  • On the job ghost encounters

    Wasn't there an ongoing thread on this forum about ghost sightings and other paranormal stuff? What happened to it? I searched and nothing came up. Sucks because as much as I get creeped the hell out by that stuff and can't sleep afterwards, I absolutely loved reading all the posts lol.

    I was at a just finished vacant hi-rise apts (after several GC's went broke and had at least one guy killed on the job) that had a funky elevator in the lobby by our post. About every 10-90mins randomly it would make noise like it was about to operate. This really freaked out at least one guy, after I told him about the guy that was killed. There was also a CCTV that would get weird stuff on the screen randomly. You could hear the elevator and rewind the CCTV and see....SOMETHING maybe moving near the buttons on at least one floor, if you wanted to talk yourself into it.

    At a multi-acre office site we had to do about 15 min Detex round over 3 buildings and 2 stories of mostly dark offices. We had a "standie" of Al Pacino from "Scarface" we keep moving around so when the next guy did his rounds, around a corner in the dark he'd suddenly see someone standing. Never failed to "get" you. You'd always forget it was coming doing a round at 3am. We had one guard from Jamaica and story is she freaked out and fled after this stunt was pulled on her.

    Did graveyard during county fair and played same game with a clown standie. Nothing more scary than a clown that keeps moving to new spots at 3am. It had maniacal way too happy to be sane face and weird eyes that seemed to follow you! With that and the creepy Carnies I felt like I was in a Scooby Do episode.

    Lots of good ghost stories on youtube. Also lots of good "creepy people" that IMO is good education for Security because they are mostly about how weirdos will come up with all sorts of new unexpected ways to con regular people.

      That's some creepy stuff! I remember years ago when I worked security at the JW Marriott in SF, we had a guy jump from the 19th floor to the lobby down below. Ever since, employees claimed to have seen the ghost of the guy pacing back and forth near the area where he jumped. I never saw anything (and I worked graveyard) but I always felt weirded out anytime I'd do my checks of the nineteen floor, haha!

        I told this one here years ago - worked in an office building where a high profile attorney died of a heart attack at his desk one night. The law firm moved, so the whole floor was empty for years. Anyways, the elevator would run up and down all night long to the floor; elevator co. claimed it was a glitch and periodically came out to fix it.

        So one night I'm on the floor, walk into his office, and say, "Hey man, I'm just the night guard here, and this elevator thing is creeping me out. You can you just stop for awhile?" No kidding - the elevator stopped for about 3 hours - and then back to the running up and down routine...

            I used to work in an 18 story bank building downtown. When you got off the elevator on the tops 2 or 3 floors you could feel the building sway in the wind.

            All 6 elevators would randomly go up and down all night

            when I opened the doors to the stair wells you could hear the wind howling in the stair wells.

              During my stint with the Department of Veterans Affairs Police, the top couple of floors in our main building had

              developed a reputation for strange phenomena. Employees would periodically come down from those floors with

              reports of working alone and having their hair pulled or being tripped while walking. One of the other police officers

              related to us about patrolling one of those empty floors during a night shift and hearing his name whispered behind

              him. I, myself, never experienced any high strangeness while patrolling those upper floors, but I absolutely believe

              my partner.

              Years prior, I was a police officer with the Coulee Dam Police Department. The community has had an interesting

              history relating to the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam, and I believe some of that history has left some

              residual energy. I worked the night shift and the police department was in the basement of the city hall. The entire

              building was known for it's continuous supernatural disturbances. The Police Chief had mentioned seeing shadowy

              shapes showing up on his CCTV recordings, and the Sergeant mostly avoided stepping foot inside the police

              department after sunset. If the Sergeant had no choice but to enter the department after dark, every light in the

              place would be turned on. Every individual police officer had stories about strange occurrences happening on their

              shifts.


              I am no exception.


              There were many shifts where my partner and I would be at the police department typing our reports when we'd

              both hear noises in the city hall offices upstairs. Some instances there were the sounds of boxes and chairs sliding

              across the wooden floor of the convention room directly above us. Others were instances where we'd hear

              footsteps on the wooden stairs leading from the police department downstairs to the city hall upstairs. There were

              other times where we'd hear various doors of the city hall offices being slammed shut. It happened enough

              to the point where my partner and I would hear these noises, look at each other, and silently get up and proceed to

              the stairs to city hall to start the systematic search without a word. We both knew that we'd heard the sounds. We

              both knew that we'd search and find nothing. We both knew that we had to search, regardless.


              By far the most memorable experience that I had in that police department happened one night while I was in the

              building alone finishing a report. It was toward the middle of my night shift, around midnight or 0100, if I remember

              correctly. I was tired and struggling to stay awake while typing and my eyelids were starting to slowly close.

              Suddenly I was snapped awake by an energy in the room. It was a sensation that I can only describe as an

              overwhelming presence that I could sense in the corner of the room over my right shoulder. At this point I knew that

              I was the only one in the building, and I knew about the supernatural activity there. With these things in mind, I

              sincerely believed that I was going to look over my right shoulder at where I could sense the presence and not see

              anyone there. I was correct. I looked over my right shoulder at the corner of the room where I sensed the presence

              and saw nothing. Even as I was looking at the spot on the floor where someone should have been standing, I could

              still feel eyes watching me. It was an intense energy.

              I finished typing that report as quickly as I could and left the police department. I didn't go back to the department

              until the end of my shift.
