Question by Alex: What is the average pay for a security officer in the Philadelphia, PA area? What is the high/low?
What is the average pay for a security officer/public safety officer/security guard in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania? What, if any, difference in pay is there between contract and private security? What would you consider a wage that would sustain life in the metro area?
Answer by postal p
You are looking at anywhere between $ 8.00 to $ 15.00 per hour. Some of the contract look to really get away with minimum wage. You will do better with a decent private company. Many of the higher paid security jobs are policemen picking up a little extra off duty. In the Philly area, even if you get in the 12 -15 range, you still will need a part time job to support a family. Good Luck!
