      And for the job I went for...she said nothing about per diem. Eating on the road can be expensive. I'd be eating out of a cooler...lots of tuna packets. HAHA!

        What is it about providing your own weapon that I find so shady? I would be scared that if I used force they would throw you under the bus when the lawsuit happens...... Like I said if you need a job bad I would take it and use it as a stepping stone but corrections and law enforcement should not be outsourced to private companies.

          Especially when you think about the little fact that when a person is charged/convicted it is the "state of XYZ or the US Government vs John or Jane Doe"...Just sayin!!!

            Not a bit unusual for private industry. Unless I wanted a POS .38 wheel gun, when I was in Armored Cars, I was required to have my own weapon -----(yep one of the reasons I left that job QUICKLY)
            Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

            My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

              Ask yourself this question, what is your end goal here? Are you trying to get into LE?

              If you are, from personal experience, I would start looking at city/county jails or the DOC system. Get hired and work your tail off demonstrating your commitment, desire, and dedication. Take on specialty assignments/specialty team opportunities, promote, etc. In my opinion this will be more beneficial than working private transport.

                Just curious how much did the armored car company pay? Before I got on with BOP i was an unarmed security guard making $12 an hour. I almost applied for an armed security guard position thinking it would pay more (knowing how to use a firearm is skilled labor right?). Anyways I didnt waste my time because it paid the exact same as what I was already making.

                  $12.50 an hr as a driver. $14.50 an hr ($18/hr topped out) as the armed messenger. Worked 50-55 hrs a week so the OT helped mitigate the crappy pay. Was issued a ballistic vest but the company took $10 out every paycheck until it was paid for! Fairly physically demanding job. LOTS of attractive women working at banks though!

                    So you had to buy your own gun and protective vest and then received ****ty pay on top of that? That really sucks! The company I worked for (Allied-Barton) took money out of our paycheck to pay for our uniforms. I got the money back once I quit and turned in my uniforms but it took a few months and I had to keep harassing HR about it. On top of that the initial training that I had with the company was unpaid and then additional training after that was at minimum wage. I kind of wonder if I should contact the department of labor about that..... Anyways thats where my negative feelings about private security firms and private for-profit prisons comes from.

                      I didn't have to provide my own weapon but I wish I could've. The company I worked for issued a S&W .38 and we had to carry that. As for the vest issue, the ones that weren't willing to pay, didn't wear them.

                      In Washington, pay ranges for security varies. Can be as little as $10-$12 up to $25-$30 for large corporation (Boeing) and federal (Federal Buildings) contracts.

                      Anyway, I'm not a big fan of privatized law enforcement work. Pay, hiring practices, training, work conditions, benefits, etc. typically suck.

                        Painful memories... It's all coming back to me now. DON'T DO IT! I worked there for a year, hence the user name.
