Ok so I know you have to go to the academy for 40 hrs to get security licence. What I want to know is how hard is it to get a security job after you have the licence? I don't care if its small or medium guard companies..I just want to know is it based on a merit system...you have the licence so you can walk into a guard company and they will hire you or is it harder. I have 10 years experience.

As an ex cop Ive viewed what is out there. They pay garbage for security. Think about it just to get your G license you will have to spend several hundred dollars to make 10 bucks an hour. Then take it to another level,,,they are paying you 10 dollars an hour to carry a gun and have all the responsibility that it requires. Yeah I think its easy to get a job but is it worth it? Id say no.

I'd hate to wear the uniform and be forced to not wear a gun.
All or nothing, it's dangerous out there and the criminals certainly will have guns.
I wouldn't take a bullet for somebody's property. And it's too hot to wear a vest.

My nephew was on his way to the G license when he discovered he could quickly get a better paying retail job.

Plenty of jobs but mostly minimum wage.
