When did you join the Paladin Family?
I joined Paladin just over a month ago on May 5th.
Why did you get into the Security Industry & why Paladin?
This is my first actual Security job and previous to this, I was with a pharmaceuticals company. I've had some friends who have been in security and when I saw that Paladin was hiring, I applied and got a position. I feel as though I'm surrounded with great people and leadership, it's very comforting.
What interests you most about your job?
I'd have to say the fact that I get to build my own reputation and I really like that. There are also a lot of opportunities that I get to work under pressure; the feeling that there's always eyes on us. Also, being in Healthcare, it's a great feeling when people are relieved when we're called and arrive at a tense situation.
What advice would you give someone entering the Security Industry today?
I would tell them to make sure that they have a solid routine like going to bed on time. Because we work in shifts, you can't let the lack of sleep catch up and stop you from performing your best. Also, catching up on life during your days off is a big thing and being active really makes a difference.
Describe paladin in one-two words.
Professional and educating. They really make sure that we're fully trained and prepared before being sent out to our site.
