Hire Learning: How to hire – and train – a security guard - Marijuana Business Magazine
When looking to hire a guard for a marijuana company, it’s important to consider the environment in which the individual will be working.
Cannabis companies have a clientele that might not take too kindly to intimidating authority figures. So you want to strike a balance between presenting a deterrent to any would-be criminals, but you don’t want to scare away your customers, either.
“What we like is people who look like they can handle themselves in a situation that they need to be an authoritative figure,” said Michael Julian, CEO and president of MPS International, a full-service security firm headquartered in Southern California. “But you can’t have some ninja-killer Navy Seal standing at the door intimidating people as they walk in.”
Here are factors three security company executives consider when hiring for the position, searching for a suitable candidate and training and managing that individual.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR
A security guard must convey a presence that might make someone think twice about robbing a store, maintain a cool and calm demeanor and view customer service as a top priority.
