Not so new newbie.

I keep reading about everyone qq'ing at the money you make in this line of work, and how there isn't as much of it to go around anymore. How companies like Safeguard pay so low it's not worth it.

Seems you guys are out of touch with the rest of the world that aren't college grads or aren't private contractors.

For myself, coming into this line of work from Factories and Warehousing, I'm making like 4-5 times more than I was, I have no boss ordering me around, I'm not doing the same boring thing over and over, and I spend 1/2 my day driving and taking pictures. The list goes on...

I started in this line of work making $10/hr for a crook that made bank off me doing good work at low pay. I didn't mind because of the things listed above, and I was getting my foot in the door and learning a new thing. Over the course of that year I slowly acquired all the tools and knowledge I needed to do this on my own.

I know, for a fact, that Safeguard is still paying me lousy money because during that year for the crook we were working off National Field Representation. (NFR)

However, I'm still learning and still making more money than before which is always good. Maybe in 6-12 months I'll take that exp and move on to another company? Who knows?

In the meantime I'm working, loving it, and getting that weird high from exploring new houses kind of like Storage Hunters... and Wars ... actually getting paid to break into houses

You my friend are just what every regional and national is looking for. To quote you "I started in this line of work making $10/hr for a crook that made bank off me doing good work at low pay. I didn't mind because of the things listed above, and I was getting my foot in the door and learning a new thing." and one more "I know, for a fact, that Safeguard is still paying me lousy money" Hell if you are that happy THINKING you are making money I may get back in the biz and hire you! Give it a year and when all the smoke clears you make sure you come back on here and tell us how happy you are. Taxes, insurance, equipment breakdowns, preventative maintenance, accounting fees, time spent uploading, PCRs, and my all time favorite the cubicle monkey that has absolutely no idea what it is you do and wants to charge you back for b/s reasons. You are still on your honeymoon and the day that reality sets in you will be looking for a good divorce attorney. But till then good luck!
