A typical day begins with reading reports from previous shift, observe caneras, observe employees, contractors and visitors coming and going, perform interior/exterior patrols and then respond to any incidents, perform assignments as needed throughout the day.I learned new ways to deal with different people, some computer skills as well as management – more... skills.Management allowed plenty of training opportunities as well as opportunities to travel to different client sites and advancement opportunities.Coworkers seemed to enjoy the job, communicated well and were prepared and willing to instantly assist each other in any way.The hardest part of the job was some long shifts and working holidays away from my family.The best part of the job was visiting different client sites, learning a cool job and having the opportunity to advance from your initial position. – less
