Jeep, I am not speaking for anyone here, but I made the same inquiry. The answer I got was a flat "no" on the part time work.

Dropped them a resume a few years back, they never replied. Always posting for jobs and no reply equals didn't want the job anyways.

Did the same, also contacted them. Was also able to talk to those inside, and the feeling I got was early career type individuals in their mid to late 20s, are what they seek. Not too many women. They have the luxury of not responding to emails because they get around 2,000 applications, with only 10 to 20 to choose.

I did contact Thomas Dale & Associates, they were a lot more responsive/informative, not much online contact, they prefer phone calls for inquiries, I suppose.

If they have that luxury, then they should stop Posting in every classified available. Just my opinion, but for a company always advertising for needing people, replies to qualified resumes would be wise. Even if a thanks but no thanks. Others I view business a little differently.

This isn't about the company responding or not responding to stuff from years ago or any application sent in not associated with this thread.

Snyder as far as I know, has been open and responded to all inquires sent to his email address. We hold those who ask to post to a certain standard. We're not always perfect, but we do rectify it, immediately once we find out there is an issue.

What may have happened via other methods or in the past does not do Snyder or anyone who is reading this thread justice.

If Snyder is dropping the ball, then fire away. If not, or you haven't submitted via him then it's not really an issue for this thread.

Thanks

No worries or rush for Snyder to respond. I appreciate the reply Old Soldier. If he answers, he answers.

He will answer, eventually.

I inquired about work from them, recently, on a part-time basis and was responded to in an appropriate amount of time. Afterward, I was invited to their "try-out" in NYC, which I considered for a while. I am just a bit too far away from the city for it to be practical for me, and I will not relocate to NY or another part of Jersey. I am 51 one years old, without a college degree and they were well aware of it. They offered me the try-out based off of my experience, not my age. AND the fact that at 51, I can still smoke most people physically that are 20 years my junior.

The recruiter was professional, timely, and very honest. It was just not a good match for me personally at this time.

YMMV.

If I may...

Before this spirals in a negative direction, I would like to weigh in with what little I do know. I will try to do this without violating and OPSEC/PERSEC.

I know Snyder, he has shown himself in our few interactions to be an extremely professional person, and a man of his word. I don't know everything about what he does, but I know he has many jobs, and is not primarily a recruiter. After looking back through this thread, he never promised anyone a job, he was putting information into a community that deserves the opportunity, and is made up of men with character. That is not a guarantee, just giving information. I don't know for sure, but it seems that some of the ads mentioned on other sights are in constant rotation, whether they are in a hiring cycle or not. Don't shoot the messenger, he posted information during a hiring time, and has posted updates. I don't see where he did anything wrong.

I have noticed that a lot of the more recent questions (from very new members) are answered on the website he provided after about two minutes of searching around. It seems that doing [I]your own[I] research has always been a point in this community, if you can't find that time, don't blame Snyder. He also provided his personal e-mail early in the thread too. If you have a question, I don't think sending him an e-mail is unreasonable, and I'm sure you'll get a response faster than waiting for him to come back here to update the information. Again, the website he provided is fairly full of information regarding locations and employment locations, and anything else could be asked via e-mail, some stuff may not need to be posted in the open.

I can neither confirm nor deny anything, and everyone will make their judgment based off their own experience, but please don't buy into gossip either. Some people will say "they only hire if you are this or that", and post incorrect information. Snyder posted information in an environment where it would be well used, and by giving his e-mail out, I imagine offered more of a leg up than if you were to e-mail a RECRIUT@XXXXXX address. Sometimes it just doesn't work out, sometimes (unfortunately, it sounds like VT in this case) good guys are just overlooked or miss the hiring window. Take that for what it is, but again, it is certainly not Snyder who should be the focus of any discontent.

Please, I meant this in the most respectful way, and I do NOT represent him or the company that he works for. I know him to be professional, and after reading the thread, it seems that some negative attention could have been avoided by people doing their research or taking the time to write him a personal e-mail. Again, I DO NOT represent anyone but myself and my own observations.

My .02, sorry if it seems inappropriate.

No one went after him. I'm still not clear why anyone would feel the need to follow up on something I handled.

Be that as it may, if the company is screwing people over or dropping the ball, then he should be questioned or challenged. He is the member here. I haven't seen any problems with him. He appears to respond in a reasonable time so I'm not sure why there is any ongoing defense or implied attack.

Like any company, if a member has a beef then I expect the rep to answer for it. If the company is doing the right thing, regardless of how their corporate HQ's uses marketing then there is no issue.

Everyone should drop it unless they have some specific problems or questions.

For those that smoke and don't qualify under this company's guidelines, try andrewsinternationaldotcom. I worked for them personally since 2007 as an Executive Protection Specialist. It is ran by former LAPD SWAT guys. They are easy to work for, love part-timer EP guys and the check always cashes at the bank.

I still work for them from time to time whenever a VIP or Dignitary Protection Detail, Robbery Surveillance, Burglary Surveillance or Anti-Piracy Detail is required in the Palm Springs area. It is not consistent work by any means and it isn't extremely glamorous as most would think. I did work on a protective detail for a man who was at the time, the 33rd richest man in the world. In that detail, we coordinated with the U.S. Marshals since one of the Supreme Court Justice's were in attendance, Governors of other states in the U.S. as well as Attorney Generals and some Wealthy Benefactors. Other than that detail, I have worked Anti-Papparazi details for celebrities in LA and Hollywood, when they are desperate enough for someone that they are willing to pay extra due to the 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or need a point of contact at the company.

FEB 2012 - Submitted resume to Gavin de Becker & Associates
MARCH 2012 - An email stating I have qualified for 1st phase of selection, physical readiness test (PRT).
APRIL 2012 - Myself and 19 other men/women show up to the Physical Readiness Test at designated location and time.

End result, nobody from Gavin de Becker showed up. We had to contact them and the response was that an emergency arose with their client last night. The test was cancelled and an apology was issued by them. Great first impression.
