Security Of A Mine Site.

Mature Security Officers Required.
Security Officer:
1. We are not the police, don't try to be one. 2. Think before you act. 3. Remember nothing is personal. 4. The client pays the bills, don't shit where you eat. 5. The client is the boss, employees of the client may not be the boss. 6. We work to to live, not the other way round, leave the stress at work. 7. If working as part of a team, be a team member not an individual. 8. If you are the team leader, your team is the priority, they will keep you alive, treat them accordingly. 9. Before embarking on this career, join the Army, Police or similar, under 30 years old with no sharp end experience can give the industry a bad name with use of force breaches and general attitude issues to the public.

Cons: Problems with un-ruly teen-agers.
July 2014
Not For The Timid.
Security Officer:
This job is not for the timid. We frequently deal with combative patients. Many of these patients are infected with Hep C or HIV. These patients will not hesitate to spit, throw things or strike. You have to be mentally prepared for these attacks and little or no support from medical staff. You will frequently have medical staff try to pawn their job off on you and then try to report you for “not doing your job” when you don’t cooperate. Please understand that this is extremely common and shows no sign of changing.
July 2014
Security Officer:
Pros: Every body has a chance to do the job and we are like a family.
Cons: Unable to further my study due to straight day shift.
