I increase my chances for employment?
You many increase your chances for employment
by following these simple
- Make sure that you meet all the
requirements spelled in the "Job Updates".
- Be ready to stop by for a job interview in
very short notice, and especially in weekends,
late at night or very early mornings, during
holydays, and as a general rule 24/7. If you
feel uncomfortable coming by yourself bring
someone else with you, but only for the job
interview. If hired, you will need to be
comfortable to be alone at night, to be able to
perform properly at your post. We often
interview around midnight, at 5 AM, and almost
always in weekends. This is a pre-selection
process design to assess people's motivation.
- If you come for a job interview be ready to
start immediately, if hired. Understand that
just because you showed up it doesn't
necessarily mean that you already have a job,
but being able to start immediately rather than
in a week or two will place you in the front
- Please do not ask personal questions. Limit
yourself to job-related questions, such as work
schedule, proper uniform, or general questions
about security business. I do not answer
personal questions such as "Why I never heard
about Denver Security", "How many accounts do
you have", "Where are they located", "Where are
you from", and so on. In a word, be
- At the job interview be frank about the
schedule that you can really work, so if hired,
we can avoid frequent changes in work schedule.
Let me know if you have any limitation such as
school, family, church, community activity, or
other commitments. It will pay off for you in
the long run.
- If hired, sometimes "It just doesn't work
out", for a million reasons or no reason at
all. Please remain professional and return the
uniforms so we can mail or hand you the check
soon after we receive them back. Please have
the courtesy to return them in the same shape
you receive them, which will be washed, ironed,
and on a cloth hanger. You will be treated with
dignity and respect even if things will not
- Please do not apply if you are looking for
a second night job where you think you may
"keep a low profile", so you go to your day job
rested. Although the security job is mostly
quiet and you may or may not have some time on
your hands, you need to be alert and keep an
eye on the place. I know all the tricks and the
hiding places and snoozing on the job will
spell the end of our working relationship.
- If you do not receive an email after the
job interview, please do not email or call
back. The other day I was writing an email to
congratulate one of the people interviewed
three days ago, and get him started, when I got
an email from him cursing me for not hiring
him. You bet I moved to Nr. 2 and thank the
other guy for showing his real attitude before
the start of employment.
Thank you for your time and patience.
