Gate Guard Services Provided
Some security officers really enjoy providing gate guard services at apartment complexes, condominiums, or any type of gated community. Depending on the size of the community, and the shift worked, you may spend quite a bit of time in solitude if working the night shift. Typically when working gate guard services, you are positioned in front of the building at a window and gate where residents have passes and automatic gate entry. However, anyone who does not have a pass, or may have forgotten theirs, needs to show identification for entry. A lot of times guests may need to show ID to enter as well. Depending on the rules of the building, they may request that residents leave visitors names at the door.
