    I just got a job offer!

    I interviewed for a job as a security guard at a local gated community last week. I got a call today and the guy that interviewed me said that they gave that position to someone with more experience, but I seemed like a nice young man and who had a genuine interest in Security so he wanted to offer me a job as a on-call fill in guard!

    He said that they don't have a lot of contracts in the area, so it wouldn't be a lot of work, but it would be a way to get started in the industry. I'm going to Tampa for orientation next week!

    My brother was a security guard at a gated community in St. Petersburg, FL. He was not allowed to carry a gun and was paid minimum wage for nite shift. Unless there is room for advancement you would get more action as a greeter at Wal-Mart.
