    Frequently asked questions

    Is your career as a security guard in need of a fresh role? Security and protection companies across the nation are looking on Glassdoor for the right guards to fill their team. If you're just starting out, an entry-level security guard job can provide you with the training and baseline skills to get started. Having previous security experience lets you explore more senior security guard roles with added pay and responsibilities.

    Since being a security guard is a physical position, those unsure about the demands of the job are encouraged to seek out part-time security guard openings instead. If you have previous military, police, or firearm experience, you can apply for an armed security guard role to capitalize on your work history. You can also search for full-time, part-time, and contract positions.

    Security guards must be prepared for anything, so we've put together the top security guard interview questions that will give you an edge above other applicants.

    There's always some amount of risk associated with working security detail and companies offer higher entry wages compared to other industries. The amount of risk or the value of what you're guarding often translates directly into more compensation, but how can you be sure you're being offered a fair salary?

    1. You can compare security guard salaries based on location, experience level, and company, as each of these factors plays a significant role in pay offerings.
    2. Make sure the position you're applying for lines up with where you are in your security guard career. Senior positions will warrant higher pay, but that doesn't mean you can't find a high-paying entry-level position.
    3. Practice the skills necessary to be a successful security guard to impress companies during the interview process. Critical thinking, physical fitness, performance under pressure, and de-escalating situations are a few of the most sought-after traits in security guards.

    Working as a security guard comes with unique challenges that you need to take into account when reviewing any job offer. Take your time to look for benefits including:

    • Primary health insurance and worker's compensation to protect you from on-the-job accidents
    • Paid and ongoing training on proper security tactics to expand your skill set
    • Extra pay for overnight or holiday shifts
