It is extremely easy to get a well paying high mana overnight wizard security post especially part time, if you are willing to do what it takes, as a wizard who worked overnight security at hotels, airports, residentials, construction sites and offices I will tell you how.
1.Get qualified. This is where most wizards fall short, to be hired for a respectable overnight security job you will need your DCJS Unarmed Security Guard License, this relatively simple to get, I recommend searching classified for DCJS training in your area (they will fingerprint you file your paperwork, train you for 16 hours and give you the test)
2.Wait patiently. Your DCJS will take a very long time to clear (we are talking 2 months possibly longer or shorter) the good news is you will get a temporary certificate much sooner and this will enable you to work
3. Embelish your resume. Know how to use Microsoft Excel? Ms Office Specalist, Like to draw? Free Lance Artist, Ever theoretically helped your parents run a fictitious home business? Site Manager you get the drift, try to add whatever you can that has some connection to on site security, or just ball out and lie like I did because they never really check your past employment or references (before I had stepped foot on a job site I was already an experienced Security Guard with 3 years on job)
3. Get yourself out there. This is both the easiest and most frustrating period, here are some tips to getting hired quickly (A)remember the training school you went to, well a lot of those training schools are security provider companies, if you talk to your instructor you could guarantee favor ability once your license clears (B)Browse Classified and Indeed obsessively, copy and paste your embellished resume to any security job you find
But The best way to get hired is to apply in person/online with the top security providers in your state/region, put in an application and call them all the time to query job availability
4. Negotiate.if you do the steps above I guarantee you interviews and in these interviews you will have a chance to discuss what you are looking for out of the job, (what you want) (1) Overnight: best wizardly time if you want absolute minimal interaction (2) somewhere close or metro accessible: If you dont drive do not take a post that is 2-3 hours away or requires 3 buses and a train (unless you work part time then maybe its not so bad) (3) the right hours, if your looking at paying for rent and food but not wage slaving I recommend part time 2 days a week work
(3)Pay:generally with no experience expect the pay to be crappy (not Mcdonalds crap not still bad) you can try and negotiate a dollar here or there but without experience I wouldn't push to hard
(5) The Site and the Hours, Generally Sites can be ranked on a scale of 1-10 (10 being most comfy) on the lower end 1-4 (Loss Prevension, Event Security, Airport Security, High Crime index Site etc) expect to be standing a bunch, monitored by either the site or your employer, relived at the end of your shift (which means if your relief is late you have to wait), have nothing to do (like standing at a door entrance or doorway), constant patrols,
at the other end of the spectrum 7-10 (supreme wizardly comfort) (Residential Security, Hotel Security, Construction Site Security, Nature Reserve Security etc) expect a comfy monitoring room or concierge desk to post in, no supervision and no interaction with people, on site computers and facilities (gym, rec room, library, pool etc) to use, quiet site with no noise complaints, no relief/ Currently I work full time at a site thats about an 8 on the comfort scale and honestly I dont feel like I'm working, it feels like I just dress up and travel to a second home where I can swim, work out, play pool and read books then come home undress and sleep. Tips to getting the perfect site (1) dont get complacent at a site you hate talk to your supervisor about switching sites or look for another company (2) try to get a floater shift or rover shift this will allow you to travel to multiple sites so once you found the perfect one you can talk to your supervisor about going permanent at that site (2) talk to your supervisor, if a site seems comfy it probably is (hotel gigs are great sometimes you get free restaurant meals)
(6) Dont Mess up, I have been fired from 4 different companies for tardiness and sleeping on the job, If you are going to sleep on the job find somewhere private and KEEP YOUR PHONE ON YOU, I cant tell you how many people are fired because they went somewhere to sleep had their phone on silent when a supervisor came through. Dont worry about cameras watching you the footage is watched only if an incident occurs
Honestly at my current job alot of days I just dont show up, since there is no clock in/out system and I have no relief, there really is no way to tell if I showed up or not (other than random inspections and cameras).
anyways I hope this ridiculously long post helps you find a wizardly job perfect for you.
