Is A Security Job Supposed To Be A Low Paid Job by Holluwatarhyor(m): 12:13pm On Jun 14, 2022
In all honesty,I don't think security guards in companies should be paid lower than the average office workers in companies,

I mean,how do you expect someone who sometimes won't go home to make sure the company's properties are safe during the midnight,even during the day,they make sure properties are safe.

A security guard getting paid with 15,000 naira in a month is too poor,educated or not,they are protecting lives.

NO, they should not.
They protect lives and safe properties.

The security jobs you see with low pay are probably contract security companies.
Their pay is usually not good.

Their employers believe that,
They're often low skilled and numerous people can do them, so the need to pay employees well is low....which is wrong!

The most neglected department in any sector

Well thats the work am doing but was sack

Mine was in a bank the pay is 31k but there will be increment this month i ve work there for years

There was fire outbreak in that same bank last year and i was one of those who make sure they stop the fire

We stopped the fire before the fire service dept came me and 3 other guys a security and 2 drivers. This bank till today didnt appreciate us but rush to give federal and state fire dept 100k each

In this same bank
A religional complainant has pushed a pregnant lady who happens to be a customer care service attendent and nothing happen

But i was asked to stop work because i accosted a girl who tresspassed into the bank premises on Saturday thats not a work day

They didn't even know if the girl is a criminal or a spy but they asked me to stop work

I thank God cause i wont do that work forever

Currently am learning programming course

But it painful how this people don't regard security guards in this country

Nigerians are wicked people. Once employers notice many people are unemployed they start to exploit workers

That's the problem with that industry. Apart from the very low wages, issue of disrespect and unrecognised profession is there. In other climes like the western countries, security personnel takes more money than office workers in most cases. They negotiate their pay and have many incentives attached but in Nigeria, you are looked down on, because you are a security personnel.

Slavery thrives in Nigeria more than anything.

In Nigeria, the more sufferisticated and dangerous your job is, the lesser you earn.
Ask Brick layers, military recruits, conductors, Agberos and Bank Cashiers.

And the more soft your work is, the bigger you earn.
Ask Politicians, CEOs, and oil company workers.

It's unfortunate.

OP, are you a mere-guard, I mean officer without weapon?

Sincerely speaking, it's the recruitment company that caused it, I was once an officer (security man from Santana security services) and my pay no dey reach me to transport myself to the company (duty post) and even my life was at risk, factory workers will group themselves and omo n'ile combined and will be waiting outside the premises to devour an innocent person like me.

I agree with you but don't be too fast to say they are protecting lives and properties. You will be shocked to see some of your security men running ahead of you on the day the bad guys will storm your company/house

That's why we have a minimum wage. No worker should be paid below the minimum wage.

Our minimum wage is way too minimum sef. Hmm!
