Job Description:

_ Veteran-owned security company offering the highest paid armed and unarmed posts in the Reno and Sparks area _Designated Defense pays more than everyone else because we want new and experienced security officers that want to work in security, have a good work history, and want to join a growing company that respects them as professionals. The Jobs We started a year ago, now have about 200 employees throughout Nevada. Our armed and unarmed security assignments range from events, festivals, conventions, concerts, and such, to more static posts at retail establishments, fire watches, and lots more. Our security guards need to be able to follow post orders, report incidents, use radio communications, maintain logs, and interact with customers and the public. We are hands off deterrence. Our Expectations We expect our security officers to be mature, professional, and dependable in work performance, presence, and ethics. That means showing up to work on time, carrying out post orders in a professional manner; not distracted with smart phones; no smoking, vaping, or chewing while at work; combing your hair (if you have any), keeping your beard trimmed (if you have one), and tucking your shirt in. Some Requirements Active PILB Security Guard Card (which covers a lot of general employment minimums). Unarmed security guards should have relevant experience and must have a documented work history (have you held any single job for at least 6 months, do you have at least a year of work experience). We are hiring people to be security guards, not just a warm body to stand a post. Armed security guards must have military, law enforcement, or equivalent training and experience. Unarmed guards should come prepared with a functional flashlight, black shoes, pants, and belt. We provide company polo shirts. Our armed guards must also have their own firearm, retention holster, duty belt, and NIJ Level III or better body armor. Our Pay Our lowest paid work in the Reno area is $21 per hour, plus paid lunch breaks and time and mileage compensation when the work is not immediately in Reno and Sparks. Think about that as you compare prospective employers. Okay, for transparency, our highest paid work is $24. That is the nature of the security industry, relatively flat pay range. Our goal as a company is to pay people the highest rate possible and to sustain that across all posts and assignments. We pay every two weeks. Hiring Process Apply via Indeed. We will then text you an introduction so that we might start a conversation. Please be prepared to provide a copies of your PILB card and drivers license, fill out our employment application, and be ready to discuss your qualifications and experience. We are conducting immediate telephone interviews, meeting in person when appropriate, and hiring now, not days or weeks from now.
