  • How many security jobs have you had?

    I read some people's posts on here and they seem to have a never-ending supply of stories about different jobs they've had in the security industry. That brings me to wonder how many jobs you guys have had?

      if you count loss prevention

      if you count loss prevention as seperate from security officer then i have had two, security officer and loss prevention, as well as security for various community dances (basic stuff).

        I worked for 1 company for a year (Warm Body, 18-19), then another company for another year (Gave New Meaning to the term Warm Body, 19-20), then worked for a third company for 5 years, worked for something else (Walmart) for a year, then worked for the third company again. Then I moved.

                About 9 months with the company I'm with now posted at a chemical plant.
                Went back to work at the Fire Department for about 8 months then quit.
                Called up my old supervisor from the chemical plant and got rehired with the same security company but this time assigned to a Steel Mill. Been there now for about 15 months.
                So a little over 2 years, with a break of a few months.
                Before that I was a Firefighter. Going back even further I worked as a Correctional Officer for the State.

                    1994 - 95 (In house - very good) 1 company
                    1994 - 95 Warm body Field Sup - Crap company
                    1995 - 96 (site sup - bit better than warm body) 1 company
                    1996 - 2006 Opps Manager, Training Manager to Branch Manager (with a two year break for the OEF and OIF) 6 companies. Accounts range from high end to warm body.

                      One company for 7 years. Just ready to celebrate 5 years at the same hospital and prior to that I worked every kind of concert, fair, exhibition you can imagine. Our company started out as an Event Services company and evolved into Security.

                        Dear gosh. How do we make any progress when it seems most of us are changing companies every year or so?

                          74-82 AF active duty ( air guard until 2004), 82-84 naval yard security, 84-04 aLE with part time 20 year defense contractor security thrown in, 2 retirements in 04 and now University security. There does seem to be alot of job shopping going on. But most folks seem to have gotten used to eating and having a roof over thier heads. Our industry isn't well known for great pay and benefits, I did a few stints for Pinkerton and a few other small companies but those didn't last long at all.

                            I forgot a few.

                            Montreal continued to operate a exposition for a few years after the International Exposition (Expo 67). I was 12 years old & a Boy Scout. Part of our duties was crowd control. I have to admit, I got bit by the "power trip" bug

                            As a member of a Civil Defense group we did crowd control during parades.

                            And while in college taking Police Tech I worked as a student Campus Patroller.
                            I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

                              I've been with Guardsmark since August 2000. The first three years at an insurance company, then I moved and was tranfered to my current account which is a large chemical plant. Along the way I've filled in at nine other sites when they where short offivcers (never turn down overtime.) I like what I do now but can't live off the pay so I'm hoping to be changing employers soon.
