaking into vehicles? That's too much.

    maybe they should hire someone that's been here a few years first. Had time to dry themselves.
