Are you one of those people who have trouble sleeping at night? Would you rather sleep during the day? What if I told you that it was possible to make money by staying up at night or just by being a light sleeper? Would you be interested in having a company pay you for your sleeping problems?
Working at night can have lots of benefits. It allows you to have some time during the day when you can accomplish tasks such as paying bills, etc. that you are unable to accomplish when you work a full-time regular day job. If your spouse works nights, it is beneficial to your relationship if you both work nights. So where can you find a good night job?
–Answering Alarms Could Be the Answer
Alarm companies monitor businesses whose alarm has gone off at night. This is usually by accident and requires a simple visit to check things out. This requires the Alarm Response Agency to hire individuals who answer the alarm notifications. They then contact the individual responsible for going to the premises to determine the cause of the alarm. Many times, going out to the premises is done by the owner or manager of the company. This can be very frustrating since they may need to respond to numerous calls during one night – let alone 365 days of every year. Since this is the least welcome aspect of the business, the owner/manager often is relieved to have someone else take over this responsibility.
–How to Get Started
The Yellow Pages of your local phone company is a good place to start your search for work. Look under Security Systems, Security Alarms, and Business Security. They may indicate that you need to look in a different section. After you have a list of companies, contact each of them by telephone. Ask if they have a Human Resources or Personnel Department that handles hiring. If not, ask them who does the hiring for Alarm response personnel.
Another good method of locating an alarm company is when you visit any of your local businesses, look for a sticker on their door or window. Make a note of the alarm agency information. You can then contact them using the White Pages of your local phone company.
–Requirements for Alarm Company Employees
Most agencies will require that you be at least 18 years of age. Each has their own regulations for alarm company employees. Some states will require you to obtain a license to perform this type of service. Check with the prospective company to see if your state requires this type of license. They will also be able to tell you how much the license costs and how long it takes to obtain one. If your state does require a license, you will probably have to have a criminal background check and submit your fingerprints to the local law enforcement agency. All of this information can be obtained from the alarm company.
