Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,240 members

Preliminary Job interview tomorrow

Posted by Gus, on Mon Jan 04, 2010 3:40 am
I rang a security company only 15 minutes from home this afternoon to say g;day and let them know i had finished my pre licence security course. They visited the training group where we were being taught and expressed an interest in us going for a "chat". So I rang them and I have a prelim interview tomorrow. Now the thing is they understand that I still have 6 weeks or so before I receive my licence yet are still willing to talk employment. So wish me luck as I head towards starting my new career.

Good luck with job Interview Mate!!---Seems like we have both done similar jobs ( Proffesional  Big Vehicle driving)  & now Security.

Many years ago I started as a Mobile Dog Patrol man with a UK National security company. I later got promoted to Senior Controller & then Night Manager.

We did Mobile Patrols,Static guards, CIT " Cash In Transit", Data Runs, & Blue Light runs: ( Live human organs , accompanied by a Police car)---

It was good fun , sometimes a little lonely, & we had a big turn over of staff as the wages were not that good.However I enjoyed it, as I was fit and a lot younger then.

Anyway best wishes & I hope it all goes well for you....Cheers...Pete.

Thansk Rach and Pete

I enjoyed the trainign for sure learning wht rights we have , powers of arrest etc. And the weird thing is I havent been near a truck in 6 weeks and I haven't missed it at all. I will start out working at clubs and sporting and cultural events, then move onto night patrols,, I would like to eventually work with dogs,, do the electronic stuff EG ATm's and alarms,, with my eventual goal of getting a bachelors degree in security,, Sounds weird but we can do one. I just started learning Eskrima which is a Filipino martial art and I think it will really help with the club situations. Check it out on the web if you don't know what it is. its fascinating.  Thanks again my friends,, talk soon

Well. it went well, fro, what was said I,m now on the books. So for the next 6 weeks till I get my licence I have to train 2 days a week, from 12 - 5 pm. Things like how to talk to people, how to remove drunk and quarrlesome clients from pubs and clubs,, how to restrain a violent person and take downs,,, so it should be interesting. I felt like the old man amongst the young blokes though but then I have the smarts over them lol,,
