Bouncing Is a Pretty Sweet Deal

Saw a few posts a while back about college guys asking if they should bounce, and were getting negative responses.

I just got a job with a security company that does the bars and frat/sorority houses around campus.

Worked at a frat tonight for the first time. Had a fun as shit time. I think i got more phone numbers in the four hours i worked there, than the 2 months i’ve been at school here. It’s something about just walking around in a shirt with ‘SECURITY’ on the back, every guys wants pat you on the back and every girl wants to kiss you on the cheek.

If you’re at college, and you’re a resonable size, i would definatly check out bouncing/security. It’s pretty fun, and it’s definatly an easy way to get phone numbers.

the only negative i can see is that you give up ure night to go out drinking,

The sooner you lose that mindset, the better for you and your team. Seriously.

Bullshit! When you need to,fight hard,but the rest of time have fun if you can(making new friends and pulling girls included).
Just avoid drinking while you work,even a few drinks could be a problem.I get aggressive and lose self-control when I drink so when I work I avoid any alcohol.Just a few Redbulls to keep me awake.

IT depends on your situation. I worked a bar when I was in college. Worst problem may be some drunken ass you’d have to ‘escort’ outside. I wouldn’t take a bouncing job in Manhattan though, there’s a real big difference between some drunken college kids and some of the serious ‘trouble’ that can wander into the more popular city joints.

sorry if you got the wrong idea. i wasn’t trying to say that i’m billy badass. if anything, i was trying to be more social, i’d much rather smile and talk a guy out, then have to get physical.

i only meant that had i attended this party, i would of just been another guy there, but simply wearing a shirt changes peoples perception of you so quickly.

and u’re right stu, i doubt i’d want to work a major city club either. but thre definatly is a difference between the types of ppl that are going there, and the types of ppl at a frat party.

Something like a visiting rugby team, that just lost. The only good thing then is they’re drunk. That’s when fast is your friend. The crazy days!

“Right Boot”

Liquid447, how old are you? I’m 18 almost 19 (less than a week actually).

I posted on here asking about being a doorman, sent off an application form, about a week or so ago, not heard back yet. And frat houses seem pretty easy, thats like security at my Uni nights, no trouble happens, you’d know loads of people, but some of the clubs in the city centre are a different story.

I’ve been considering this. I’m not huge but I’m bigger than well over half the bouncers at a strip of clubs that is literally right next door to my dorm.

It seems easy, there’s hardly violence. And they hire a shitload of them cuz theres about 6 bars/clubs in a 1 block strip. The worse I’d have to deal with is a drunk frat boy, there nobody particularly street tough there.

I turned 21 in dec of 2007.

yeah, i did the whole application thing too. but what would be better is if you could meet the manager in person. the places i put a form in i didn’t even hear back from, the guys i talked to in person worked out for me.

i’d go a few hours early, b4 the rush comes in. ask to speak to the manager, and then tell him you’d be interested in working the door/security.

Just remember not to think of it as something that is super relaxed, got to realize something wrong can happen in only a few seconds and if your not prepared you can get yourself hurt or worse others.

Friend of mine bounced at a gay club in Guam a few years back, made good money with very low threat. Worst he ever dealt with was when a couple dykes got into a fight and he had to pull them apart and kick them out. Most of the time it was just queers slapping at each other, and he would just walk them out with no hassle. He tried to get me to do it too, but part of his duties were to get on stage and strip down to a gold banana hammock. Not my thing, sorry…not sure I could do that for chicks even.

Aways remember, booze makes some people crazy. I did it for four and a half years seen people change from decent to fucked up within a couple of hours. Always check the foot ware, and never let a drunk in.

Nothing gets more respect than a guy in a SECURITY t-shirt.

Get prepared to deal with this…

dude you seem pretty young for security. im sure thats why no one has contacted you. maybe when you turn 20 or something

What’s with all the hate for frat boys? I was one and I could handle my own against most anyone where I went to school and back home.
