    How much do security guards make usually?

    and if you're doing this at the moment, what's your experience with it? Good, bad? Horrible?

    My step-dad owns a security company. I recently just got my security license and will be working this summer for around $15 an hour at events. It may be different if hired by the event, or if you're working at clubs etc.

    Aren't you referring to bouncers? I mean something like mall security, event security, building etc.

    Do you always need a license? even if the job description says "No exp necessary, Full training provided"?

    From what I've seen, it looks either really boring or extremely live.

    I want to put this lifting to good use and build on my resume'; so I don't mind too much if it's boring.

    I'm not sure. I think in Ontario it recently became law that security guards must be licenesed through the ministry. Before that you didn't have to get licensed, or have any prior training as far as I know, that may be how it is in other places.

    I make $14 an hour. But I have a position where I just sit and watch movies/play games/read books all night. There are more active accounts where I could go, but I like where I'm at. I've worked mainly in office buildings, mostly at night. I've done various other stuff too, including 18 hours of watching a parked train, sitting in my car the entire time (was only supposed to be 12 hours, but the next guy never showed up).

    When I did security for the Vikings through a contract company I think I was making $16 an hour.

    Depends on the state and company. I've worked for three companies, none of which required a license or experience. Two of them gave two days of paid training, one gave a six hour unpaid orientation. My current company gives $1 more an hour if you become a Certified Protection Officer, and all you need to do is take a test.

    my friend works as a security guard at a large corporate office. makes like 13-14 bucks an hour something like that.

    some of his co workers make fairly big bucks via overtime. you have guys who never say no to a shift and end up walking away with pretty good money considering you aren't really doing any work. the hardest part of the job is staying awake for so long especially working overnight.

    personally i'd treat it as a source of income but nothing more (not exactly a long term career). definitely a dead-end, boring ass job but it'll get you some bucks if you're willing to put a lot of hours in.

    My current company hates overtime.

    The best one I worked at (and got fired from so I can't go back) had this sort of thing. I was a rover, picking up hours whenever someone called in, or when they had special things (like the train). One week I racked up 40+ hours in three days, then had the rest of the week off.

    This. Quiet accounts are perfect for college students, you'd have all shift to do your homework. Right now I just do it on weekends for some extra money.
