Does any security work not suck?

Postby Cornfed » February 25th, 2015, 7:44 am

I'm not talking about high-end ex-special forces stuff, but the usual stuff like static guarding, bouncing, transporting cash, crowd controlling and the former guvment work newly being contracted such as prisoner transport and electronic bail & probation monitoring. It seems to me that while it might seem OK on the outside, it all in practice sucks, being boring, confrontational, having scheduling problems and paiding a pittance. Am I wrong? Does any of it not suck?

In China there is a very large security industry propped up by the government to lower employment rate. Since there is no real need for private security and no one cares about enforcing anything the job is very easy but extremely boring. Most young Chinese guys just play on their phones their whole shift.

How about the West and elsewhere?
