I also have an opportunity working for another Bike Patrol security company but I'd rather work in an office position as I'm tired dealing with the homeless as I did that for 10 years as bike patrol for another company.
Anyways, as I was walking to my restaraunt from my job, I was contemplating life and why this happened and what I'll be doing next. As I got closer to my eating place, I ran into the maintenance guy I've done work for and his boss. I told him of my two week notice. They asked me what I would do. I told them either apply for a job as security or look for another locksmith job. The maintenance guy's boss just bought the building they were in. He made a suggestion that I work with the maintenance guy under construction, work on the lock, and do security. He asked me how much I got paid. I told him $10 an hour and that the bike patrol is willing to pay $13.75 an hour, so he knows I have that option.
I'm willing to learn some construction work and such, I asked if I can have a room for myself so I can bring in my key machines to make my work faster and he agreed. I don't know if this is full time yet, or just temporary. Just asking, how much do you think I should ask for and should it be under the table? If I am using my own equipment and such I was thinking of asking for $15. But if he wants to hire me as a regular it would be okay with me as long as he pays for the material himself. The boss is a real estate guy who lives in Beverly Hill and has a lot of money but is also careful in how he spends that money.
I just thank God that the day I got that two week notice, I also got another job opportunity. God works in mysterious ways!
