Betsy, hope you don't get rain today!
Hope we don't get rain today also..our new Inverter/Charger is supposed to get here today and Steve can't install it in the rain. We have been living off our batteries since Sat. nite when the inverter went out. The new one was supposed to be delivered Thurs, but "it got put on the wrong truck". FedEX always has an excuse!
Got some rain, flooded the area yesterday...ugh!!!! However, the sun came out today and with 20 + mph winds and gusts up to 30 - 35 the area is just about dried up!!!! We also have an inverter to install once the weather clears up but there is no hurry for us.

How did you get Sitewatch to respond? I have sent the employment app twice and never had the courtesy of a reply or even an acknowledgement.


I sent Cole an email. You can get his address from their web site. After about 2 weeks, he responded via email. We talked a bit electronically, then he called me.

Hope that helps!

We just joined this site and have been toying with the idea of gate guarding. There seems to be so much to learn and know about how to get a job, how to find a good company to work for, what to expect from those comanies. If anyone has any input for a newbie, please let us know. If anyone has any web sites that might be useful, we would appreciate the links and/or suggestions.
For now we are reading the back posts on this topic.

Google blogs on Gate Guarding. www.myoldrv.com and others will get you in the loop. As in every industry there are good and bad companies. A lot of us commenting here are with Gate Guard Services out of Corpus Christi. Take everything with a "grain of salt"; but the companies with bad reputations stand out pretty clear. Communication is difficult-these are busy people and a LOT of people are curious about the job-and you have to ask questions and be persistent.

............Understand , No ONE , with any sense is going too comeout and provide a listing of the UNdesirable companies and their poor managenment and attitude practices !!! That information should be conveyed through private messaging .
............The actual job involves recording employe name , tag number , company name , location visited , date\time in and date\time out ! The majority of your education will involve learning which supplies you need too sustain yourself for a 2 week period , dealing with the mud , rain , hot weather , cold weather , keeping your RV as clean as possible , keeping mama happy , the psychology of dealing with stupid company men , roughnecks not wanting too stop and be logged in when they're running late and a myrid of other situations the imagination cannot begin too fathom , lol !
............If , you need an income to sustain yourself , like the solitude of wideopen spaces , the beauty of a TEXAS SUNRISE or sunset , cattle meandering along a bobwire fence looking for that last clump of green grass , then you'll enjoy the job ! , jf

I guess that would be a 'Well, it depends.'

If I have actual first hand experience which I know to be true and factual, I have no problem reporting those facts in a Public Forum where it will get as much exposure as possible. It could be a scam, an unscrupulous RV dealer, repair shop or gate guard company.
