    I've had a few ACT235 jobs. The best paying was $20.00 an hour working as a guard on federal property. Check out your local federal bldg including SS and IRS. Talk to those guards.

    I would think with your background a supervisory position with a security agency would certainlly be a possibility. Good Luck
    This would be my suggestion as well. Try for some sort of corporate security position, ideally in management. Usually not the greatest pay in the world, even at the management levels, but much higher than most run-of-the-mill security jobs.
    It is unfortunate that security work doesn't pay well. I guess in most cases, the illusion of security trumps actual security.

    Where I work is looking for a p/t officer, but I would think that the distance is to far for you. The job is in Bushkill. PM me if you should want any info.

    Im not sure if this was mentioned or not but if you get ACT 235 it opens up opportunities for free lance security work. Such as event security or during the holidays for certain things. You shoudnt depend on stuff like this but freelance jobs usually come available a few times throughout the year so its nice to do stuff like that to make some extra cash. Oh free lance stuff usually pays pretty good too compared to a normal security job.

    If they are not bonded, then forget about it.
