Typical temporary or seasonal gigs. Do not expect any kind of long term job security or advancement. Yearly in house training sessions. Guards are ranked by military grades ex: private, sergent, captain ect.. Vacations and assignments given by seniority. Poor work-family conciliation. Having kids or a life outside work is frowned upon.
Guards are sent as sub contractors in regular businesses to avoid the company having to hire you but, you are treated like regular employee. Pay is a bit higher than expected but, guards always get the worse assignments that no other worker or department wants. Your likely to be assigned during an odd schedule pretty much anywhere where dangerous incidents may happen or have happened without always being told about the dangers but, expected to prevent and anticipate them.
Regular staff always try to blame guards whenever anything goes wrong. No room for advancement. Management expects you to find innovative ways to manage your own area while they are busy doing only meetings and supervision.
Some coworkers will throw you under the bus over anything. Management will like you as long as you are looking good, act ignorant and don't disturb them for any reason. When they come see how you are doing your work it usually means your in trouble. If you or a coworker messes up or angers manager usually you or the entire team gets punished. Teamwork & collaboration with other departments required to succeed.
