Thank you, Dylan, for setting an example! You can read a little bit about him below:
Tell me about yourself:
I was born in Midland, MI, but I lived in the Pinconning area for most of my life. I worked at a factory before I got into security work; I ran their robotics and drove a forklift for inventory while I was there.
When did you begin working for STT?
I started working for STT about 4 or 5 months ago. I was looking for a new job and saw an ad on Indeed. I applied, got an interview, and was lucky enough to get the job. I started working at [a university] and have been there since.
What drew you to security work?
I was interested in it because it was structured and not as repetitive. I’m not stuck in one spot all day – I’m able to move around and generally have more freedom on the job. I haven’t had any real issues with anyone working in security so far – apart from college students who don’t like being told they’re breaking the rules. All in all though, I’m really enjoying security work.
What do you like about working for STT?
STT is a good company. You can tell they care about their employees and not just about making a profit. Everything I’ve ever needed help with, I will get a reply within about half a day. They work with their employees and care about them – especially Kathy in HR – she is always very responsive. I have no complaints about the job or the company.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy the people and interacting with others – just meeting new people in general. There are new things every day, each day is different, and I think that keeps things fresh and interesting.
What does an average day of work look like?
It depends. Some days its slow, some days its really busy. Sometimes people just need help being let into buildings that they locked themselves out of. Other times, we respond to things that are much more serious; it just depends on the day. Usually I start with patrols throughout campus, going through buildings – we check for smoke, unlocked doors, any water damage or ice hazards, illegally parked cars – things like that. Occasionally we will dispatch or do access control at the gates too.
