Recently, security guards at Travis Scott concert revealed they were hired without any qualifications

A woman, who was hired as a security guard along with her husband and nephew, revealed some facts about Astroworld. She claimed that no one informed her about the kind of work she had to do. At the same time, she was not trained or asked for her credentials. While talking about the tragic incident at the Travis Scott concert, she said:

“I did not think that I was going to have to be the one to stop people from knocking down fences from jumping over fences, and having to literally sit there and help people pick up bodies. Do you think I would have signed up for that for $500?”

On the other hand, Darius Williams, who was also hired for a similar job, said:

“It was pretty vague exactly what the roles would be. The day before Astroworld, I completed the orientation and the training for the process, and when I arrived on Friday morning around 7 a.m., they were still pretty vague. [They] didn’t really tell us what we would be doing.”

So far, Travis Scott and his team have not responded to this new development. However, it seems pretty alarming to see such carelessness for such a huge event.
